    Still there on mine? Right click the invisible start button, most of what you need is there.

    And as with most big os everything easily accessible from the command line.

    Some USD pricing has popped up for the Mini. How do we think that will equate in GBP? 1:1? :)

    Also, possible revised standard iPad rocking the lightning port...

    The pricing is the most mysterious part, to me.

    It has to be cheaper than an iPad 2, more expensive than an iPod Touch, but still be comparable* to other 7 inchers on the market.

    *doesnt mean 'the same price as'

    I think you're absolutely right, what seems to be the thing that's highlighted the most is the Touch is... ahem, a Touch over priced!? No?

    It they were to reduce that a little then the mini might fit just right in the pricing structure.

    Stil, that said... "New Shiney" who cares how much it costs.. ;)

    The touch starting at 250 is a lot of lolly for what it is.

    You know when you pop onto the Apple store webpage, and you can see the iPod touch 'starting from 169'...?

    I had one of those genuine 'what the fuck?!' moments when I notice that the OLD iPod touch was 169 and the new ones are 249 ... that is just absolute madness for two very good reasons.

    The first being that you can buy a Nexus 7 for 159, making the OLD iPod touch ten pounds dearer, which is quite frankly ridiculous ... and secondly, by pricing the new iPod touch at 249, which is absolutely absurd in itself, they have possibly cannibalised the opportunity to start the iPad mini from that price tag (or cheaper).

    Sometimes, even a company like Apple, should take a hit (in one of their products) to price it at an accessible and affordable point.

    I won't be surprised in the very least if it is closer to three hundred than two hundred pounds.

    After using android for three weeks now all I can say is that apple really need to work on iOS rather than new hardware.

    Especially when that new hardware is a blatant "me too" product.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Well since using IOS products since the 2nd gen iPod Touch all i can say now is, Apple just need to keep making sexy looking hardware to keep me interested.

    As frustrating as the pricing is, I can't see me starting to invest in the Android market too.

    That, and the fact I don't like change. :)

    It's a similar situation with PSN. To a degree I've got no choice but to go with the new PlayStation, I've purchased so much content it would be crazy to go over to Live.

    I've been using Andoird for about a year now. When it works it is lovely, but that lasts an hour and shit starts going wrong and you end up with a frustrating cunt of a phone that feels like Windows ME in my pocket. You quickly realise how pointless widgets are and start wishing shit would just work the way it is meant to. Then when the frustration really gets to you you start to notice how cheap and nasty the build quality is. It is at that point where I miss my iPhone. So yes, Apple need to spice up iOS. But no, Android OS is not the reason for that... :'D

    I'm a bit puzzled about the need for an iPad mini, and how fits with the touch, but I'm not sure it's as simple as small=cheap implying the iPad mini should be between the touch and the iPad 2 or 3. The touch is probably so expensive exactly because it's so ridiculously tiny.

    The mini will fill the 'inside suit jacket pocket' market.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Heh. I guess I don't mean its "too" heavy. Its just the difference between it and picking up, say, a kindle. One day, ipads will weigh as much as kindles, that would be amazing.

    Well I've always wanted a bigger ipod touch. However the iphone 5 extra length was simply not what I was after. I am hopeful this one will hit the mark.

    Mind you, unless they accept brass razoos in payment I'll be getting neither right now.

    FCUTA!

    Watching the video of these two guys jumping up and down whilst squealing like little girls after handing over $700 (or more!) for the iPhone 5 is ...

    ... pathetically sad.

    You can like, just hit your start button on your keyboard and just type what you want you know?

    I bet you still use Networks to find a server instead of typing \\servername\

    Fucking hell why can't anyone else in the market match them in aesthetics. Would love some competition.
