    My iPad ^ | 04/16/17 | Me
    Yes, I am logged in. Normally on iPad I can finger scroll up the writing box to see what I am writing as I write it. Now, for the past two days I cannot see what I am writing. I don't believe this is an FR issue, as it is happening on text conversations with otherse. As with Free Republic, I have to click the button to lower the keyboardscreeni order to see what I am writing. Editing is impossible. Anyone have any help?

    Commentary: A new J.D. Power study finds Surface buyers are happier than their iPad counterparts. They're younger and prefer Microsoft's design. Have you noticed a certain giddiness in some of your friends lately? I'm thinking about the ones who use a Microsoft Surface.I only ask because J.D Power has just emitted its US Tablet Satisfaction Study and it declared that Surface owners experience deeper sensations of satisfaction than iPad buyers.Apple fanpersons might turn pale when they learn the main reasons for this greater Surface joy are, according to the Power people, "its top rankings in the features and styling &...
  • iPad Optics (Apple’s iPad has an installed base of over 300 million, far larger than the Mac’s)

    The iPad has an installed base of over 300 million. This is a far larger audience than that of the Mac (which has somewhere between 100 million and 150 million). And whereas the iPad acquired this audience in about 7 years, the Mac took 33 years.Curiously however, it is the iPad that is seen as the more fragile product. The iPad is considered to be failing, with a presumption of an end of life in the near future. The evidence of this failure the year-on-year decline in units sold. This is illustrated by the following graph.  Note that the iPad decline is paired with...

    Apple just dropped a new iPad with all the excitement of an IRS audit,” Daniel Howley writes for Yahoo Finance. “That is to say, there was none. It feels like the company just woke up Tuesday morning and decided, ‘Hey, let’s announce a new iPad.’ Instead of a flashy event like Apple usually holds when it debuts a new product, we simply got a press release. I’ve had dentist appointments that were more thrilling than Apple’s latest announcement.” “So why did Apple, the company that basically owns the tablet market, debut a new iPad without making a big show of...

    me | Nov. 6, 2016
    I want to buy a new laptop and would like to stay around 11-12" and under $500. I don't have a tablet, so I'm thinking of getting one that either docks to a keyboard and is detachable, or the type that flips & isn't detachable. I'm leery of the detachable, because I've read reviews of people having trouble with them after a while. I want it to have Windows 10 and a touchscreen would be nice also, but not imperative. I'm not a gamer but I do want speed ...I'd be using it for FReeping, surfing the web, email, etc,...

    My girlfriend opened her iPad this morning and was presented with a pop-up requestor that stated "It's time to change your iPhone/iPad passcode." with a CONTINUE button. Apple NEVER requires users to change their device passcode. This was an attempt by some bad actor to gain access to her iPad for a nefarious reason. This took her to another requestor that had three entry boxes. Two were for a new passcode, and a check of the new passcode, and the third was to enter your current passcode. One could NOT make this go away, nor could the home button bring...

    Susan* bought her 6-year-old son John an iPad when he was in first grade. “I thought ‘why not let him get a jump on things?’ ” she told me during a therapy session. John’s school had begun using the devices with younger and younger grades—and his technology teacher had raved about their educational benefits—so Susan wanted to do what was best for her sandy-haired boy who loved reading and playing baseball. She started letting John play different educational games on his iPad. Eventually, he discovered Minecraft, which the technology teacher assured her was “just like electronic Lego.”

    Apple has quietly changed a policy that has resulted in iPhone and iPad owners having to more frequently enter passwords to unlock their devices.Users must now enter a passcode anytime the device’s Touch ID fingerprint sensor hasn’t been used in the past eight hours or when the device hasn’t been unlocked with a passcode in the last six days. In such cases, Touch ID is turned off until users enter passcodes.Apple-tracking site Macworld noted the little-noticed change and investigated the reason behind it. It found users who claimed that Apple’s passcode requests had become increasingly frequent.Apple has long required that...

    Steven Sinofsky was President of Microsoft’s Windows’ division from 2009 to 2013. From his blog post about moving to an iPad as his full time machine: Unlike many “use a product for month” tests this is not an experiment. For me this is a deeply held belief that the rise of smartphones (specifically starting when the iPhone launched) would have a profound impact on the way we all use “computers”. The transformation spans hardware (thinner, lighter, smaller, cheaper, longer battery life, instant on/off, touch, sensors, connectivity, etc.), operating systems (more: secure, reliable, maintainable, robust, etc.), and app software (refactored, renewed,...

    Apple early this morning shared a new pair of videos on its YouTube channel highlighting the effect that technology has on those with special needs. As this month is Autism Acceptance Month, the video, called “Dillan’s Voice,” features a teenager named Dillan and shows how he uses Apple products to express his thoughts. Dillan is autistic and nonverbal but yet has very complex and powerful thoughts that he is able to express using his iPad with an augmented and alternative communication app. Dillan has been using his iPad to help communicate for around three years and the product has quickly become an...

(TSMC), a.k.a. the world’s largest contract chip maker and one of Apple’s two suppliers for the present-gem A9 chip, has announced that its 2015 earnings were the highest in its 29-year history. Contrasting with reports of developers said to be suffering the effects of weakened Apple orders, TSMC has thrived on the back of the iPhone 6 and 6s — with $9.15 billion in net profits this year alone, representing a 16.2 percent annual increase. TSMC said that net profit, earnings-per-share, and consolidated sales all broke the company’s past...

    I do most of my internet use on my iPad. Often, particularly on Facebook, if I'm trying to view a video, my screen will go black right when I get to the meat of the video. This just happened now when I was trying to watch Santorum's comments on The Morning Joe. I notice this happens often to videos linked through The Blaze. In order to watch the enitre thing, I need to search through Facebook again, hope I can find it, and that it won't crash again. Is anyone else experiencing this? Could it be a function of a...

    A leading Democratic senator will seek legislation requiring the ability to "pierce" through encryption. The potential bill would allow American law enforcement to read protected communications with a court order. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that she would seek a bill that would give police armed with a warrant based on probable cause the ability “to look into an encrypted Web." "I have concern about a PlayStation that my grandchildren might use," she said, "and a predator getting on the other end, and talking to them, and it's all encrypted. I think there really...

    President Barack Obama tried to reassure the American people from the Oval Office on Sunday evening that he takes the threat of terrorism seriously: "For seven years, I've confronted this evolving threat each morning in my intelligence briefing." However, as the Government Accountability Institute (GAI) has shown, Obama skips more than half of his daily intelligence briefings. The data comes from the White House itself, which has admitted Obama's absence but has said he reads the material on his iPad.

    Fans of the iPhone and the iPad have long seen the late Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple, as a messianic figure, whose drive and vision turned computers from clunky business machines into the epitome of cool. Danny Boyle's new biopic, starring Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet, will further burnish his remarkable reputation when it premiers next month. But one woman has a different and more traumatic view: Jobs's high school sweetheart Chrisann Brennan. She lived with Jobs and was an early Apple employee, only for the relationship to fall apart amid wild recriminations when she became pregnant with his...

    In 2012, when Microsoft first introduced the Surface Pro — a tablet that was also a laptop — it became an industry punch line. “You can merge a toaster and a refrigerator, but that’s probably not going to be pleasing to anyone," quipped Apple CEO Tim Cook. Nobody's laughing now. And Microsoft is looking more and more like a trendsetter. Three years after Cook's jab, the Surface Pro 3 is selling strong — strong enough that Microsoft is expected to launch a much-anticipated Surface Pro 4 at a special event on Tuesday. In the meantime, Apple and Google have started...
