Same here in Buckinghamshire.

Our 7 year old was diagnosed at the age of 4 with high functioning ASD. We still think he fits Aspie better, but whatever the label it has helped get him from being an...

:confused: Nope. The iPhone doesn't have a SIM in it, so it makes a better choice than an iPod Touch where you already have an old iPhone lying around. His iPhone 3GS was retired and he got a 4S...

Ever so slightly judgemental.

You really wouldn't approve of my (then) three year old having an iPad and iPhone then? :D

We happened to visit Chester Zoo on that Sunday and she was signing copies then too :D

A bit of a shame the book was 20 at the Zoo, when it is 9 at Amazon. Amazon is either brilliant or destroying...

Because the screen on the Air is thin, low power, super high resolution and superb?

The iPad range could do with some improvements (what couldn't) but the screen isn't one of them.

iOS browsers can change their user agent strings too, so that argument doesn't really hold water.

Apple must be doing something right too, based on the gazillion dollars they've amassed and that...

We were told to take all the VM equipment to our new address (non-cabled) area and it would be collected today 8am-12pm. Unsurprisingly, no-one turned up.

The cable box is 10+ years old. The modem...

Don't agree. Old AppleTV was far better. This is just the same without the hard drive or connectivity.

No Apps? No iPlayer? No download off-peak (when bandwidth is cheap) for later viewing. No...

Agree. Laptops (and netbooks) are better for some things, and some users. iPad for others. Choice is good and I wouldn't presume to tell anyone which is right for them.

Unfortunately, many seem to...

Battery life is from our experiances here, and we've thousands of them. 10 hours+ life on the iPad is while doing battery intensive stuff, like video.

Well yes, the App Store runs on Pc/Mac (as well as directly on iPhone/iPod/iPad) but it is specifically for iPod (touch)/iPhone and iPad apps. That's the point. A very nice, easy to use eco-system.

Not true. An Apple laptop is around 500 more, as is an equally specced, equally well built pc. Of course a laptop doesn't have a gorgeous multitouch screen, huge battery life and the app store.

Spot on. The iPad is not, not does it try to be, a laptop.

So far it has far surpassed any use I personally have for a laptop.

Air video requires server software to be running on your Mac or PC in order to transcode on the fly. I stream from my ReadyNAS to my iPad, but my Mac needs to be on in order to do the conversion.

7am on the 10th. 32gb wifi.

Also got a 3 MiFi with PAYG data. Better value for me than the 3g model as only expecting to need 3g occasionally.
