Maybe It Should Be Called The Liepad?

Recommended Posts

By no means the first time the Apple Marketing Corporation have over-egged it! Anyone else would have been brought to book in no time, but... we are so big and rich (and have so many over-rich air-heads in tow) that we can ignore normal advertising standards. :(

Anyway, tablets are crashing in price now through sheer oversupply, so Joe Average is going to be spoiled for choice. Just been looking at a Android ICS one with HDMI output, 8GB Flash and 1GB RAM for £85 post free - and it has a microSD slot, and a swappable battery! At 7" it's just about pocketable too; which, to me, seems to be the whole point of a tablet.

Got a samsung galaxy tab at work to play with in a couple of weeks time. I still don't see the point of them in my life. Laptop for mobile purposes or desktop for everything else....when the office isn't too cold that is :glare:

A few weeks back I had a shiny new Samsung Galaxy Note! But "teacher" confiscated it for her own use! :D Funny the people who laugh at the size of the Note - assuming it's very uncool phone - then shorty afterwards are seen sporting one themselves - as a hot Tab!

My current companion out walking is a Motorola Milestone 2 (because I like real keyboards, and it was a bargain at £165) with a cheapo Chinese fat-boy battery compartment clagged on the back. Great for Internet Radio, Skype etc.

Apple drops '4G' from iPad adverts :fish:

Next retreat to reality will be the launch of a much smaller tab (or much larger phone)! Could take a while though - which is what the competition is hoping. :)

      Northumberland's public health chief has urged residents to follow the new North East lockdown restrictions with coronavirus 'spreading like wildfire' across the county.
      The tougher rules will come into force from midnight on Wednesday, affecting about two million people across Newcastle, Northumberland, Gateshead, North Tyneside, South Tyneside, Sunderland and County Durham, in a bid to stop the soaring number of Covid-19 cases.
      The new measures will mean that people from different households will be banned under law from mixing indoors in any setting, including pubs or restaurants, and will face fines of up to £6,400 for doing so.
      However, it will not be illegal to meet up with friends from another household in a beer garden – though it will be against public health advice to do so.
      Latest figures revealed all seven authority areas in the region have recorded an increase with cases up 79% to 2998 in the week leading to September 25 from 1324 in the previous seven days.
      The number of Covid-19 cases in Northumberland more than doubled to 450 in the same week – the equivalent of 139.6 cases per 100,000 people. This is up from 196 cases (60.8) in the week previous.
