Why do people buy the Nexus 9 cover and than rant because it doesn't work the same as the iPad cover? Oh and it can be pushed off you say, dur, it's magnets, not glue.

This feels like a farce. Jon gave it no chance and didn't even show how it worked. In what case is holding the cover and dangling your tablet important? When he stood it up in stand mode he did it completely wrong. He just pulled the cover off rather than flip it around to the back like every other cover works, which works really well even though there is no side attachment. You're doing people a disservice with this video.

Here's an alternate perspective. I've had a very different experience with this case. It stays firmly in place unless you purposely push it off, what did you expect? Personally I have not had an issue with that in the two months I've had it. Also it's great when gaming as it substantially reduces the heat your hand has to absorb when attached to the back. It's nice that it holds to the back with magnets, something the iPad cover does not do and because of that that the back flaps around, which I find annoying.

Also of note because it doesn't have a specific side to latch too you can chose either side when using as a stand so you don't have to put the soft side down. This is especially helpful in the kitchen for use with recipes where the counter can be dirty and stain the inside of the cover.

If you like covers and are OK with the price, get it, its worth it. An official cover really makes the complete package with the tablet. Cheap cases off of Amazon don't offer the same experience and end up making it larger, heavier and cheaper looking than the official cover does.

I love the cover. Didn't think I would at first but it works quite well.

Define Entitlement: the belief that one is inherently deserving of privileges or special treatment.

I just don't get the outrage, who cares about skins. The game on its own is well worth the $60. If they want to sell some extra stuff that doesn't affect your experience to help cover development cost, so be it. If you bought the game they don't owe you anything but the core experience. I don't understand why people feel entitled to everything.
Evolve has quite a lot of paid skin DLC on day one. Evolve’s in-game store has a whole bunch of skins that you can buy to make you stand out from the pack. There are multiple skins for the three different monsters along with weapon skins for all fou…

Yeah I don't get it. It's cosmetic. Who cares. I agree that there should be unlockable skins too as a reward in game, but who knows their might be. Reading through the comments people don't even seem to understand why they are annoyed.

They complain that there's DLC on day one, like it would matter if they waited a week. They complain that the DLC cost money, but that it doesn't give any in game value. That you shouldn't need to pay money for a game you already paid $60 for. So they both want the DLC to have an in game function, but don't want to have to pay for in game functions.

I think it's more of a general sense of being fed up by DLC in general and they are raging at the latest contender. When you got a complete game and then DLC added extended stories, additional areas, and new characters that was okay. But now we are seeing games obviously limited on day one with DLC coming out a month later with additional content that could/should have been included in the starting game. People aren't happy with what they are getting for the initial cost and made at having to shell out even more money to get the whole game.

But in this case, some purely optional, purely cosmetic options is a good use of DLC content. Just like how WoW lets you by new mounts or pets, they don't have any special function that's not available without the DLC, just different options for people who care enough to spend the money.

I definitely agree with this completely. I have over a hundred apps on my Nexus 9 and only a few don't scale well. I'm looking at you Facebook and Dropbox.
 
The "Android tablet app" exists only in the minds of misguided developers and ignorant analysts.

Some food for thought:
Focusing on the idea of an "Android tablet app" is missing the point -- and misunderstanding how Android as a platform works.

Still ugly like all their other watches, with way too much bezel and inferior button navigation.

Adding colour doesn't change my view on Pebble, I'd rather have a touchscreen LCD.

4-7 day battery life also doesn't benefit me. I'm going to take my watch off at the end of the day so putting it on a charging pad beside my bed is fine by me. I'm more interested in a Google Wear watch.

Looks like the single core performance of the 64-bit Tegra K1 is about 33% faster than the Snapdragon 810, which is a little disappointing.

Superior single core performance is what has given the iPad the edge over many Tablets in performance and fluidity in every day tasks and I would really like to see more SOC focus on that, rather than extra cores.

K1, X1 and A8x are designed for tablets with over TDP of 5.5, while 5433 and 810 got around 2.3 thus SOCs designed for tablets will score bigger in single core performance.

+Andreas Lagerkvist yeah for sure. Last yeah Titanfall did the worst thing to their already small community by releasing 3 map packs. I can't even find a game of capture the flag. It killed the game for me.
