I like your lock and home screens, orzornn. Those are pretty wicked. I just have my cats on my mine right now. I might have to change that to something cooler. smile.gif

I'm loving the air video app which allows me access to my entire home video collection (regardless of format). I haven't tried streaming anything across the internetticals, but it works very well on my home network.

Haha thanks. I've enjoyed this iPad since I bought it, use it every day so it was worth the money I spent on it. I might be getting the next iPhone when it comes out if it has a bigger screen.

Yeah, man... I *never ever ever* thought I would become an Apple fanboy. Back in the day when I was in elementary school, we were using the Apple IIe's. (I miss programming in LOGO...) But when I got older and my family finally decided to buy me a computer, I had been converted in the meanwhile to a crazy lust for one of these really wicked new Dell computers. Back when Michael Dell was sending out super slick glossy catalogs filled with techno-porn, I was dreaming hard about what I could manage to afford. When my family bought my PC, though, they didn't let me in on the secret so just as the 486 was about to come out, my parents came home with a 286 in an IBM PS/1 (not a typo) format. But I loved it like my own dirty red headed stepchild (Dos 4.0 and I were tight) and that's when I dedicated myself to PC's. Thereafter I started upgrading components in a couple machines I bought off the shelf, and then about 8 years ago I built my first homebrew PC. My love affair for building my own PC's has never waned. Since that time, we've always had at least two, if not three PC's in our two person (+2 cats) home.

However, a couple years ago I got a free iPod 4G and everything changed. I'd been using a G1 for a while, full of faith in the open source nature of the Android OS, not to mention being able to get apps outside of a locked down ecosystem and play any video I wanted to play without conversion. *chuckle* And THEN I used iOS. "Oh!" I said. "THIS is what a touch device is meant to be like." I didn't pay for the thing, but I suddenly understood why people are willing to go nuts for Apple stuff. We got our 2nd iPad last night, and now we're both talking about iPhones as well. Considering AppleTV but given the size of our non-compliant media database, ehhh... probably gonna go with a boxee box and forego the super-easy integration of the AppleTV. We haven't yet decided. The reality is that using Handbrake to convert video files to H.264 is fairly easy, if time consuming, so we're not yet decided.

Obviously the integration of AppleTV with the other Apple products we are working hard to collect is very hard to beat. And with my iPad, I'm using our PC far less, which means it could definitely be spending time doing Handbrake conversions. Hmmmmmmmmm.

I'm working on a review of the new iPad with comparisons to the original Asus Transformer TF101. Are there any specific areas you guys would like me to compare? I have screen comparisons with closeups of the browser icons, text comparisons with OCN, and physical size comparisons. Then I touch on stability and customization differences between iOS and Android.

Stable Validations:
CPU-Z: 3570K @ 4.6GHz 1.3v, G6950 @ 4.51GHz 1.4v, E8400 @ 4.2GHz 1.4v, X6 1055T @ 3.8GHz 1.475v, X2 550BE 3.75GHz 1.475v
GPU-Z: HD7850 @ 1200/5600, HD6850 @ 900/4400, HD4850 @ 685/2020, HD3850 @ 810/1818

Ben, that's awesome! I think it would be great to do a thorough review of the differences in playing media on each device, the support (or lack thereof) for particular formats, and a technical discussion about the difference in the way each device decodes video/audio, with a particular focus on the impact of GPU vs CPU video decoding on the iPad, when using various apps that enable playback of non-native formats. rolleyes.gif

Done, and welcome to the club. smile.gif Yes, I've had a hard time getting my face out of it lately. My GTX580 is getting rather jealous. I spent more on my video card than I did on the iPad, and yet I'm obsessively playing ridiculously simple games on my iPad. Speaking of, I have some burritos that just finished cooking in Restaurant Story...
