Yesterday I went to Best Buy to return my TP after a week. I was very reluctant, but was beginning to wonder about the updates and coming features that were promised and that I must have. Also figured, get refund now and just buy again later if they come. I have a Mac and Apple TV, so I figured I could just cave and get the iPad2.
So I go to the iPad display, and ask the guy to show me how to try to get the functionality I am used to. Multitasking is poo on iPad2. Emails are saved as drafts then have to re open.. No way to just continue back and forth. No way to attach multiple docs or files to email. No drop down device settings... And know what? In my hands, that thing is JUST TOO THIN!!! Maybe with iOS5 I could put up with that, but add current "notifications" that are so annoying... I put it down and walked away.
Back at the counter, the manager realized my dilemma, and told me to keep the TP for 30 days, not just the 14. Signed my receipt to that effect. Now I will be able to decide after the updates.
So I get home, and read this interview... WOW! I like this guy. About time someone responded to the Apple "measuring stick" without an apology. And I love how he disses Android as a "slap on" product, which it is. (I had the Nexus S for two weeks..
no thanks) and when I got to where he gives the specific timeline, I was so glad I still had my touchpad in my hands.
So I powered up Touchy, (that's his name) put back in my profile... And in about 15 minutes was back where I was, all apps etc., after having done a secure full erase. Know what? My patches from Preware were not erased by that...extra bonus :-)
Let's see it, HP. I'm still a believer. And I too carry a Veer ;-)
