I had an iPad 2, but my mom bought it from me for a Nexus 7. The update to iOS6 on the iPad was just utterly underwhelming. Not one major improvement/new feature I could find useable... From then on I was(and still am) all Android.

iPod touch and iPad one. both work well and both please me. Bought the iPad when there was nothing on the Android side worth a darn. Not sure if I would buy another Touch, however. I have everything I needed from the Touch in the phone.

No hardware but I did try iTunes for about a week. iTunes turned out to be a hard drive hog. Took all my MP3s and made converted copies for to Apple compatibility. No thanks. Removed that bloatware.

My mom has an iPad 2. I believed the hype about iStability till she got it. It freezes up and has to be rebooted occasionally. iOS seems no different from any other mobile OS as far as stability is concerned.

My daughter has an older iPod touch and an iPhone 4s. She loves them both and has never complained about them. She sounded jealous when I told her I got the SG3. I get to flaunt it in front of her in a couple of weeks when she comes to visit.

I got my girlfriend a mac mini because she wanted some sort of apple computer... made me cringe as i paid. On the other hand it is very portable that I can toss it against the wall if I need to. I also have a iPhone 4 was the best phone att had at the time, good for games I guess.

I have an Apple IIe in my basement that still works. I got it from work years ago when they were throwing it out. A lot of you are probably too young to even remember them.

I've never purchased anything from Apple.

I remember the Apple IIe. That was the primary computer my school used in the mid 80s. They also had a few Enhanced IIes.

Yep, we had them at school too. In fact, my disks from way back then still work. Hard Hat Mack!

We actually had an Atari 400, and then an Atari 800 at home before we moved on to Amigas.

I had a 1st gen iphone that was a hand me down from a friend. After I shattered that phone by dropping it onto concrete, I went to an HTC tilt 2 (windows phone ) then to an HTC Inspire, and most recently, a Samsung Galaxy S3. I don't think I'll ever deviate from Android for the rest of my cell phone buying existence... It's just too easy. The fans of Apple products like to say that the iphone just works, right out of the box. Well, I have news for them.. So did my SGS3...

My fav feature of Apple TV is the real-time wireless mirroring of any iPad, iPhone or Mac. Furthermore, you can stream youtube from the iPad (for example) to the TV while doing something else on the iPad.

I also have a PC connected to a TV, and I use it primarily for playing TV shows and movies. But I can totally see how an AppleTV-like device would be preferred my many, rather than having to use a PC to control media.

I gave my boyfriend last year for his birthday an iPod Touch, he immediately hated it because of iTunes, mainly. Then, in August, he bought an Asus tablet, and was sure that his Apple gadget was a crap.

Our latest TV has a lot of that functionality built into it. It's got YouTube, NetFlix, Hulu and Vudu apps built into it and can stream directly from a media server without the additional AppleTV or PC connection.

It's really very smartly done. And, it's just a midline Vizio set I bought at BJ's, nothing top of the line, by any means.

I've owned two Apple products since the 80's. One being an old apple desktop. With the 7 inch floppy drive...:3 showing my age a bit....

The other being an iPod nano.

I will say, that despite the costs/negativity I hear from people, they seem to make solid products.

I have an ipad three, but only because the 'iPad-killer' Kindle Fire can't play certain games well or at all (Sims freeplay crashes to desktop, pinball arcade is in grainy low res mode) and android still has typing lag that makes long posts impossible unless I fall back to my ipad 3. Since I literally hate ICS/JB so much, that counts out future android tablets post-fire for me

I like their products, their price, not so much. And their planned obsolescence I.e., sealed batteries, lack of external storage

I don't think the Kindle Fire was ever an "iPad killer," it was too small. On my iPad I type with both hands just like a regular keyboard. I have held off replacing my iPad 2 until a 10" Nexus was released, now I can finally completely ditch apple after the holidays when I have the money to buy the Nexus 10.

BTW, there is zero lag on the Nexus 4, and that includes typing

Jellybean literally does away with lag. Its crazy fast.

I can't use ICS anymore because it seems like its crawling .

I'd suggest a nexus 7 to anyone in the tablet market. Its one of the cheapest out there and arguably the best.

Had the 3GS, had come from 3 touchscreen phones before it. Nokia 7710 being the first back in 2005! I liked the idea of apps but was against the iphone as I knew some of its limitations before hand but then I played with one and was blown away how smooth it was!

I lost a lot of functionality that older phones could do but for the experience and apps it was worth it. I jailbroke it, realised what I could really do with it then it was a natural progression on to android.

I have owned a few idevices, a 4G 2nd Gen iPod nano, a 30G 4th Gen iPod, and a 80G 5th Gen iPod classic. I gave the nano away when I got the 4th Gen iPod, then it died and I got the classic. It had been my music and movie player until I got my recent phone and now it only is used for music in the car.

The wife has had the 3rd and 4th Gen nanos. We have both considered iPhones previously, but have never got one. If the 4s had not still been full price I may have gotten it instead of my lucid, but I am quite happy with my phone and will probably never have any other iProducts.

Seriously? Comparing apples sic, and oranges here IMO, you have to compare like with like. The Kindle is NO "iPad-killer". It's primarily designed as an e-book reader. The iPad is also around four or five times more expensive than the Kindle.

You can't really judge lag in Android based on just one budget e-book reader. BTW I do have two 4.0 devices, they're certainly not laggy at all.

Putting ICS on the Kindle Fire made it crazy fast, and easier to type with. I read many reviews of the fire which had made illogical claims of it being competition for the iPad and nicknamed an iPad killer. I was just mocking the nickname. The reviews were basing it on a kindle fire post root and custom ROM, not the stock setup

If you haven't noticed, ANY non-Apple tablet that comes out is pinned as an 'iPad Killer' by the media/tech blogs. It's up to the reader to read between the lines.

Example headline:

"[Insert new tablet name here], The Next iPad Killer?"

Just google iPad killer. See what I mean? Currently it's the Surface. Who really thinks the Surface is an iPad killer?

I have never owned anything made by Apple.

The closest I have come is having the free Windows version of Quicktime on my Windows XP computer and the Safari browser.

I uninstalled the Safari browser quickly and uninstalled the iTunes that came with Quicktime as soon as it loaded.

You can't really judge lag in Android based on just one budget e-book reader. BTW I do have two 4.0 devices, they're certainly not laggy at all.
To be fair, wasn't the Kindle Fire billed as an iPad Killer in the press and all over the net?

You are correct about some Kindles being less, but their top of the line 8.9" KF is five hundred dollars. Just saying.

Yep, but that was more because it was being market by Amazon than any technological attributes. I am invoking the "If you don't have anything nice to say" clause about the Kindle Fire.

The iKiller meme started years ago and needs to die. It won't, but it needs to.

Famous iPhone killers in their day - the Freerunner Neo and the T-Mobile G1.

Famous iPad killers - original Galaxy Tab and the Xoom.



Meanwhile, I own an old iPod nano. Might be first generation.

It's becoming a moot point because there are so many android tabs out there now, that no one of them is going to sell better than the ipad, but android as a whole will probably overtake ios in the tablet market within the next year.

Lets face it as jhawk said no 1 android tab will ever be an ipad killer but thats not to say that certain android tabs are not better. Its simply because there are just too many android tabs for one to simply overtake and outsell the ipad by itself.

And seriously this ipad killer stuff is really just a media ploy. Oh and the kindle fire never had the specs to kill the ipad it was just amazons marketing skills as said by luna.
