Weekend of February 21, 2020 – Hour 3

Tech News and Commentary

Dave and the team discuss Facebook’s Pinterest clone, the bracelet of silence, targeted typo squatting, the WHO and misinformation, slowdown in demand for DNA tests, future SpaceX launches, and more.



Bruce in Ridgeland, Mississippi listens on SuperTalk 97.3 and asked: “I have an Amazon Fire Tablet, and I was thinking of going to an iPad. Would that be better and give me more capabilities or not?”

Bruce, yes an iPad is a better device and it will give you more capabilities, the question is whether they’re capabilities that you “need” or “want.”

For example, there are iPads that can do fairly heavy graphics work, but you may just want to watch videos and read some websites.

As long as your Fire Tablet is serving those needs, you can replace it with another Fire Tablet for considerably less than the price of most iPads.

If you’re looking for a specific feature an iPad may be the way to go, but if you’re only looking for a newer tablet, that performs a little better, a new Fire Tablet may be enough and cost far less.

It’s worth noting that if you’re after extra capabilities, a small laptop, maybe one with a touchscreen, may be a replacement that is still portable, has a long battery life, but is capable of much more and it may not cost you a lot more than some tablets.
