1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

Refurb iPad 4 or new iPad 5 (mini)

    My trusty nexus 7 is getting a bit long in the tooth, unfortunately it looks like apple is now the only game in town. Used for cyber loafing, is the 5 better value for long term use? or should I just get a refurb four, would it last about four years?, I have had the nexus for six.

    I too am contemplating a replacement for my old Nexus 7. One of the reason I bought the Nexus (which is still working though a bit battered) in the first place was because it wasn't an Apple. Why do you think Apple is the only game in town?

    With Google not interested in tablets then any new one will most likely not be supported after a couple of years, the good thing about the nexus 7 was that the updates kept coming, as well as it was nicely specced.

    What do you use your tablet for?

    IMO get the best you can afford; being a huge Android fan, iPhones imo don’t come close. But for tablets, the iPad is the best of the lot

    The basic 9.7” iPad at c£320 is hard to beat for simple tasks and it’ll do about everything needed for a standard user

    Does the Apple still obey the three laws of robotics?

    I can see why. I have seen a sharp decline in tablet visits on my website in the last 2 years. So far this month:

    Mobile 3,804
    Desktop 2,340
    Tablet 623

    My market is quite old too, I would say average age 45-50.
