Video Screen Color / Speed / Size Comparison - Ipad 2 Vs. Ipad 3


After i put up my review of the new ipad i had some requests to do a comparison of the ipad 2 vs. The new ipad 3. So i did a quick video comparing the two (see below). I compared the screens, speed, and physical properties of the two. Let me know what you think - i'd like to know how many people have the more "pinkish/reddish" hued screen like i do vs. The yellowed screen.

Be Informed Before You Judge Screen Color

Many people are used to looking at monitor screens that are way too blue. And thus when they look at a white screen they think it is yellow. This is not my opinion, this is a fact. A vast majority of the monitors sold now-a-day are calibrated to a color temperature that is close to 9300k, which is way way too blue. A neutral color temperature, one that is neither too blue or too yellow, is 6500k. This is the standard color temperature for photographic work. Even high end monitors can have a very bluish color cast, reason being that if you are so particular about having a neutral color screen, you would spend the money on a colorimeter (spyder, eye-one, etc. ) To calibrator the screen.

The reason commercial monitors are calibrated to display a blue tint is that blue stands out more in the show room. If two monitors are placed side-by-side, most people would prefer the one that is more bluish. If you go into a store and play with the expensive monitors, you would find that most have setting for color temperature, and inevitably they are all set to 9300k and not 6500k.

Before you judge a screen that is too yellow, you might want to compare the screen to a calibrated monitor. Before you judge a screen that is "white", compare to a calibrated monitor to see if it is in fact too blue. From my experience apples does not play that 9300k games with their displays. All apple screens are close to 6500k because apple products are used by many graphics artists.

Ipad Vs Iphone / Ipod Vs Netbook Comparison Features

I am a bit disappointed in the results.

Comparison -

>>The iphone/ipod touch of course revolutionized the phone, mobile browser/internet, and mobile games. Pretty slick interface that is only now, 3 years later been matched by devices like the droid.

>>Multi-touch technology is pretty much a defining feature and its implementation is light years a head of everyone else's and is only second to something like the microsoft surface and that stupid thing cnn uses around elections.

With the exception of the ipod classic/nano and appletv, all apple products have multi-touch to some degree and it has revolutionized the way we interact with technology as consumers. So what do does the ipad have? Every signal apple product has a defining feature of some sort.

The ipad the best i can tell is simply just a super sized iphone. Which is not a bad thing the issue is that is really adds no new functionality. When the device was demo'ed, steve browsed the net and when to a website and show use that the device had no flash support (still). We have seen browsing the web on a multitouch apple device before steve that is what we all expected it to do at least but where is the new defining feature of the device?

Now apple basically put this out, as we all know, as their third way device. Between a phone and a computer mobile or otherwise.

The ipad vs a netbook.

- Similar specs -

An ipad and a netbook for the price comparison will afford you about the same 10 hour battery life. That is where the similarities end .

Unlike an ipad, a netbook runs a far far more robust os that allows for what . Multitasking. When i am basically being mobile and on wifi, i expect to have three things open at once. A chat client, a word processor and a internet browser. All of this can be done on my ubuntu installed netbook pretty pain free.

I don't really see myself taking notes on this device. I mean even if i did during a lecture, i would have to save my work, go back to the home screen, load up a browser to switch to the web. If i had another note to take, get out of the browser, load back up the iwork app, and type whatever and pray i didn't forget an important point. What if a friend im's me? Well get a push notification, exit my current program, and load up aim. All of this is a very memory intensive process is what in the long run, saps your battery life. Its just not practical as a mobile device me it seems.

Steve jobs may see a netbook as an inferior device but even without 130000 aps is still more functional to me as a mobile platform to take around with me. I don't see any major reason why i should get this device? Do you? The only real reason i can see anyone buying this is for an ebook reader. That's about it.

Remote Desktop Client (rdc) Comparison: Logmein Vs Ignition

What's the difference? One is free with a $40 upgrade, the other is $99. I am planning to use this on my 3rd gen ipad for my imac and pc. If there is a better remote desktop client (rdc) than these two? I don't really want to mess with port forwarding, etc. I just want to set it up, and have it work. I am more interested in speed and quality (obviously, i guess) so any help would be appreciated!

How Do We Know The A5x Clock Speed?

I keep on hearing from people that the a5x will be clocked the same as the a5? What i'd like to know is where people seem to get their sources from. Seriously, apple almost doubled the battery of the new ipad. There is no way the retina display takes up that much power, considering how even with 4g lte, battery life only goes down to 9 hours. My theory to explain this is that the a5x is clocked higher, maybe at 2 ghz. Apple has rarely, if ever, upgraded a product without upgrading the cpu, and i would think (not sure) that a quad-core gpu would need an enhanced cpu to feed it information.

Is There A Way To Speed Up Handbrake Or An Alternative?

I usually try to put some kids dvds on the ipad or mac air before a trip. I open them with mactheripper and then convert with handbrake. The process takes 3 hrs on a 2 yr old imac. Then i use iflicks for the metadata and even that takes forever. Is there a way to speed this up? Or is there a faster alternative even paid. I legally own these dvds so it's legit for me to copy them for my personal viewing.

Just wondered if anyone else is experiencing very slow app downloads? I am sure it was fine for the first few days of receiving my ipad 2 but it now takes 10-20 minutes to download and install any app.I am downloading direct from the app store on the ipad rather than via itunes on the pc.Connected via wifi and it's the 64 gb i have so loads of space free and all apps run very fast once installed.Strange.

What Size Ipad Did You End Up With And Why?

I think most of us are a little indecisive when it comes to dropping a significant amount of money on purchasing the latest and greatest gadgets. I had my last second decisions and still ended up rethinking my purchase. In the end, i'm satisfied. Why? I have the option of adding internet and enough room for the possibility of bigger sized apps. So what size(s) did you end up with? And why?

16gb Is The Perfect Size For The Ipad?

Ok, i admit i created my thread title to get "32gb and 64gb owners that lack self confidence" in here but mainly i just wanted to encourage fellow 16gb ipad 3 owners. I just got down setting up my 16gb wifi only ipad just as i want it and want to share with you how it's filled. My main space filling app is called logos. It's a bible app that works in conjuction with software on my laptop. It takes up 5. 2gb because i downloaded 1290 resources that i own (bibles, commentaries, magazines, dictionaries, books, etc). I have 25 game apps including modern combat 3 (1. 8gb) and real racing 2 hd (1. 1gb) and dungeon defenders (949mb).

I have ibooks and khan academy and itunes u for more learning. I have netflix so that i can watch all the old shows i like to watch. And i have 462mb left over. I have a 64gb iphone where i keep my music and pictures. I never download movies.

So there you go. I have more books loaded on my ipad than i will ever be able to read. More games than i ever have time to play (and gaming is one of my biggest hobbies). And in those 2 things, i'm 100% mobile since my games and books are downloaded. Now if i want to watch netflix, i have to be on wifi.

Point of this post: 16gb is perfect for meeee at this exact time and people need to stop coming on macrumors and hyperventilating that they won't be able to put 20gb of music, 20gb of movies, 10gb of games and 10gb of pictures/videos on their ipad.

I will say though since i find my iphone much more convenient to use i will always get the max capacity for it (64gb right now). But if someone wanted to buy a 64gb ipad to store most all their stuff and a 16gb iphone just for reading material i wouldn't say they made a bad decision they will regret. I would understand my needs are not their needs and be happy for them that they could afford an ios device.

What Color Is Your Ipad?

I have a black ipad. I kind of got sick of the white look especially with my iphone being white. I feel like the black looks much sleeker, and blends in great with your background. Anyone think apple in a few years could introduce a third color for the ipad? I wouldn't mind seeing a silver device either.
