Consumers succumb to Apple addiction

Jack Beetham, Staff Writer

The revolutionary iPad released March 16 aims to be the perfect handheld tablet device. Fixing various problems and including additional features, the iPad 3 has proven to be everything an Apple fanatic could ever hope for.

The all new Retina display on the third generation iPad makes the experience more immersive and lifelike. This revolutionary design first implemented on the iPhone 4 can now be seen on the 1080p HD tablet display. The screens size tops out at 2048 X 1536, a resolution higher than most HD TVs. Mesmerizing the mind controlled “Line-waiters” as they stand tired and cold at 5 am, in hopes to be the first to get their hands on an iPad 3.

The iPad 3 also comes complete with a 5-megapixel iSight camera with Advanced Optics, a backside illumination sensor, and corrected face detection from previous models. These new features together give the buyer the best camera on any handheld tablet device. With features like these an Apple enthusiast cannot resist.

Many workers and business employees will be interested in the new programs included on the new iPad. iLife and iWork have been added to list of programs included on the iPad, both contributing to an audience who uses the tablet for their daily lives. In addition to these Apple staples, they have also added more than two-hundred thousand apps to the app store catalog for all those seeking a game fix.

The iPad also runs on a new Ultra-fast 4g LTE data network. The network proves to be almost as fast as many wifi hotspots and will download and receive data at amazing speeds. This is important for the progress of Apple’s design, as the competition such as LG and HTC already have devices running at these speeds. The iPad may be late to the party, but does not show up empty-handed.

The iPad, with its annual upgrade, proves to be better than those before it and continually influences the way we live our lives. As technology becomes more of a necessity in the modern world, Apple never fails to provide the merchandise to fulfill the technology “needs” of its consumers. With the release of the new iPad, an unstoppable Apple addiction lives on.
