Et tu, Jobs?

Today I actually received the ipad I bought last week. I didn't mind the delay, or that they gave me the wrong model (I caught it before it become a big deal), or that no one in the store had any time to explain the features I had questions about, but I DO mind that it won't sync up with my computer. Apparently, my computer is so old (three years) that the OS can't even be upgraded. Really, Apple? Really?! No one thought to mention that when I was buying the ipad? So I'm suppose to get a new computer too?! Is there any end to your screwing over the people that support you?
