    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. On wired connections the answer is almost always DNS optimization. On wireless...

    Netflix quality

    What you read is incorrect. I participate on a number of streaming devices message boards and the first thing the engineers tell someone that is getting mixed results on quality is that different devices can pull from different streams. Optimizing the DNS usullay fixes it. I also have...

    Netflix quality

    There are many devices that stream NF content. Using one to diagnose another is not diagnostically sound because they may not be streaming from the same CDN. I have helped many people overcome streaming problems and optimizing the DNS covers most of them if they have sufficient bandwidth.

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

    This is just a dumb Friday thread. We all know how powerful these devices are so what dumb little app do you use that flies in the face of this powerful tablet? I regularly use mine as a kitchen timer.

    New ipad battery depletion while plugged in

    That does not have to be the case. Turn on airplay and set brightness to 100 percent and the battery does deplete faster than it charges even if plugged into the wall.

    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.

    Wi fi printing

    It just keeps telling me it is not a netgear router. That is a dumb design if it can't see the router because the router is not serving as a WAP.

    Is this bad for the battery?

    You say that but my Harmony One has a LI battery and it is always on when charging and it swelled up. From what I read it happens routinely.

    Do you find yourself throwing iPad parties?

    That is just so crazy. Between family, friends, and work colleagues I easily know 40 people with iPads. Not that I would ever invite him to my house socially (he'd show up 3 days later than he says he would anyway) but even my contractor has one.

    Is this bad for the battery?

    You missed my OCD battery charge thread... There has been a lot of information posted here about the best way to protect your battery and extend its life... some of it was in that OCD thread. From what I gather the most ideal charging is for the unit to be powered down. However an iPad is...

    Do you find yourself throwing iPad parties?

    I have always found that if I buy enough wine getting guests for a party takes care of itself. I guess my situation is a little more unique than I thought. Hopefully in the next year or so more of you will be having impromptu table parties and we can share experiences.

    Best Stylus for the New iPad

    I find drawing with my finger to be too imprecise and I am constantly being forced to undo or erase something. A complicated physics game like Arriving is very frustrating with my finger because just fingering out a solution doesn't help if you don't execute it in time.

    iPad 3 screen warm-up time?

    I don't know if there is a way to view the exact percentage but I always just use an approximation of the percentage. There are times I turn mine up a little but I'd say it is normally right around 50 percent. Whether that is actually 48 or 52 percent I couldn't tell you. I have also never...

    Do you find yourself throwing iPad parties?

    It might even be more fun if it were planned. I didn't even realize it was happening until this last time. I mean I knew it was happening but it didn't dawn on me how user groupish it was. My MiL was feeling really left out because she didn't bring hers. She did have questions that got...

    How do I detect if a keylogger has been put on my iPad

    Do you find yourself throwing iPad parties?

    I hope that changes for you. Maybe you could find a way to safely meet some of the members here from your area like get a free meeting room at the Sizzler or something.

    You love your tablet!

    I received a very warm and heartfelt text from my sister last week. Call me old-fashioned but it felt hollow. A phone call would have been so much nicer. Back on track, if I am going to text the only device I want to do it on is my iPad.

    Best Stylus for the New iPad

    Hmmm... never thought about different quality styluses (not sure how to make that plural). I have a cheap one from Amazon that I use all the time for drawing and it works great. Why would one work better than another?

    Help!!! Plizz my ipad stolen

    Have you called Apple to report it stolen? They might be able to flag the serial number and let the police know if someone registers it under a new account. The find iPad, iPhone won't work if the feature is not enabled and it certainly doesn't work if the serial number has been registered to...

    How do I detect if a keylogger has been put on my iPad

    Most people do not realize how much information they share voluntarily. People post way too much about themselves on facebook and twitter. Even a message board like this could be a treasure trove of information if you paid attention. Something as simple as wishing each other happy birthday...

    Screen protector or no?

    Instead of continuing to compare opinions please explain why it is a must. I don't see the dangers. I have had an iPad since shortly after the first gen was introduced and never had a scratch. Are there any benchmark tests that prove that damage to a screen protector would actually damage the...

    Displaying your iPad on your Tv (In real time)?

    I am in Aq_oc's camp. I prefer my content be displayed in the aspect it was intended. It is a 4:3ish display. If I tried to force a 16:9 all of the images will be distorted just like they are if you do it with normal TV. It is like looking into a funhouse mirror. Some people can live with...

    Do you find yourself throwing iPad parties?

    Just about everyone we know has an iPad now. The last 5 get-togethers with friends and family have inadvertently turned into iPad user groups. We play games, discuss tips and tricks, and review apps we have found... all unscripted. We take turns mirroring to the big screen to show examples...

    Just a note if you are talking about educational content in a school environment where the wireless might be stretched thin you may experience some lag.

    Increasing Volume ? And, Cable Extending Question ?

    If you buy a charger with a longer cable the only thing you take out of the equation is the male to female connection. While this does create more resistance it should be all but unnoticeable at these short lengths.
