  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

    Actually, in practical use it's not too much of an issue. As i was reading this on my iPad I looked and saw how I was holding it.

    I'm reclined on the couch, holding the device in a landscape orientation. The bottom edge is resting on my upper right leg, and Im holding it up with my left hand, which is resting on my body and quite relaxed. I use my right hand (also resting on my body) to tap and scroll. When I moved to start to typing this response, i propped my leg up and type naturally. No gorilla arms going on here. For relaxing and mostly reading it's very comfortable. I'd pull a laptop out if i needed to type much more than this though,

    a) recognise mkv over DNLA and be able to be play them correctly

    Your NAS can't deliver MKV over DLNA, as it's not one of the supported profiles []. It's possible someone will do it in a non-standard way eventually, but it can't be done within the standard.

    I wonder who's the moron here. I'm pretty sure that his son isn't really interested in watching the DVD-discs themselves but rather the movies that's stored on them. An entry level iPad have 16 GB storage. That's about 20-30 nicely ripped movies in a DVD class quality no kid would complain about. And one reasonable way to "augment" storage is free software like ZumoCast that will stream whatever you have on your home computers. Works fine over 3G if your cell provider has their act together. I think the jokes on you, so blinded by anti-Apple hatred to see the utility that millions already have.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from a rigged demo. - Andy Finkel, computer guy
