Re: ipad 2 is here

That may have been a heavy wire :D I can see where tethered wired might have made it difficult to hold.

Re: ipad 2 is here

I played with an iPad 2 in a local store yesterday - was horrified at how heavy and unwieldy it is... This surprised me because it is lighter than the iPad 1 and yet the iPad 1 didn't seem so ungainly to me... As usual, I was completely unimpressed by iOS. It's "OK" on the iPod Touch but annoys me ...

Re: Archos 101 VS Ipad

I agree with Allen's post except for the final results. I had a 101 for two months and finally grew tired of it crashing every time I handed it to someone plus the lack of apps that would run. Also the ability to use it as an ebook is hampered by the very poor viewing angles. As a result I have read...

Re: Bought my wife an iPad - here are my thoughts

I've also noticed the superior videos. I think Android will catch up, but right now Ipad has such a lead and sites are tailored just for the Ipad. Only wish the 101 was as good so i could have saved $300 :(

Re: Bought my wife an iPad - here are my thoughts

I didn't see the multitasking issue that you saw. I found when i went from one app to another the state was the same. Having owned the Archos 101 for more than two months I finally gave up on it and waited for the Ipad 2. The only thing I wish the Ipad did have was the micro sd card slot. The other ...

Re: ipad 2 is here

Hey this is just my feelings after using a 101 and now an Ipad. In my personal use, he Ipad is light years ahead. yes it is more expensive, but I feel that it is worth the extra cost. All I know is more responsive, don't have to tilt the screen to get decent viewing angles etc. Not one lock up since...

Re: ipad 2 is here

As I said there will be cheaper tablets, but the Ipad experience is just light years ahead of what is outthere right now. Definitely you need to look at the sum of the parts.

Re: ipad 2 is here

I tried and I tried, but finally sold my Archos 101. It stuttered, it locked up, it lost email settings. Everytime I showed it to people it locked up. The screen was terrible. :( I picked up a 32GB WiFi Ipad 2 yesterday. The first time use was overwhelming. It was like going from a Yugo to a Mercede...

Only issue Ihad with 2.1 is no scrabble game. Installed to 2.2 and added flash plug in but Scrabble still doesn't work. Not sure if I gotthe flash settings wrong.

Re: Owner Reviews - A101

Received my A101 8 GB yesterday. 1. Good build quality - better than I expected 2. No screen calibration needed 3. Wifi is fast; fast web browsing 4. Screen could be better, but is acceptable and better than I expected 5. Have played with the IPAD just a little at a store. Seems to me that the IPAD ...

Re: Archos Orders placed 11/18, Tracking Number Anyone?

In the UPS system. Ordered ground on 11/18. Unfortunately because of Friday being a holiday for UPS, I will probably get it on Monday which is 3 biz days. Sucks, because if they had shipped it on Friday, I would had it on Weds.

Re: Bye bye, Archos

I have to laugh at all the whiners who complain because the product is late. I see this happen with every new high tech product as people scramble to get the first one. You all expect a step function instant ramp output. Teh onl way that can happen is if they stockpile inventory. Also how many of yo...
