Hi. I'm in a dilemma & I hope you can help me out. I want to buy a tablet, & I've had my eye on the the new ipad 3 (64 GB WiFi-only version.) I was blown away by the rich retina-display & loved the styling too. But I've been told by some people that apple ipad is a real pain because of its anti-piracy issues. I believe that there are a lot of free apps for it online, but a few of my friends said that any worthwhile app must be purchased. Also, that ipad can't play the music I've downloaded, neither the music videos, etc. Apparently, to play music & videos, you have to buy the mp3 or mp4 from the itunes store. Is this true? Can't I play any mp3 & mp4 on it other that the legit purchased ones? I'm ashamed to admit it, but the music & videos & books I intend to use on the ipad are downloaded off piratebay. I mainly want to use the ipad for referencing with my medical books & catch a song or movie on it occasionally. But if all this about "accept only legit files" thing is true, I'm afraid I cannot purchase this. My query might sound silly or downright stupid, but I'm not aware about the tablets & smartphones, so please do help me out.
