1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Considering the 2nd best selling tablet platform besides iPad is the Kindle Fire it makes sense. I don't think most Fire owners are buying the devices for something to surf the web. It's mostly about content consumption in Amazon's ecosystem.

    EDIT: Plus that screen and web browser kinda of sucked on the older Fire's. Not sure if they are improved with the new ones to a large extent.

    fuck that 13" w/ retina is really expensive, especially since I'll need more that just the base model

    Ummm, a lot of people but I don't see the need for them at home. A friend of mine has a server in his house though, with TB and TB of data.



    Do you really find the 15" Retina MacBook Pro that big?

    not really, no, but I will absolutely need something that is light and easy to transport. The Air comes to mind first, but the retina display is too awesome to pass up. Unfortunately, that takes you from a 1200-1300 laptop in the Air to a 2200-2500 laptop in with the Pro Retina. Was hoping that a 13" would come along that was smaller and lighter and cheaper (1500-1600ish), but $1700 and with only 128 gb flash storage has me thinking meeehhh.

    iPad mini is exactly what was expected. Thin, light and non-retina. Thing temps the hell out of me for the sake of single handed operation, but I don't think I could go back after using Retina so long.

    Disappointed at the price points. Really expected them to hit $249 for the base. By having the pricing start at $329, they are giving a big advantage to the competition. It's a mistake on Apple's part to do so.

    I'm open to considering the 13 inch Air, but need to be able to drive two external monitors at once for work. Only the Pro models can do this.
