I had to nip into an Apple store last night. This is now the second time Ive played with an iPad mini.
I do not need one
I do NOT need one
I DO NOT need one
I DO NOT NEED ONE
I DO NOT NEED ONE AND I WILL NOT BUY ONE
Ahh crap. Who am I kidding?

I’d tried MX Player Pro – but that doesn’t work, or at least with the settings I’ve tried it doesn’t. It plays back smoothly but in slowmo and drops the sound till the video catches up.
There’s three different decoders in MX Player; S/w, H/w, and H/w+. It defaults to H/w+, and on my device at least it was choppy. Switching to H/w fixed it for me (Jim).
Can the nexus be plugged into an external hard drive ?
Yeah. You need a USB OTG (on the go) cable to allow the two to talk, though. Should set you back less than a fiver.
Ordinarily, USB works in a host/client manner; so for example when you plug a hard disk into a PC, the PC acts as host and so is the ‘clever’ side and tells the disk what to do. The tablet and disk are both ‘client’ devices by default, there’s no host, so the OTG cable tells the devices which side is going to take charge.Posted 5 years agoCougarSubscriberjota180Member
‘Droid still doesn’t feel ready for tablets yet to me. And I really want it to be.
I know what you mean, there’s loads of dev going on and a lot of the apps aren’t optimized for tablets.Posted 5 years ago
I still like it but as with the phones, the constant updates are tiresome. I’ve switched updates off now.nbtMembermackem wrote:
Our lass’ Nexus 7 arrived 2 days ago and it’s very nice. I think I’ll flog my 10″ tablet and e-reader and just get one of them to replace both.
what 10″ tablet and how much? I’ve been looking and at the moment the 7″ tablets look too small but the 10″ tablets are twice the pricePosted 5 years agoMackemMember
It’s a Sony S – I think it’s 32gb, certainly more than 16gb, the maths never add up when you look at the storage specs.Posted 5 years ago
I was originally looking at the kindle fire as I already have a kindle, but as I’ve an android phone and various google accounts and android has a kindle app and amazon app anyway the nexus seems the way to go. I’ll still probably use my kindle to read anyway as the eink doesn’t hurt your eyes.
I can use my phone as a hotspot too if needed seems to do all I want 😉Posted 5 years ago
