* Better customer service at Amazon than Apple.
4. And a suggestion.
The Amazon guy and I fell to chatting and he warned me that eventually Amazon would stop supporting my iPad One. And I guess that in 10-15 years, sure, maybe. I demurred.
My iPad One is still a fine little tool (as are the early KIndles.) So maybe rather than just making orphans, Amazon (and Apple and I guess Android-based builders too) should keep supporting the older models to give to poorer communities and regions.
Why not establish a trade-in program? I want to buy an iPad Mini with Retina (sorry Jeff, you get plenty of my money anyway!) and Apple should take my old iPad, give me a credit on a new model and then give the old iPad to some poor school district, third world etc etc
