What resolution are you playing? Can you list which version of i3 ULV? I have a Macbook Air with a i5-3427U 1.8 GHZ running BootCamp W8.1.

I did the same thing... I had both a 2012 and 2103 and I gave my 2012 to my nephew and sold the 2013. I ended up purchasing the iPad Air and I enjoy it so much more. I spent so much time trying to get things to work on the Nexus 7. Swapping kernels, rooting, etc. games and certain apps didn't work well on the smaller screen. Fonts and other UI elements didn't work right. I didn't like Android, and as much as I appreciate the flexibility and openness the over all experience sucked.
There are so many more apps on iOS that look and feel better on the iPad vs Android on the Nexus 7... It was very annoying to see horrible UI phone elements on the 7" screen. Again, this is a direct comparison between both of the devices and their respective apps.
The Android apps I used were also slower on updates and clunkier than their iOS versions. Overall, it just fell short of a desirable user experience.

You're wrong.... Mac OS has had video encoded hardware acceleration before Mountain lion - depending on the GPU in the system. Video acceleration has been part of the OS for years - I used to use Macs to do video editing for YEARS... Apple added Intel's Quick Sync on Mountain lion (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_Quick_Sync_Video) Please do your research before you post stuff on the web.

Lily pipes are not hard, just be careful as they can break (and have broken) - I would keep a spare set in case. They are really easy to clean and most people who don't know about aquariums comment on how cool it looks. You can clean them in 5 seconds with a coiled wire stemmed brush. It's something I do monthly at most. easy!

Return the iPad. I have a brand new cellular Air and have no issue. You got a bad unit.

FYI, The HOB was only used initially to seed the tank with bacteria. I kept it for a week and then removed it.

The filter was purchased in March so it was about 9 months old when this video was made. The flow was slow from the get go but I wanted to see how much cleaning did to flow. I keep a clean tank (Weekly 50% water changes) so there shouldn't be an issue with dirty water/clogging the motor. 
I tried changing the impeller cover and using hot water to flatten it with no luck.
To be blunt, If an impeller cover gets warped (or a motor dies) in a tank that is at 75 degrees after 9 months (on a tank with 50% weekly water changes) then the filter is a POS... I know people who clean their filters once every 6 months and Ehiems that run for 10 years. The Eheim I had originally was a used 4 year old 2028 and far more powerful until one of the plastic fittings broke and I had to replace it immediately with the 406 because I couldn't find a part that quickly.
 
Still having a minor touch issue with jss15r. Does anyone know what it fixes?

Amazing ramen and fried chicken buns. With the wait. Put your name down and head to H street country club, get a drink, play a game and when your called, head back for awesome food.

Though, at times it's like an episode of Portlandia, it's a great place to work and eat. The food is good! The environment is like an oasis, the people are very friendly. My only issue is I work remotely and their choice of music is usually jarring and loud - blasting MIA today (which I love) but not to work to - which is what most people inside are trying to do.

Good sandwiches, poor service. Places like this would go under in NYC

Absurdly good. Very good selection of films constantly being updated. They serve alcohol, a variety of good food along with the usual movie fare. They also don't charge you a lot for basic things like popcorn and sodas.

Multiple visits to purchase Apple and third party products, great service. I've been there probably 8 times since the store opened to get help from the Genius Bar and they have always been helpful, courteous, and professional. It's one of the reasons I keep purchasing Apple products.
