The iPad Air is now on sale and making its way into the hands of the blogoratti and the Retina iPad mini will be arriving later this month. Unfortunately this fact heralds the oncoming blitz of self-indulgent tech bloggers smugly proclaiming either the iPad Air or the Retina mini to be the “real” iPad.
This is fucking stupid.
Entirely agreed. If you’re buying a new iPad — hell, if you’re buying a new anything — you should buy what’s best for your needs. There are no “real” products, there are simply different products for different needs.
