Where the heck is 4.2 for iPad?

Okay, saw the apple website...a great thing was on the way...I was excited...I have an iPad and I hoped it would finally have 4.2. The only idevice to really need to upgrade has had to wait for months. So, I checked the site at 10am, and what to I see...The Beatles...I love the Beatles, but give me the god damn update!

Okay, now that I vented...anyone heard anything? A google search turned up the 24th...but I read a lot of conflicting reports...

I use mine for business (and some games...thats why I'm here)...and it kinda sucks to have a $800 device in which I have to email a document to my office computer just to print it.

Even the 24th is still JUST a rumor.

Apple said it would be out "in November." The month isn't over yet. Patience.

It's for the benefit of the end user.

Right... It'll still have bugs. IMO, every firmware "update" Apple released has been buggy. I'm an addict, so you might not have as much "experience" as I do. No offense.

You really thought something "you will never forget" would have been a simple iPad update? And as someone said above, they said November, so just have patience, your life isn't going to change with the release of 4.2.

iOS 4.2 for ipad is a big deal. Very big deal! I couldn't stand 3.2. It's about time Apple right their wrong. I paid $75 to try the iPad for two weeks. Now that 4.2 is almost here and it's most likely going to cause problems for many apps, I'm just gonna sit back and wait for iPad 2. By then there will be a good amount of apps available in working condition. I'm slowly learning from my mistakes. Yup.

Ohh, if anyone is wondering... Yes, you can throw your iPad across the room and it will not break. As long as it lands on a hard wood floor. Not even a scratch!

@fearless

None taken, but it's a pretty baseless assumption. I'm actually very familiar with iOS.

You'll find there are lots of "addicts" floating around, they just may not have a post count.

Thanks for the concern though.

If you really cba to wait, download the developers version now.
Remember to back up iPad first though, and copy that backup to a hard-drive! You don't wanna lose any game saves...
