    Based on some of the feedback I've been getting on the article, it's not uncommon for two Apple devices (even ones that are the same model) to have slightly different screen hues.

    If it wasn't a side-by-side I wouldn't even have noticed.

    In all fairness to Mybroadband they did say it wasn't a review

    Although it most likely doesn't say iPad 3 as it is not the iPad 3

    +1

    Seems to be some forum discussion around new iPads manufactured in week 1 of production run (apparently there are 10 weeks of production already) and the first batches have a distinct yellow tinge.

    Weird ... but immediately noticeable.

    I have no doubt a review will be forthcoming shotly...

    his is not a review, but rather my first impressions after spending a day or so with MyBroadband’s shiny “new iPad.”

    Bit hard to do a full review on a device that you've had your hands on for less than 24hrs..

    Hey I didn't say there was anything wrong with calling it iFred, if I got a new iPad 3 and it had iFred on it I would know I had at least recieved the correct gift from the MyBB offices

    I think if tablets remained a very niche gadget the Flash issues would be a lot more frequent. The popularity of the iPad has driven websites to be less Flash intensive, one area in particular are Facebook games, I see you get app versions of the big Zynga games something I thought would be destined to stay on the desktop due to it's flash requirement.

    That is true.
    Was just disappointed on the images of the screens.
    The Verge had very detailed comparison screenshots when compared to this.

    I don't expect MyBB to be able to deliver articles on the same level as Arstechnica or The Verge, but proper comparison screenshots should be doable.
    But as you said, maybe that will come in the future

    Are you referring to images like this?



    Our photographer will be trying his hand at this soon, but I'm curious: You can get comparisons like that anywhere now, is there really a purpose in us redoing what others have already done?

    Yep, exactly like that.

    Well, you can generally get reviews and articles about most things elsewhere now. Even with the same angle you might go for.
    So then what is the purpose in any of the non-SA-specific articles you run on MyBB?
    Surely it is to increase site stickyness so that people don't bother going to other sites?

    Yeah wtf, at first I was like okay far enough the complexion of the picture on the left looks way better, but then I realized it was the other way round

    Also wtf is the point of the pictures that are zoomed in a million times so you can see the difference in pixel size. Unless you going to use your ipad glued to your eye, pictures like the one on myBB is way more meaningful and as you can see that the improvement in quality is marginal.
