iPad

این متنیه که برای یکی از روزنامه های لوکال نوشتم و متاسفانه وقت نکردم ترجمه کنم اما گفتم تا بازار آیپد داغه این متن رو بذارم اینجا. با عرض پوزش چون که این نسخه  ادیت شده نهایی نیست و اگه اشتباه گرامر توش هست ببخشید.

I am not a fan boy, I never owned a Mac of any kind even in the prime time of ipod which was during my late teenage years and early twenties I refused to buy one because growing up in Iran and using Microsoft products I strongly believed I had to be against any kind of apple product. Despite my interest in gadgets I never took the time to see what iPod had to offer and what it brought to the music industry.

In early 2006 one of my close friends gave me a free ticket to Macworld 06 and I couldn’t pass this generous offer and when Steve Jobs pulled the iPhone out of his pocket I was stunned by all means. as a Gadget fan (specifically cell phones) I had never seen anything close to that after that day I told my friends that there wouldn’t be any thing to top this device in next two years. I was wrong it is three years now and still iPhone is way up  there and god knows how many times we’ve heard that a device was supposed to be «iPhone killer» but none of them ever succeeded in this task. when I got my first iPhone in my first review I said:»this is not the most complete cell phone in the market, it doesn’t do everything but whatever it does it does in the best possible way». Steve Jobs was right he reinvented the phone, the year after he changed all equations with the applications which is the biggest selling point of iPhone right now.

I remember reading an article about elimination of local memory on devices about three years ago and I though that’s impossible to happen and then a year later google started investing in this field and advertising it as a future of archiving and still I didn’t buy it. I used it but never thought it would be a replacement for our hard disks. but now I am one of the biggest users of cloud storage including Box.net and DropBox and it’s all because of my iPhone. iPhone doesn’t allow you to save files on the device but it works perfectly with these applications and I am loving it. what I am getting at is Apple instead of advertising a new way of doing things some how guides us throw that path. they changed the whole industry with iPhone and now they are doing the same thing with the iPad.

There has been so many negative and positive reviews about iPad which they are easy to find on the web and I am not going to repeat all those comments here. but what I want to mention is so many things that are considered negative for iPad will actually guide us to a better way computing in the future. some of the few :

  1. No flash: we’ve heard people nagging about lack of flash on the iPad web browser but is it really a bad thing? the short answer is yes but the fact is flash equals headache it causes a lot of crashes in different computers and drains the memory like no other application and now we see people started removing flash from their web sites which is good news for everybody but we all owe this to iPad whether we own one or not.
  2. No saving on the device: again why do we need to do that? when there is unlimited room in the clouds that we can use to keep and organize all our files and better yet this way we always have access to everything no matter where we are and whether or not we have our computer/cell phone/iPad with us. this is going to help with our processor and memory usage and eventually out battery life.
  3. No keyboard : Seriously?? is this a bad thing? come on people key board is over 140 years old do we really want to use this when can directly interact with whatever is on our screen. (same argument about the mouse)
  4. No replaceable battery: Who cares???? the battery lasts over 10 hours of video playback are you kidding me? do you really need more than that? it’s almost twice as other competitions this means if others give you free replaceable battery to carry around all the time you can get close to what you get from this one.

We can go on and on about all these feature that iPad has or could have and I agree it could be better with a camera or capability of multitasking (which will probably be available on iPhoen OS 4) and couple other features but the fact that matter is this is not just about iPad it is about new way of interacting with web, multimedia and… and new addition to our lives (tablets of any sort) that in my opinion will eventually be a replacement for laptops (not desktop computers) and other mobile web devices.

  1. hame nazarhatoon copy shode az fanboy haye apple bood.. motmaeni khodet neveshti?

    • Man motmaenam shoma ro nemidoonam. age vaghean copy hastesh linkesh ro baraye man befrestid chon in kar gheire ghanoonie!

      • I didn’t mean the exact copy / paste.. I meant it’s not sth new and you can see hundreds of these comments on iZombies forums. apparently the writer is another fanboy praising Apple for COOL products…

  2. it doesn’t do everything but whatever it does it does in the best possible way…. I bought a car that has a nice AC, nice stereo, etc. It doesn’t actually run, but what it does, it does very well. Now, what kind of crap is that

    • I don’t know if it is a rhetorical question or real one. but it means the first iPhone didn’t have MMS, Front face Camera, Saving on the Hardware but it did have a great web browsing which is still the best in market. didn’t have 3G but it had the best EDGE data transfer. had the best camera in it’s own class. had the best touch screen and over all UI in the market and…
      and as far as your car analogy goes that was not a good one but you can say I got a car that doesn’t have super charge engine or smart cruise control auto parking pilot but it has a very smooth ride, it’s got a great AC it is very low maintenance and….

  3. C’mon man get real. you can’t do the simplest things by your ipad or iwhatever, the blutooth on ipod touch is literally useless cuz it won’t recognize other devices,and there are no usb ports even my radio has usb port now.. you spend 800$ for a toy called ishit and after that you praise it cuz you they ripped you off and there’s no coming back. you are like, wait a min I cud hav bought a netbook way cheaper and get alot more out of it
