No apologies for the unhygienic pun, hot on the heels of the media trumpeting the huge profit (70%??!!) by Apple in the last quarter, insults of any kind would be shrugged like mosquitoes sniffing around a pachyderm's rear.
Although the Singapore market is small, nonetheless it would be a bump for the next quarter's profit pronouncement. Add on the grey market of early adopters (you know who you are!), it would mean a neat little profit.
As my fellow blogger noted, a queue of devotees are expected at all iTemples. As much as I am under the iPad spell, I shall try to sit back and wait. News of "Pay to upgrade" means having second thoughts, although I am doubtful it is true, you just never know now that their egos are truly inflated. I am still hurting from the expensive iOS3 upgrade, one of those spellbound moments.
