Deal of the Day

Looking for a good deal on an iPad Pro? 

The pros have four speakers and are way ahead of the regular iPads and iPad Airs on specs. The Smart Folio keyboard case works off magnetic connectors, not bluetooth.  You can buy them brand new at $169 or get a used one much cheaper.

Yuck. M2 chip lacks AV1, Ray Tracing, and Neural Network Acceleration. Oh but it’s got more speakers? How absolutely pedestrian. it’s marked down because it is eWaste to anyone who isn’t a mouth breathing boomer.

@3:03PM "mouth breathing boomer" - I guess that's me then.

3:03 Wow, aren’t you a high and mighty, millennial turd

OK boomer well let me inform you why AV1 support is so important. It is the latest and greatest video compression algorithm. If you don’t have the hardware AV1 decoder then your device must decompress and render AV1 compressed video in software. That means slower, choppier video and decreased battery performance and plus chip runs hotter because it is working harder.

If you have a PC then you can just upgrade your GPU and get AV1. But everything Apple made before the M3 is literally eWaste now because it lacks modern accelerators and you can’t upgrade anything Apple makes anymore.

It sucks because I have an M2 Mac mini and it stutters like crazy and it’s not even 2 years old.

Nope. Apple Vision Pro is running an M2 chip as well. It was obsolete a few weeks after it was released.

@3:03 - is the iPad your primary gaming device? Seems weird to care about ray tracing for angry birds.

3:03, your first post screamed out “socially awkward nerd”, and your second post showed us you are proud to be one. It’s a shame you don’t get out in the real world and use your computer nerd talents on useful software such as AutoCAD, ArcGIS, or even Excel.

@4:48 PM - LOL my A off.

3:03 sounds like a young prick that works in our place. He can speak the lingo but when it actually comes to applying it in the real world he may as well slam the toilet seat on his dick.

All this over an IPad post?

Jeez. The computer nerd pseudo-elites, gun nerd pseudo-elites and Madison County resident pseudo-elites here are pathetic.

Thanks for trying, Kingfish. Most of us appreciate you.

You can hurl whatever insults you want.
Mississippi truly is a state of ignorance.
Every single time KF posts one of these “tech deals” its just some eWaste.

An outdated iPad is a an inefficient waste of money.

4:27, So Apple just now, in 2024, finally developed the tech to play glitchless video?

You might want to start your troubleshooting with your Internet connection/router.

11:24, the original post might have been viewed as informative until the poster decided to work a boomer insult into the comment. Everyone else simply responded to that.

11:24 - Many people lack funds and/or have no need to buy a state-of-the-art computer. An inexpensive I-pad can connect them with the internet for a price they can afford for the purposes they're interested in. With their new connectiveness, they can even read your snarky comments.

99% of users don’t need ray tracing or NNA on an iPad, so what KF posted is indeed a good deal.

The difference between ipad generations isn't that big. U mean unless you're running something like 10 years old. Tech moves fast but not that fast. We're at the point where a 7 to 10 year old flagship is equivalent to a mid level especially in regards to phones.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
