    I bought a new Ipad mini last night and I cannot get an ad to stick on certain classifies sites. I switch back to my laptop and everything works fine. Does not matter which account I use either (mini deletes ad immediately and laptop has no issue). I can also use my daughters older version Ipad, any account, and not have any problems. Anybody have any ideas? Cookies and cache delete through the settings just like the original ipad but is there something I may be missing with newer version?

    Thanks

    As an Android guy, I would trade for a Nexus 7 (or 10) and move on. But it does sound like a cookie or cache problem, try using the same settings as the iPad that works. Browser and anything else that can effect cookies.
    (I forget the layout since my iPod Touch 1st gen is still on iOS 3).

    I would wait for the upcoming Nexus 8, however if you need something now Android is the way to go
    Doesn't matter what just make sure it's running Kitkat

    I wouldn't say "doesn't matter what" there are more shitty android tablets than not. Between poorly made Chinese ones, and brand name ones with terrible wifi range.

    The Nexus 7 is an Asus product and the 10 is made by Samsung. Im a fan of Samsung products but I have zero experience with Asus. Id rather have the smaller product but not if it wont last. Anyone have any input on this?

    I've had kindle fires which I love! But the newest one had a weird glow on the sides of the screen which saves battery life. I just couldn't put up with it so I returned it and got an ipad mini. I tested them side by side before returning the kindle fire. The kindle was a lot faster and more stable. My Ipad constantly crashes while browsing the web (constantly in comparison to the kindle), but the ipad screen is a beauty and I need it for reading. I'll be right back with kindles if amazon fixes their issues instead of calling them features.

    Fix the problem? Any more info?

    Long, looong shot, but are the ads Adult ads? apple has been known to delete peoples emails and other content that are deemed "inappropriate".
