- And closing the app you are currently using is even more tedious since it won't show in the taskbar. You have to first go back to the Home screen, then double-click, scroll through the open apps, press and hold, and click the x. Not exactly intuitive. So many of my users forget about the multi-tasking, even though we show it to them. They just go to Home and launch it again and leave everything open in the bg... until they complain that it's not working and I show them again that they have 2 dozen apps open...
I've said it before, I don't believe tbat iPad won the tablet wars based on comparison, it was marketing.
If you're going to bash something, get your facts straight and bash it for the right reasons. Lack of ram/virtual memory, and the way attachments are handled when sending emails are two legitimate gripes. You lose all credibility when you post blatant lies.
Nano. I have a first and third gen Nano. They are small and light weight. They survive drops. The FM tuner on the latest models are exceptional. (Wife has one. She had tried three other radios in her office, none of them worked. Nano does. ) Mine goes into the center console of the car and interfaces with the stereo. I still have access to my phone. I also use it when working to listen to podcast with a single earbud.
I've known two people with the classic. They like to take everything with them. However, it's a hassle trying to navigate through that much content. Classics are also guaranteed to break if you drop them.
I finally went from five to four phones on my plan. Four phones with data plans isn't cheap. If you're on my plan and want data, get a job and get your own plan. (Which is why I am done to four )01-03-12 01:46 PM
- ChrisySeeker of the WayMy mom and I both went half in to buy my dad an iPad 2 yesterday. 32GB wifi+3G in black.
It is a really nice piece of hardware and it synced easily to his phone! Was easy to set up.
It did make me decide to get a PlayBook though. I just like the PlayBook OS a lot more, the bezel gestures and the size.
Also, he had to add a $25/month data plan. I like that the PB doesn't require that extra fee.01-03-12 01:47 PM

- You're not scrolling through open apps, you are scrolling through app history. Yes one or two might be suspended, but apps are closed as memory is needed. (Some, like Pandora, might even still be playing audio.) Open Angry Birds, click the home button, open mail. Click the home button, then click AB icon. It resumes from where it left off. No need to double click. Now if you were to open the web browser, and open several tabs, when you returned to AB, you would see that the OS had totally closed it, no matter where you started it from.

- No "blatant lies" just my experience and possibly some arguments over semantics. If you're saying that the apps in the "multi-tasking bar" are not multi-tasking, but merely showing a history of apps, then it defies its own name and doesn't make much sense, to me. And the fact that I had 3 people ask me at the same event about not getting email and after taking their iPhones and doing NOTHING except closing all the apps in the "multi-tasking bar" they suddenly started receiving email, must've been a coincidence even though I've seen it happen other times too? Either the phone wasn't doing what you claim it is supposed to or ???01-03-12 03:32 PM
