Re: @Anon 15:45
Or they are just not selling so many. I have the ipad 3. I have no intention of upgrading mine works just fine thanks and does all what I need it to do.
That film looks so bad I want to see it.
I buy apple kit but use android phone. I buy what works for me. Apple laptops do cost more, but my one of my old laptops from apple is still working today 8 years on and still running most of the apps if not the latest osx. In that time I had 3 windows laptops. Slow to a crawl and a desktop.... .
I'm no fan boy I have an iPad, I have a nexus 7 the new one on order. If it works for me I buy it.
I think taking sides in tech is pointless.
Just could help my self to down toe that post....I'm dempulican.
Oh dear... before criticising MS's efforts, TheRegister should at least post its own guide to Living in Blighty, so we readers can compare efforts (or rather, just have a giggle).
Eng.: n pastry based snack, often containing beef. Best sampled from a bakery rather than from a gas station.
US: n device for covering a stripper's nipple.
Should also warn may also contain horse/pork/or other unidentified meats.
Tablet or phone
I make few phone calls so a bigger screen is more useful. If I hold a large slab to side of my head to take the odd call I dont see the issue. Still on the Note One. I still think I could go slightly bigger, as long as it fits in a pocket and has a removeable battery Im in.
Re: Apple is certainly in a rut
Why do you have to use apples external DVD. I bought a Phillips one for 1/3 of that a few years ago when my internal one went tits up. It works brilliantly and although almost a big as a mac mini it works flawlessly.
Any phone can be tracked.Phone polls cell and cell and tell the angle and direction and estimate distance.
In a city you can be pinpointed.
But I get the point if apple is collecting this type of information its breaking the law in UK.
mines ok, battery life is ok but comparing against ipad one its not as good but I watch a lot of video and I still get almost two days use. Light use more than ok.
Love my fondleslab
My iPad 1 gets loads of use and once the samsung note comes out my old nexus phone can be the wife's and I'll have a new phone slab. I use my iPad more at home cause I can browse the web by the tv with instant on.
I have an iPad it's ok but crippled by being locked and no flash. I gonna buy me an android tablet zoom or one of the others. I make this choice, I love my mac pro, not over the moon about iPhone 4 prefer my nexus one. I'm not a fan boy I have feet in both camps and think iPad will struggle against the onslaught. from android.
No problems here
I had an android phones since t mobiles G1 now using a google nexus and have never had any of these problems. I also have an iPhone and in my view the android is a better phone, iPhone is a toy...another fanboy rant?

Cabbage crates coming over the briney
iPad v laptop
I bought an iPad it does not replace my laptop it is an instant on coffee table device. If I need to to do some intensive stuff I reach for my laptop. It has replace my net book though which takes an age to boot and an age to do anything useful.
Laptop will live on iPad will replace most people net books
my two pennies worth
I'm in UK but have seen the video and the retraction on a Revision 3 podcast.
I have a mac pro and too be honest I'm beginning to think that apple are now the evil empire not microsoft. Maybe its time to go fully linux.
We should have never bailed out the Banks. They should have crashed at least we would not be paying for the forseebale future whilst same banks are making money and paying themselves bonuses all over again.
I had mine a week, no duty so with UK charger (I can still use us one had a adapter) came to £330 unlocked. i remembered all my G1 setting including the apps I had aleady bought just had to re download them. I sold my G1 for £60 so I happy. Its a loverl phone an even some of my Jesus phone mates have said its close to being an iphone beater. (Ithink it already is).
Anyway once its launched here I sure sales will pick up. in the mean time I have cool phone non of my mates have.
BTW delivery was super fast, ordered Friday morn including the engraving and it arrived Monday am.
