When the iPad mini first came out, many of the reviews were quite positive. But Dave Winer of Gizmodo famously wrote:
By the way, this is why the orchestrated reviews of products are often worthless. I invite Mossberg, Pogue or Gruber to re-review their iPad Mini now, a week after their initial reviews, and let us know if they’re actually using it. And if they still think it’s a winner.
Well, I’ve been using my iPad mini this whole time, and put my full sized iPad to the side. The mini is now my go-to device, no hyperbole at all.
What about you? If you own an iPad mini, is it worth it? Still? Let us know in the poll to the right!
Just a few days ago, iTunes 11 was released into the wild with all of its fancy new features. Although the paint is still drying on this new version of the often maligned software, we wanted to know what you think about it. Does iTunes 11 finally make iTunes work for you? Is it still too unwieldy and complicated? Ultimately, do you like iTunes 11? Let us know in the poll to the right!
I had an interesting discussion with my wife the other day. When I picked out my iPad mini, I went with white. Although I love the black for my full sized iPad, I didn’t like the black back on the mini, so I bought one in white. For her, black is the only option, no question asked.
What about you? Do you have/want a black iPad or a white one? Let us know in the poll to the right!
The iPad is a pretty great device, as we all know. Now, we’ve got two basic sizes to choose from: the iPad mini, and the iPad, umm, regular? Well whatever you call it, there are still two basic devices out there you can get.
Whether you’re in the market for a new iPad today, or you’re going to wait until another one comes out, here’s the question: will you buy an iPad mini or a regular sized model? Is the size your main preference or is it the available horsepower? Let us know in the poll to the right!
The iPad mini has been out for a week now, and if you were one of the lucky few who got one on launch day or shortly thereafter, it’s been in your hands for about a week, give or take.
In my case, I’m finding the iPad mini more useful than my regular iPad in many different situations. It’s not perfect, and it could be improved, but I find myself using it more and more every day.
What about you? Do you like it? Does it suck? Are you going to utilize Apple’s 14-day return policy? Let us know in the poll to the right!
The iPad mini is officially for sale and in stores (assuming they have stock, anyway). So did you buy one? Do you want one? Sure, that’s all great, but what do you think about it?
See, lots of people are saying some negative things about the iPad mini, particularly in regards to the lack of a Retina display. But is that a deal breaker for you? Are there other reasons that you don’t want or like the iPad mini? Let us know in the poll to the right!
Did you get any sleep on Thursday night? If you were preordering the new iPad mini, chances are you didn’t. That’s because preorders went live at midnight Pacific time in the U.S., which kept a lot of east coasters up pretty late into the night (or early in the morning, depending on your perspective).
So did you preorder one? Were you able to get the order placed at all? Are you going to wait in line instead? Let us know in the poll to the right!
It’s been rumored for a long time now, but we finally found out about the big announcement the other day: Apple has something “more” to show us. What could it be?
If you believe the rumor mill, we’re going to see a 7.85-inch iPad, new 13-inch MacBook Pros with Retina displays, iPads with Lightning connectors, upgraded Mac minis, redesigned iMacs and maybe — just maybe — a flying unicorn that cries rainbow tears.
What’s your guess? Let us know in the poll to the right!
When I bought my first iPad, I wasn’t really sure what I was going to do with it. Over time, I learned that it was great for pretty much everything — games, writing, watching movies — but for the most part, I read and play games on my iPad.
My wife, on the other hand, she’s all about productivity on her iPad. She’s always getting things done and working on some new to-do list — she even uses it for her grocery lists.
What about you? What do you use your iPad for the most? Let us know in the poll to the right!
Lots of talk recently about that rumored iPad mini. As of Wednesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that there are already companies working on the rumored 7.85-inch device, and that it’s coming in October.
I’ve also read rumors (although I can’t find them now, of course), that Apple will send out invitations on October 10, then follow that up with an event on Oct 17. Sometimes when these things are so incredibly specific, they seem plausible.
So what about you? Do you think the iPad mini will be out this month? Let us know in the poll to the right!
