    Retina iPad Mini to Launch This Year

    Totally can't justify the cost or true need. My iPad 3 goes to work and seminars with me, and I use it every night as well to check email and read news, weather, etc.Replying to email on a smaller screen size wouldn't suit me. The smaller size yeah, handy in a waiting room, or in a jacket pocket.

    Ipad3 being recalled or no longer made?

    I have the iPad 3 as we call it here. I did notice that on the Apple Store and in other stores, only the iPad 2 and the new Lightning connector, shall we say "iPad 4" has been listed. However, Microcenter is still selling the 3, referring to it as "3rd Generation" and in fact, sells all of them...

    Who Got An iPad for Christmas?

    I did. I got an iPad 3 from my spouse who got me my first one two years ago, and then the 2 earlier in 2012. I love all of them, but am enjoying the retina display so the 3 is now my favorite.

    Do you listen to music on your iPad?

    I said kinda as I do intermittently about the same amount as I do my iPhone. Most of my music time is in the car listening to Sirius or when I'm wrapping up at work and nobody is around, I have my laptop iTunes or some internet radio going. But at night I do sometimes use my iPad like an iPod.

    Yes, Google is my thought too. It has easy sharing abilities. I use it all the time for sharing and it does great. You can then also use one of the calendar apps that adds even more efficiency, but the stock calendar app does suffice.

    Official: Post where to get the best deals on new iPad (third gen)!

    Hmmm though. I did come up with this one at Walmart, where the better prices would be assumed. They want $399 for a refurb, (not new) white 16GB Wifi only which is actually $20 more than the Apple Store refurb. They also are out of stock as of this writing. And it seemed to be the best price I...

    How many GB is your iPad?

    LOL. I see too even more iPad freaks than me! I have remained with 16GB always since I don't store movies and whole musical libraries there. My iPhone has about 2.5 left which is the highest amount used for me. iPad 3 has a little over 8 left since my videos aren't on it and some more things as...

    Would you say the ipad 2 is considered old inferior technology now?

    I just got the 3 as an Xmas gift and I did notice the slight weight difference. I'm still using my 2 and just because I now have a 3 doesn't render the 2 suddenly junk to me being that it was and is performing exactly the same. I notice a little speed difference but not leaps and bounds in...

    I don't know if this is the same exact issue, but what has happened to me once or twice is that I will have a bunch of apps that are sitting there saying "Waiting" and seem to go nowhere. I can't use the app concurrently. I have not been able to determine if it was just a matter of letting all...

    Who's still sticking with the original iPad?

    LOL. Exactly. I don't see any bragging going on. Last time we checked, this is an iPad forum where we all have iPads that we enjoy talking about which would be the purpose of a forum! Bragging means a person is being haughty and vain. enjoying the use of one's existing device is not vain. This...

    Who's still sticking with the original iPad?

    Same here, with the exception that I still have my iPad 1 but haven't used it in a bit. I use my 2 on a daily basis. I take it to work meetings and handwrite notes using Paper Desk. I type notes in Docs to Go and a Dexim BT keyboard. My internet speed is fantastic. I am a techno junkie galore...

    Jury awards Apple more than $1B, finds Samsung infringed

    Both have billions upon billions in revenue. Samsung makes as we know, numerous electronic products, cameras, etc. Android phones/tablets ets are just one part. Apple we know makes billions. I read the article and in an of itself, copyright infringement is what it is, and any other product out...

    Do I need an iPad?

    I agree that it is not necessarily a "need" but more the "gotta have", LOL. Be that as it may, it is definitely a tool to me in the fact that it is portable. I have brought it to take notes in place of toting my Macbook. I have a BT keyboard that converts to a netbook like experience. I am just...

    Syncing Ipad on 2 different computers

    As I'm a good forum member who does a search as opposed to create a new thread, I am resurrecting this one. This is exactly what I plan to do, and yes, the now existent iCloud is how, as well as just one CD in my 2nd computer iTunes that I want to move over (although I can just burn the CD to my...

    Tried a screen protector but disgarded it.

    Have one on iPad 1 and iPhone, but decided not to on my iPad 2. I keep the smart cover on mine and tucked in a drawer safely when not in use. iPhone is a different story as its use is in different a scenario.

    Trouble connecting to iTunes?

    Mine is wishy washy. Has been from day one. my iPad is plugged in charging right now-iTunes opened before plug in and nope. iPad isn't showing up in iTunes. I sync to the cloud anyway, but all I want to do is app updates through iTunes. That's it. I have to jump start the ability to WiFi sync...

    Best Stylus for the New iPad

    While there have been several discussions on what stylus people like, some have been lengthy so it would be a long weeding through, and since I haven't had a look recently, for all we know, some of the ones mentioned on this thread haven't been discussed in previous threads. The basic Targus one...

    Playbook 2.0, my first impression...

    It does have a quality feel and I like the UI. (got the original one at the fire sale prices) and updated to 2.0. But since updating as well to an iPad 2 in the last 2 months, I admit, I haven't touched the Playbook. My iPad goes to work with me and just has the applications I use to make the...

    How Many Apple Products Do You Own?

    LOL, my 2nd Intel Mac Mini is not currently in use, but the older Power PC one still is an extra computer. The Intel one had USB ports that stopped working. My old iMac is now in storage-it's 8 years old and the monitor has lines on the display so will never be used again most likely. I ended...

    Ipad 2 vs Ipad 3

    if people have the money, they can just get the latest one or they'll likely keep questioning themselves. If you want to save the current US $100 for a brand new iPad 2 or even more on a refurb, it's not like the 2 is anything shabby. I may eventually get the 3 when the 4 is being released, but...

    iPad as laptop replacement?

    It really does depend on individual need. In my case, I just need to take notes when I go to seminars. I have a BT keyboard case that props up and it turns the iPad into a netbook type look, and nothing beats it for battery life. I have Docs to Go as my word processor. I like Docs to Go for some...

    Will the iPad 2 Section Die Once Everyone Gets Their Hands on "The New iPad"

    And I'm quite glad to be here! And a good point was raised that many 3 upgraders will likely sell their 2's leading to new 2 owners. But I do also speculate many will hold on their 2's. And I do like Sheerluck Holmers point that eventually it will be the iPad 1, 2,3, 4, 5, 6, forum. Eventually...

    Will the iPad 2 Section Die Once Everyone Gets Their Hands on "The New iPad"

    The iPad 1 section is still going even. Some slow down on this one, sure, maybe a little, but I am sure it will still be rolling, not to mention the general discussion that applies to all. I think a lot more 2 owners may hold out. Sure the retina display and faster processor, better camera are...

    I'm in the have a 1 and 2 category too. I use the 2 the most now, but still around the house if I want to look something up and walk downstairs to show someone something, I might do that with the 1, so it's not like the 1 is just sitting around. And I concur that I like the sturdy feel to the 1...

    Get an ipad 2 or ipad 3?

    A lot of people pondered the same when the 2 came out. Quite a lot of 1 owners upgraded immediately and sold their 1's, and plenty of people bought the used 1's. Quite a few people with the 1 never updgraded and perhaps might do so now. The left over brand new 1's were also sold at discounted...

    Ios 5.1

    Actually since the latest update, I am getting much better battery life on my iPad and iPhone. Usually I never see any difference, but this time I really did. I had my iPad at a seminar this past week, and it barely lost any charge and I was using a BT keyboard with it.

    iPad 2 old tech?

    LOL, but good reason! and as timtruro said above, waiting around for the next thing leaves one with sitting around forever and not getting anything, but it's people's choice to wait. The very nice 2's have dropped in price, brand spanking new, well equipped awesome devices. The latest price drop...

    iPad 2 old tech?

    I just weighed in on this on another thread. I have to laugh. I got my iPad 1 5 months before the 2 was released, and I was well aware the 2 was on its way. I just got the 2 literally 2 weeks ago as a present and I could have returned it to wait for the 3, as I knew the 3 would likely be out by...

    iPad 1/2 to iPad 3???

    I literally just got the iPad 2 a couple weeks ago. I got the iPad 1 about 5 months before the 2 launched. So no upgrade planned for me anytime soon! If I hadn't gotten the 2 as a present, I would probably be getting the 3 in a few months. I could have had the 2 returned as I knew the 3 was...

    Songs Keep Skipping and Ending Abruptly...Help!!

    Update on this thread. I've had no problem on my iPhones for almost 5 years, and never on my iPad 1. I just got an iPad 2 last week. I made a play list on it yesterday, and now all of a sudden, my songs are skipping and it has seeped into my iPhone as well. I uninstalled iTunes and reinstalled...

    R.I.P. Davy Jones

    Although I was literally just born when The Monkees came about, 10 years later as a kid, they were my obsession, and I saw them twice in the 90's for the reunion tours when I was already an adult. I'll always have a soft spot for them. I'm sorry to hear of this. I actually somewhere around my...

    I HATE screen protectors

    If I do get a screen protector, I can see myself having a time with it. The iPhone ones I've messed up I can usually fix. My iPhone 4 I had no issue,on it went on the first try. My 4s I had to fuss with, take off and put back on, but then it was fine. My three other iPhone, one of them, same...

    Best Buy offers iPad 2 for $449

    That's a good point about the 1, that it would still keep performing at whatever firmware works with it. I definitely see a few more years use out of it. That was my plan anyway, but like I said, I wasn't about to turn down having a 2. I've spent the last 10 months saying no, and he finally...

    Any Android Tablet Owners?

    Yeah-I see the intermittent rumors about the 3 being pricier. My guess it will be the same price. I do agree people will still buy it even if higher because iPad still is the tablet to beat, but a higher price though would probably help other people choose Android. An Android tablet does...

    How many do u charge ur ipad in a day?

    I am more obsessive about a daily charge of my iPhone, but even there I have changed my charging habits. I used to just leave it plugged into the computer all night, but now I just charge in the morning at work, and it's fine. On my iPad, I charge once it gets maybe to 20-25%. I've decided to...

    Any Android Tablet Owners?

    I do have a Honeycomb tablet, a 7" Galaxy Plus. The form factor is nice. I believe it's upgradable to Ice Cream Sandwich. I enjoy having it out of general interest in tech gear, and it is definitely worthwhile. At the end of the day, I do still prefer iPad. Android is great for customizing, but...

    Best Buy offers iPad 2 for $449

    Yeah, I noticed that BB just dropped the price. There's a computer store Microcenter (it's in several states spread out the US but only has like 20 something retail stores) and actually, they have already been offering it for $50 off since at least November 2011. I ended up just getting one...

    I HATE screen protectors

    I had BB install the Invisible Shield on my iPad 1. On all my iPhones, I've always used a regular static cling screen protector film. I have an iPad 2 now as well, and have decided to forego a screen protector for the first time ever with any of this. I keep one on my iPhone because that's in my...

    Which iPad do I have?

    Yeah-sure sounds that way, so time to get an e-mail out to get a shipping label to send it back to get the right one.

    Apple stores have become over crowded.

    At the Apple Store at a mall in my area, it's ALWAYS crowded with people looking.
