iPad Air Vs. Nexus 7: Taste Test

Why I dumped iPad for Android, then changed my mind.

After a 15-month fling using Android tablets, I've gone back to the iPad. I loved my Nexus 7 tablet, but I like the iPad and its integration with the Apple ecosystem even more.

I used an iPad starting when it first shipped in 2010, but I bought a Nexus 7 in 2012. It was only $200 and small enough to hold in the palm of my hand. I was very happy to discover it was a great device for work and play.

My main use for a tablet is staying on top of the news. I read articles and web pages and share them to social media. I also use the tablet to consume and comment on Google+, Twitter, Facebook, and other social media.

Additionally, I use the tablet as an alternative to a laptop computer when I'm working in the field. When I go to conferences, or out on face-to-face interviews, I use the tablet to take notes and write articles.

Wha???
I was actually looking for a comparison of Apple's iPad Air (current generation) to the Nexus 7 (2013) and what compelled the reviewer to choose Apple's device over Google's.

This non-article did nothing of the sort.  It's difficult to consider this even a fluff item and was basically a waste of time and bytes.

I expect more of InformationWeek.

Apples to moldy oranges
If you are trying to compare an Ipad Air to a first generation Nexus 7 then I feel sorry for your article. 2nd generation (2013) Nexus 7 should be the better comparison or at least change the title to reflect which Nexus you are talking about. I lost brain cells reading this elementary english comparison article.
