I've been trying a variety of browsers and a few other apps for the iPad. Things definitely start to make sense when you've got some decent software installed. It's still not perfect, and it's still Apple, so I may just jump ship to another device quite soon.

It strikes me that the iPad is best used as a Reader - I suppose that is all it's meant to be (without extra peripheral keyboards). So, I thought I better have a look at the Kindle - I didn't know it had free 3G browsing. I think that is enough for me to try one - I'll post a new topic elsewhere on the forum about it...

Haven't tried it yet. It just applies to Google Maps and Youtube... bit of a letdown really. :/

Is this how you feel after having the iPad placed in front of you?

Indeed they can - and quite accurately too. I react much the same way when approached with iWare.

Minor point: Shouldn't torment a lizard pet too much. Most don't cope with stressful situations all that well.

First they get nasty...

Then, a little later on, they'll often become ill.

Vet time.

$$$$$

(Meanwhile you've taught your lizard it's ok to get nasty when it's around people.)

Bad move.  :)

The ipad, for once, actually offers something not pre-existing. the small form factor of this tablet and fact that it's completely keyboardless was unique to the market.

Er, no. My Archos 5IT was doing this in September 2009 and it was the SECOND generation of Archos Internet Tablets (the first, from about September 2008 was almost identical but ran an Archos version of Linux while the version I have runs Android 1.6 (Donut). Archos also offered a 7" version of the original tablet in September '08...

Monor point

Do you mean a single point or a minor point? I'm confused  ;D

Minor. Fixed it. Thx.

Feel free to ignore too. Just my 2¢ on videos where they're deliberately pissing off an animal.

I'm a bit of a choirboy when it comes to that. But I am that way without going off the deep end (ala PETA) about it. Don't worry. No soapbox or lecture. I promise.  ;D

I'd sure as Hell hope there's no soapbox~! You know how they make soap, right?

SOAP IS MURDER~! SOAP IS MURDER~! SOAP IS MURDER~!

:D


(Sorry - just couldn't resist that one either~! :D )

But it makes me wonder... Just how clean are these PETA people? :P

No worries - I'm not at PETA levels by any stretch (I'm more of a PITA), but I object to mistreating animals for "fun", as well...

You don't need to put the whole link in a wiki link - then it doesn't point to the right location.
