Why is the iPad Mini So Attractive

Apple released the 4th generation iPad called the iPad mini on 23 Oct. 2012. The iPad Mini was flying off the virtual shelves. Only 36 hours after pre-orders began, two out of three of the available iPad Mini SKUs were sold out on the Apple online store. The 16GB black Mini was the most recent device to run through its pre-order stock. Shipping dates for many devices originally on November 2 have been pushed back because there are more buyers than the number of the  iPad mini available.

Why is the iPad mini so popular among people? This article will list some features which may concern to the reasons.
There is a beautiful display, powerful A5 chip, FaceTime HD camera, iSight camera with 1080p HD video recording, ultrafast wireless, and over 275,000 apps ready to download from the App Store. All these wonderful features are so attractive for people.

Its 7.9-inch display more than measures up to the complete iPad experience. View web pages in Safari. See where you are and what’s around you with Maps. Flick through photos and watch videos in details vividly. And wave hello to the family on a FaceTime call. The iPad mini display uses the same LED backlight technology as iPad to give you plenty of pop per square inch. And it’s perfectly sized to work with hundreds of thousands of apps made for iPad.
Its 7.2 millimeters size makes it pencil thin and unbelievably light. You can easily hold it in your palm. And stash it in your smallest bag without a second thought, so it’s always close at hand.
The iPad mini still lasts up to 10 hours on a single charge even with so much performance packed into such a small space. So you can read, watch, play, write, and create whatever you want, as long as you want.

Free Way to Rip DVD to iPad on Mac

We have talked about how to convert DVD to iPad with DVD to iPad Converter. But it’s not free. For anybody that doesn’t want to download and pay for a DVD ripper app, there is a much better way to achieve the same results. This article will show you a free way to rip DVD to iPad in general instead of step by step.

Both VLC Media Player and Handbrake are necessary. And the two programs are totally free. VLC is used to play and save the DVD data to a file, and Handbrake can convert it to a compressed video format compatible with iPad.

Before ripping DVD to iPad, you’d better get familiar with the two programs separately. Therefore, this method is fit for those people who have some knowledge of video conversion. There are lots of output video settings, but “H.264 video” and “AAC audio” are the recommended formats in Handbrake.

As seen from the screen grab below, HandBrake is really a capable video encoder. It can support many input video resources, such as the ripped DVD file saved with VLC Player, and convert them to the desired output formats. There are lots of options for video, audio, and even some detailed information such as creating movie chapters. You can customize the output video parameters, e.g. video format (i.e. H.264 Main Profile), quality (i.e. the bit-rate), advanced options like 2-pass encoding.

Apparently, this free method is much more complicated and takes longer time, but it could produce better quality of output video because the two programs have analyzed the source video twice and can make quite appropriate decisions on how to convert it. What’s more, you can take this method to rip CSS encrypted DVDs as well.

After the conversion is completed successfully, you should sync converted video to iPad with iTunes.

As the proverb saying “every coin has two sides”, this method is free, but the conversion is much too complicated. Although it is more convenient to use DVD to iPad Converter, the program is not free. You can choose any method in accordance with personal preference.
