    All of our company techs use flashlight apps on smart phones (Apple, Android, BlackBerry). It really helps when you are in a dark spot installing devices in customer's homes.

    Yeah, I'm a tech too, but prefer a real flashlight I can hold in my teeth.

    Interestingly enough, an up-date to the latest software package has been made available. I'm thinking a few glitches fixes, no big deal.....looks like another 3 hours on the old DSL

    Not to beat a dead horse, but here are a couple more weather apps that I use as a pilot. Weather Bug Elite, and My Radar Pro. Also, Nav Clock is kinda cool, it also gives you your Lat/Long and elevation etc. Another cool app for looking up at the sky at night from the campsite (or your living room through the ceiling) is Night Sky. I was a PC guy up to about 2 months ago, now in my household we have 2 iPads, an iPad Mini, a iPhone 5 and a Mac Book Air. Hope the above info helps.....Glenn in Tucson.

    >>an iPad Mini,<<

    And how do you like the Mini? It's on my short list of wants right now. Do you find the "non retina" display to be all that different?

    Tnx..RUT

    Glenn -

    One of most memorable nights I have spent outdoors was outside of Tucson on Mt. Lemmon during the Perseids meteor shower in August many, many years ago. Welcome to the world of Apple!

    Cheers,

    I love it, and I don't see much difference at all, my wife has a new one with the retina. But I bet that will be Apple's next release........

    Cheers,
    Thanks for the welcome, Theo, I appreciate it. That is a beautiful place and a great ride. They did have a big fire up there a few years back, burned 300 houses/structures and a bunch of acreage. Glenn in Tucson

    That's what I'm afraid of! I think they purposely did not make the Mini w/ retina display so as not to detract sales from the full sized iPad. (which wifey has)

    This is nonsense. It's all about battery power. The battery would have to be huge to support retina with ten hour life, besides, the way it is now looks damn good even if you're used to retina.

    I love iOS, but I'm an Apple fanboy who is happy with Nexus 7, until Apple wises up and gives me retina in a 7-8 inch form factor.

    I have a mac mini also. Small footprint and quiet. Best desktop I have ever bought. Replaced an Apple Quicksilver and a Dell. My wife took one look at a Mini in the shop and said that she liked it better than any computer we owned.

    Apple markets the Mini as their entry level computer and it is aimed at people that want to try a Mac for the first time. If you want to try the used market, you should be able to find a nice Intel based unit for about $100-200, maybe a little more.

    Ran across this while looking for something else....
    Just did the update to the latest and greatest IO7, I guess. Not real enthused with the keypad contrast but I'm adjusting.
    Has anyone figured how to clear the notification that all the old read e-mails are now un-read?
