    Can you explain what you did on iCloud?

    My wife's iPad mini is crashing constantly. When she watches movies, everything shuts down randomly.  Also, webpages that she visited disappear.  Emails that were deleted in Yahoo show back up again as unread.  Really wierd!  It was a gift, so I'm not sure what the return policy is.  But, given the issues as described here, it seems like even new ones have issues.

    Safari on my iPad Mini Retina crashed while trying to respond to this post. Steve must be rolling over in his grave!

    Actually, if your TV required a digital converter, one was provided free of charge at the time of the conversion to digital broadcasting. No one expected you to eat a company's planned obsolescence in support of their forced sales strategy.

     

    For this and other reasons, my family are considering the options before blindly buying any more Apple products. Apple is batting about .500 on laptop hardware, 2 of 3 iPad 1s are collecting dust in a drawer, we're disillusioned with iOS 7 and iPhone hardware, and the iOS-ification of OSX is juvenile and annoying. I still want to prefer Apple, but I have to admit that there's a compelling case for considering carefully what you're getting into before buying their products.

    Mine is crashing frequently, especially on YouTube. As an example, everytime I try to load this LA Times web page article, Safari shuts down:

    How do you "sign in" to iCloud?

    I received a "brand spanking new" (not refurbished) replacement iPad because Safari was crashing regularly on my orginal iPad since installing IOS 7. Well...the new iPad is not a "fix" for the problem. Safari just crashed on it.

    Perpetual pain!  Started with iOS 7 and crashes regularly. Never thought I'd say it, but should have stayed with BB play book.

    I checked "Diagnostics" under General Settings and looked at the long list of information sent to Apple. The majority of it was crashes. Most of the transmissions said "Low Memory" or "Stack." So I assume that the operating system is not clearing memory of managing stack space properly.

     

    Thus sounds like something Bill Gates could fix on his lunch break with a hair pin.

     

    Now, in addition to all the app crashes, I'm unable to download updated apps...I've got 8 waiting to download. I press the Update button, get the rotating wheel, then the Update button reappears. I'm using 8 GB of 32 GB, so there is plenty of space.

     

    I've already abandoned iTunes after spending thousands there because of corruptions of my music database. I guess I'm going to have to move to a tablet or Kindle. Then the iPhone's next.

    "...Thus sounds like something Bill Gates could fix on his lunch break with a hair pin..."

     

    I doubt it. A blog story just last week described how Bill Gates just spent his first day back at Microsoft livid and frustrated because he and the new CEO together could not figure out how to get Gates' computer upgraded to Windows 8.1. Big troubles with the installer....

     

    Everything is relative.

    Problem fixed !!!

     

    I bought a new Asus Transformer T-100 64GB running Win 8.1 and put my iPad away. 

     

    I haven't experienced a single crash and it's far faster than browsing on the old Fruity Thingy.   I might miss a few apps but I'm loving everything else... not to mention I don't have to worry about Flash, java, sites not working right, or being stuck with mobile sites instead of a full browser.

     

    Not looking back.

     

    Someone let me know when the class action starts.

    I've returned my iPad Air months ago, still watching this thread for the latest.

     

    I picked up the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, it does everything I need without the crashing, and I've found many of the same apps I use, the most important being my audio and video streaming which is great. While Samsung may not be considered high quality as would be expected from Apple ...neither was the iPad Air.

     

    Ah, so there is life after Apple ...if you have good reason to look for it.
