Apple iPad 2: 10 Big Questions

Apple iPad 2: 10 Big Questions or 10 Big Jokes (to me)?
  1. Why No Memory Specs?
  2. Why No 4G?
  3. Why No Apple TV Gaming?
  4. Why No 7-Inch Tablet?
  5. Why No Flash Support?
  6. Why No Display-Resolution Boost?
  7. Why Can't the iPad 2 Be a Phone?
  8. Why Didn't We Get a 128GB Model?
  9. Why No SD Card Slot or USB Ports?
  10. Can the Smart Cover Really Clean the iPad 2's Screen?

I certainly do not see why the "new" iPad deserves a major release. It should have been a minor release from 1.0 to possibly 1.5, certainly not to 2.0.

Helluva joke and simply a business and marketing strategy to earn more money. If Apple can earn so much money, they should start sponsoring global projects like what Microsoft and Google have been doing. Apple CEO Steve Jobs, who has been working as long as Microsoft Bill Gates, should pass his executive baton to someone else, retire like Bill Gates and start giving back to the society doing philanthropic work.

ACJC Birthday Girl Tied Up and Tortured

The two videos mentioned are particularly shocking to me because of two factors. First of all, the perpetrators are practically all females, with a few boys in the background cheering. I never knew women are into such cruelty as well. Second, it occurred in bright daylight at a crowded school canteen - where everybody can see! The poor victim was tied to a chin-up bar and attacked mercilessly. All in the name of “celebrating” her birthday.

The school where all these took place is a well-reputed school - Anglo-Chinese Junior College (ACJC). (No point in concealing the school’s identity as the uniform of the students involved is obvious).

Video captured on the incident was uploaded onto YouTube but was taken down after this matter was blown up.
