  1. This is my only concern. I'm perfectly happy with the iPad 1, but I won't be too happy if by the end of the year half the apps don't run on it.
  2. Just to reply to this, what I mean is I want software updates to run fairly well. The 3G is terrible with iOS4, and if you're stuck on iOS3 you miss out on new apps. What I'm saying is I'd like my iPad to be usable in this sense for the next 2 years at least. My MacBook doesn't get left behind like this.
  3. Don't get me wrong I have no problem with updates like this, I'd just like them to last for a few years when you buy them. I mean my previous Macbook lasted 4 years and was fine in terms of running software. I'd like the mobile devices to last at least 3 years really. I want to be using my iPad for a while if possible. £430 is a lot to be spending every year or 2.
  4. Yeah, iPads. I'm not getting another one. I haven't got the kind of money to be getting a new one every year. I'm slightly concerned apps might start to not work on the 1st one given the dual core CPU. I will probably get next years one depending on how the 1st one is doing by then in terms of speed. Anyone with an iPhone 3G will tell you what a couple of years of updates did to it, it was utterly crippled.
  5. I'd change that possible, to definite. The notifications are pretty annoying. I think the thing that annoys me is simply reading or watching something and having it interrupted by a notification that just jumps in front of my face.
  6. See, whereas for me, I prefer the way the iOS home screen looks. I've never really had any desire to see the weather, or my calendar on my homescreen with my other apps. I don't use many widgets on my OS X Dashboard, although I'd be open to an iPad Dashboard. Don't get me wrong, I don't want this to sound like a 'I'm right, youre wrong' comment. I can't stand fanboys. Engadget is utterly full of Android fanboys. Not the kind that are completely pro Android. That I can stand. They're just completely anti-Apple. I don't get it. I don't go around talking shit about Google. Why would anyone need to hear all that?
  7. Because widgets look awful. Every Android homescreen I've seen just looks like a mess of icons and widgets. As for iPad 2, people are saying it's 1.5 but I'm not really sure what else they were supposed to be adding to this thing? I've seen the demos of it, and it looks really fast, must smoother than 3.0 on the Xoom. People are too focussed on specs. If it runs fast, I don't care what hardware it's on. iOS5 will hopefully get rid of the annoying notifications though. :p
  8. I think this is what most people who get an iPad will find. It is the perfect 'casual' computer. You don't always want to be sat on your sofa with a laptop out. I really like the fact that I can now just sit there and look on the internet, check some email, or play some games without having to get my laptop out. I also prefer checking my Things list, and my calendar in the morning on my iPad rather than a small iPhone. I really do find it fits in between Laptop and iPhone. I'm looking forward to seeing some new Mac apps when the App Store opens, hopefully see a lot of creative things like the iPhone has been getting.
  9. Sketchbook Pro for iPad is only 59p at the moment if anyone is interested. I think it's normally £4-5. It seems pretty good so far.
  10. OMFG this game has been out for 3 months! I just said to my girlfriend while looking at my DS games how annoying it is that Hotel Dusk 2 never came out, then happened to look on Wikipedia at Hotel Dusk only to see the sequel was actually released in September! Just need some money now.
  11. I decided to get it for Xmas still. Reviews have been alright. 8s are still a good score and I think it still looks good from the videos I've seen.
  12. Plants vs Zombies is perfect for a touch screen.
  13. My girlfriend lol. She's into games but she's not really got the understanding of how a childish looking game (Viva Piñata for instance) isn't necessarily for kids. Hence me thinking this looks pretty cool and might be worth getting for Christmas.
  14. So is this a kind of 'for all ages' game, Sort of how Mario Galaxy is? I only ask because I got laughed at earlier for saying it looked pretty decent because it's Mickey Mouse...
  15. Look forward to hearing your thoughts on it. Think Windows Phone 7 looks really good, but with a few concerning issues for me.
  16. I'm hoping to get each app individually through the app store. I have used Garageband about 3 times in the last 4 years, so I'm not bothered about that. I use iPhoto a lot, and sometimes iMovie, so I'd rather just get the ones I'd use.
  17. Yeah, I agree. I assume they just thought multitasking was a more important issue to work on this time. I'm more concerned with notifications really. I just think every smartphone OS is doing it better than Apple right now, and it's extremely annoying to be reading a news story and have a notification pop in front of you and interrupt you. I'm far more concerned with that, than seeing a calendar appointment and how much mail I have. These can be easily checked by unlocking the phone.
  18. I won't be getting one as I have an iPhone that I'm extremely happy with. But I can appreciate what they are doing, and in some cases they're doing them better than Apple. Notifications for instance. A decent lock screen as well.
  19. Totally agree, I'm enjoying it as well, I just wish the levels were in an order like the old games, I find it weird that they're not. Yes, it is weird isn't it? You can jump and when in mid air let go of the stick and you will totally stop moving forward. It's pretty easy to get used to, but it's still something I'd like them to fix.
  20. I thought that ad was going to be 'The phone is so good you can't put it down'. But no. It's the phone that's designed to be used less... Aside from that ad, I still think it looks pretty good. I think they've come up with some genuinely good ideas, and although I think it looks weird in spots, and they are missing some features right now, I think it looks really promising.
  21. Definitely get the iPod version. I can't imagine playing this with a joypad. I have it on iPhone and on iPad, and both are great, but the iPad version is amazing thanks to the bigger screen. iPhone version is still excellent though. And you can take it wherever you go.
  22. It might well be but its still a horrible interface to be using on a touch screen. Android might have some 'large phone' applications right now, but it still looks much better than using Windows. To be clear, I'm not slagging off Windows 7 in general, just on a touch device.
  23. Agreed. The display alone is worth it.
