The really big snafu was that after updating the Evernote app from an iDevice and changing passwords, sign-in failed. The password change was effectively recorded though because the website would recognize it and allow sign-in, just the app gave an error notice. Deleting and re-installing the app fixed it, but some users reported data loss. I didn't lose any of mine, but then I had an earlier version of Evernote in my old iPad so maybe it just synced from there, dunno.
Funny but I tried this out on my 2005 PPC eMac and it did not write any data to disk, just consumed RAM.
"Available on OS X, Windows and Linux, the untethered hack allows users to jailbreak their devices without having to connect to a computer." Wrong again. The jailbreak itself requires connection to a computer. It is "untethered" in that a jail broken device need not be reconnected to a computer thereafter to reboot. I think everybody knows that.
She said on her iPad.
"It comes with its own app, which also allows users to dump content from an iPad or iPhone's internal storage directly to the drive. That's not going to work for content purchased through iTunes, but it will work for things like photos and videos taken with the device." According to one review on Amazon, getting content from iTunes to the Seagate is as simple as a drag and drop.
This is what I get selecting "Updates" in iOS 6.1 on my 3rd generation iPad LTE Also, under any of the other selections such as Purchased there are no reviews or product details shown, just a scroll of Version Histories. Incidentally, I updated over WiFi from the last version of iOS 5, having skipped the earlier versions of iOS 6. What gives? Edit: Problem solved. Swiping backwards brought up the correct Update window. Whew!
The only feature I find missing from Safari on iOS is fullscreen mode on the iPad (whereas it is automatically enabled on the iPhone.) Don't understand why Apple insists we stare at that distracting URL bar all the time. Love the full screen mode and other nifty features in Atomic Web Browser; unfortunately that app just gets more and more buggy with each release. Anyway, it appears that Opera's new Ice browser will not be using compression like their mini web...
Frustratingly, neither Apple nor Google Maps for iOS offer biking directions; only Google's web app has this feature. Furthermore, dragging to change route on the web app is no longer supported on iOS, a real PITA as biking directions so often need to be modified. D'oh!
The reason the percentage of an iDevice's total cost that goes to labor is so small is that the assembly workers are paid so little. It takes about eight hours to assemble an iPad; in the USA that could easily cost $120 to $200 per device, as opposed to $10 in China.
So about the same dpi as the iPad 2 then?
