Apple IPAD Mini Review

I have enjoyed the use of my I pad mini for almost 2 years now.

I was surprised to find that after troubled attempts to upload photos and especially videos to my Windows Xp, I found out that all I had to do was connect with USB and it would act like a storage disc holding my photos.

I first tried to upload through email and drop box. Either it took too long to load, or the videos arrived in useless bits. I then tried Itunes on my XP. Horrors. I uninstalled I tunes.

Then I read somewhere that I could connect with USB. I still am amazed at how smooth the transition from IOS to XP can be.

As far as the two upgrades, I was slightly distressed after I downloaded 7.1.2.

I felt I was duped into a change that did nothing for me. All the icons changed...why?

I never liked the way they looked since. Now they want me to upload the newer operating system which I refuse to do. I hear that people are losing battery power much faster with the latest OS.

No Thanks.

But as for the general use, its really a great tool.

It is quite clear you didn't think much of the iPad Mini or you would written a longer view. Yours was very quick to read.

Sorry about that,

My intention was really just to note the one feature that really surprised and pleased me.

If I ever get enough time, I guess I could write a complete review.

But instead let me just note here that I really love my ipad.

I can't think of any thing to complain about except for the way apple duped me into the upgrade. I didnt think I was going to be downloading a whole operating system. I just thought it was a bug fix or something, that is until I "agreed" and saw the whole screen go out.

Thats why I didnt go for this upgrade to IOS8.

But I will try later to give a full review.

Thanks
