"I used to think it was a terrible thing that life was so unfair. Then I thought, 'what if life were fair, and all of the terrible things that happen to us came because we really deserved them?' Now I take great comfort in the general unfairness and hostility of the universe." — Marcus Cole, Babylon 5 — A Late Delivery from Avalon
IIRC it's something to do with Safari being in it's own "box" to prevent anything nasty being downloaded onto the iPad
To be honest it's got fuck all to do with that despite what some might say and everything to do with Apple trying to ensure that as many files as possible are filtered through (and ideally purchased from) their own software eco-system.
Have to say my iPad gets not much love these days thanks to the Galaxy Note 2. Will end up with a Nexus 7 inch tablet I think later this year then the iPad be gone.
Having been playing about with someone else's keyboard dock with my IPad2 I have come to the conclusion that they are invaluable in terms of forum interaction and stuff - the fact that I can type five times faster on the keyboard dock than I can with the darned on-screen keyboard is a not inconsiderable factor.
So, does anyone have any recommendations in that line if thing? It doesn't have to be an integrated case/keyboard thingy, because I am not forseeing using it on the move, it is more for use as a static dock.
Does anyone know how to change my password for my Apple Id, ie what is used for Itunes purchases, etc? I need to change it urgently due to Comixology security breach and am shitting myself that my account will now be reamed. I can't find how to do it. I found one webpage but it kept asking me what car I owned as a security question. Never owning a fucking car. Going fucking demented with this shit.
I accidentally left my iPad charger block in London when I came home today.
In order to get the stupid thing to work I plugged the lead into one of the many USB/mains plugs I have that give a Not Charging message on the iPad figuring I'd run it off mains power to read off in bed.
I went away and had dinner, When I came back upstairs to do bed for Jonathan I thought the charge bar had gone up even though it still said Not Charging. I went back downstairs for an evening of TV and came back to find the iPad still claiming it's Not Charging but registering nearly 100% charge.
Is the Not Charging message actually a big lie in some cases?
I've put off updating the Ipad Ios thingy for quite same time as it still ran the older (far superior) version of the BBC News app. But now it no longer supports the Iplayer app (which I hardly use but need as Doctor Who is back on soon) so through gritted teeth I must finally accept the update to the new shitter IOS.
