I posted on various social networks around New Years that I was going to try to avoid buying any new apps or gadgets this year, instead resolving to make do with what I have.
So useful, in fact, that now I’ve decided I really need to buy an iPad mini, and the sooner the better (if I wait until it ships with the as yet unreleased iOS 6.13, I might not be able to jailbreak it as well).
I have an iPad 4, but that doesn’t cut it. My big boy iPad is supplied by work, so I can’t jailbreak it. And some of these tweaks are too good to live without. So I need my own. And there’s no point in having two large iPads, so the mini seems like the logical choice.
I only need the WiFi version, and 16GB will do since most of my stuff is cloud based. So as soon as I cobble together about $350 (insert Chef’s dad’s bit about the Loch Ness Monster on South Park here), I’ll have a new gadget to welcome into Chez Kirvin.
