My iPad is great. Although completely unjustifiable on any financial basis, I bought a “top of the range” first generation iPad soon after it came out and have never seriously regretted it.
The addition of apparent multi-tasking, in upgraded versions of the operating system, seemed to be a good idea at the time. But for me, with experience of using it on a daily basis, it really is not. This is a counter-counter-intuitive case where “less is more” does not apply. Good old intuition applies: less is less!
The lack of proper multi-tasking is not good; this is compounded by the pretence of some kind of multi-tasking; and I find it increasingly irritating.
Come on, Apple, you can do it!
