    With the New iPad you can now use your entire monthly allotment of data in under a half hour.

    Just one 1080p movie....

    Yep, it is a big joke for the US consumer. Whats the point of LTE and 40+ Mbit, when you only got 5 to 10 GB a month... Thats like having a Ferrari down a 1 mile one way street.

    Plus Full HD on a 9.7 inch screen.. come on... Talk about an e-penis and waste. At that size, you cant see much difference (without a microscope) between this and the old iPad or one of the newer Android screens. Now make a 40+ inch version then we can talk, that can be useful.

    And even bigger irony... Full HD movies... are between 5 to 20 GB (depending on how long the movie is and the sound), which means.... 3 to 0 movies on the 16 GB version of the iPad, without the ability to add new space... :clap2: Apple, well thought!

    Not to mention.. HD games will also have a large GB size..

    Ohh all that was a business decision.
    It was done so they would buy the new improved version in about 9 months.

    Just feeding the addicts habits.

    You should talk to the FCC about allowing AT&T to buy T-Mobile, and then get them to free up unused broadcast TV frequencies for mobile use. In other words, it isn't the infrastructure that is having trouble keeping up, it is the government that still thinks people have never heard of cable.

    They did that deliberately to get people to use iCloud. Why do you think the new dictation feature only works if you have an active connection?
