Are FSG paying for it?  ;)

We've calculated it will increase my productivity on fan forums by 17.7%.

However we will be increasing ticket prices by £0.50 each to pay for it.

I'd of thought so.

I mean I suppose some may want a larger screen for just browsing and that but would probably be a little overkill for a tablet.

Don't understand the approach behind the Ipad Pro. Nor the idea behind the pen. With the Ipad mini, I understand. Smaller, easier to take it with you, fairly big screen. The Pro has a laptop sized screen. Then they keyboard. You could buy a regular bluetooth keyboard and they decided to go for something similar to Microsoft's Surface.
The pen brings everything back to Palm Pilot. Granted I've not tried it, but I tried the alternative early on because I thought I'd want to write on the screen in a 'normal' way. It was used for an hour or so, five years ago.

You've got to remember who Apple are targeting the Pro at though, which is more of the professional market. Designers and the like who use a stylus on a dear daily basis on other devices. Tasks where using your finger is too cumbersome.

Of course you'll get normal users who buy a Pro, and they won't buy a stylus as can get by just as well (better even) with their fingers.

You are right. It's got to be for more advanced users. But why this? It doesn't strike me as this great new product. In the same presentation, they showed the new Apple tv and talked about the tv as the biggest screen. So you take the regular Ipad, Airplay it up to the Apple tv and why the need for the Pro? It's practically a laptop.

The pen, the drawing they showed in the presentation looked great, no doubt. But the Pro, the pen and the new keyboard strike me as uninspired. I used a bluetooth keyboard when the Ipad came out. Same with a pen. And I'd guess my old keyboard is still better than the one they presented.

In comparison, the new tv was at least news. They're on to something there, but I'm not convinced by the Pro (nor the watch). And I say this as a fan of Apple.

I guess it depends what you're after.

I've been crying out for a larger iPad since about a month after getting my iPad 2 years ago, I've held off upgrading as this larger iPad has ben rumoured for a long while now. It's great for general surfing the net, I'm on it now sat in front of the TV and it's great for that. However if I try to do any sort of work on it beyond some simple note taking or along those lines the screen is just ridiculously small and I end up getting frustrated - more so if you need more than one app to do the job.

The larger iPad will all side by side multi tasking on a much larger screen, so it's going to be really handy for me to work on and will hopefully free me up from being stuck in my office all the time.

Airplaying it up to the TV wouldn't really work either in most work situations I'd imagine.

Laptop died a few weeks ago so am looking to replace it with a tablet that can do it all. So far it looks like the only suitable devices are the Surface pro 3/4, lenovo miix 700 and the Dell xps 12 that was leaked yesterday. Was hoping the ipad pro would be running full osx but it doesn't for whatever reason.

Most likely I'll go for a Surface pro 3 cause I assume the price will drop when the new one comes out.

Play any goddamn PC game you want. And not just simple games. Hell you can run stuff like Crysis on this with ease!

Pricey but well worth it. Certainly more so than the new IPad pro if you are looking at doing any kind of serious work on it.

Yes. And it concerns me that Apple decided to copy that part. It lacks imagination. Apple have copied a lot (like everyone), but they have often come up with lots of user friendly solutions. That's their thing, when they are at their best. To me it seems they have now seen some technology they want to sell, rather than solutions that people (at least speaking for myself) desire.

looking for advice guys. Mum has a Nexus 7 (2nd generation) and wants to connect it to her HDTV, I assume its to stream sports via the mobdro app. Is there a lead that will connect direct from the tablet to her TV? (It does have HDMI ports) .

Will that allow her to watch what's on the tablet?

always sound advice here, better than Google most times!!

Its quite simple if you can get your hands on a slimport to hdmi adapter.

You can look for a slimport adapter on ebay/amazon etc. Connecting is fairly simple. You just plug in the slimport adapter to the hdmi port of your TV (after connecting the smaller end to your tablet's micro usb port) and you are good to go. No settings etc required.

You can stream music and videos, play games and generally browse the internet on your TV if you have the adapter.  I do it quite often to play games and stuff.

Only caveat is the availability of the adapter.  Its not that common and where it is available , it is quite expensive for what is effectively a cable. Will cost you around 20 - 30 odd if I remember correctly.

I'm after a bit of advice on ipad minis. I am looking to buy a mini ipad for Christmas. There appears to be some good deals on the 2 -  16GB for £199 atm, but I am concerned that it has been around for 2 years now. The 4 is going for about £319 atm, which might make better long term sense. Can anybody give advice on the performance of the two versions, as well as give a recommendation on the storage size 16GB or 64GB. Thank you.

I recently got an iPad Air 2 16gb and still have 6gb spare space. I've got over 20 apps and photos on it. I use my iPhone for music and Spotify for iPad. I'd go for the 4 if I was you. It may be more expensive but it will have a greater lifespan than if you got the 2 in terms of Apple updates.

Thank you for the reply. That seems to make sense, the 4 will of course get the latest updates for longer. The ipad is for the kids, so space does tend to get eaten up.

That is a good price!

Once you have the adapter it is simple.

- Take a standard HDMI cable and plug it into the Slimport adapter
- Insert the slimport adapter into the micro usb slot of your tablet/phone
- Switch on the TV and enjoy gthe contents of your device on a big screen  :D

Why not?? Does your moms tv support FHD (1080p)? 
The slimprt adapter can easily project full hd media onto the screen, no problem...

It does support full he, but she's streaming sports (from mobdro). I did say if she manages to find hd streams then it should project them ok.

Was on that site earlier. Got no clear answer. I've got a lead with HDMI at the end, a connection for the tablet, and a USB for the charger. Plugged them all in, nothing on my tv.

Do you have an MhL adapter? One end of the mhl cable goes into your tabs usb port. Plug in a standard hdmi cable into the other end of the mhl adapter.

Plug in a micro usb charger into the adapter as it needs external power.

You'll need one made by samsung. Generally mhl adapters are generic and can be used with any mhl enabled tablet or phone. But unfortunately, Samsung products defy this rule. They support mhl but use a slightly different adapter.

I've taken laptops on the plane before to watch movies, so don't see why you'd have an issue with a 13" (thin) tablet.

Will probably be getting a Pro myself soon, just want to go and have a mess about with one first before shelling out £800+ with the accessories.

I've taken laptops on the plane before to watch movies, so don't see why you'd have an issue with a 13" (thin) tablet.

Will probably be getting a Pro myself soon, just want to go and have a mess about with one first before shelling out £800+ with the accessories.

Will probably get one, just our boy has autism and with the portable DVD player, discs, all the other stuff guess I will need to save room for the pro too.
Wherever my boy is that's where I want to be.

I have a Kindle Fire that wont turn on, the screen is blank although it is making sound. I've tried holding the button down to reset but no joy, any ideas?

Is it fully charged? I know with mine, if it doesn't turn off properly it completely runs down and you have to stick it in the charger for quite awhile before it turns back on.

I've got it on charge now so will see after a while, but it's making a noise with the volume and power buttons, just a blank screen.

Hmmm no idea then. Mine usually will show that red charger battery thing if it's off charging.

Tried everything and finally found a solution online. As simple as removing the back, unplugging the battery and plugging back in. As good as new!

Cheers matey :wave
