He may be a jerk, but that would be a funny power.
His arch nemesis could own an Android tablet.
I don't know if iPad ownership turns people into assholes or if mostly assholes buy iPads, but there's definitely a connection.
Why is he a jerk? Aren't the real jerks the increasingly rude people with their face in their iPad/iPhone nearly 24/7? See- he's really the guy who was pushed too far by idiocy; like a lesser Michael Douglas in Falling Down... I wish he could make them drop and break 'em!!! D-Fens! D-Fens!! D-Fens!!!
I wish I had that power.
If I could choose between that superpower and a superpower that turned feces into money ... I would choose the latter, but after a long moment of indecision.
ANYBODY can have that power if they really want to use it. Just be prepared to deal with the consequences.
it seems like every jerk tag has a 'why is he a jerk?' I don't like technophiles much, but ipads don't cost a dollar.
Sure, you mock now, but when Dr.Killrage is activating his Megadoom Lazer(yes, with a z), and his finger is hovering over the fire button on his iPad, you'll be glad this guy is there to save the day.
Ipads dont cost a dollar? We must hve looked at very different ipads../ skytteflickan88.
And his super hero battle cry will be: Applesause!
I'd kind of like that power too.
I wish I had that power. But towards any Apple ordinance ever created. And I do mean ANYTHING.Fuckan "expensive products are your status" culture.
Why don't you badger Mommy to buy you one, then, jerk(s)? Then you'll feel all better about it.Seriously? Now people who mind their own business and do their own thing are "rude" because they aren't paying attention to You (sic)? Or have toys You (sic) can't afford and thus pretend You (sic) don't want, and have the utter audacity to play with them in front of You (sic)?Get a grip, whiny. Sure, I had my own stage where I wished for the mutant ability to shatter every cell phone within thirty yards, but now clowns who persist in bellowing into their cellies just amuse me (and every other grown-up within earshot who isn't trying to sleep or something). Now I wish I had the superpower to make jerks who sign their name to their own already-identified posts drop themselves down a flight of stairs and break everything.
WTF is a 'cellie'? Grow up and speak right, moron.
@Anonymous 10:25 PM- *yawn*
After this and yesterday, I'm starting to think that banning anonymous comments wouldn't be such a bad idea.
But being Anonymous is so much easier. >< I would would burn away the evils of the iPad with the enduring flame of the Kindle Fire! *strikes pose* There are some users I've met where I'd like to melt the iPad in their hands. Not all users are like this, but some are unbearable.
So... Some of you think I'm evil just because I do my computing on an iPad? Wow, that's kind of douchey. I like using a tablet, and with the exception of the Transformer Prime (which didn't exist when I bought my iPad), the iPad 2 is the only good tablet on the market. Anyone who says otherwise likely hasn't actually spent much time using a tablet. The Kindle Fire is great and all, but it's really more of an ereader and media device.This is just another great example of how the instant anyone mentions "Apple" or one of their products, a bunch of guys who have never even tried them have some weird need to impulsively post streams of hatred for no logical reason. The only thing worse than a fanboy is a reverse-fanboy, guys.
No, the fanboys are still worse.
You think someone who hates something for no good reason is better than someone who really likes something for no good reason? That just sounds kind of sad to me.
@Trae DornDefine "good". I think lots of people would say that as long as a product works, it's "good". Also, it depend on their preference. I can't say that I'm very experienced when it comes to tablets, but i seem to have developed a preference. I'm using a samsung galaxy tab 10,1(I like the size and that it allows flash) and prefer it to my mom's ipad, but that's because it fits my needs. So to me, it's a great device.If, after comparing all tablets that are sold today in depth (which I assume you have), you consider two of them good, you have a very specific taste./Skytteflickan88
The Samsung tablets aren't terrible, I just find that they don't provide quite the performance I get on an iPad 2 (which has the advantage of an OS much more optimized for it's hardware) or the Transformer Prime (which has a faster processor which makes up for it's generalized OS).Mostly, for me, there are two things I need in a tablet - battery life and cellular connectivity. The Prime is the only tablet I've seen which can touch the battery life of the iPad, but it's not available with a 3G variant.I classify electronics into three categories: Bad, Okay and Good, and from what I've seen of the Samsung tablets, they still sort of sit in that middle category. Nothing wrong with having them (just like there's nothing wrong with owning a 2002 Ford Escort), but I'd rather have something else - y'know?(Seriously, if you like Android tablets, you really need to check out the Prime - it's pretty sweet)
What in the holy hell has happened here? It's like watching a train wreck in slow motion.
Apple makes some great products. The problem is that the iPad is WAY overpriced for what you are getting. The specs are a bit trashy for that much money. Though let's be honest, most people don't do things that require power on a tablet. It's really more about the cool factor, which Apple is very good at.
This anger is genuine. I was given an iPad for my birthday last year. I still had it in the box as I walked through the airport in Seattle and I received looks that ranged from covetous to murderous. I really don't use it that much. Not sure if that makes me better or worse than "the increasingly rude people with their face in their iPad/iPhone nearly 24/7", but I'm sure a certain percentage of you want to kill me for it anyway.
@Anonymous 12/30/2011 1:31 PMActually, the iPad is pretty competatively priced when you compare it to other tablets. While the Apple tax argument can be made with Desktops and Laptops, it doesn't really apply to tablets. Equally spec'd tablets cost about the same, regardless of manufacturer these days.
@ Trae DornThe hate is just misdirected because there are a LOT of people out there who spend a lot of their time just flaunting their iPad when the majority of people don't care if some guy with a neck beard owns an iPad.I'm not a fan of tablets in general but I understand many people seem to like them, especially the iPad and I have no issue with this. I do find it very irritating when people act elitist about owning something. Not saying that's you as you seem pretty level-headed.
me and this guy could be friends. also. i want a ipad.
I wish I had the power to take away the happiness of anyone more fortunate than me.
I haven’t noticed an iPad/asshole correlation, but I have noticed a BMW/asshole correlation. The majority of the people who cut me off in traffic, go way over the speed limit, or move when they don’t have the right-of-way drive BMWs.
