What irritates you about the iPad (Mini, ESP.)

The horrid little keyboard.

Your turn.

I want a nuclear powered iPad so I don't have to pay attention to some stupid battery.

That you can only copy off of a page once. Meaning if I copy a post on DL in order to quote it in a reply, I can't copy from any other posts on that page. Or if I copy from an online article and accidentally leave part of the page out, I can't go back and copy the rest of the page.

It's a very easy fit but not very absorbent.

Yesterday's technology at tomorrow's prices.

The fact that iPads requires an account with Apple to use. It's not like you need any kind of account with Microsoft to use their machines.

I also have a Kindle Fire, and the Amazon account requirement makes sense there, since it's an Amazon product and they want you to buy their content on it.

So when I got my iPad, I was turned off by it the very moment I first began to set it up.

Another thing I don't like about it is the browser - I hate being forced to see the ads, as I use Adblock Plus and Ghostery with Firefox on my PC. And I don't like that the back and forward buttons on the browser are at the top. They should be at the bottom, as they are with the Fire's browser.

The price. Apple really blew it with the 329 price point on the mini. With the non-Retina display it's not worth it.

Touch keyboards annoy me. Physical keyboards let me use feel while I'm looking at the screen.

Predictive text doesn't let me say 'cunt', 'fucko', or 'cumbucket'.

The glass gets gross and I have to clean it every day.

I'm also tired of sticking things in to other things in order to charge them. I have a Lumia that sits on a stand to charge. I want that for my iPad and macbook air.

Also, the stands are worthless for watching porn in bed. You have to build a little pillow fort to prop up your iPad for handless viewing.

R6--You can use Chrome or Firefox on iPads.

Touchscreens and my fingers don't seem to get along.

Cheryl at R3, once again hits it out of the park! I love me some Cheryl, and I think she is the darlin' of DataLounge.

Of course, she's still a cunt, but that's not her fault.

I don't have one of those contraptions. I don't need one, don't want one. My money is in the stock market, and I use an old Magnavox computer with 258mgs of RAM

The backlight is too damn bright when I use it in the dark, even when it's on the lowest setting. There's a way to dim it in iBooks but not while surfing the web, etc.
