I just bought a ipad but it won't let me post on the PG. It poos up a error msg every time I try. My question is if there are any other ipad or iphone users that have had the same thing happen and of so how do you fix it

Maybe its just me, but what is the appeal in a tablet over a smartphone or laptop etc?

There really is no difference, than a ipod or ipad, the pad is just a bigger version of an ipod. The only thing different than a laptop to ipad, I would say is, it's just lighter to hold.

I actually bought it to replace my Laptop. Not a lot of difference and actually has no disc drive but its easier to lug around and is smaller. It just another step in the evolution from PC to Laptop to tablet

I've used an Ipad for this site without problems before, not sure if I was just making picks for an event or posting can't remember, but I looked up your problem, because I heard of other people having problems posting in forums before, common answers I found were, use the mobile app, if there is one for here, or push insert HTML button.

I got a Samsung galaxy note tablet, mainly for the inbuilt design programs and the S-pen, it makes design fun and easy, for my business, it's perfect, where a laptop would be too cumbersome and lacking a touch screen, and a smartphone is too small, and has trouble running the bigger graphics programs. The tablet is harder to type on than a laptop, and I haven't been posting anywhere near as much on here because of it, sorry guys. Punctuation is also harder, so my posts seem wooden and lifeless, and it makes me want to post less. Don't worry though, I have a laptop, and only use this to post on here when I'm doing my morning ablutions

In a nutshell:
Tablets are a bit of a gimmick, unless you have a need for what they bring, which is a big touch screen an d multi tasking capabilities. It's a great time wasting device

Ipads and tablet use flash memory which is why they can't do what a laptop can as far as programs. They are only limited to apps.

Which imo makes them sort of almost useless
