Apple Scamming Customers with iPad Micro SIM?

Posted in Conspiracy, iPad, Subversion by ipadnerd on February 6, 2010

All evidence points to Apple’s micro-SIM decision trying to prevent customers from using their iPhone SIM’s in their iPad’s; effectively forcing loyal customers to buy a second 3G product from AT&T. So much for putting customers first! It will be technically possible to ‘cut’ your iPhone SIM to make it work in both products. A hackers dream come true.

    I’ve loved Apple products for some time, they produce gadgets that is aesthetically gorgeous while working like a each and every time. I can’t say that about alot of companies, it’s typically one or the other. Businesses don’t usually take aesthetics seriously like Apple. With me stating that I’ve got to say that I’m very excited about the upcoming iSlate. One thing I question though, is it too soon? I think that this product may be ahead of its time. What do you think?

    Steve Jobs has a strong belief in the importance of aesthetics in good design. Check out his commencement address at Stanford on our home page where he talks about aesthetics and design. I think the first generation iPad will be successful even without some of the features that it will surely eventually have (e.g. camera). Apple has the unique ability to create markets and I think it will create the tablet market with the iPad.
