    APPLE why do you keep editing/deleting my posts!! Becuase I am right??




    Planned Obsolescence:

    For an industry, planned obsolescence stimulates demand by encouraging purchasers to buy sooner if they still want a functioning product. Built-in obsolescence is used in many different products. There is, however, the potential backlash of consumers who learn that the manufacturer invested money to make the product obsolete faster; such consumers might turn to a producer (if any exists) that offers a more durable alternative.


    Sounds really familiar!

    Your posts are being deleted because you agreed that you would use this forum for Technical Support, and that it is not a forum for the discussion of business or strategic concerns. There are plenty of appropriate forums to use for that. Since you are in violation of the terms of use you agreed to in order to post here, you should consider yourself lucky you're still being allowed to post at all.

    Ahhh an Apple sheeple!!! This forum is about ios 6 not being compatible for ipad one which it is called Planned Obsolescence, it’s called a discussion and since Apple has a lot to hide they do not want anyone else jumping on the same ship!


    Believe me I am not lucky that I am still being allowed to post, Apple is not my world!

    I do not praise apple, I do not thank god I am still allowed to post on Apples website. I actually have a life and I do not worship Apple like it is my lord and savior.


    With that being said, I purchased my ipad brand new and I will express my opinion anytime I please and do not need your Apple Worshipper support to do it!

  • faith423 Level 1 (10 points)

    You really seem to be proving that Apple IS your world right now.

  • suburban_pop Level 1 (10 points)

    I can have this conversation with you elsewhere, and haven't even disagreed with you. I just suggested that this is not the forum for it. Your response is to call me sheeple when I haven't even stated a position. You prove that you're only literate enough to know that you didn't like what you read so you should call people names. I don't go to your marketing forums for tech support, but you come to a tech support forum to whine about business decisions. If you have the energy and intelligence to engage in the discussion, go have it where it might make a difference.

    I apologize, the anger is more directed to Apple. I did a search and found this thread relating to what I wanted to discuss.

  • Djayed Level 1 (0 points)

    With the tone in prior posts here it seems like it was not just limited to just technical aspects. My main issue is that I have had my XBOX for 6 years and Micrtosoft has updated the software about once a year. Now my Xbox has never had any type of hardware changes, except now it looks like WIndows 8 and I can surf the internet watch netflix, hulu, etc.

    Apple is sliding like it did in the 1980's when they also forgot to keep the customer's perspective. In times of crisis, they render barely 2 year old devices obsolete whilst not thinking that customers may not be able to afford a new iPad. There is a whole lot of nasty words popping up in my mind now, but alas it is not my style two convene them.


    Just do not buy Apple anymore, any device you buy now, will be terminated by Apple within the next 2 years. So much for sustainability...

    I want to join you when you move forward. Let's see if they delete my post again.

    I agree with ABC CEO and Djayed.  Apple is sliding and it is starting to show in the market.  Other more caring companies are creating similar product with the consumer in mind.  We all hail innovation and moving forward, but at what expence.  We ipad1 owner are not looking for Apple to give us a camera or retina display, we simply want them to support a product they created not long ago and to live up to product support.  We are not looking for them to support the product indeffinatly but at least 5 years would be a good start.  I am sorry but as you plan to make things obsolute I hope that you have also planned for customers to be dissapionted and drop off.  All we want is for Apple to do the right thing by the consumer and to not assume we can all afford to upgrade our units.  You have no idea what it took for us to get them in the first place.  They are not a disposable piece of electronics.  JUst do the right thing Apple!!

    So what you saying is that apple should listen to you. And keep things from going obsolete. Because not everyone wants a camera or retina display on their iPad.  Ok then what will keep ppl coming back for better products if the product is built the same. That's the problem with people and the iOS with apple. People leaving for android cuz apple keeping it simple.  But soon as apple come Witt the 4.7 inch screen everyone is jumping back on ship.  Now for your complaint. All products get out dated. Cars, Tvs, microwaves. Everything changes, hardware and software, hopefully for the better. And I have an iPad 2 cuz I didn't want the iPad, simple because it didn't come with a camera.  So I waited, you had that choice to. You really don't have to be the first person with the product to get notice.

    Typical Apple Fanboy response.


    Bottom line:  A device (computer like) selling in excess of $500 should be fully supported for MORE THAN TWO YEARS.


    o Apple is not affording us bug and security fixes to the OS and Safari.


    o Many bug fixes to Apps that we have already paid for will not install without IOS6.

  • arcadelt Level 1 (0 points)

    Well knighthere, lucky that you bought an iPad 2 that remains supported for now; but how will you feel when Apple stop supporting IOS upgrades for that device after June this year, and then all the apps that you also bought slowly stop working as they update those to meet the needs of the new OS. Perhaps at that time you will be unhappy too and start to consider whether you will buy the iPad 5, iPad Mini 2 or any number of Android based tablets. That is all that people are doing here...
