New google Nexus 10 vs Ipad 3rd generation

by mmassyrian519 / October 31, 2012 1:03 PM PDT

Im in the market for a new tablet. Ive owned many apple products as well a galaxy S2 and currently with my S3. Ive also owned a first generation ipad but never an android based tablet. Both IOS and android have their pros and cons and id be happy with either os.

Which is the better buy? Ive pretty much researched the heck out of each one. The nexus 10 is leaps and bounds better but the only thing thats holding me from making a future purchase is app selection. From what ive read, ipads have more tablet optimized apps then any android tablet. Developers are releasing apps first on ios before it hits android. App selection (especially ones that will utilize the nexus 10 screen) is very limited from my understanding for android based tablets.

What do you fine folks think? Which is the better buy?

I think it depends on the user.

The Android still is more fiddly than the iPad. So those that ran Windows seem right at home. The Windows PC users also tend to worry more about CPUs, RAM and such.

So there it is. Look at what the user has had before and you see which they may like.

the Nexus is the better deal. The thing is there are thousands of apps you would never install anyways that are in Intunes and not in the Google play store. I've had an Iphone in the past and moved to Android phones and have a Galaxy Tab 10.1. I've found if there's a app for the Iphone/Ipad and you can't find that specific one then there is another app in the Play Store that does the same thing.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
