    Log off

    Don't let them fool you. Once you login there is no escape. I tried sending morse code messages to my friends and family through eye blinking but after several months I have given up hope.

    What is the least sophisticated thing you use your iPad for?

    The point of the thread was to be funny and laugh at ourselves but I never dreamt it would have been this funny.

    Netflix quality

    The OP didn't mention using a VPN and doing so will definititely make things worse not better. The only reason a person would use a VPN is to get content that is unavailable to their area.

    Netflix quality

    I am not trying to be contrary but I have seen at least a couple of hundred people try to suggest that a specific player was malfuntioning because the quality was great on another platform told that is meaningless.

    Netflix quality

    What is the least sophisticated thing you use your iPad for?

    New ipad battery depletion while plugged in

    Netflix quality

    It is a fallousy to compare Netflix quality from different devices because they may not be both pulling from the same netflix server. I am not sure about the iPad nf app but most now use adaptive streaming. Unfortunately in their infinite wisdom they start at the poorest quality and can take...

    Is this bad for the battery?

    Right, because everything always acts in the manner it was designed. There are no absolutes when it comes to manmade devices.

    Is this bad for the battery?

    It may be out of date but I replaced a swollen LI battery this year and Apple can release software with bugs. I prefer to not use it on the cord fully charged and we can leave it at that.
