and the weight is a non issue. It actually weighs less than the ipad 4 did "back in the day", albeit stretched out into a larger format.
That's hard to believe as every review I've read describes it as "only a little heavier than the original ipad".

Picked up my Pro today.  Haven't done anything with it yet but it just seems incredibly huge.  I mean I know it really isn't that big (And it's surprisingly light even in the box) but it just looks like a weird oversized iPad lol.  

Annoyed that the Pencil and Keyboard weren't available for pickup, what the f is up with that?
Something that would never have happened with Steve Jobs at the helm.

Is there any way I can fix that? I can't access OO over wifi at all.

For some reason when I use wifi on my phone I can't access it but when I turn off wifi and use the mobile data I can (not in this case, but normally). Any idea why that would be?

If they go high end in hardware this thing is DOA. Nintendo will be fools if they try to go head to head with MS and Sony. It's a waste of time. They need the affordable second system that can play their 1st party games which don't need Cryengine graphics to be enjoyable.

They already made that console.  It's called the WiiU.  icon_razz

That's exactly right.  It didn't work.  They need to compete at this point.  If only to get third party titles back on Nintendo systems.  That's killing them, probably more than anything.

But that's what has always killed them. At least back to the Gamecube, if not the N64. What are they going to do differently this time?

My problem is the limits in customizing. Say for example I want an i7, but I want to keep the cost down and go for 128GB of RAM. Can't do it. Or maybe I want to stick with the M3 but I want a lot of memory to go with it. Can't do it.
10  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Re: Microsoft Surface 4 and Surface Book on: October 09, 2015, 12:30:11 PM
I'm excited for both. But the Book is out of my price range and I probably don't really NEED a detachable tablet. So maybe I'll get the new iteration of the Dell XPS13.

I don't see the ipad pro being successful among general consumers. Yeah, yeah, naysayers have said that about every apple product. But $800 for the most basic version without the keyboard or stylus?
I for one find my ipad air too big as it is. I'm sure a few people will buy it to read their comics and some artists will find use for it but I don't see this as solving Apple's decreasing ipad sales problem.

Sigh.   It was actually more even (head to head) with me making it to 6 and you being in the teens (on the ladder) I could actually give two shits about that (focus on 2 shits, because that's a theme about my feelings regarding GT).

This is a sad liberal, left leaning, heavy handed pig sty that I'm ready to be banned from.  In some ways Ron should actually thank me as my banned/moved threads have as many views as any.

Poking the pigs is how I honestly have thought of it the past 3 years. 

You delusional fools.  You'll have conversations with your grandkids discussing what the hell happened to our Country, maybe still not realizing you lead to the fall. 

Ignorance at it's sad best.  Anyone that thinks Obama has been anything but a failure is an absolute brain dead chimp (not racist you PC idiots).    Not even a democrat vs republican thing at all, a good vs ignorant evil thing.  I'd not hire this piss-ant fool of a president to do anything, much less run the most powerful country on earth.   This tool only order flags to be taken to half staff today, yet posted a rainbow whitehouse  immediately.  The chickens have and will continue to come home to roost (quote from your President's "Pastor", which you all likely forgot, as you ignored it when you voted for this lunatic).

Good Night  to the wonderful desolate, desert GT.

Good times were had here, but that time is over.

Best final post ever.

Life has definitely caught up with me.  Marriage, kids, etc. Plus my forum viewing is a little more diversified these days. I think the key is attracting the new blood rather than trying to keep the old cynics around. If the forums are fresh then the old guys will stick around anyways. Perhaps these days though young people have other outlets.

How is this R&P?  It's a post about a serial douche bag, that is neither religious or political. 

Naednek wil be here with his iron fist eventually I'm sure, even though there is nothing r and p about it.

My friend Kvothe is allowed in there and he told me there hasn't been a new post there in over a month.

You're friend Kvothe?  Dude quit lying, I already proved it was you and banned your alt.  And considering you were given your final warning and on your last straw, trying to flaunt that isn't the smartest way about doing things.
How did you prove it was him? Was it the fact he signed his posts with "Eco"  or was the more a little more strenuous detective work involved? smile

Give your money to someone who knows what they're doing. That's what I do. The trick is to start early and play the long game. It's not seem but it works. Of course the secret is to start as early as possible (like 20) because that last doubling period (every 10 years at 7% with the rule of 72) is when your money goes from a decent amount to an outrageous amount.

You Tubers (the big ones anyways) should get together and form some kind of association / union which would give them a bit more force to protect themselves. You get a few people boycotting and that's not going to stop anyone. But a united group of the top 500 let's players? That might give them pause.

The Football Manager guys have resurrected their Eastside Hockey Manager series.
If you like hockey or you don't but enjoy playing FM then I would recommend picking this up. It's currently Early Access so it only costs about $11 until April 9th!
I don't know when I'll ever get around to playing it but I wanted to vote with my wallet for more hockey manager sims. No licenses but it sounds like you can already sideload the data if you want.

Don't forget when the iPad was announced there were a ton of detractors.  Many many people, reviewers and regular folk alike, were all generally pretty negative, or at best, they "didn't get it."  I saw all the same arguments: it would be obsolete in a year, there wasn't a "need" for it, it was too expensive, etc etc.  And look at how it fared regardless.  

Granted you might argue this is a very different animal since it's entering a market that pre-exists.  But then again, I could argue that was the same with the original iPhone.  Like them or hate them, Apple knows what they are doing.  More importantly, they are willing and able to adapt to user feedback, and continue to improve their products on all fronts, software/OS, apps and hardware.  

My prediction: they will sell like hotcakes and there will be no stock available for the first few months. You'll see famous stars wearing the gold ones on TV and movies.  By Christmas it will be the hot ticket item.  

P.S.  My heartbeat is coming for you, Lee!!!
I would never bet against apple but I am skeptical. I was wrong about the ipad but the ipad really did something new and had no real competition. Android watches have a huge headstart and so far the Apple watch doesn't seem to do anything special that the Android watches don't. The fact that a iphone is required means that a huge swath of the population won't be able to buy one even if they wanted to.
Obviously it isn't going to fail. But I don't see it selling like hotcakes (is there a definable number for that?) and I wouldn't touch the first gen with a 10 foot pole.
