An ipod is the answer to all your problems and to get organized easily! :)
Apple is the leader in its iPad3. The picture quality is superb. The speed is remarkable and ease of use is like none other. There is nothing to compare that is fair that is out there. Others try, but do not live up to the superior quality of Apple we have 3 iPads from iPad2 to iPad 3 and we love them all. They are easy to use and children to elderly can use them with ease. I cannot say enough good about them and the applications or "apps" if you will, are just mind boggling and all ages have fun with one app or another. They simply are the best and you will not be disappointed by any means. You no longer need pen and paper. You can do all your studying and mark your work and refer to almost anything with the touch of the screen and if you don't want to touch the screen, you can talk to it and it will direct you or record what you want and save it for a later date. The calender feature is amazing and will record what you want for any date and time and remind you of it. The address book is great and you can transfer your information with the flick of your wrist and all information or part will be transferred to another device. You will like it guaranteed and a novice like me is impressed all around and I want another for every member of my family and you can locate your family on it and if you should lose it, you can locate it instantly and lock it or erase the contents. I tell you, you cannot go wrong. It is worth every penny. I am only touching the surface of what it can do. Children use it with ease and teach me the features and apps to help me as simple as a grocery list by talking to it. It reminds me of what I often forget and makes me feel like I am not losing my mind for once. I highly recommend one for you and all your family. Enjoy should you decide to purchase one. It is worth every penny. Enjoy.Read full review

Pros vs. Cons For the iPad 3.
I have the 64GB with wifi. I have a 3G iphone and the 3G is so slow that I had no interest in the 3G ipad version.
- Crystal clear screen, great for playing videos and games
- Intuitive interfaces, awesome to have a larger touch screen device
- Free kindle, ibook, netflix, weather apps
- A large assortment of apps to explore
- web browser, email, could be a sole device for some folks
- very portable
- no issue with the wifi for me, easy to log in, no drops
- Not a laptop replacement; no web cam or ability to print
- Battery life not the greatest and will not charge from my laptop, it does charge from the wall with the included charger
- No multi-tasking (but word is this will be fixed with an upgrade)
- I'm sure this version will soon be outdone by next version of the ipad that costs less and does moreRead full review

Awesome, best tablet by far, but doesn't exceed the hype!
The new iPad comes with a raft of enhancements including a Retina display and LTE technology. Khidr Suleman compares the latest iOS tablet to the iPad 2 to see if it really is worth the upgrade.
The new iPad has been out for well over a week now and has generated mass hysteria. Apple shifted three million devices in the opening weekend, maintaining the firm's grip on the tablet market.
We put the new iPad up against the iPad 2 to see if it is worth investing in the latest model or better to snap up the second generation device at a cut-price.
For the purposes of this review and to help avoid confusion we will refer to the new iPad as the iPad 3.
Design – Double vision
There is little to separate the two tablets when it comes to looks, something that was a little bit surprising considering that Apple usually revamps the design after a couple of generations.
Apple has retained the 9.7” screen size, solitary home button and 30 pin connector. The colour scheme also remains unchanged with users able to opt for a black or white bezel. The Wi-Fi only iPad 3 is 51g heavier than its predecessor whereas the 4G edition weighs 55g more than the 3G iPad 2.
The main reason for the weight gain is the inclusion of a 42.5Wh rechargeable battery in the iPad 3, which is near enough double the size of the battery in the iPad 2. This is needed as the Retina display, quad-core GPU and 4G technology are very resource hungry and Apple would not have been able to provide anywhere near the 10 hour battery life that iPad users have become accustom too.
To accommodate the larger battery and 4G technology, the iPad 3 is 0.6mm thicker than its predecessor, which is pretty much negligible to the naked eye.
Winner - Draw - Despite the iPad 2 being a tad thinner and lighter, the third generation model packs in some very impressive technology to justify the slightly bulkier frame and looks equally as appealing.
Display – Retina is stunning
The Retina display has been touted by Apple as the headline feature of the iPad 3.
The 2048 x 1536 resolution on the iPad 3 is double that of the iPad 2 (1024 x 768) and it shows. The Retina display is extremely vibrant and is superior to the iPad 2 when displaying high-definition pictures and videos. One of the most noticeable features is the clarity of text – the lack of pixilation when reading e-books, web pages or zooming in on stocks is very impressive. Business users are also likely to find it far easier to read PDFs and edit documents on the iPad 3.
Text on the iPad 3 is visibly sharper than on its predecessor.
At present there are 48 apps out of the hundreds of thousands in the App Store, which have been upgraded to make full use of the Retina display. These include apps such as Twitter, Readability, Flipboard, Infinity Blade II and SketchBook Pro. This is expected to increase very quickly, but it should be noted that the size of apps will also increase.
Many of the gaming apps that take advantage of the Retina display are at least 500MB in size, with some well over 1GB. This is something to bear in mind when you are purchasing the device. If you plan to be a heavy app user if may be worth getting at least the 32GB model.
Realistically, the iPad 2 still has a more than adequate display. However, the large apps that have been designed for the Retina display will not provide material benefit to the iPad 2.
Winner – iPad 3 – It is difficult to go back to using the second-generation tablet once your eyes have becomeRead full review

Apple makes a much better product than Samsung. With Samsung, you have to use a Samsung printer to print most things. Apple's response is much quicker and can handle multiple open screens without slowing down
