Makes sense. Talked to a guy a while back that planned on using his as a textbook replacement (via some JB app). I totally would have bought on back in grad school for the same reason.

I think that is a small subset of their sales. Unless you are trying to tell me all those iphone and ipad users all eat sleep and breath apple. I think all of those people just see a superior product.

If you charge money...literally any money for anything at any price you are going to alienate some people.

If 20% of your customers are not bitching about the price it isn't high enough.

Aside from that lower end price point customers are more of a pain to deal with customer service wise. Bargain hunters bitch and nitpick and cost money to deal with.

So very very true......if you charge 10 cents for something, there will be people who come along and say: "Why cant i get it for 5 cents?"

Just my opinion of course but as long as it is a completely closed system it is not a superior product. None of these tablets are worth $500 though. android included.

All the money in Apple's bank account disagree. It a product line for you...no biggie.

But that doesn't mean they are doing anything wrong with their pricing points.

Okay, I have an issue that you 'applets' can help me with.

I purchased am 8 month old iPad. When I try to update it, it asks for the previous owners password.

Do I have to reformat completely or is there a workaround?

You can log the previous owner out of the App Store, so that you can purchase and install apps with your iTunes account.



But.... if you want the password prompt to go away for good, you'll have to reformat it or else delete the apps that were downloaded by the previous user. If you leave apps on the device that were installed with someone else's iTunes account, it will forever prompt you for that previous user's account password in attempts to update the apps purchased by the other user. It won't matter what account you're signed into the App Store with, if there's apps from another account, it will prompt you when there's an update for the app.

Okay Fish, sounds like it's best to just reformat the thing. Is that just resetting it to factory specs on that same page you posted?

Yup. Settings\General\Reset

Keep in mind that after you do a full reset, you'll need to connect it to iTunes to get it to boot up again. That confuses the hell out of some people... They reset it, and go to turn it on, and it won't boot right up. Black screen until you connect it to iTunes.

If you're doing that, it would probably be a good opportunity to upgrade it to the latest firmware directly after you reset it. That will get you as up to date as possible. Upgrading to a new firmware will delete everything off of it as well, so do it when there's nothing on it. When you connect to iTunes after reset, it will tell you if there's new software available for it.

If you have any other questions, post em up.
