    Ok, so I want one, I thought, the way to get one would be get one for Nikki as she has a birthday the same day as that other funster Jesus Christ himself.:BigGrin:

    I can only afford the 16gb one and no point with the 3g one as I have MIFI.

    The thing is I cant get her to understand why she should want one and alas need one!!!

    any help would be much appreciated.

    Reasons why Nikki should get an Ipad.:thumb:

    ipad

    Get one because they are one fantastic bit of kit, forget a kindle, get the ipad which will act as a kindle, a full on pc, a camera, note pad, route master, diary, games console, music machine etc etc etc.:thumb:

    If you`ve been a good boy Santa might bring you one.....:Wink:

    Go for it... you know you`re worth it...:BigGrin:

    IPAD stands for ( I Promise A Diamond ) well it doesn't but you could say there is one being given away in a ipad competition.:thumb:

    Hi Paul

    I think the ipad is a great piece of kit, as is the iphone

    Only one problem, well 2 actually


    1) When and as soon as they release the new generation you will find that you then want the new version. I have the ipad one but desperately want the ipad 2.


    2) ipad does not support Flash

    Same with phones just sold my old iphone 3gs and my old iphone 4 on ebay and purchased the iphone 4S from ebay.
    but

    very soon none of the tablets will support Flash, or so I am told.

    Take her into PC world or Comet or Curry's and show her one.
    On seeing the cute little ipads, she will definately want one.

    iPads are great.

    If you have an iPhone though you won't use it for anything but phone calls once you get the iPad.

    That's my experience anyway.

    I thought it was going the other way with Android from v2.2 onwards. From what I've read there's been a few teething problems keeping OS changes in sync with Flash versions but they seem to be managing on the whole.

    Anyway, back to the plot.

    Paul, you know in your heart of hearts that Nikki wants chocolates and champagne, not an iPad.

    But - there is a solution for you.

    Remove the cellophane from the box of chocolates carefully, turn the empty box inside out so the white side shows and then stick the cellophane over it and it will look just like an iPad. With the money you save you'll also be able to afford a small torch - so you can have Flash on it as well :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    It might not be such a good idea Paul.

    I bought woman one and she never puts the damned thing.. She is obsessed with card games and Sudoku

    Adobe announced last month that they would not be continuing the development of the mobile version of Flash after v11.1, after Microsoft joined Apple in no longer supporting it on the next mobile version of Windows (BBC article).

    Paul - if you do get the iPad 2, you know what you must not do for the next 6 months....read any tech. press. :BigGrin:

    You should have taken the plunge on November 25 (black Friday) - Apple and its approved re-sellers had a 'for one day only' reduction on all Ipad2's.
    e.g. - 16Gb WifI 3G reduced from £499 to £468 with free delivery.
    All other models reduced pro rata.
    If you bought one from Tesco same day, same deal plus loadsa club card points as well for chunnel crossing:thumb:

    Nikki I was against the Ipad, John has one... touch to enlarge screen same with making the screen smaller, they have updated the Ipad 1 to virtually the same as the Ipad 2 which I now have and love it, its a bit like the microwave cant do without it lolol

    With the latest update I am not aware of much diff between the Ipad 1 n 2

    I can play a limited amt of flash on my Ipad 2 ...
    My lovely laptop an Acer I havent touch since I had the ipad2 nor my Asus EEe 900 :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    I'm getting one, harped on and on to my wife and suddenly she agreed. Then I couldn't make my mind up between the Samsung or the pad, As I've got an Itunes account already for my touch that swung it to the iPad, now I've read all the splurge about the launch of the iPad3 I'm waiting for that, I'm in no rush so I believe the 3 will be launched at a similar price and if not the 2 will be reduced to clear the stock. :RollEyes:

    Your not wrong there

    Mrs t wouldn't let me use hers
    So I bought a 3G 16 gig on black Friday
    reduced price £468 every little helps

    Have a look at their refurbished list
    as apple have a thirty day exchange
    May help you

    Trimmed a giffgaff sim down £ 7.50 a gig
    works a treat all my posting and interwebing Done on 3G since
    just to try it out as we have occasion to have the phone lines stolen
    It's easier than a dongle and unlocked from the apple shop
    its every bit as good as my 3GS I phone
    (I hasten to add nearly 3yrs old see no reason to change it)

    I think you need a reason not to buy one
    It was cost that stopped previously

    You can get sim trimmers on eBay for £2.59 ish if you need

    Flash?? Apple haven't supported that ever if memory serves. Not being an apple or a flash fan I couldn't possibly comment. Flash is not installed on my puter.

    HTML5 is on the up now anyway :Wink:
