Last Wednesday we began a new weekly column here on MakeUseOf. We ask you, the MUO readership, a direct question and invite you to
do our work for us let us know what you think about the subject at hand. After a healthy debate we then compile the answers into an easily-digestible summary for your pleasure on the following Tuesday.
Last week the question concerned the upcoming iPad 3. Apple is all set to announce the iPad 3 tomorrow morning (March 7th), and we’ll all no doubt be glued to the edge of our seats eager to see what slight changes Apple has made for the latest iteration of its market-leading tablet. But what did you say would ultimately make you buy an iPad 3?
What Would Make You Buy An Apple iPad 3?
We asked you, What Would Make You Buy An Apple iPad 3? You told us…
Suggestions for upgrades or new features included stylus support, Siri built in, USB and SD Card slots, the standard more power/more memory, a removable battery, Microsoft Office, a screen with a better resolution (Retina Display, perhaps?!), faster touch-typing response. And the obvious (and seemingly never-ending) support for Adobe Flash.
More general suggestions included a cheaper price tag and a smaller-size option of 7-inches or 8-inches. Many people also used the opportunity to rally against the iOS ecosystem, arguing that they don’t want to buy an iPad because doing so would mean playing by Apple’s rules.
Less-serious suggestions included support for Windows, a holographic keyboard, and “a lobotomy.” And, controversially, Apple to bring production back to the U.S.
Comment Of The Week
Comment of the week goes to Daniel J, who gets nothing but my admiration and respect (which is surely more than anyone needs) for, “nothing really, unless myself or someone I loved was in grave danger… So, it’s a long shot…”
We’ll be asking a new question tomorrow, so please join us.
