    With an iPad?

    Has anyone any ideas? Mine won't play links on here to YouTube,

    I can't post pictures from iPad to here?

    I know how to capture the screen which is brilliant and turn it in to a photo, what can you do?


    Btw, awaiting the sky man to do me fibre optic broadband today can't wait , since I bought Harley his gaming pc for his birthday I can hardly get online :Angry: going from 2mb to 45 estimated :thumb:

    No idea about the ipad as I am an android :Smile:My home system is with Virgin and delivers around 50mb and rising, give it a couple of weeks and you wont even notice the increase in speed until you use a slower system that will totally frustrate you.
    If your son plays on-line gaming he will be well pleased.
    My advice is to speed test your new system regulally and make a nuisance of yourself if it doesn't meet the speed, They changed all my connections and made some remote adjustments before I was happy with the service. I still get lows but not very often. :thumb:

    As I see it the only positives are size, battery live and turn on speed. Compared to a lappy everything else is a negative. Not a lot for all that dosh:Eek!:

    I can't post links either it seems.

    I don't think an iPad can compete with a lap top but it is so quick and easy to use:thumb:

    Screen capture on any iOS device is just press the power button and the home button at the same time.

    Can't posting pictures be done with Copy & Paste, keep you finger on the image until the option appears.

    Most youtube video should play, it's just Flash encoded that's a problem. Interestingly Adobe have given in and will soon stop releasing Flash players for all mobile devices including Android and Windows.

    iPads Rule !!:thumb:

    How odd is that, I've just watched this U tube clip on my iPad in superb hi definition, people keep telling me I can't? Maybe mine is really a zoom with a apple badge, no it can,t be, the quality is too good.

    My son has had an Xoom for a couple of years, great bit of kit but he has now moved on. He now has a wafer thin SSD Ultrabook which he much prefers. The good news is that he is going to pass the Xoom onto me when I visit in September.:thumb:
