The Apple iPad Air
Starting Price $499
Every year something cool comes out that has everyone hoping that the latest new product will answer all of the shortcomings of it's predecessor. I still remember all of the hype around Mac OS 8 being promised as a crash-proof operating system. I am still waiting for that promise to be kept.

I have not seen a computer on the market yet, that has lived up-to it's potential before system upgrades made it obsolete..

Case in point.. I am using a Mac Tower running OSX 10.4 to write the content of this article. Even though it has it's own text editor, I am a die-hard OS 9 SimpleText user for the simple reason that it doesn't try to outguess your intentions and auto correct your thoughts. You get exactly what you type. I even had to correct the text after using a word processor's spell-check, which uses an apostrophe[ ] that is not compatible with webpage text. I had to search for the bad symbols and replace them with web compatible ones.

As far as the tablet market has come, I feel it has a long way yet to go. A lot of the greatest/newest products to come along are missing the boat when they kill off apps like SimpleText, but don't give you anything able to do what you were using the old app to accomplish.

Can you actually copy and paste data from one app to another without losing your work, or having your tablet crash just as you type the last word of a 2-hour composition?

It comes down to the old saying... "If it isn't broke, don't fix it!"

I agree, the new iPad Air has a ton of cool bells and whistles. and you can't beat the size, weight, and battery life it offers, but with all that said... Is it still worth the price?
