My original iPad is getting a new home. So my purchase was more out of necessity than desire. While in the Apple store in Belfast I picked up the 32gb Wifi model for myself. Although reviews have been done to death I thought I would give my 2c.
Can I be the first to not go on about the screen on the new iPad? The problem with the iPad1 (and especially the iPad2 with cameras) compared to the iPad”3″ is that there is not much functional difference. From an engineer’s perspective I can still do work on my iPad1, watch movies, listen to music, use my SIP gateway, Traveler, Connections, rdp, vnc and a lot more. The difference to me is speed. As new OS’s came out the iPad1 got slower and slower. Screen touch software needs to be responsive as there is no tactile response that lets you know you have clicked something. You need to see it happen. On the original model, you could be left waiting quite a few seconds for the processor to catch up with your fingers.
The iPad3 is fast. Well fast. Go faster stripes fast. It makes my experience a lot better. Yeah the screen is great, but that is lost on me. I am yet to use the camera. But it is now much more responsive to my needs.
Finger in the air question for Blackberry customers/consultants
Thu, Oct 3rd 2013 4:00a Paul Mooney I am currently moving to Proof of Concept on a customer that wants BES10 service for new devices.
One customer. That’s it. I remember the days of doing 2 BES installations a week (from 2.2 to 4.x) many years ago. Lots of MDM/Traveler installations. Gartner’s recent recommendation to find an exit strategy for Blackberry Enterprise houses has not helped the abandonment. As opposed to media suggestions I wanted to ask constants and specialists and try to get an idea on takeup [read] Keywords: traveler
Bruce’s hair. An obituary
Wed, Oct 2nd 2013 9:00a Paul Mooney I first met Bruce’s hair in 2006, when he, his carrier and his wife started to talk to me at Lotusphere. He knew me from some posts I did on Microsoft application analysis and wanted to talk about business and life in general. From there on, Bruce’s hair helped me with session ideas, podcasts, dealing with storm’s in teacups and rallying the troops when needed. Bruce’s hair, or his carrier never spoke code to me, as I don’t speak that lingo, but always spoke c [read] Keywords: domino

Reverting to “old” google maps
Tue, Sep 10th 2013 7:40a Paul Mooney Whilst planning a bike ride on the new Google maps, I noticed you can’t multiple destinations. It’s a feature they haven’t implemented yet. After scratching my head, I figured out how to get back to “classic” maps.
