I refuse to call the $800 superfluous iPad thing that Dr Desert Flower bought for "Christmas" an "ipad". It's a "Job's Device". It's not MY Christmas present, as I hate the damn thing. It won't let me log into my Gmail without wanting to LEAVE ME LOGGED IN on the "cloud" eternally, which confuses Gmail when I try to log in on the desktop. It wont let me type, since I do not have the pre-requisite feminine touch required to type on a touch touch screen. It will not let me search without auto-completing my entries, leading to wrong, sometimes hilarious, usually annoying mis-directions.
OK, the "voice recognition" works adequately for SIMPLE searches, that do not involve polysyllabic words. But anything colloquial, or polysyllabic or technical and it freaks out. I THOUGHT Steve Jobs (peace be upon him, ie Allah) was supposed to create "experiences" that "enhanced" the user's interface, and "differentiated" his products from the rest of the pack. The 64gig Job's Device needs to ADAPT to my masculine heavy handed touch, my voice patterns, and my vocabulary. Otherwise, it was a colossal waste of $800 at the "I store".
