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

John Moe Mar 15, 2012


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.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
