A typical Apple stance of "And with all these improvements, it's still the same price!"

Who wants 1 trillion operations a second? (a13 fusion/bionic?)

The best thing I heard all this time was that you get a year on the apple movie service if you buy a ipad/ or phone or iwatch. Not sure if it wl be a good service.

There was not much info on the ipad so I wil need to wait until they update the store.

Zero fucks given. The amount of money me and my company has spent on Apple is ridiculous. Just to watch perfectly adequate hardware become stupid expensive doorstops. Not any more. Apple tax can get stuffed.

And let's not speak about software no longer working. Trying to keep applications running on Apple is very expensive and time consuming. Xcode is a load of crap too.

At much as I hate Android at least I can still use tablets from years ago. As much as I hate Windows, my wife's old Acer laptop happily runs Windows 10 and all the things she needs.

Even customers are shyng away.

Nope, no fucks given. Fanboys have at it. I'll keep my pennies and go on holiday \0/

Someone asked me earlier today why I don't do "Apps" anymore..
It's because of shit like that.
I've now settled into a JavaScript groove, making games that can be played on most devices, without having to shell out a fuckton of money on various test devices.

Sure, it's not getting me anything in return, either, but ...
... to be honest, neither was making apps!!

your "budget" options for iPad are iPad Classic 10.2 screen, A10 chip, 32gb £349, 128gb £449. (This is the one announced today)
Or iPad Air 10.5 screen, A12 chip, 64gb £479, 256gb £629

FYI : My current iPad is a 5th gen, with an A9 processor, and it seems to handle KORG Gadget well, so that's just fine

I think I'm one of two people on the planet that doesn't own (or never owned) an iPad.

Although, I guess as someone who never gets to spend enough time with their gadgets, as it is, I don't think it's a good idea to spend so much on something that wouldn't get used.

True. Hopefully next year will be the less busy now that a lot of what needed doing (inside and outside of the home) has been done.

I've got a few WIP games to complete and a lot more to start!

I've also got shit loads of retail games to complete and even more to start!

Having moved house, I'm finding renewed joy playing through my once lost Games collection again. (It's keeping me sane)

Hoping it'll give me some inspiration to finish flap happy, etc, will post some pics of the new place once It's more homely if anyones interested.

Thanks, it was sadly my choice to move away but I'm trying to make the best of it, seen the kids a couple of times this week already, got them for most of the day on Saturday also. We're going to figure out what they want in their room then hopefully by next weekend it'll be ready for them to sleepover.

I'll be in a fair bit more debt on the credit card but at least then I can have them overnight again, can't help but miss them :| But keeping up to date with a bunch of podcasts during the evening and, well, keeping myself busy helps a lot.

Well, I think I am not getting the new budget ipad. It is not that much better than the ipad 2018. The same cpu is the breaker. Might just as well keep saving the moneyz for other things.
