Amazon Kindle Fire vs Apple iPad 2 [Video]

iPad 2 vs Kindle Fire

Apple iPad 2 is the best selling tablet in the market right now, even though companies like Samsung and Motorola are pushing out Android tablets, none of their sales are as good as Apple’s. One of the main reason why Android Tablet is not selling as well is the iTunes, iBooks and Apps Eco-System that Apple has.

Apple’s iPad is not only one of the best tablet hardware available right now, but Apple also have Music, Video, eBooks, Apps market. Thus users are able to buy and consume all of the above. This not only make iPad more useful, it also drive Apple to reduce the profit made from the hardware as they will be able to gain back by selling music, video, books or apps.

Amazon’s Kindle Fire might be the only real competitor with iPad as Amazon like Apple have the same eco-system. So can $199 Kindle Fire’s hardware be on par with iPad 2?

Check out the video below:

By looking at the video, Kindle Fire is not in anyway on par with iPad 2. It is more like a budget tablet which have very similar functionality with iPad 2, but is cheap. Although there is no match with the performance and responsive, but with less than half of the price of iPad 2, you will be able to read books, watch videos, play games and listen to audio books via this tablet with a 7 inch screen. I would say it is pretty worth it, if you are on a budget or you enjoy Amazon’s stores.

So how is Kindle Fire going to compare with the tablet leader iPad 2 and Nook Color? Looking at the above chart with Verge created, Amazon’s Kindle Fire is only wining in price point and dual core 800mhz processor. But iPad in hardware side is still a clear winner in almost all areas except pricing.

But the success of Apple iPad is not just because of the superior hardware and snappy software but also the content that Apple provides. With the strong background of iTunes Music, Movies, TV Shows, and the recent introduction of Apple App Store & iBookStore. If this is the main reason why Apple’s iPad is the leading tablet, then Amazon also have the secret forumla of winning over the domination of iPad in tablet market.

Amazon have one of the largest music, books, movie and TV shows collection on the internet. Not just that Amazon recently open up Amazon App Store for Android Apps. They have the exact same coverage in media and entertainment as Apple. Thus I feel Kindle Fire might be first Android tablet that will be having real success.

Below are the demo video of Kindle Fire’s Amazon Silk Web Browser:

Silk Browser is a very cool browsing technology that Amazon created. It works similar to what Opera Mobile is, they uses Amazon Web Service to cache and load the website before downsizing and optimized before pushing to the Silk Browser.

Multiple users account on your iPad with this hack [Video]

iPad is not a laptop/desktop replacement, but alot of iPad users are really using their main machine lesser and lesser. Of course it is due to the snappy iPad, fun Apps and it is just so simple.

Family iPad? How to manage?

I recently bought my mom an iPad 2, and she is loving it. Not only loving it, but she is already a gamer! So one of the issues in iPad is that although it is kind of a family iPad, thus everyone is sharing it. But it doesn’t not have any account to differentiate the users.

iUsers – Ability to add users to iPad!

For example, I like to read on flipboard, iBooks, tweet and check my emails. But my mom do light gaming, Facebook and watch video. So one of the problem is I can’t customize the home screen according to my liking.  Not anymore. Pedro just release a new cydia hack for jailbroken iPad users – iUsers. You can now have users account on your iPad just like any Mac or PC.

Pretty cool yeah? Do check out the demo video below and let me know what you think about it?


1 Millions iOS Devices jailbroken by Jailbreakme.com

It is just 1 day since Jailbreakme.com is launched, and 1 million iPhone, iPad, iPad 2 and iPod Touch have been jailbroken by it. It is a huge number, much more than what we expected. This might be the largest amount of devices jailbroken on a single day.

To be honest, I would like to know the percentage of devices that was jailbroken. I will bet that 70% or more should be iPad 2, as previous jailbreak methods still can’t jailbreak iPad 2.

Of course, Apple will not just sit back and relax over this matter. Apple’s spokewoman Bethan Lloyd has confirmed that they are “aware of this reported issue and will be developing a fix that will be available in the upcoming software update”. Comex are using a PDF exploit, thus it is treated as a vulnerability for iOS, so I’m sure Apple will be releasing a update very soon.

So before anything comes out and break the Jailbreak, please proceed to Jailbreakme.com and enjoy!
