It seems like the coolest new gadgets out there are the small versions of tablets. If you want one, how the heck are you supposed to know which one is for you? ****SPOILER ALERT**** You aren't. You're supposed to fall for whichever company has the best form of mind-controlling advertising.
This can be confusing when you compare Apple's iPad Mini to Google's Nexus 7. While Apple has the clean, simple, smug, hipster approach to advertising (it's working), Google has the easy-going, mind-controlling, sometimes not-so-subtle way of subliminally targeting you (it's working). It's hard to choose a side and stick with it. I for one, have grown 'older' using Apple in my daily life to do my work, but I also am one of those confused Mac guys who uses an Android phone to try and balance the devil's tools in my personal life. That being said, I believe Mac makes the perfect tools to be creative and do my job as a video producer/editor/pawn. At the same time, Google's products have given me the perfect tools to manage that work-flow.
WOW, get back to the subject, pal! Okay, fine, Nexus 7 vs iPad Mini:
They're both very comparable products when it comes to overall functionality. Nexus 7's screen seems a little higher quality for watching movies, while iPad Mini's display seems to produce crisper text and graphics. On the other hand, the iPad Mini has a slightly larger screen, is thinner and lighter. That's its biggest (maybe only) advantage over the Nexus 7. Considering that Apple's product is about $130 more, I see no reason to choose it over Google's. They will both ultimately do the same things, but it seems as though Google's devices are more easily customizable.
Thanks to all whom have given me the chance to confuse them, although that wasn't my intention. But hey, it's my blog, so if you don't like it, you can (insert exploitative verb).
