Video: Full 290 Megabyte American Magazine PDF On iPad Air 2 With iOS 9

I’m in a state of shock.

Not only did it download the PDF that iOS 8.x couldn’t, it opened in iBooks and worked as above.

The video is short because the nearby Mini I used ran out of capacity for the video(!).

I will now go wander the bitter streets of Manhattan in a daze.

More maybe later…

Amazon Introduces New Fire Tablets & TV

And WTF is this claim about?

See the full line-up after the break.

Screens: Tab 8.4 Versus S2

If you want to see obsolete technology, go to a Staples.

That’s where I finally encountered the now-rare Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4.

In short: There is no way in hell Samsung can convince me the Tab S2 series uses the same screen technology as the 8.4!

The colors on the 8.4 pop unlike anything else.

The colors seem to be painted on top of the glass screen.

The brightness is incredible.

It has a WOW! Factor.

It does not turn a goddammed sickly blue at an angle!

While good, the S2 screen is just lacking after the screen of the 8.4. And with that lacking, Samsung has allowed the iPad Mini 4 to become a contender for my ultimate purchase decision.

And in terms of build, the 8.4 feels like it’s worth US$399, unlike the S2 8.0.
