Anyway, let start the topic about "THE YEAR OF iPAD 2" from Steve Job. Being a so called "Fans BOY" or "APPLE's product just work". I would like to say APPLE has given me a lot of time to do my own things instead of troubleshoot every single problem that happen during the installation.
I will think this year is really "iPad 2" year. Not because I am a fans boy but with all the APPS that work on iPad. The development teams behind it. The new features that support in iOS 4.3. The hardware that syncing with the device. No other competitor will able to meet it basic functions.
APPS - Apple has a great team that work with developer. Provide feedback and technical support to help developer on their new apps. WIth 65k of apps that are working with iPad. Competitors are far behind from this number. Which company will able to catch up when developer are able to gain back 70% of the sales? The strategy worked so well that no one able to compete with.
APPLE - Every gadget just worked so well with one and others. For example, you may stream video from your iPhone to your APPLE TV to enjoy show on a bigger screen. You may stream your music to Airport Express's speaker to enjoy music on a HiFi system instead of the small speaker on your iPhone. That is something which separate APPLE from others. I do know that majority of People out here still using Microsoft Product. But being an APPLE user for 3 years and I would like to say once you into it. You have no choice but to stick with it as nothing else you are going to fancy about.
The price of the software, the way the gadgets worked together, the seamless setting on both hardware and software side, the impact that given to the world of human race... everything that made me LOVE APPLE more and more. And I am not able to imagine a day without Steve around. He is the GOD... cos GOD is a human but doing some extraordinary things. I do hope that he will recover soon and make this world a better place to live.
