  Basically, when connecting to an access point that supports it, it can use both the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz wireless channels at the same time to transfer data twice as fast.      
Sandpaper is only necessary for use with 7" tablets, 8" tablets (like the iPad mini) do not have this requirement.
For everyone complaining about the pricing of $329.  I am willing to bet this...  Apple will sell exactly every single iPad mini that they can manage to make until the end of the year.  Once supply exceeds demand, they can lower the price to $299 if necessary.  $30 is not such a big deal that people will go crazy (like when the original iPhone dropped from $599 to $399), plus people have an expectation in general that prices will drop after the holidays.  This way Apple...
Absolutely not true, last Black Friday, November 25th, 2011, here were the discounts:   Some examples include: $101 off MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and iMac $41 off iPad 2 $21 off iPod Touch
  If you have ever used a Kindle Fire HD, you would realize that is nothing like an iPad.  It is extremely laggy, touch input is imprecise and the home screen and lock screens are basically an Amazon store.  The app ecosystem is also far inferior.
  This image is so scary primarily because of their facial expressions.  I don't understand why they weren't directed to smile and act like they were actually happy to be holding the device rather than trying too hard to look "hard".  You can't pull off "gangsta hard" as an 8 year old in a Catholic school uniform.
Correct.  A 32 GB iPad reports having a "Capacity" of 28 GB.  iOS then takes up some of that space.  All considered though, the Surface RT initial load does look bloated in comparison.
  Good point, and also, now, we have screens with much higher resolution than we did at the time the statement was made.   I also highlighted in this post how often Steve Jobs changed his public stance on a topic: http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/153072/purported-ipad-mini-parts-show-front-back-panels-lcd-nano-sim-tray/80#post_2203618   There is also a good article here: Shockingly, Steve Jobs wasn't against the idea of an iPad mini... :...
Maybe they are being a good supplier, who doesn't want to compete with a customer who they are going to supply panels for a TV set that said customer is going to unveil in a few months decided to drop their direct to consumer lines of that product.  
Having all those Surfaces flying around is good for when you sit down to watch some content and then need another Surface because the one you were using crashed. It's like a laptop, but you can't use it on your lap, only on a flat surface!
