I'm an android fanboy (love the s3) but have so far not encountered a tablet that beats the iPad, which I love so dearly. It simply has the best display, build, battery life, power, optimized apps and software/hardware support of any tablet on the market.

But yeah, they're fragile, as you pointed out, which is why mine is protected

Is this real?

I mean... My ipad survived drops like that hundreds of times. It got to the point where I would just throw it around pretty much everywhere.

Thanks. I guess they make 'em a bit different these days.

The completely flat drop is by far the worst though, and pretty uncommon. Most of the time they fall on their corners or sides, so that's probably part of it.

They picked probably the worst thing to try for their small sample. That said, my old ipad did survive several such drops with no real problems so they probably do make them different these days... oh well.

I've dropped mine on the hard concrete of my garage a bunch of times, as well as on the patio which is more rough in texture and has pebbles if that matters to you.

I'm not kidding when I said I had a super-indestructo-pad. Idk if I just got lucky, but that thing simply refused to break. It's got a whole bunch of dents and crap in the case though.

I know what you mean, and I've heard it sometimes has to do with the glass, and if you get lucky with it. Me and my brother both have an iphone 4s, and I never use a case, and I've dropped it hundreds of times, and once while i was pulling out of my pocket in a parking lot it literally flew out of my hand and hit the asphalt, and not a crack. Later my brother had it fall out of the car door when he opened it, so that's like 2 feet off the ground, and it cracked right down the middle. And it had a case on it. So yeah, I guess I just got lucky.

Ok... what's with the red thumbs?

Just a question... not saying it isn't real just wondering if I lucked out with a super indestructible one or something...

Maybe it's because mine was a different generation... the casing was a little different...

from a logical point of view, e-book readers are definatly an improvement. You can fit an entire library into your pocket, you don't need to cut down trees for the books, etc. If you think about it, a traditional book is nothing more than a primitive data storing device. Of course there is nothing wrong with reading a traditional book, the same way there is nothing wrong with using a oldschool typewriter instead of a notebook.However, the e-book is a full-fledged technological improvement.

Yes, but I see it as similar to how amazon does its instant videos: no refunds, and subject to change at any time.

In Amazon instant's terms of use policy (read it to see whether or not I could legally upload it somewhere else for others to enjoy for free) it specifically says that all you've bought is the right to watch that video online, and should those who hold copyright decide to withdraw an episode or movie from amazon, then you loose it with no refund.

I'm not sure though if it works like that with the books, but I imagine it does. I'd rather have a hard copy anyway for antiquity's sake (some books are worth pretty large sums now due to being out of print, ect). And you can't take the hard copy from me because like with a DVD, I bought that, it's mine and only if I kill someone with it can you take it away.

What amazon does with the books is: once you buy a book, you can send it to any one of your devices (kindle, andoid device with kindle reader, kindle for pc, etc) and read it from there. You can't (legally) transfer books between devices AFAIK, but you can download it to any of them whenever you want.
I'm not aware if they can remotely delete books from your reader, though it's quite likely. You can, of course, remove the DRM yourself and take it wherever you want and convert it to other formats, etc. and they can't do a thing about it. I believe there is something about them not being able to sue you as long as you don't distribute them, but you'd have to check.
There also are places where you can download books for free (the legal kind of free), which by definition don't have any DRM on them.

Personally I prefer real books. There just isn't anything quite like the feel of the pages or the smell of a musky old book. However, it's hard to carry around thousands of normal books in your pocket. You could download and carry around more books than would fit in your entire house. There's also the remembering where you last read up to, font options for optimising reading (eg if your sight is bad, you can just have large font instead of having to hope that someone has made a large-print version of a book you want). It's incredibly useful.

What of blind people?

Kindle and other companies should really make a newfangled reader for them, and when that happens I'll accept that e-readers are quite impressive, but until then I'll stay traditional. Even with an e-reader I'll probably always keep on hand my own private collection of many years, just in case.

Some readers (like the US kindle, but not the UK one) have a text to speech option. This probably isn't ideal, as I don't think it works in menus, but once they start reading a book they should be fine. I can't imagine braille technology to be particularly hard to implement, but there's probably not enough demand to do so.

For normal books, they'd either have to get someone else to read it out for them or wait for a braille version. Very few books are in braille, usually only popular books or classics. Again, due to a lack of demand.

I agree with you on keeping normal books. You should see my library at home. I frequently like to just sit down in my chair and read for hours on end. If I can, I prefer to get real books, but there's sometimes practicality issues. If I'm going on a 6-week holiday, I'd have to take 30-odd books (I'm an extremely fast reader) and there isn't always room to take that many.

THIS IS EXACTLY WHY A PRE-DEFECATION CHECKLIST IS NECESSARY. Step 1: Make sure you have at least one stall in between another person. Step 2: Make sure door locks properly. Step 3: Check for pee stains. Step 4: Check for TP. Step 5: Beware of the over-sensitive motion sensor. Step 6: Check creakiness of the seat. If all of those are in order, you're ready to go. You're welcome
