QuoteApple's Tim Cook has made headlines by claiming that he uses an iPad or iPhone 80% of the time instead of a full Mac desktop/laptop.

-I need an iPad

-Wait so retina display is so different that they had to make new versions to support it? Interesting

It's a much higher resolution. The applications can scale, but they won't really take advantage of it.

The resolution issue is one of the reasons analysts are recommending iPad Minis over lower-priced, higher-res Android tablets. Since the iPad mini uses the same resolution as the iPad 2, a ton of apps have been built to support it. Since Android apps are a mixed resolution bag, you get a lot of apps that aren't designed for larger screens/resolutions. They'll stretch to fit, but they won't look nearly as good as if they were natively designed for them.
Interesting. I'd probably get an iPad over an iPad mini

Yeah the new iPads with retina displays are really nice. You can take a magnifying glass to them and you still can't see the pixels around text.

My fiance really wants a mini so she can put it in her purse and read during breaks when she does 12 hour nursing shifts. The big ones definitely won't fit the bill for that. Not sure if that's in the Christmas budget though.
Hm I'd be interested in chatting about iPads with you if you want. Feel free to email me.

Yeah, I was thinking the mini would be nice for women in their purses, for sure.

I want an apple television so bad. I just know its going to be insanely awesome when that day comes
I can add that to the list of technology I want and can't afford

I think I could make my own rocket for $750 Million...when I get it built, anyone who wants can come with me for free.
I laughed really hard
