What do you want the iPad 3 to have?

Hey! The iPad came out last Friday and I've already started to hear rumors about the iPad 3 coming out in later 2011. Now, this doesn't seem like Apple because they usually have a one year refresh of their products (as in the iPod touch and iPhone). What would you guys like to see on the iPad 3? Thanks!

SD card reader would be great. So would longer battery life.
Dr. Pepper (author)  ItsTheHobbs3 years ago
I agree with the SD card reader but the iPad has really good battery life. It's really thin (the iPad 2) with 10 hours of battery life. How much more do you need? Don't forget that you can get a battery extender.

Yeah I know, but it would be so much better with 15 hours of battery life. longer battery life is always better.
Dr. Pepper (author)  ItsTheHobbs3 years ago
I know but the iPad is already really thin, 15 hours is nice though.
they do make SD reders for ipad though... I couldn't find the DIRECT link but they have them on amazon: Click me...
Dr. Pepper (author)  Biggsy3 years ago
Yes. I understand that. That is the camera connection kit. I meant a built-in SD card reader for adding extra memory.
yeah, but i was just showing that they do offer it
Dr. Pepper (author)  Biggsy3 years ago
Thats ok. I didn't mean to hurt your feelings, Please excuse me.
it's alright... I know dude, don't worry :D
Dr. Pepper (author)  Biggsy3 years ago
Sure! Are we still friends?
Ooh... I don't know ;)

Dr. Pepper (author)  Biggsy3 years ago
Awww. Why don't you know? I really enjoy your happy spirit!
Seriously, is this the civilisation we live in now... where i have to #hashtag sarcasm? ;) :P
Dr. Pepper (author)  Biggsy3 years ago
What does #hashtag mean?
Oh.... sorry... it's a twitter thing, people #tag words to make the topic searchable.... It's a trending tool
Dr. Pepper (author)  Biggsy3 years ago
Ok cool! Thanks for teaching me that! ~:-D
hehehe no problem buddy
Dr. Pepper (author)  Biggsy3 years ago
cool!

Hmmm...
I haven't even seen an iPad in real life, but I agree with killerjackalope, it should be able to work as a tablet, for photoshop, virtual dj and that stuff, and it should have USB. Should also have a retina screen, which would give it a freakingly high resolution! Oh! And an induction type charging system! I think that's what they call it when you charge stuff by placing it on the surface of the charger! (and yes, I am a computer nerd)

Actually I think that an iPad built into a kitchen wall would be cool, to check recipes or play music and stuff. (I also cook)

But I'm happy with my 2G iPod touch 8GB jailbroken :P
Dr. Pepper (author)  colorex3 years ago
I agree!
Duh! I'm giving you a three paragraph comment an you answer me in two words? LOL
Dr. Pepper (author)  colorex3 years ago
I have a way with words.
Ok
Dr. Pepper (author)  colorex3 years ago
Ok? That's all you have to say after I say that "I have a way with words."
DUH!
Dr. Pepper (author)  colorex3 years ago
Wow, you don't have to be mean. You know what, I dislike people who say duh to me because it makes me feel sad and then that means I'm sad and then people who have subscribed to me are sad which means that they might make other people sad which might eventually make world leaders sad which means that the world might get sad which means that the other planets will get sad which means the galaxy will get sad which means that other galaxies will get sad which means the entire Universe might get sad which means... I don't know. LOL

Oops. They also remove double spaces.
Dr. Pepper (author)  colorex3 years ago
They did!
And thanks for the long reply!
Dr. Pepper (author)  colorex3 years ago
Sure.
Nope it didn't come out right, you see, they remove spaces at the beginning of a line. You can fix that by putting a dot on the beginning of each line, like this:
. /\
. / \
./ \
. II

BTW I didn't mean to be mean, it's just that DUH is stuck in my head. I just didn't realize I was being mean. I'm sorry! After all "we have a be nice policy" LOL (I'll use LOL instead of DUH)
Dr. Pepper (author)  colorex3 years ago
That's ok!
maybe an arduino and a machine gun servos waterproof and an invisibility cloak
Dr. Pepper (author)  hightekrednek23963 years ago
and a soda machine
all right that sounds awesome if it stays the same prices ill take ten


and it would be able to regenerate it own soda or beverage of your choice in the settinges menu
Dr. Pepper (author)  hightekrednek23963 years ago
Yeah.

No. It automatically does it.

A microwave so I could cook my hot pockets on the go
Dr. Pepper (author)  76543213 years ago
Wow! I've never thought of that!
I'm still pretty enamoured by the first one - if iGear was more openly compatible I'd love it for my work, recently I've stopped doing PR and my photography is getting somewhere, at the end of a shoot being able to have the client pick and choose photos they want to use for something/changed black and white/effects added would be awesome.

I second the standard inputs idea.

An increased functionality touchscreen, one that works as a serious graphic tablet as well as being able to be used as a simple computer input, something my phone already does when I'm feeling especially lazy...
Dr. Pepper (author)  killerjackalope3 years ago
Yes! Thanks for your feedback.
Kiteman3 years ago
Proper inputs and outputs - at the very least, an SD and a standard USB connection that will communicate with any computer, not just the one with your copy of iTunes installed.
Dr. Pepper (author)  Kiteman3 years ago
I definitely agree with you! A lot of people are also wanting the USB and SD ports.
Thanks for your feedback!
