    VLC for iPad Approved by Apple - In Store Now

    Hardware acceleration has nothing to do with some the 8 out of 10 avi files I tried not playing even though they play fine on my Mac with VLC. Look in the app comments, many people are having the same problem. I love VLC, I've even made a donation and have been using it on my Macs since the...

    VLC for iPad Approved by Apple - In Store Now

    I would be impressed if the VLC app would play my avi files. Out of the 10 I tried it played only two correctly. Yes, they all play in VLC on my Mac. Just read the app store reviews, there are many others having the same problem. I love VLC and have been a huge fan for years, but it looks like...

    Amazon Takes a Shot at the iPad's Screen Visibility in New TV Ad

    I love my iPad, but for reading and storing hundreds of books for reading anytime anywhere, my Kindle blows away the iPad not only in book selection and price for the device (and the books), but in readability. The point I think Amazon is trying to make is if you are buying a device to read...

    Samsung’s Galaxy Tab To Cost Nearly $1000!!

    I love my iPad, but I'm interested in the Tab because of the tight integration with Google services, front and rear cameras and it is unlocked. Problems with Android? Spoken like a true Apple fanboy. I love my Droid Incredible phone and have ZERO problems with Android. I bet if Apple offered...

    Rupert Murdoch says the iPad is a "Game Changer"

    "You don't get to run companies such as the Times, the Sun, the Wall Street Journal and Fox Television without knowing what you're talking about!" Hahahahaha, thanks for the laugh! You obviously have no clue the total crap that has been spewing out of Rupert's mouth the last 5 years. :p

    Ron, The sound quality is pretty good. It's not quite CD quality but damn close. I rip all of my CD's with 192kbps.

    It's a hard plastic composite. I've used RAM mounts in the past and had vibration issues. No vibration issues with this mount at all. It's rock solid. I did a custom mount and drilled mine into the lower part of my dash, but they come with a "Pro Clip" style mount if you need one.

    Bognman420, I don't even know where to start with your last post. So I'll just say maybe you shouldn't "smoke up" before you get on the Internet. I love the mount and am very happy with it. Enough said. :)

    Bognman, It rotates on a 3 axis pivot so you can have is close or as far away from your dash as you want. You think this mount is only $5 worth of parts? Just by that statement alone it is painfully obvious that you have never seen this mount in person and have no clue what you are talking...

    Speaker Solution for Headrest Mounted iPad?

    Why not just get a long cord and plug it into your stereo's aux port (if it has one).

    RHurst, I've been a member of MP3Car for almost almost 5 years, I agree.... great resource. I'm RBasil over there. :) I've played with a bunch of different windows based front ends over the years for some of my other Carputer installs, would love to see one made available for a jailbroken iPad.

    Does anyone know if iPad apps support web services?

    It will run on an iPad if: It does not require any type of "plugin" ie: flash, silverlight, etc... It will run in Safari The easiest way to test is to install Safari with no extra plug-ins on your computer and access it from there. If so, it will work on the iPad.

    2 kids+ hardwood floors causes me to cringe. Which case do I need?

    Get it right, it's "neener.. neener" I don't have any kids, my sister and her kids (12 and 5) live with my wife and I. As far as allowing them on the forum, they are not allowed on the Internet without adult supervision. They are not the adults in my house and are required to follow the...

    2 kids+ hardwood floors causes me to cringe. Which case do I need?

    I am not the only one in this thread with my opinion and have posted as such. But I guess it's easier to direct your anger at one person (me) instead of the entire group. That's ok, I understand...

    2 kids+ hardwood floors causes me to cringe. Which case do I need?

    Sounds like WE hit a nerve, and the truth hurts. You don't like my (and others) response? Then don't tell us that you need a case because you don't trust your kids with your iPad. You are on a public forum and from time to time you are going to get responses that you don't like. Deal with it or...

    2 kids+ hardwood floors causes me to cringe. Which case do I need?

    If your kids are not old enough for you to trust them alone with a $500-$900 electronic device then why are you letting them touch it? If you say "easier said than done" then my question to you is.... Who is the parent in your house? Yes, I have a 5 year old and a 12 year old in my house, but...

    P.S. No, Elemental Designs does not make the best Stereo Equipment on earth. There you go trying to put words in my mouth again. (shame on you). But they DO make high quality equipment. And 1,800 Watts RMS would be loud in ANY car, it just so happens that I have them in a Smart car. :p

    Where did I say that all Corvette owners are douchebags? I've never said that, in fact I stated that I am a former owner myself. What I said was that I got tired of the Corvette scene because the majority of the owners were not Corvette owners because of the car itself, but because of how they...

    I guess you missed the part where I said I was asked about it and that I am building the car for shows. Here is my current car The Fallen Heroes Car My wife and I are building the Smart as a tribute to (and to raise money for) the troops as well. So far we have raised over $300,000 for different...

    Sorry for the dark photos. I drove the truck today and my wife took these photos of it with her iPad at home. I'll try and get some photos with a flash soon.

    Not sure about shipping to the UK. You would have to ask them. I don't make the holder, I'm just a happy customer. :)

    Granted, the car mount is not for everyone. But for those people like me who use the iPad in their car every day, the $150 is worth it to get the iPad off of my passenger seat. :D

    It always amazes me that people are willing to spend $500-$900 on an iPad and then want "cheap" accessories. You need to remember, this will be holding your iPad in your car. Do you really want something cheap that might drop and break it?
