    iPad mini Review

    I haven't noticed an issue between the retina and display of the iPad mini. I use my mini as a reading device which also will fill in the random web surf, email, and youtube tasks as needed. But 90% is reading. This is coming from reading on my iPhone 4 for the last 6 months. So the screen...

    Just got it!

    It is a bit thinner. And much lighter, naturally. But it's a tad bit harder to pick up due to the more round edge. But if you're lucky enough to have long fingers such as myself, I can grasp the mini with one hand off a flat surface.

    Post your iPad mini mega iPhone pics!

    Lets show off a little.. lets see your iPad mini mega iPhone! And give a tad of what you bought it for. For myself, only reason I got the iPad mini is for travel, reading the news (Flipboard) and basic web surfing when the Macbook Air 13" seems like too much of a pain to unplug and use. I...

    iPad Mini Charging Times w/ 5-Watt Power Adapter

    Didn't apple roll out the 12w adapter? I thought about picking one up.. but figure just throw the damn thing on the charger when I go to bed and call it good. I hope Apple or Twelve South comes out with a nice dock station. I read the news on my iPad mini mega iPhone so it'll be hanging out on...

    iTunes sucks > Mini

    No they are not responsible for my internet "problems". And FYI, I don't have internet "problems". Not everyone has cable internet, dsl or even dial up. But if you want to defend the fact their products are too secure and it's my problem, then post away. I find it hard to understand how my...

    iTunes sucks > Mini

    Apple always goes for "Simple" and "Just works". Not everyone has access to such luxury features. I can't restore/upload my favorite apps on my iPad from my older iPad because I need iTunes 10.7 What makes this difficult for me is the fact that I don't have internet at my home and rely on AT&T...

    Just got it!

    I noticed the screen too. To me, the screen feels "cheap". Doesn't really feel like glass either. It's smooth..but touchy touchy feel too pressed. Other than that, I love it. Can't wait to try it tonight in bed as I read the news before I snooze away :)

    ipad Mini shipping

    Mine arrived at 12:14pm First thoughts.. Front glass display feels cheap. Super light -Nice! Size - Perfect! Seems quite a bit faster than my current iPhone 4 Display, looks a little bit sharper than my iPad 2, not near as crisp at iPhone 4 but colors are vidid and sharp. I don't forsee any...

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

    LOL the typical "I'm going to wait until the next one comes out" thought process. Always waiting for the next best thing... Enjoy life today. No sense in waiting. If the product fits your needs today, buy it today. Simple as that.

    iPad Mini obsolete already?

    I love the ipad/iphone toys. But I'm not one that buys such toys for their full use. I don't need a "life remote" like android seems to try and do. I just need/want something easy to use with email, reading news, weather check, youtube and photos. I'm 26.

    iPad Mini's New Rear

    you kids and your "protect the back". Never understood the case wars.. I can understand the case to give more grip. But in fear of scratching the back? Really? ...the part of apple fans I'll seriously never understand. To be fair I will be getting a clear protector for front/back of my i5 but...

    Who's planning to stand in line tomorrow at 8AM for the iPad Mini?

    I ordered online. I live on the border to mexico. There are 700k "residents"..but figure all the aliens there is close to 1million people. Plus the bus loads of people that cross the border daily. Shopping down here on a regular tuesday is like Black Friday in my home town of Denver. Shopping...

    ipad Mini shipping

    ...or as I crated..... apple won't give you a tracking number until the item has "shipped". However shipping started a few days after the order started. HEre's the details to my thread. But all is pointless now as today is the 2nd and everyone should have their tracking numbers by now (those...

    Track your iPad via UPS without tracking number

    Puzzled as to why Apple store keeps telling me "Prepairing for shipment" and my iPad mini should be here on Friday. If you go to UPS.com and track your package via "reference" you can enter your information (use your phone number you gave apple) and it will pull up the tracking information...

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

    I thought about it.. but eh... if I have to go through the effort to get my MBA out, turn it on, sit and wait for it to read the USB data card, click connect... then I might as well just use my laptop to do internet like activities. From lifting to the lid, to being connected to the AT&T LTE...

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

    I had an iPad 2. But when I moved into the new apartments they have yet to install the fiber optic lines for internet (new complex). So they give all the new residents these AT&T LTE cards. No monthly price, unlimited data. Downside is the USB. So my iPas 2 was considered useless. Sold it for...

    I ordered mine. 16GB wifi white & silver. Ordered it at 2:08am local time. Says it be here NOV 2nd, however it's still as of 5 minutes ago "preparing to ship". Though in my case..this is all kind of pointless. I placed my order for my white verizon iPhone 5 on October 25th and it's expected...

    I'm back.. question about hotspots

    I agree. Before I used roughly 2-3gb of data per month on my iPhone alone. Would stream Pandora radio in my truck. Also I never setup wifi at my office so I was using data at the office as well (Pandora with headphones on when doing my reports). But I finally put the password in for the wifi...

    I'm back.. question about hotspots

    Also on a side note, I live 3 miles from Mexico border. The whole town here (roughly 600k population) is so back-dated it's pathetic. Which also means, no 4G service down here... I pay $40 for 25mbps cable internet.. I pull 3-6mbps durring the day, and maybe 15mbps at night after peak hours...

    I'm back.. question about hotspots

    I thought about the mobile hotspot idea (had one before with Sprint) and personally, I hate it. It's another device to carry around, and another charger to look out for. While it's great for out on the road, and such, it's just not for me. And I would never use the 5GB of data for $50 a month...

    I'm back.. question about hotspots

    iPhone 4 via Verizon. Yes it can be used as a hotspot from Verzion, for $20 a month for 2GB of data. I however, have unlimted data and hope to keep it that way. If I add the tether package for $50 (30 data on phone, $20 for "HOTSPOT" use), then I loose my unlimited data and bumped to only 2gb...

    I'm back.. question about hotspots

    I upgraded to iOS 5 2nd day it was released. Sorry, forgot to mention that. But I assume if possible on iOS 4 it will be able to work on iOS 5 once they jailbreak/unlock (if not already)

    I'm back.. question about hotspots

    I got an iPad 2 awhile ago. Gave my dad my orig iPad. Got the Verizon iPhone 4 on launch day.. unlimited data, unlimited talk/text, full insurance, and everything for $64 a month (I get a very nice discount). However, I'd like to keep my unlimited data, but still use my iPhone as a hotspot for...

    What is left to add on iPad3? Worth the wait?

    Verizon or AT&T for iPad 2

    That brings up another point.. Verizon soon to end unlimited data plan on iPhone 4. Thankfully I got mine locked in.. I'm already over the 2gb and still have a week to go! Wonder if verizon will add unlimited data for the iPad as well, or cap it at 2gb. Or if they run it with iPhone data...

    ipad 2, I'll just wait for #3

    Poor folk won't buy a 2nd iPad. Any who, I have a valid reason to buy the iPad 2. My iPad is going to be full blown work tool, and iPad 2 is my personal. Or I may give my iPad to my dad.. Dunno quite yet. Either way I'm getting the new one. I can really use the cameras..

    Knowing what you know NOW ~ would you still buy your ipad?

    I am both, a PC and iPhone/iPad user. Soon a ipod touch user as well as a Mac 27". In all honestly, I love the iPad for its ease of use and form. It's thin, and great battery life. I use it often around the house for facebook and reading the news and weather. the iPhone 4 I have (before a...

    Contacts sync with iPhone

    How in the heck does this sync between the iPhone and iPad work?? If I understand correctly, if I put data into my iPhone, I need to do it under the "Exchange" google account. Basicly the contacts are saved on my phone, but also in the "cloud"?? And further more, this makes it possible for the...
