Episode Description 
Do you need Apple's new iPad Mini, a shrunken version of the iPad? No you don't need it. What you need is love, fulfillment, security and good health. So the question should be, will you want the iPad's smaller sibling? Apple stresses that the smaller screen is still the same shape as the bigger iPad. This means apps for the regular iPad will fit fine. Plus Apple claims web pages fit better on its screens than they do on rival tablets which look a little squeezed by comparison. What the Mini iPad does squeeze is your wallet.  They want $329 for the base model. That price tag is at the tippy-top of predictions.
