    Anybody like me?: Love the iPad, but prefer Android phones over the iPhone?

    Yes, but you have to have a phone that has people devving for it. You never have that problem with ios. And with those tweaks, generally speaking, you can't just load an app store kinda thing like Cydia, you have to go to a forum, find where it is, and do that for each thing. I'm not saying...

    TUTORIAL - Jailbreak the iPad2 and iPad3 on 5.1.1 With Absinthe 2.0

    Whenever I would click reload it didn't do anything. Normally it sits at "Packages: Done" forever, but it just flashes the black bar and seems to show that it's done reloading. And yes, I'm not stupid, I know servers go down, but it's been giving me the same response each of the last 20+ times...

    Anybody like me?: Love the iPad, but prefer Android phones over the iPhone?

    Actually, the be fair to that guy, it is a bit harder to theme the status bar and that kind of stuff on Android phones than on an iPhone. Other than changing kernel stuff, it's easier to do a lot of stuff on the iPhone than on Android. Now if you take two completely stock phones, that's a...

    TUTORIAL - Jailbreak the iPad2 and iPad3 on 5.1.1 With Absinthe 2.0

    I jail broke my iPad 3,1, and I have cydia, and Absynthe says everything went ok, but everything is missing from my sources except for 1 source. Nothing in BigBoss, ZodTTD or ModMyI. Someone help me? EDIT:: Tried erasing and re-adding the sources, and when I type them in exactly as they were...

    Anybody like me?: Love the iPad, but prefer Android phones over the iPhone?

    I'm right there with ya OP, got a wifi iPad 3 and an HTC rezound. I love iPhones, but screen size and battery life killed me for me. I know iPhones generally get better battery life, but with the extended battery, under opted/underclocked(slightly) kernel, and data/wifi/Bluetooth off when I turn...

    Very Disappointed by Quality of Available iPad3 Cases

    Don't get a case lol unless you plan on dropping it. I understand a case for a phone, but I don't have a case or screen protector on my iPad, have had an iPad 2 since launch, and my new iPad since launch, never had a scratch on either one, front or back. I did use a smart cover for a while on my...

    Can RDP be used just like Remote Desktop connection, also question regard dictation

    Problem with Splashtop is you have to be on the same connection, meaning you could just as easily just be on the computer itself lol

    How do non-Retina optimized apps look on a retina screen?

    They will look pretty much identical as they do on the iPad 2

    Smart covers?

    I have a smart cover for my 3rd gen iPad, and I love it. Doesn't do anything about cleaning the screen, don't buy that crap, but it is perfect for what I need. It's essentially a hardcore screen protector, that can be removed. Protects it very well (as in, no scratches) when on, but can folded...

    New ipad battery depletion while plugged in

    Are you using the cable that came with the iPad itself? All other cables will not work.

    Wireless Charging

    Is that what wireless means? But no, you can't do that with any idevice as the batteries are not user accessible. Something would need to be plugged in to the dock connector.

    How well do "folder" cases fit since the back is no longer flat?

    What back are you referring to? The new iPad's back is flat, exactly the same as the iPad 2, it's just a hair thicker.

    New iPad 3 returned - Dead pixels on screen.

    Picked my first one up on day one, got it set up, went to browser and noticed some, so I loaded a blank page and counted 11 dead pixels AND a piece of dust under the glass. Went back and got it swapped out quickly and have had no problems yet :)

    ipad will not log on to wifi

    Are you using the right encryption type? And are you sure you have Internet? Maybe try turning your router off for a few minutes then try again.

    Weird Charging Problem

    The cable I was using was a new one from a 4S bought a week ago, the one that wouldn't charge past 80 or so percent. I then switched cables and the next night it charged to 100%, I hardly think its,the chargers fault.

    iPad 3 a big let down plus iPad 4 wish list

    The screen upgrade makes photos, webpages, email, and the most important part of any mobile device these days - apps, look unbelievably better than the iPad 2 or original. And because photos, webpages, email and apps are like 85% of the reason you buy a tablet, that's a pretty damn good deal...

    Weird Charging Problem

    That's what I'm thinkin. The one included with the new iPad might be just slightly thicker or somethin along those lines, but I dont know lol

    iPad 3 a big let down plus iPad 4 wish list

    I don't understand your wishlist. 1 - Faster processor would be welcome, but if your only reason is so you can tell the difference, that is completely stupid. It does everything quickly. 2 - Higher resolution screen? Really? Are you completely ignorant? You said people can't even tell the...

    Weird Charging Problem

    That's the thing though, I didn't know I wasn't using it lol I'm guessing I got the iPhone and iPad cord mixed up when I set up the iPad through iTunes and then also backed up my iPhone. I didn't even think about the cord until it was said lol

    Weird Charging Problem

    Pictures of Plain White Wallpaper on iPad-3 !

    I didn't know a simple request for a blank white picture was so difficult for people to grasp. You're all acting like its some huge undertaking lol OP, just google white wallpaper or white background

    Weird Charging Problem

    That actually makes sense, I might have mixed my iPhone and iPad charger cable. I'm gonna try that next time, thanks. If this doesn't help I guess I'm gonna head to the Apple store and see what they say.

    New iPad -- Problems with Presenting Text in Online Magazines?

    Images look very good, and the text looks fine. The only thing I can think of is that because it isn't HTML text, it's essentially a picture of text, so it is closer in resolution to the previous iPads and is up scaling the image for the increased resolution. That's my guess

    Weird Charging Problem

    Nope, using the charger that came with the iPad. And never had any problem powering anything else. I don't know what to do lol

    Weird Charging Problem

    Ive had my iPad since launch a week ago, and the first charge was fine, but I've had to charge it twice since then, and I have to go through about 5-10 outlets before it'll even start charging (it usually makes the plugged in noise then just says 'Not Charging') and even then it only charges to...

    Apple Store Pick-Up Confirmation - Where is it????

    That's why I love Wal-Mart lol I'll be getting mine pretty much tonight, at 12:01am :) And I live in the middle of nowhere, don't assume many people will be there and they have 12 of each unit in stock. I'll have my new iPad before a lot of people are going to bed tonight lol

    Battery Depletion Rate.

    Wow I feel bad for the people with bad batteries, I would exchange them. With all notifications on, location services on, and push emails on, auto-brightness with the bar set to half I get about 11-12 hours of use out of mine.

    iPad 2 glass much more durable

    Just cause the glass is more flexible does not mean indefinitely that it is stronger. Because it is thinner, it might be more susceptible to breaking from a shock, not bending. When was the last time your iPad bent AT ALL lol Flexibility doesn't,t really matter, it's the ability to brush off...

    Is it just me or does IPAD2 camera really stink?

    But then apple wouldn't be able to sell to OEMs, thus having 0 market. OEMs with unlimited data would not support a device that completely hogs the network like crazy.

    iPad 2 Graphics Benchmarks: Way Better Than the Xoom, Kills the Original iPad

    People talking about the screen resolution killing the xoom, there is not enough of a pixel difference to account for the less than half graphics performance. So there ya go

    Do you password lock your Ipad

    Just to let everyone who locks it so if it's stolen it's useless, all it takes is a restore and setup as new iPad to make it basically factory stock. So password is basically pointless. PIN would suffice for most, to keep kids out of it, but for someone stealing it, you could have a...

    The Official I got my iPad 2 Thread!

    I got to my local Best Buy store just before 3:30 and was about 15th in line. They had to turn away quite a bit of people as the store only had 20 iPads, and no 3G versions. Glad I got the one I wanted lol
