  • Gotta say, the speed looks great on the Samsung (as does the bit taller screen), but I would go for longer battery and no-heat any day.

  • I try to watch all these videos on my first generation iPad, without success. Then I go to my PC running Windows 8, and love the videos. Apple you have lost me. My next tablet, machine will be a Windows 8 touch screen. Love it. Just love it.
