But you can’t look at your mom in real time from the bus on the new iPad

Apple’s getting knocked around a bit this morning for the fact that the new iPad doesn’t support FaceTime video calls over a 4G network. You still need to be on wi-fi if you want to do that. That raises eyebrows because 4G is supposed to be all fired faster than the old system. Of course: listen to us. We can call people and see their faces over a beautiful portable screen but we’re mad because we can’t do it everywhere.
