    Who Here That Owns An iPad Will Buy The iPad Mini?

    I have had a lot of luck taking pictures with my iPad 3rd gen. I recently got back from a conference where I take a lot of pictures. I left without my 10 mp camera that i normally get good shots with. I had my wife's 12 mp camera, but after the first day, found that most of the shots were...

    iPad Mini obsolete already?

    I am very interested in the iPad mini. It is almost the exact size of a 2 DIN radio and I can see kits that would allow it to be used instead of $2000 navigation systems. I don't have a problem with the A5 being used, other than that will mean it will not support Siri. However, I would imagine...

    Did the iPad 4 announcement surprise you?

    I was surprised by the amount of changes, but the fact that the larger iPad was only thing still with the 30 pin connnector, made me wonder if Apple was going to wait until spring to release an update.

    A very very very. . . bad move by apple!!

    I doubt that this will have an adverse effect on people. Those who have a heavy investment in the 30 pin cable system, can still get the 3rd generation iPad at a much reduced price. It was a bit of a shock, being out of normal schedule, but Apple apparently felt that abandoning the 30 pin...

    Ios 6 app store

    They make it hard to delete the apps because people frequently get upset, and delete an app. Then they find out that the app has been updated into something better, and they do not have it available. If they make it hard to delete, then no one can claim they did not know what they were doing by...

    Getting the most out of iOS 6

    Positive news about iOS Maps Evetually maps will get much better. One bright note was found in a comparison of the Apple Maps vs Google's app. In most situations, there were little difference between the two, but by using a better downloading technique, Apple uses less than a third of the...

    Complaints on ios6

    No update is flawless. Most issues are minor and individual experiences. The Youtube and Maps issues are not Apple's fault when you look at it. Google knew that the native apps were going to be dropped. They chose to not release them and it was highly possible that they did so to upset Apple...

    IOS 6 Update Question About GPS & Maps?

    There are many good reasons to update to iOS 6. Maps is in its infancy, and will get better as they find the problems. This can only be done by individuals who know the areas reporting bad information. Apple has been hiring many of the top people away from Google to help with this. Whether or...

    What's the 16:9 iPad? Perhaps the next generation will be able to see

    This has been discussed ad infinum. I would suggest you do some research for past threads. There are very good reasons for the layout of the iPad. The only reason for letterbox layout is to watch videos in 16:9. Not all video is in that format. The iPad is a multi function tool, and as such, has...

    Complaints on ios6

    Interestingly enough, one of the big advantages that Google maps was the high number of iPhone users who contributed to updates for them. So without the iPhones, they may not get the full benefits of updating. Google maps had to go, whether people liked it or not. To promote migration to...
