Apple staffer tells world that iPad 2 is pointless

Written by Nick Farell


Tell us something we don't know
Just as the world is to be treated to the embarrassing spectacle of a Nuremberg style launch of the iPad 2, an un-named Apple staffer has told the press that there will be really nothing to see here.

The Cult of Mac has a deep throat inside the Apple bunker and they have said that the iPad 2 launche will be a big yawn. The iPad 3 is the one to get excited about, and it’s on track for release later this year. All we will see today is a new MobileMe service will store music, TV shows, and films that were purchased from the iTunes store. Apple is thinking of being able to upload all your music and videos to the cloud whether it was purchased from iTunes or not.

The Apple staffer said that for the iPad 2 don’t get your hopes up too high. Apple has had a number of problems along the way, and the third-generation iPad is the one to make a song and a dance about. The iPad 2 is expected to thinner and lighter than the first iPad. It will have both front- and rear-facing cameras for FaceTime videoconferencing and for photos and video. It will have a larger, beefier speaker but the screen is expected to be the same resolution as the first iPad. It will have a faster chip and more RAM, and it will likely have a Qualcomm dual-mode wireless chip for connecting to both GSM and CDMA data networks.

Of course it still will not be any use other than as a coffee tray and will be hype marketed until you will think it is god's gift to humanity.
