iPad Owners Will Only Get The Next Major Firmware Update Free

Apple has revealed in its iPad documentation that 3.2 iPad owners will get the next (4.x) major firmware release for free; however, they will have to pay for the following (5.x) one.

Apple will provide you any iPad OS software updates that it may release from time to time, up to and including the next major iPad OS software release following the version of iPad OS software that originally shipped from Apple on your iPad, for free. For example, if your iPad originally shipped with iPad 3.x software, Apple would provide you with any iPad OS software updates it might release up to and including the iPad 4.x software release. Such updates and releases may not necessarily include all of the new software features that Apple releases for newer iPad models.

There is not end to US corpoate greed... next thing you know Apple will charge you for each picture you take with the iPad. Are they going nuts? I guess making gazillions of dollars on iTunes software and the hardware they sell isn't enough. I don't even feel sorry for Apple when people find ways to jailbreak their devices now.
