Why I won’t buy an Ipad: ten years later by Aaron Davis

Reflecting on ten years since the release of the iPad, Cory Doctorow reflects upon the limitations of the device. From the restrictions placed on content to the inability to fix the hardware, iPads are designed to create consumers out of their users.

I think Cory is a bit harsh. I’ve had every version of the iPad since my first iPad (3G) in April 2010, and it continues to be useful as a mid-way point (car) between my iMac (truck) and iPhone (bicycle). In fact, I had an iPad four years before I bought my first iPhone. While there are certain things that frustrate me about the iPadOS, most recently the insanity of gestures and multitasking, I love my iPad Pro and I expect I may always own one.
