    Hi Adam,

    In response to your podcast, I want to say that I recently dropped my iPad mini 2 with cellular and broke the screen and LCD. I was going to fix it but finally decided to upgrade to an new iPad mini 4 with 128gb and cellular.

    Why you ask would someone prefer it over iPhone plus? Well I have a work phone and need to have a device for some personal work and surfing. Rather than have two phones, I have been using a mini for the second for some time. The cellular coverage seems to be better due to a better antenna, but the main reason is the screen not size, but apps layout on the screen. The iPhone plus web and apps has similar layout as the smaller iPhone but bigger. I got a larger, but maybe slightly harder to read screen but the layout is the same as iPad. I get more information on the screen and I can browse non-mobile pages better. Then there are more iPad features that are noticeable, better battery life, split screen, etc. Also, it may be large, but some of my jackets has inner pockets that fits it, although slightly uncomfortable. The Plus is not a replacement for the Mini for non phone usage, but a more portable iPad.

    Love the show Adam, thanks

    Hey Adam,

    I enjoyed the discussion on DNS. You also mentioned secure emails. This would be an interesting topic to include in a future episode.

    Really enjoy the podcast.
