The iPad is a tremendous piece of iShit

Sucks to you Apple fanboys! When stuff like this happens, I grin from ear to ear. The only reason Apple is so successful with new products these days is because they hype them so much. They are running out of new ideas quickly and all they can do is improve upon what already exists. For about a month now, the internet has been plagued with “Apple Tablet” rumors. It actually started to sound cool. Then they announce the iPad (which is an awful name by the way). Numerous stupid people will confuse iPad and iPod, mark my words.

So I really didn’t know much about this iPad, since I was busy all day sleeping, looking for jobs, Watching Curb Your Enthusiasm, wasting time etc. I pretty much ignored all the hype. So after researching it and learning more, here comes the shitstorm:

iPads automatically suck. First off, it’s absolutely huge. An iPhone can do the same exact thing. Let’s go over some specs:

  • It cannot multitask. Seriously Apple? With Android 2.1 around the corner, haven’t you learned yet? Why don’t you spend your R&D making a 4th gen iPhone with a screen that doesn’t get shit on by the Droid/Nexus One and actually multitasks.
  • Screen resolution: 1024×768. That was decent in 2002. And it’s not widescreen, so movies will look awful on it.
  • No camera. How am I supposed to use Skype on this thing? And so much for the rumors of the front and back facing cameras.
  • iPad? What an awful name
  • No Flash support.
  • All the ports are nonstandard and you need to carry around various adapters. So much for portability. Guess what? My netbook is portable and I don’t need to carry around extra hunks of proprietary shit so I can plug in a flash drive.
  • Only runs app store apps. WHAT IS THE POINT?! A phone can do that. Why not put Snow Leopard on it?
  • Storage maxes out at 64GB. Netbooks can hold much more with real harddrives or SSDs.
  • Ranges from $499-$829. Way too expensive for so few features. As I said a few times, netbooks are cheaper.
  • There’s probably a lot more wrong with it, but I don’t give two hoots and have seen enough, and writing this is making me rage

In conclusion, a netbook can multitask, is smaller, has a better display/ resolution, has a camera, has a real keyboard, runs Adobe Flash and is much cheaper. Enough said. Only gullible, idiotic Apple Fanboys would buy this shitpile.

CRTs Suck

There needs to be a law where all CRTs are instantly banned. It’s 2010 and they have become completly useless. There’s absolutely no reason why any kind of display needs to have a huge ass bulky tube that shoots electrons onto a piece of phosphorous coating… It’s madness, and it’s been around since the 1940s.

I went to my living room to watch some TV, turn it on and hear the loudest, most annoying high frequency tone in my life. It drives me mad and it’s so loud I can’t even watch it. You don’t get that with LCD and OLED displays. It enraged me, because everyone else in this house is old and can’t hear it. Plus the pixels are huge. Awful.. Just awful.

No More Registrations

I just disallowed user registrations on this site. There is no point, since anyone can already comment on any post. It’s not like I have multiple people writing for me who need accounts. I keep getting email notices saying that some new person has registered. Well good for you for registering an account, but there is absolutely no point in having one, especially since less than 5 people read this blog. If you know me and need an account because you comment a lot and don’t want anyone else using your name, I’ll make you one. If you don’t know me, you’re SOL. Sorry.
