Exactly my situation. I didn't update to iOS8 on it because I didn't want it to slow down considerably. It still works great and I will keep it as my only tablet until it won't keep up with the software that's important to me. So, perhaps a 5 year cycle with tablets, at least with me? I'll still buy another one when it's time. They are very handy for many different things.

Well, People generally comment on this site that basic research can lead to unexpected outcomes, new questions. It's entirely possible that all of this data can help support something new that we haven't thought of yet. I understand that this isn't basic research, but I feel that it could be applied here.

Checking back on this thread has made me think a little about being a bit more fair about viewing this topic, but you are now the second person that has remarked on the tattoo by his eye as a tear drop. Let's be clear that it is the start of a SCAR tattoo that wasn't covered up by the makeup. Now, if it was left visible because it was too close to the eye for makeup to cover then that's one thing, but if it was done intentionally so members of the jury would mistake it as a tear to evoke some sympathy, then I'm back to feeling how I was in the beginning. Cover it up or don't.
