Does that mean it won't work or does that mean you just haven't figured out how to do it yet? If it's the former, what iPad version would you need for it to work?

From what I can gather, iOS 7 broke it. Anything before that is fine. Mind you, this is only with XBMC boxes, not with Apple TV. I imagine a fix will be forthcoming.

But they make non-Apple notebook computers which are probably a lot cheaper than what this is going to be. I don't get it.

Thought about the Mini too but I kinda want something larger.

Thanks...
Why would you go with an iPad 2 when you could get a Kindle Fire HDX for the same price? The new Kindle blows away EVERY version of the iPad including the newest iPad Air.

It doesn't make much sense to wait this long and then pull the trigger on the clear loser in the tablet market share space. You looking to replace your cell phone with a new blackberry as well?

^ Except the processor. They're about the same.

I like the Kindle Fire HDX a lot. Do you still have to uninstall Amazon's interface to really use it? I honestly don't know, as I haven't looked at Kindles in a while.

It all stems from a conversation I had with a co-worker...at the time didn't know a lot about tablets and such.

Here the past few days, really have got into it and researched and yeah I wouldn't get an iPad 2...I'm going to get the iPad Air I think.

You realize you are going to pay an extra $100 for an inferior product right? Unless you are completely committed to the Apple ecosystem, it makes little to no sense to buy an iPad air over a Kindle HDX.

I recently switched from a Nexus 7 to a 3rd gen iPad. I upgraded the wife from the original iPad to the 4th gen.

Even though I've been all android for a while now I was sold on the screen dimensions. With all of the other tablets everything seems out of whack. Portrait mode isn't wide enough when reading most sites/apps and landscape mode is awkward in the other direction. 4x3 seems to be ideal for tablets while the iPhone is flat out retarded with regards to phone dimensions.

I've also owned a Kindle Fire. The interface is build for ham fisted mongoloids. I'm not buying something that I have to mod 1 hour after it arrives so that it's usable.

Brother in law just switched and got an iPad Air. He LOVES it.

As previously noted, I'm still using my iPad 2. I love it. I literally use it for 2-3 hours every day (and have for the past 2 years) and the battery life is still strong. I've never had a software or hardware issue.

I imagine you'll love the Air.

You're clearly a moron for paying more for an inferior product.

In all seriousness, after playing around with an AppleTV and now purchasing a Gbox Midnight MX2 to run XBMC, I now understand both camps better. The Gbox can do WAY WAY more than an AppleTV, but it also is subject to repeated crashing and tons of setup and bugfixing (I can't tell you how many hours I've spent tinkering with it, reading message boards, and watching tutorial videos). That's okay, though, because I've enjoyed playing with the toy and spend as much time exploring it as I do actually watching stuff on it. An AppleTV, on the other hand, can't do nearly as much stuff... but it's stable, does what you want, and just works intuitively right out of the box.


I think that dichotomy goes for a lot of Apple vs. competitors.

^Once I've had something for a while I'll usually start hacking it. All of my phones have eventually been CM'd and my current phone is getting to the point where I'm going to want to play with it. Even the recent iPad purchase will eventually go through a jailbreak.

I just don't want to have to mess with it day one. Unless it's free.

I don't know if the HDX has changed things or not but we rid ourselves of the kids' Kindle Fire's due to the lack of apps. Sure, there are hundreds of apps available via the Amazon store but there are hundreds of thousands via Google Play that you cannot download because the Kindle is locked in to Amazon's store and only Amazon's store.
