iPad mini - Page 2

post #16 of 80
I like the reduced size. If I was taking a long trip, I think I would take the new, smaller version. When you are running around from city to city for a few weeks size and weight matters. I think a lot of women, probably millions will see it as purse size and prefer it over a regular size iPad while out and about. There may also be business applications where the smaller size is preferred such as in store POS or for some sales presentation.

This is like Porsche coming out with an SUV years after everyone else to fill a niche that their original lineup didn't cover. It will do well.

Steve Jobs Says 7-Inch Tablets Are ‘Dead on Arrival’

Most of the tablets Steve was talking about as the time were 7 inch with a widescreen aspect ratio. The iPad mini is closer to 8 inches and is 4:3. The difference this makes is far more then people assume.



Having said that, Apple has a history of making these kinds of statements until they are ready to launch what they feel is the right product. Nothing new to see here.

A lot of data will just sync to the devices over iCloud.

With the new iOS, no need to sync anything with a cable anymore, but you can sync the tablet to your laptop just like your iPhone.   Or you can just use the iCloud and be cable free.

Seriously thinking about this one. I sold my iPad firs gen because it was too bulky. Never picked up a new one. So this may be my thing.

n particular, Zdziarski cited particular clauses of iCloud Terms and Conditions that state that Apple can "pre-screen, move, refuse, modify and/or remove Content at any time" if the content is deemed "objectionable" or otherwise in violation of the terms of service. Furthermore, Apple can "access, use, preserve and/or disclose your Account information and Content to law enforcement authorities" whenever required or permitted by law. Apple further says that it will review content reportedly in violation of copyright under DMCA statutes.

Yeh they could discontinue it, for whatever reasons. Just like they did with MobileMe, and .Mac plus iTools before that. Then you got to find somewhere else to store your stuff.

Also things like storing music in the iCloud are only available in a few countries. Where I am iCloud is apps and books only, that's it.

The issue of concern for Harvey thet he brings up is not solely one of iCloud. Any cloud based service has similar wording in their TOS and theoretical ability to be invasive with your data. That goes for Dropbox, Google Drive, Skydrive, etc. These user agreements have become the industry norm.

Taking it a step further, do you think your email is safe? Check out GMails TOS next time you get a chance or Yahoo's. If you want to use online services the you must accept this is out there. I don't like it, but its not going to change anytime soon.

If anything, the real danger is your ISP. How much of your data being sent down their pipes is encrypted? Likely a lot less then anyone would be comfortable thinking about.
