    Default We Gave People an iPad 2, Told Them It Was the New iPad, and They Loved It

    Apple's advertising onslaught is already battering down doors and TVs around the nation—you're gonna upgrade to a new iPad whether you like it or not. But based on our little test, most people can't tell the difference anyway.

    We figured that if we—enormous nerds who fixate on pixel density—were underwhelmed by the screen, then what about non-gadget geeks? We rounded some coworkers and handed them a "new iPad." The "new iPad" was an iPad 2. They loved the new iPad.

    Apple doesn't even need to try anymore.

    at least they liked it ? , and only one of them noticed the quality of the screen wasn't sharp as her phone .. which was an iphone 4/4s .
    apparently that entire office everyone was using an apple devices and only one mention of a kindle ..
    maybe they don't use tablets at all in their lives ?.

    Not a fair comment. Maybe the last two generations. Remember the 1st one had no camera.
    Previous Devices -> SE P1i , Nokia E75, Blackberry 9900 OS 7.1, HTC One

    Current Device -> LG G6

    Thank you sir.

    Only technical peeps will know the difference. Apple community doesnt have many technical peeps.
