iPad 2 Is Revealed; My Techdong Throbs.

Apple dropped the bombshell that ignited the dirtying of millions of acolytes’ panties today. Boom!, the Apple iPad 2. Sometimes there’s an advantage to be a bumbling asshole graduate student. It prevents me from splurging on things I don’t need. Despite working thirty hours a week, I’m paid shit for working “eight”, and the poverty assures that this thing will remain out of my hands. I don’t need this shit, but it ignites such a techdork part of me into a  frenzy  that is  incalculable  by modern mathematical rubrics.

Fuck, is it hot.

Specs Via Gizmodo:

Dual-core 1GHz A5 processor, which is “up to two times faster” than the previous version, Steve says.
The graphics have been improved too. The GPU goes at  nine times the speed as before.
Same low power consumption as the A4.
Built-in cameras for photos and video: One for frontal FaceTime videoconferencing and Photobooth (VGA resolution) and one on the back with 720p HD video capability.
The cameras support the same exposure and focus control as the iPhones: Just tap where you want to focus for video and stills photography.
It also has a built-in gyroscope, like the iPhone 4.
They claim that the 25-watt battery’s life is 10 hours “on Wi-Fi, watching video, or listening to music”. Just like before, but in a much thinner package. They also claim one month stand-by time.
HDMI mirrored video output at 1080p Full HD (the Apple Digital AV Adapter cable costs $39).

It’s also 33% thinner and swank as fuck. If you can’t tell, there’s multiple orifices of mine drooling at this piece of excessive existence. Stay strong. Stay poor.
