    For music, the only option is iPad. Audio latency is still an ugly thing on all other tablets, and devs and music technologists have embraced the platform because of how singular it is, as compared to the fractured state of Android. There are like three different iPd specs to design for, compared to something like 5,000 different Android specs globally.

    For everything else and generally daily use, it doesn't matter, and your probably be better off with an Android.

    It's true though. If I ever received an iPad as a gift I would regift or sell.
    I would sell it. And then buy 3 android tablets.

    It is, actually! I've been dying to see it and those tickets are going for $300-$600 each. Original Broadway Cast! NYC!

    The Broadway show... Hamilton. In NYC.

    I am loath to tell people to mortgage their houses and lease their children to acquire tickets to a hit Broadway show. But “Hamilton,” directed by Thomas Kail and starring Mr. Miranda, might just about be worth it — at least to anyone who wants proof that the American musical is not only surviving but also evolving in ways that should allow it to thrive and transmogrify in years to come.
    It's a big deal, guys. Where is number8... out at Star Wars? He'll get it.

    Hope we can cajole you into posting a review here. I've read bits and pieces about it from pros, but I'd rather read your take.

    Nothing, just entered. It was a Christmas promotion. Feeling pretty great. They'll put up to $325 towards a ticket of ny choosing, so I could maybe see it in March? Everything before that is too booked or too $$$.

    Stephen Colbert did an amazing bit on Hamilton last week. He had Lin-Manuel Miranda on as a guest. It looks incredible.
    Giving up in 2020. Who cares.

    Jesus Christ! It costs more than $300 to see a Broadway musical? For one ticket?

    That is lower than the cheapest. Great seats are going for $700-$800.

    This is a particularly popular show. It's actually completely sold out-- those are resell seats.

    That was... conservative. This is an evening performance, prime location. I mean... yeesh. (Yes, this is for ONE SEAT.)

    I just watched that interview and Miranda is full of energy and wit and is generally adorable. It does indeed look great. Super jealous, Mara, but congrats.
