Three dead pixels.

I think there is a setup thread that would appreciate this photo.

I can hear your iPhone rattling from here. Please, join the rattle-gate thread with this evidence. Thank you.

Cute family pic. The little guy sure looks like a lot like Uncle Galaxy. Something we should know?

Sorry but

Sorry but why would you have an iPad Mini AND an Air? That's quite a waste of money if you ask me...

Look great but starving your kid to death (the skull on the right) to buy this stuff was probably not a good idea. :)

It's not??! You surely must be made of money! You've just effectively bought the same thing twice....!!!

Mind you I do have a Retina Mini myself
I also have more than one TV at home. A really big one and a couple of smaller ones. More than one computer also. A really big PC and a svelte MBA.

And no, you don't have to be made of money. Having a job and managing your finances wisely can also yield two iPads.... :cool:

Wow lol I do not understand you at all. You've bought an iPad twice for no benefit other than screen size. Why spend another $500 for an extra 1.8" of screen size? But I guess some people have their own preferences/opinions

Because...Apple marketing turns us into the mindless consumers we really are deep down...

No. I think that there is absolutely a justification for owning both. The Mini in my eyes is like an overblown e-reader. Used primarily for reading and toting about, it can also do everything that the bigger iPad can do, especially now that its been updated. The Air has the best screen and is the best iPad to date for watching movies, YouTube, and other consumption related activities. Mind you, the Mini can do this as well of course, but its that much more portable.

Forget the "family", you need to show us the rest of that house!

Also, do you exclusively use both iPads or does your "real" family swap between?

What a weird thing to say... That's MY opinion. :)
If I still traveled for work, I would have a rMini also. One for home, and one for the road.

I have both a Mini and an Air. The benefit is that I have one and so does my wife.

Other side. It's a studio

Cool pad! Question, I like how you have the TV hanging in front of the bed. Is that a second TV behind the facing the bed or a painting/photo? Do you run your cables/cord through the silver bar holding the curtains? Anyway, nice set of toys!! I have the same setup regarding the toys. I like the mini better for reading than the Air.
