I have an iPad
Used extensively for:
* Monitoring the IP cameras
* Doodling art
* Reading e-books
* Watching movies
* Keeping up with art sites
* Logging into routers to change passwords/settings
* Fault-finding on wireless networks
* Banking when not at home
* In-flight entertainment
The problem unless you jailbreak it, installing some apps is impossible, having every thing tied to the itune store is a mission too, while it applies to google store as well to some extend.I rarely use the playstore, I can get all I need and side load without needing to edit or change the main operating system.
What is funny, my brother has an ipad as well as his kids, he also has an iMac desktop.But has since moved over to android, with an nvidia shield box, and swear high and low, that this is basically the best media box ever created.
Far less issues for him then with apple, while he still uses his ipads, it doesn't impact his media ecosystem all that much, he would much rather use the shield or the chrome cast.
Well, I actually don't. I actually won one in a competion which the wife claimed, then the kids have one each but I am tired of the effort sorting them out all the time, account locks, forget passwords etc. I am going to get them all a Samsung A1/6 (Can't recall the model) as at least it is something I can understand. I do own a macbook but it remains in its box, used exactly once, so if anyone is looking for one, let me know, we can make a deal.
iPad 1 16GB, used for showing movies in the car when going on holidays. Absolutely useless for anything else.
iPad 2 16GB, used for a bit of kiddie activities
iPad mini 32 GB, used for Showmax and Plex streaming
They're honestly too old for anything else these days. Most websites you load on them crash.
I had one. It was the very first thing I ever won on Mybroadband. Unfortunately, an affirmative shopper who decided that my house was open for business while I was out decided that he'd relieve me of it...
