Well my ipad decided to hiccup yesterday, I could no longer access iTunes to download apps. i tried everything and after nearly an hour on the apple help phone ( who wer VERY helpful) I have had to reset and restore the whole thing, which it is doing now from the computer in the study, I hope it works!

Just caught up with this discussion. Glad to see I'm not the only technophobe and applephobe on the planet. This laptop computer I use is getting old and tired (like me), and I've been wondering about replacing it with a tablet. Fancy a small Samsung Galaxy Tab, because they can double as a large mobile phone and a camera. I went off apple years ago when I discovered that you couldn't convert their files to run off windows; and they refused my credit card. Facebook/witter et al don't interest me. Too intrusive. Anybody got or tried a Samsung Galaxy tab?

They have no hard drive.
Peculiar understanding of what a computer is....
I have several computers that don't have a hard drive and I don't own a tablet.

Well I bow to your knowledge of course, Pluggy.
Put my mis-information down to the spotty-faced young sales assistant who sold me the product.

No, I sold it decades ago (1989 I think). How did you know I had one ?
Edit, its still on my website of course........ Google still finds it even if it isn't linked from the main site.

Is it true that Captain Kirk is suing Apple for having pinched the design of his Communicator to make the Ipad?
Posted: 10 Oct 2012, 05:20
No. Because he stole the idea off the Klingons.

You're confusing ideas...that was the one for Kling film.

I think the chap at Motorola ( the first flip phone I think ) , did confess that he wanted to design a working product based on Star Trek communicators.
