So I was hoping I'd have a chance to tell you how awesome the new 7.9 inch iPad was. Instead, I'm going to tell you to skip this one. People think of me as the big Android person, but I recommend iPads all the time. I think they do better for education and as family devices. But this model is just not doing it for me. It's a pity. If they'd decided to demolish all the Kindle Fires and Nexus 7s in a fell swoop, they could have done so. I think they decided to preserve their profit margins instead.
