Apple So, yeah, uhm, I bought an iPad 2 today. I still don't think anyone really needs a tablet, but that doesn't mean I didn't want one. I wanted to wait until the HP TouchPad was announced, but now that it has, it seems it won't be coming to The Netherlands any time soon. As such, the iPad 2 it was. A few quick fist impressions.

Maybe OSNews should hold an iPad 2 giveaway...

...oh wait, better not, Apple has decided that they want iron-fisted control over that too:

- iPad, iPhone and the iPhone Gift Card may not be used in third-party promotions.
- iPod touch is only allowed to be used in special circumstances and requires a minimum purchase of 250 units.
- You may NOT use the Myriad Set font on or in connection with web sites, products, packaging, manuals, or promotional/advertising materials.
- The use of "free" as a modifier in any Apple product reference in a prominent manner (headlines, call- outs, etc.) is prohibited.
- You must submit all marketing materials related to the promotion of Apple products to Apple for review.


But don't worry, I'm sure the Apple Apologist Army will be along to eagerly explain things & call us idiots/haters/poopie-heads for daring to apply critical thought to Apple... no doubt this is for our own good, it just coincidentally happens to be exactly the sort of thing that arrogant control freaks would do.
