Re: Can┬┤t decide wich tablet to buy?!?

Kind of ironic coming from a cheapskate dickhead who spends 20 hours online, isn't it? :lol: Yes, but I don't spend the 20 hours online being an Apple-Rentboy, unlike you, my friend :D If that's the best you can do, then those 4 hours of sleep have been wasted. And I'm not your friend, chum. Seriou...

Re: Can┬┤t decide wich tablet to buy?!?

To me and my existence?, an Apple, or an Archos is hardly life, or death. To you?.... Well, anybody reading any of your bitter drivel, and the linguistically-challenged defences you use, can quickly determine that you are some kind of technic-wannabe 'nerd', with little else going on in life. Kind ...

Re: Can┬┤t decide wich tablet to buy?!?

I find it difficult to believe that someone apparently so well versed in business can display such an abysmal lack of intellect and grasp of basic knowledge in that key area. That and the need to brag about it tells me how insecure you are and the distinct probability that you are a fantasist. If yo...

Re: Can┬┤t decide wich tablet to buy?!?

It's quite amusing watching the people with the ipads, and the archos101 spout 'which is better' Yes, it is rather since it is quite a one sided argument and ultimately futile. I had heard about the ipad when it launched, and thought 'cool, I Could do with one of those'. I remember steve jobs menti...

Re: Can┬┤t decide wich tablet to buy?!?

I really love the Apple fanboys. Why is it that you state things as IMO but then say that anyone holding a different opinion "needs their head examined." Apple is a horrible company and their devices are way too restricted. IMO Truly, this is my opinion. I know that there are people who like the Ap...

Re: Can┬┤t decide wich tablet to buy?!?

Just what precisely do you need to change on it that necessitates hooking it up to a PC? There is nothing I need to change that I cannot do via the Settings menu. The only thing I can think of is backing up and firmware updates. I can live with that. Which bring me to onto your next gripe with the i...

Re: Can┬┤t decide wich tablet to buy?!?

It does address the issue. You are saying 'the iPad can't do such-and-such' but actually it can. Transferring files through the installation of a single app is not a burden and does not reflect on iOs since the functionality can be added. It's like saying Windows is crap because it can't receive ema...

Do what most iPad users do and install Dropbox or Tonido to share files. It's as painless and one-step as you can get.

Re: Can┬┤t decide wich tablet to buy?!?

I don't know if budget is a concern, but the 101 is nearly half the price of the lowest end ipad. I use my 101 every day (for comics and surfing mostly) and love it. Also, remember Gen 9 is suppose to come out in a few months. Gen 1 iPads 16GB can be had for more or less the same price as a 101. Pr...

Re: Can┬┤t decide wich tablet to buy?!?

Buy an iPad. It is the yardstick by which all Tablets are judged and for good reason. I wouldn't touch another Archos with someone else's ten foot pole.

Re: USB Host Port not working with new FW

I bought my 101's from Insight Direct who have been great in picking up the faulty units at their own cost and replacing them. This last time I asked for and received a refund. Had they not been so forthcoming, I would have got a chargeback via Visa but this was unnecessary. Having bought an iPad I ...

Re: USB Host Port not working with new FW

My third unit gave up the ghost a couple of weeks ago. I have officially had it with Archos, or as I call them "That useless shower of garlic munching goons from across the Channel". Mine has been sent back for a refund. I went and bought an iPad instead. Wish I had done it earlier. In this game, yo...

Re: USB Host Port not working with new FW

As I stated already, I had nothing plugged in my usb while inserting the PSU. I had nothing plugged in my unit for about a week and my USB died. Maybe it felt lonely and missed having something plugged in. Then either something else caused your failure or you are misremembering something. One excep...

Re: USB Host Port not working with new FW

An engineer friend of mine tells me it is not software related but probably to do with a current spike frying the USB port when the device is also reading the SD card at the same time. The PSU is probably the culprit, he thinks. Just received my 4th 101 today. I'm really nervous about this as I hav...

Re: USB Host Port not working with new FW

I've just been told it may be possible to have the host and slave ports on the 101 connected to a single controller that switches into host/slave mode depending on what is plugged into it first. Without a physical examination of the 101 board, it can't be confirmed. Anyone have a pic of the 101 boar...

Re: USB Host Port not working with new FW

The A70 and the A101 USB issues are different. The A101 has, as Allen noted, a dedicated full size USB host-only port and a dedicated micro-USB slave port. The failures on the 101 have all been on the full sized USB HOST port. The micro-USB slave port continues to work fine on the 101's. It has to ...

How is that possible?
Could it be because they are two separate ports on the A101 and the A101 has a full USB A female host port?
