    Does retina display harm your eyes?

    Yes, full brightness all the time would probably damage my eyes. I find it uncomfortable when unnecessary, which is your body's signaling at work. I always start at lowest brightness and adjust up only when needed to balance against ambient light. The whole point of the adjustability is to let...

    What are you guys doing right NOW??? ;)

    Interesting. I've not experienced the screen of death with iOS 7 on my iPad Air, iPhone 4S or iPod touch 5. I wonder why. I've had countless Safari crashes on iPad Air with iOS 7, though. Really annoying. That has made me hold off from buying any new Apple devices indefinitely.

    Does retina display harm your eyes?

    I rolled my eyes, and no problem, lol. I lean toward fact over wild theories. Apple has sold millions upon millions of retina screen devices since iPhone 4. Yes, iPhone 4 -- phones from two generations ago. And it's sold millions upon millions of iPads with retina screen since iPad 3, also two...

    Change my ip address

    Maybe there are apps that people buy and use without a masked IP, but what I've observed is that most people who ask about masking IP addresses are looking to watch movies and shows from another country. What I've found in such cases: Your app is useless without an IP address from that country...

    Change my ip address

    People want to change their IP address to cross country jurisdictions and otherwise mask their IP address. Your Internet provider will not help you with that. As already provided in info and links previously on this thread, there are multiple ways to do that. They usually involve paying for a...

    Upgrading To Ipad Air

    Love my sis-in-law. The funny thing is, she now has a nicer iPad than my brother, who has some sorta wifi iPad 4.

    ITunes Music downloads into Amazon Cloud Player

    Are you guys seeing songs on Cloud Player loaded to iTunes via PC? How about ones bought on iPad via iTunes? On my iPad Air, I have only songs loaded via the latter on the native music app, and most don't show on Cloud Player. (I see just the playlist ones and am missing a bunch otherwise.) I'd...

    ITunes Music downloads into Amazon Cloud Player

    There must be some kind of setting that triggers what you're talking about, because mine doesn't work that way. To test, I just bought a free iTunes song, downloaded it; it shows on my iPad native music app, but it doesn't show on my Cloud Player. The only iTunes songs that show on my Cloud...

    ITunes Music downloads into Amazon Cloud Player

    I wonder if the overseas versions are different from the U.S. version. I've been using the Amazon Cloud Player for a long time and have bought iTunes music since, and none has loaded automatically.

    ITunes Music downloads into Amazon Cloud Player

    The Cloud Player app lets you add iTunes playlists as you choose -- there's no need to turn off, because you actively have to add each playlist; there's no default "on."

    ITunes Music downloads into Amazon Cloud Player

    I think you added playlists from iTunes onto your Amazon Cloud Player app. You can delete them by sliding on them left to right or vice versa. The feature to add iTunes playlists to the Cloud Player app is under settings (which is the gear icon on the upper right). Once you tap that, it's under...

    I don't know how people put up with such weather winter after winter. I wouldn't want to live with one day of such weather!

    This luxurious 24kt gold iPad Air can be yours for $5,000 USD

    Seems like a waste to do that. I'd sell it to some tacky person who'd be willing to pay, then buy an iPad and have a bunch of cash left over, lol.

    What are you guys doing right NOW??? ;)

    Does that mean you're not going to watch any episodes till then? With the Amazon season pass, you can watch each episode as it comes out (sometimes they release them early, too), and you can download episodes to your device(s) for keeps, as well stream if you just want to watch that way. I was...

    What are you guys doing right NOW??? ;)

    Thanks, Scifan. I usually buy the season pass via Amazon, but they haven't made all the season 4 episodes yet, so I will get only a show at a time with the pass. I basically have to decide whether I watch each episode as it comes or ignore the whole season and then watch it in one go after the...

    I've even reading about the return of "Downton Abbey" -- http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/05/arts/television/downton-abbey-returns-to-pbs.html?adxnnl=1&ref=arts&adxnnlx=1388935217-/v7jNnxMkZbgY5aE67WKsQ Netflix has spoiled me. I now want to see entire seasons in one go!

    How Many Apple Products Do You Own?

    I've given away most of my older iPads. I'm now down to an iPad Air 128GB with cellular, iPad 2 64GB, iPod touch 5 with 64GB, and iPhone 4S 64GB. My company supplies a MBP, which I use, but don't much care for. I prefer Windows.

    I find this totally tasteless. I'd be embarrassed to be seen with one, even if someone gave it to me for free.

    With or Without +Cellular

    You get an even better ipad each year for the same price despite inflation, that's tech getting cheaper as well. And Apple not only gave millions of people with less money the chance to buy entry point iPads at lower prices, they helped kick off tablets from a bunch of other companies -- that's...

    With or Without +Cellular

    Entry point iPad mini is $299 and iPad 2 is $399. When iPad started selling, $499 was entry point.

    That's strange about your Kindle e-ink. Both of mine hold charges for at least a month (admittedly using them rarely because of iDevices). I traded in my original Kindle Fire and have the second generation, which doesn't hold a charge for especially long or short. I have two of the second gen...

    Happy birthday and happy new year, Drew! 40 was a blip for me, just like any other birthdays. I've never thought much about birthdays in general, though. I think back on the fun and rewarding experiences I've had over the decades, but I'm still having great new experiences, so don't feel any...

    Apple’s larger-sized iPad is again rumored for launch in October 2014

    Yes, I got a 128GB Air and use my grandfathered AT&T unlimited data on it. (I love AT&T for letting me keep unlimited!) The Air crashes more than any other iPad I've owned, though, ughhh.

    Apple’s larger-sized iPad is again rumored for launch in October 2014

    Agree, AQ. The key target market for a large screen tablet would be professionals -- they would not be individuals with tight budgets. For professionals who need a larger screen, it will become UNaffordable to not get a larger screen, because they will be less competitive than professionals...

    With or Without +Cellular

    Lol. The best thing is customers get to choose and spend less if they'd like. Thanks to iPad's success because of early adopters, not only have iPads become more price accessible, consumers have more choices among tablets. The low-end Kindle Fire is $139. It's hard to believe it was only April...

    Apple’s larger-sized iPad is again rumored for launch in October 2014

    If I were a doctor, salesperson, architect, teacher, etc., I could cradle or hold a larger tablet with one hand / arm while walking around, manipulate it, turn it around instantly and show patients, customers, clients, students, etc., the screen. Then I'd flip it to manipulate some more, then...

    Apple’s larger-sized iPad is again rumored for launch in October 2014

    For me, my original mention of touchscreen covered iPad OS. Mostly, I prefer touchscreen; I've got Android as well, and its OS works well for me, too. As for other Apple OS, I prefer Windows. Those are my personal preferences, though. For some people, especially the elderly and some disabled...

    Apple’s larger-sized iPad is again rumored for launch in October 2014

    Yes, I agree about lots of potential and varying productivity. I've been away from my office for weeks and have been doing work on iPad, as well as on my MBP. I break out the MBP only when I really have to, because of its form factor vs. iPad. Money clearly isn't a consideration, since I have...

    Apple’s larger-sized iPad is again rumored for launch in October 2014

    Yes, I can easily believe it. Many companies are issuing locked-down tablets with nothing but productivity apps. They aren't spending tons on iPads so employees can play Candy Crush or watch videos, lol.

    Most U.S. retail businesses stay open for holidays. Christmas is about the only day that most are closed. Some close early for Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve, but even then, many are open till about 6 p.m. And there's a move on by some big retailers to open all day on Thanksgiving, to try to...

    Apple’s larger-sized iPad is again rumored for launch in October 2014

    By the way, I disagree about tablets not being useful for productivity. I just depends what you're trying to do. People like doctors, educators, sales people, etc., are using tablets to serve patients, students, customers, etc. Just because all some people do with tablets is consume content...

    More and more people can afford iPads now because early adopters bought them by the millions. Tech consistently becomes more affordable over time, as more people adopt it, which is why you see dirt-poor people in third world countries using smart phones now, for example. Even when others can't...

    Apple’s larger-sized iPad is again rumored for launch in October 2014

    By the way, again, Apple isn't worried about cannibalizing its own sales; they're smart enough to realize that that's better than other companies do it. The whole point of having a bigger tablet would be to give customers, especially those with bigger display needs, the device that works best...

    Apple’s larger-sized iPad is again rumored for launch in October 2014

    I'm surprised and amused that you think form factor is just about inches, rather than the fact that a tablet is a flat surface vs. a laptop with keyboard, etc., that's not instantly on or usually lacking in touch screen. The whole point of a bigger screen tablet is to give someone a bigger...

    Apple’s larger-sized iPad is again rumored for launch in October 2014

    You keep talking about portability being the same, which makes no sense. If that were the case, why would any of us have bought iPads when we could've bought netbooks, notebooks and laptops for similar prices or less?

    Problem getting the data from my iPad 1 to my iPad Air

    Try backing up your iPad 1 again. If you still get that error, there's probably something corrupt or off-limits on your iPad 1. Are you jailbroken or have unauthorized/pirated apps, for example? Get rid of those if you do. If that doesn't work, call Apple, because your new iPad comes with free...
