Bit the bullet and got me an apple ipad mini 2...
« on: August 11, 2015, 11:55:45 AM »
So last weekend, swung by the apple store here to purchase my very first apple product..an I Pad mini 2, 32gb... did a some research in the morning..and decided on the Mini 2 versus the mini 3 ... hehe also got a Lightning- VGA connector (WHICH IS F*CKING EXPENSIVE) and a nice rugged Case (which I regret, kasi like the COnnector ridiculously overpriced--but pleased with the look and quality so its ok..)

I got it mainly for professional and businesswork related suff as part of my personal tech upgrading... like the nice KEYNOTE presentation App which has stunning effects..hehe.. still learning the ins and outs of this thing..but its seems the apple experience is pretty good... the guys at the apple store helped me upgrade the ios and set up my accounts..everything was streamlined... interesting experience.. (I couldve saved a bit buying at electronic markets but wanted to try that apple store experience)

so, I guess Im part of the club now,  .. will try the projector connector later at the office conference room..hehe

iSheep ako but I'm happy!  :lol: dalawa lang namimiss ko sa Droid: bluetooth transfer tsaka memory card expansion.

Apps wise, sulit ako sa Apple, especially when it comes to music apps (by music apps I mean software instruments). Walang tatalo sa CoreAudio and CoreMIDI functions nya, plus the best made apps walang lag. Meron nga akong DAW sa iPad ko sa bahay eh (Hokusai). I also have iMaschine and DM-1 on my iPhone sobrang sulit.

For "office"stuff, the standard Google Drive, QuickOffice (not really a fan of the iWork suite), Documents by Readdle, Evernote, Haiku (powerpoint), Paper by 53, and this really amazing thing called Microsoft Office Lens. I also find that Apple has a really good voice to text engine (pinalitan na yata nila yung Nuance/Dragon Dictate engine), and much better than Google's and Windows', so pag nagusulat ng memo or writeup sasabihin mo na lang basta straight english  :lol:

for productivity work, definitely get a protective screen, yung matte. di kayo magkakakitaan ng client mo pag glossy screen baka masilaw mo pa sya  :lol:

check out Haiku though, sulit ako sa kanya nung ginagamit ko pa  :)

I really hate that lack of bluetooth file transfer option. Napaka-inconvenient. Sa SD card issue naman, ganun na rin ang direction ng lecheng Samsung. If not for maximizing the value of my plan, I would've gotten a different unit na may SD. S6 kasi, wala na ring SD card and hindi na rin napapalitan ang battery. Same thing with the coming Note 5.

si Samsung naman nakikiride eh, para makapiga lang ng pera. may dahilan yung iPhone kung bakit walang SD card option,para hindi mapirata yung mga iTunes tracks na nappurchase through the phone. eh si samsung naman Android lang din yan eh so nanghasel lang sila ng customers  <_<

Apple speak? Nakalimutan mo ang icloud at i-freaking message(sobrang gamit sakin) and facetime haha.

Anyways about dun sa battery na lumulobo dahil sa overcharging(from the other thread), alam ko di yun totoo kasi batteries used nowadays eh kaya ng kontrolin ang charge, so kung max na di na siya maoovercharge(nabasa ko from apple website forums)

Alam ko din di na delikado yung "hindi pag full charge" ngayon pwede na bunutin kung kailangan at resume chaging nalang pag may time na. Di ako sigurado dito, can someone confirm? :-D


Ang ayoko lang sa apple eh tahasan nilang kinopya ang spotify and pwersado kang idownload yung version nila, tatanggalin na din daw spotify sa appstore, no more taylor swift lol(ok lang still using ipod classic for my music)

Anyways congrats on that mini.

It's true na hindi kailangang ma-full charge and myth yung over charging. May fault tolerance ang mga battery ngayon.

"Competition"  :lol: eh ang ginawa lang naman nila i-acquire yung Beats brand para mapasakanila ang Beats Music division, tapos gamit yung tech nila ginawa nila yung Apple Music.

Wala naman akong problema kung pwersado na download yung Apple Music dahil part naman sya ng iTunes at stock app naman sya, pero ang badtrip lang nagiging super bloated na ng iTunes kaya ang gulo na wala nang sense of order.

I doubt tatanggalin nila ang Spotify sa App Store, bawal yun dahil wala syang naviviolate na protocol ng App Store Guidelines  :lol:

Yang Taylor Swift na yan ewan ko sa kanya pera lang ang pinaglalaban nya.  <_<

Hahaha naalala ko yung "college humor" bit tungkol dito, ginaya nila daw spotify kasi "f..k you, were apple"! Haha

Infairness with taylor swift binasa ko yung reasons niya, fair naman, sabi niya kumita na siya at narating na niya yung gusto niya, shes making a stand now for new aspiring artists and producers. If she genuinely meant that or pera parin, ok lang cute parin sya. Hahah

well yeah cute pa rin sya  :lol: pero yun talaga, why boycott the channel that is the easiest to get into? if you wanna get "out there" you don't think of the money. Yes, maliit nga ang bayad per play sa Spotify and other streaming services, but Spotify and other streaming services are also focused on playlists and not albums, so a lot of your plays will be "passive" kinda like on the radio, so not every listen that is being paid to the artist is done by someone who actually wants to listen to them. And guess what, playlists are always on loop and on shuffle and shared, so really, you're banking on volume and getting it out there than actually selling records on streaming services.

On Apple Music's 3 month free trial, yeah I agree with Taylor, dapat bayaran nila yung artists. For a company who has more cash than the cash reserve of a country, it's not much to dish out.  :eek:
