    I went to play with a new ipad.

    Side by side everything's sharper and crisp. Everything is so much more vivid. It's like a mega contrast improvement. Anyone who can say " no big deal " after seeing side by side, one new ipad3 wallpaper at a time again ,side by side and don't get excited at the difference is simply...

    Best flight simulator

    That's interesting. I'm a big xplane user. Been contemplating lessons . Soon maybe. Is it possible you might have to tweak the Adjustment settings. They really produce a affect individually that is very sensitive. Given the fact that your experience lends itself to your being correct You...

    How many ipads in Space?

    Wright lol. I failed to remember that. Lol. Actually that speaks to the device's popularity and demand. Gotta love it though. As far as why Cosmonauts have two up there and us Yankees do not ? I figure they were offered to them and maybe even bribed by Apple to introduce them up there...

    Anyone buy a grifin survivor case for new ipad yet?

    Wright , no front screen buffer , not even close to the quality gumdrop or griffin offers for what I believe is close in price. The later two are worth every penny of the 69 and or $79. They charge. Dust filters included.

    How will u really improve the next iPad ( not fantasy)

    I don't feel modifications such as a screen with no bezel is at all fantasy. Like the best tv's out now, apple needs styling like this on ipad. All screen edge to edge is impossible or out of the question.? It's the kind of mod that can separate iPad from the rest again. Dont wait for...

    4 bad iPads. Dust and dead pixels on new iPad

    I can understand your Opinion about the issue but first consider the numbers sold to the number of units with less than perfect screens. Issues if you will. All electronics manufactured in great numbers have a certain number with flaws. They can not check every one. Apple is best in the...

    Anyone buy a grifin survivor case for new ipad yet?

    They advertise it for use with ip2 and 3. I called them, they said they are only going on specs supplied to them in reference to new iPad. They call it ipad3 on the site. Before fri 16 th they never had positive knowledge it would fit. " it should " they said. The gumdrop drop series is...

    2nd round of screen comparisons going on in my house today

    Second set of people ( just 3) happen to be in my home today and of course none are iPad funatics like my family. Except my son's buddy which was involved in last nights comparison session. It has been unanimous at this point that the new Retina display is considerably sharper ,brighter...

    My new iPad is back in the box to be returned :-(

    It's just the one in maybe a couple of thousand that had a assembly issue. imagine a QC check put in place before boxing but it can't be every individual unit. You will be made satisfied, if not already with an apology and a smile at the Apple store. Go get your replacement and enjoy. It's...

    Is the new screen that big of a deal?

    I respectfully disagree. If you bring up the settings wallpapers and do side by side , one by one , which myself and several reliable people with me spent 35 minutes doing tonight, it's impossible not to see the difference. It's not slight either. In a overly bright apple store with all...

    Is the new screen that big of a deal?

    When I put the both iPads side by side and put up a wallpaper from the settings choices the difference is very clear. Very clear ! Sharpness and contrast are exactly what apple has boasted it would be. Color contrast is gorgeous. I go to my ipad2 and as much as it is still my favorite being...

    Got it in hand finally

    Disappointed about this gumdrop drop series case. They told me along with the Griffin case co. That they will fit. The inner shell does not snap its tabs securely enough for my taste. Now I must buy another one on payday. Until then I have to be carefully not to fall asleep using it...

    New Ipad Cases

    Holding my new iPad in hand ,the first thing I did was try to fit her in my gumdrop drop series case. No good. No matter what they tell ya don't listen. Companies like griffin survivor and gumdrop drop series are saying ipad3 will go in the same ipad2 case. It don't fit the inner shell...

    Got it in hand finally

    Now to set it up. Enjoy everyone. FedEx is great Guess it'd be better. To post this from the new iPad but iTunes is at least 12 hours away. It's relaxing just to obtain it. That seemingly long road is traveled.

    Who is getting their 3 first?!

    In my hands. It has 79 % power up already. No difference in size visibly but the set up graphics are nice. Imagine once we set up from itunes

    That's it Mike. Key Rest. I'm actually going to pick it up north of Key Rest this morning. On my way now. Ft Myers is a major hub for FedEx. Need to be there for a couple of days. Don't know when I'm going to be able to sit back and unbox it though. I'm told I might get a phone call...

    I have a very high spam count

    Forgot my spam list for about 3weeks or more. I find 1288 spams sitting there waiting to be erased on my ipad2. Is there any easier way to do this beyond tapping 8 at a time individually ? Please say there is .

    These days in this overall, sad state off affairs in reference to the world economy your lucky to have an iPad. 1, 2or 3 only matters to the individual. There is such a minor set of differences that it gets back to being lucky to have one. Count your blessings, not features. Forget what...

    How many ipads in Space?

    Hear two ipad2's are present on the international space station. In what capacity is anyone's guess. I imagine there is some very useful operations related function but it has to be supplying some stress relief also. In other words, fun.

    US Air Force Orders $9 Million-Worth of iPad 2s

    Put yourself in that 12,000 ft. Position. Wouldn't you have a backup when it's that easy to bring up with you? The fact that they put that much confidence in what some people refer to as a " toy " is astonishing. Pilots are the definition of perfectionists.

    Another Samsung Source Says 7.85 iPad is on the Way

    Although its only rumors now it has been something that has come up in the last 60 days or so quite a bit. No way to know yet. Interesting concept but I must go back to what Steve Jobs said again and again, " I won't make one " "the knitch is just not there ". I wonder if they will make one...

    More New iPad Graphics and Video Emerge From Hong Kong

    Is that 90 to 140 feet per second ? That is how we measure our ammo at the range. An increase of 50 fps with my .45 would be nice depending on either hollow points or ball nose ammo... I might be the only one but I admit I do not know what fps applies to when it comes to iPads. I always...

    When were you CHARGED for your order?

    I ordered @ 7:30 eastern on march 7th. I noticed the check on the cards validity within 15 minutes. Thought I was late in ordering but it seems Apple made enough to handle a huge initial wave of orders for Friday ,march 16th deliveries. You really got to hand it to Apple. They are the best...

    Anyone else so disappointed they want to cry?

    I believe Apple has kept the iPad fresh and on the leading edge of the industry with this chapter . Esthetics were always there. You did get 8mm's more IPad this time around though.

    New Ipad Cases

    I might look into otter box or griffin to see if an ipad3 case is on market for it. I'll get my new iPad on Friday. My ipad2 has been in a gumdrop drop series rubber case and screen protection layer since day 1. It's in pristine condition. I think the gumdrop drop series ( military ) case...
