Question by erin: What can the New Ipad do that an Android Ice Cream Sandwich can not do? I’m not really seeing where the appeal is here. Once Samsung releases their screen on their Android tablet then what would the point be of buying a more expensive less functional Ipad? I can’t think of one thing the Ipad can do that an Android tablet can’t.
Answer by Arenkay1. The way the apps are designed. There are so many resolutions and sizes of Android tablets that not all apps work the same way on every tablet, or even as well on every tablet. This lack of unanimity is eliminated with the iPad.
2. iPad apps are often more functional than their Android counterparts
3. iPads have the Apple store if you need help. Where do you go if you need help for your Android tablet?
4. The iPad doesn’t need all the apps the Android tablet needs to keep itself running at optimal performance.
5. More Apple tablets have been sold than tablets of other companies, meaning there are more apps, accessories, etc. made for them as opposed to others.
6. The iOS system is more integrated. (iCloud. I just upgraded from an iPad 2 to an iPad 3. To get everything, texts, songs, emails, apps, tones, backgrounds, photos…etc. I had on my iPad 2 onto my iPad 3, all I had to do was restore from iCloud. Everything started downloading right away. I left my iPad sitting there for an hour or two and when I came back, everything was there so I could start off with my iPad 3 where I left off with the iPad 2.)
7. UI is easy to use. Easier than Android tablets, making it friendlier for the masses, especially for business use.
There are loads of reasons one would purchase an iPad. And nowadays, an iPad is not less functional than an Android tablet. It does everything an Android tablet can (yes, even flash too. Just download the right app to do it), but with a smoother user experience. There is a reason when big businesses, like hospitals, provide tablets for their employees they choose iPads; one has to do less explaining to get their employees up to speed so they can use it and get back to work.
Android tablets are great, I’m sure, or there wouldn’t be so many avid fans. But, there are a lot of people who want the absolute easiest way to get from point A to point B so they can get right into what they are doing. No thinking about the amount of apps they have open, no virus worries, no rooting… just pulling the device out of the box and getting to work.

AT&T and Sprint have already laid claim to LG’s flagship Optimus G handset, but what of the rest of the Big 4 national carriers? Verizon has been keeping awfully quiet on the subject — maybe because it’s still trying to push LG’s curious Intuition phablet — and for now it seems T-Mobile is making do with another, less illustrious Korean handset.
The carrier has just announced that it will launch the LG Optimus L9, but like nearly every other phone announcement made in the past few weeks, there’s nary a hint at pricing to be found. Even its release date is shrouded in secrecy — all T-Mobile will say is that it’s set to launch “later this fall”.
Even though T-Mobile and LG are clearly keeping key details hush-hush at this point, they couldn’t completely keep the news under wraps.
Here’s the skinny on the Ice Cream Sandwich-powered L9: it packs a 4.5-inch, Gorilla Glass 2-coated display running at 960×540, and a dual-core 1GHz processor of unknown make. Meanwhile, a 5-megapixel camera can be found on the 9.1mm-thick device’s rear end, while the device’s 2,150mAh battery should keep things ticking along for quite some time. Alright, fine, it’s not the most exciting spec sheet you’re going to see over these next few months, and the L9 announcement may highlight an even bigger issue for T-Mobile — what’s going to be their big holiday seller?
For a while there it seemed like the natural heavy-hitter would be HTC’s One X+, which appeared on a T-Mobile document under a pseudonym. As it turns out though, the One X+ is an AT&T exclusive, and the perhaps the only top-tier device that the magenta-clad carrier is expected to carry (the Galaxy Note II) is slated to launch on most other carriers as well.Related Posts:
These are some moon shaped ice cream cakes designed for Häagen-Dazs by Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien. Nice try guys, but we all know the moon is made of cream cheese. “You mean green cheese?” Don’t be ridiculous.
The white moon consists of a pistachio biscuit base, layers of macadamia nut ice cream and meringue and a coating of raspberry ice cream. The orange moon has crunchy chocolate at the bottom, layers of nutty ice cream and salted caramel and a coating of vanilla ice cream.
Which moon do you want? I want the white one. Well, I want the REAL one, but I’ll settle for the white ice cream one. “You’ll get nothing and like it.” I’ll get nothing and pout like a child. “I love it when you’re sad and angry — they look good on you.” Yeah? So do bras. I like the lacy ones where you can still see my nips.
Thanks again to chichi, who agrees the best ice cream cakes are shaped like dinosaurs.

After more than a month of waiting, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 for T-Mobile has finally joined some of its brethren with an Ice Cream Sandwich update. Big Magenta has posted the Android 4.0.4 download for those who’d like to install the OS manually via Samsung Kies. While the carrier says the Android flavor won’t be delivered over-the-air, TmoNews reports that some users have loaded up their hardware with an OTA update. Ready to hop on the ICS bandwagon?

Steam has developed a reputation as a haven for indie games like Super Meat Boy, so it’s only fitting that store owner Valve has just launched a section to welcome more of those games into its tent. Greenlight lets small developers submit titles and have gamers vote as to whether or not the candidates should get space on Steam’s virtual shelf. Pickier players don’t have to see every game in contention; they can filter the list down to specific game types and platforms, and collections can narrow the selection to categories hand-picked by fans or publishers. No games have cleared Greenlight just yet, but it won’t be long before the logjam becomes a flood — between this and general apps, Steam is about to get a lot more crowded.

If you can’t wait to subject Google Now to an epic interrogation of your own but don’t have access to Android’s Jelly Bean-flavored OS, then you may want to check out what’s cooking over at the XDA Developers forums. If you’ve got a rooted ARMv7 device with Ice Cream Sandwich and ClockWorkMod Recovery, it’s actually possible to start enjoying Google’s take on the virtual personal assistant on your smartphone right now. As usual, you’ll need to download the requisite file and partake in some good, old flashing action. Folks who appreciate having options can also take their pick between a fuller Google Now experience or a more stripped down version by hitting the source link below.
