I just wanted to say thank you to everyone here for being polite and helpful and not making me feel small and stupid. Where is this coming from? Well, a few weeks ago I decided that I wanted a smaller tablet for travel. An iPad Mini felt redundant on top of my iPhone5 and iPad3 so I got a Nexus 7. After all, I've heard great things about them. I joined a N7 forum, and posted questions, seeking help and advice. Android is completely foreign to me (the only smart phone I've ever had has been an iPhone) and I was struggling. I got a lot of responses about hardware, and what makes Android better than iOS, but no real usable advice. Yesterday I gave up, reset the N7 to factory defaults, and put it in its box. Its currently listed on Craigslist, and I'm sure I'll take a hit on it when I sell it. I posted one final time on the N7 board, to say thanks for the help but I was moving back to Apple. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but a couple of them managed to get one last dig in. "Those who can, buy Android. Those who can't, buy Apple."
I don't understand the whole, "I like this device so I'm better than you" mentality. Its really bad in the Kindle forum that I read (I have a Fire HD and and ereader). Of the three tablet forums I read, the people here are much more polite, civil, and kind than the other two. So, thank you to everyone here for not making me feel like I'm an idiot or something. I tell my Android friends that one of the HUGE reasons I stay with Apple is the customer support I get with my iDevices. It would appear that that same level of helpfulness carries over into the Apple communities, as well.
