Gotta agree. My RT-N66U(Shibby 121) is running a crap load of stuff with zero downtime. VLAN, IPTV, VoIP, OpenVPN server and client, Print server, etc etc etc.

I've got an RT-AC68U as my access point. Not as mature firmware wise, and hard to test to it's full potential, but rock solid none the less.

ASUS can shut up and take my money.

Of the Nexus One (2010-01), Nexus S (2010-12), and Galaxy Nexus (2011-11), which can run Android 4.4 (KitKat)? Nexus One is stuck on 2.3 (Gingerbread), Nexus S on 4.1 (Jelly Bean), and Galaxy Nexus on 4.2 (Jelly Bean 2) or 4.3 (Jelly Bean 3) depending on revision.

True enough, however, if I REALLY wanted my old Android device (Nexus S for example) to run a newer version of Android, it COULD be done. Root the phone and load Cyanogen or something. With an iPad, from my knowledge, you're pretty much SOL.

I hate how this is breaking support for iOS 5.1.1 only devices like the iPad 1. My mother-in-law is not technically inclined, but uses an iPad1 for banking and watching TV shows. Both apps have broken support for iOS5 in favor of iOS7. This makes a device she paid good money for only a couple years ago a paperweight. My Motorola Xoom I bought at roughly the same time is going strong and running a very current version of Android. This kind of thing is just a normal function of technology every 4-5 years+, but not 2 or less. Unfortunately for Apple her next device will be an Android. Cheaper and obsolescence proof for much longer.
