You really have no clue what your talking about do you?  Just because it has more cores does not mean its faster.  In fact the A7 handily hammers the exynos octa 8 core from samsung into the pavement.  You really need to read more before you post.

 

Heres some light reading for your education:

At some things and on a very tiny display. As an SoC it still has some blind spots. The physics performance and triangle throughput aren't impressive. The A6 actually beats it at some very important things. We have yet to see how it's going to perform on the massive iPad screen. We also don't know if the bugs in the M7 that have messed up the gyroscope, compass, and level on the iPhone 5S have been fixed yet. We also don't know how the battery performance is going to be yet. Basically we don't know anything until it gets put in the hands of some unbiased reviewers. I like Consumer Reports myself.

Here's the thing. I'm going to be calm and nice, and state facts. And you are going to be abusive. And we'll both know who the better person is.

Some just never experience what a real tablet or phone or computer is but they do know about bad experiences, funny thing is they rinse and repeat same process ..... Silly Rabbits!


A good and bad experience is subjective even for those that made these products. Steve Jobs once said anything under a 10" tablet would be a bad experience. Now the iPad Mini is projected to outsell the iPad Air. He said such tablets would only be useful if they came with sandpaper to file down the human fingers.

 

Also 3.5 inch screen was the perfect size for the iPhone. Now Apple users are already asking for a 5" iPhone.

 

Most of these tablets hit the mark when it comes to hardware. They have good screens and a solid build, they fail because of the OS and UI.

 

Someone that might be interested in a Kindle HDX may want a 16:9 ratio for content. If they want to mostly watch movies then the Kindle might be a better user experience because of the aspect ratio. Same goes for the Surface Pro for someone that needs or wants a full version of Office.

 

It's all based on what someone wants or needs. However with 170 Million units sold it's fairly clear for most people the iPad hits the mark. Android devices fail because of fragmentation and Microsoft fails because Bill Gates stopped caring about the company years ago.

Him. Not you. Because he doesn’t whore himself to the highest bidder. Because he doesn’t troll Apple stories wherever they may be.

 

Why you haven’t been banned yet is beyond me. I’d have done it as soon as I was informed of who you were from C|Net.

He was right. It is.

Not really Apple users. And people tend not to have a clue what they want.

Because this isn't insane hater world. This is a technical forum. I'm an Apple user. I'm not doing anything disruptive. I'm just blocking people that are rude to people like you, and participating in conversations. Now I'm blocking you. Bye bye.

He’s right; you’re a riot. Now get off our website.

Which book in the trilogy is this from? I read all 5 (granted, some more times than the others), but I don't recall this.

Edit: Looks like you improvised there! Nice!!

Guys don't hate on Mr Scott Wilson (in fact don't hate on anyone who has the balls to reveal his real name).  Dude is great for laughs.

In fact I think the guy is like a vampire.  He lives on hate.  He loves hate.  So don't give him hate.  Give him love. 

 

You DA MAN Scott Wilson from small town Buffalo.

Keep making posts, in fact make more!  We need more of your mind blowing posts!  Ever since you started posting here Apple has been making one great decision after the other.  Keeep it uuup!

If by some amazing cosmic coincidence my presense has prompted Apple to continue to do awesome things like make the Mac Pro in the USA, then I will gladly continue to spread my message of love and tech here.

It’s book 5, roundabout the middle.

 

My overall point was to just contrast Apple’s devices (styled after the first guide) and Amazon’s (the second). Apple’s devices are made to be explored and you always know how to get back from wherever you are. Amazon has explicitly put a “PANIC” button on their devices, so its users are going to be psychologically tailored to having a worse experience. They’ll feel different when using it than an iPad user his device, and most of them won’t know why.

false advertising! Air is commonly known as the stuff you breath. it is a gas. the Kindle HDX is a solid thus it is heavier than air!...
they can not qualify their statement because then they would be using a trademark... and they would need permission, or they run the risk of mentioning the competition

Haha! :) But they are talking about Air (iPad, the product) with a capital letter, not "air"...
