Suggested January 2024 10 Things To Know About Ipad Mini 4

You’re excused for not caring much about the iPad mini 4, which Apple unveiled yesterday alongside other new gadgets. Phil Schiller, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, literally spent a few seconds talking about the new mini.

But there’s more to the iPad mini 4 than meets the eye. I’ve combed through Apple’s press releases, read every word about it on their website and watched the entire presentation twice to bring you this handy listicle of ten things you may not have known about the fourth-generation iPad mini.

Before we get to it, just a quick reminder that its predecessor, the iPad mini 3, was also a modest upgrade as the only improvements over the iPad mini 2 were Touch ID and a gold color option. Because it was nearly identical to the iPad mini 2 hardware-wise, the iPad mini 3 drew fainter praise than its predecessor.

Thinner and lighter than iPad mini 3, more pocketable than iPad Air 2

At just 0.65 pounds, the new iPad mini is lighter than the iPad mini 3 (0.73 pounds). It’s also eighteen percent thinner, measuring 6.1mm (0.24 inch) in profile versus its predecessor’s 7.5mm (0.29 inch) body—a discernible 1.4mm difference.

iPad mini 3 dimensions and weight:

Height: 200 mm (7.9 inches)

Width: 134.7 mm (5.3 inches)

Depth: 7.5 mm (0.3 inch)

Weight (Wi-Fi): 331 g (0.73 pound)

Weight (Wi-Fi + Cellular): 341 grams (0.752 pound)

iPad mini 4 dimensions and weight:

Height: 203.2 mm (8 inches)

Width: 134.8 mm (5.3 inches)

Depth: 6.1 mm (0.24 inch)

Weight (Wi-Fi): 298.8 grams g (0.65 pound)

Weight (Wi-Fi + Cellular): 304 grams g (0.67 pound)

With a screen measuring 7.9 inches diagonally, the iPad mini 4 offers more screen space than the iPhone 6s Plus and is more pocketable than the iPad Air 2 with its 9.7-inch screen.

Fully laminated display

Unlike previous iPad minis that were constructed with three separate display components, the iPad mini 4 fuses those three layers into one. This screen assembly process, also known as in-cell technology, is also used on iPhones and iPad Airs.

Because the in-cell process basically eliminates gaps between the layers, the internal reflectance caused by those gaps is reduced. You get greater contrast, more lifelike colors and sharper images that look as if painted directly on the glass for the LCD layer is now closer than ever to your eyes.

Both touch sensitivity and accuracy of the screen have been improved, too, especially when you make quick gestures. Lastly, a custom-designed antireflective coating reduces glare by 56 percent compared with previous iPad min displays.

No, it doesn’t have the power and performance of iPad Air 2

Apple’s marketing honcho Phil Schiller proclaimed during yesterday’s keynote presentation that with the iPad mini 4 Apple has taken “the power and performance of the iPad Air 2 and built it into an even smaller, mini enclosure.”

That’s not 100 percent true: the iPad Air 2 runs an improved A8X microchip and the iPad mini 4 is outfitted with the iPhone 6’s A8 chip (does that mean the iPad mini 4 has 1GB of RAM and not two gigs like the iPad Air 2?).

Assuming Apple hasn’t modified the A8 for the iPad mini 4 aside from tweaking the clock frequency, the tablet should offer iPhone 6-class, or marginally better, speed when running apps and games, multitasking and more.

In terms of numbers, the A8 offers sixty percent faster graphics and thirty percent faster CPU than the A7 chip inside the original iPad Air. While impressive, that still comes bellow the iPad Air 2 whose modified A8X chip brings two and a half times faster graphics and a forty percent CPU bump over the A7.

It’s replaced iPad mini 3

No surprises here.

Given the modest improvements and Apple’s complex iPad lineup, the iPad mini 4 has taken the place of its predecessor while the iPad mini 2 got discounted to $269.

The full iPad lineup is now comprised of the following tablets:

iPad mini 2 — starts from $269

iPad mini 4 — starts from $399

iPad Air — starts from $399

iPad Air 2 — starts from $499

iPad Pro — starts from $799

The iPad mini 4 is definitely a tougher sell than the now discounted iPad mini 2.

At $399, it will set you back the same amount as the iPad Air, which despite sharing the same hardware as the new mini sports a bigger 9.7-inch screen. If money and not portability is a priority for you, chances are some of you will opt for the iPad Air over the iPad mini 4.

Faster wireless

In addition to the faster A8 chip, the iPad mini 4 includes an enhanced wireless subsystem. Wi-Fi got bumped from the 802.11an standard to three times faster 802.11ac capable of achieving a theoretical throughput of 866 Mbps.

Cellular iPad mini 4 models now run on more cellular networks than before, including CDMA Rev. A and B ones, support a total of 20 LTE bands and offer up to fifty percent faster cellular connectivity at 150MBps.

Both the new iPad mini and the model it’s replaced support 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands and use MIMO technology for improved reception. The device also includes the latest in Bluetooth networking, Bluetooth 4.2.

The discontinued iPad mini 3 used the previous-generation Bluetooth 4.0.

Interestingly enough, both the iPad Pro and new iPhones have been upgraded to Bluetooth 4.2 but not the new Apple TV—it runs Bluetooth 4.0. The sixth-generation iPod touch is the first Apple device to have adopted Bluetooth 4.2.

Apple is now a promoting member of Bluetooth SIG and has voting rights, meaning it can, and will, influence the direction and pace of Bluetooth development.

In addition to improved power efficiency and stronger security and privacy, Bluetooth 4.2 delivers 2.5 times better data transfer speeds and claims nearly ten times the data capacity of the previous generation.

Lower-capacity battery

Apple rates the iPad mini 4 with the same ten-hour battery life like every other iPhone model to this date. However, it’s worth pointing out that the iPad mini 4 achieves the same run time with a smaller-capacity 19.1-watt-hour (WHr) rechargeable lithium-polymer battery versus the iPad mini 3’s stronger 23.8 WHr package.

Better iSight shooter

The front-facing FaceTime camera on the iPad mini 4 is largely unchanged.

It’s still a paltry 1.2-megapixel shooter with 720p video capture, but now with Burst mode and improved low-light performance stemming from an improved sensor with larger pixels and the use of a larger ƒ/2.2 aperture that lets in 81 percent more light.

The iSight shooter out the back is much more interesting: it’s gone from five to eight megapixels so iPad mini 4 owners can capture more detail in photos.

In addition to the megapixel bump, the iSight camera packs in an improved sensor and benefits from the A8’s enhanced image signal processor with improved face-detection technology that keeps smaller faces in focus and produces cleaner, sharper images.

Like its predecessor, the iPad mini 4 shoots video in 1080p and is capable of Time-Lapse, Panoramas (up to 43 megapixels), Slo-Mo videos at 120 frames per second  and Burst images (ten images per second), in addition to the usual photo and video modes.

It supports side-by-side iOS 9 apps

Despite its smaller canvas, Apple says the iPad mini 4 supports new multitasking modes in iOS 9: Slide Over, Split View and Picture in Picture.

It might have 2GB of RAM It doesn’t fit iPad mini 3 cases

Due to the switch to an iPad Air-like design and a thinner, slightly taller appearance, existing cases for the third-generation iPad mini won’t fit the new tablet.

If you’re in the market for a case for your iPad mini 4, check out Apple’s redesigned Smart Covers and Silicone Cases designed just for the iPad mini 4 and available in a range of new colors, or wait a little until third-party cases hit.

Summing up

Despite nearly a dozen hardware improvements, most of them minor, evolutionary improvements, the iPad mini 4 received little to no love at Apple’s event yesterday.

Provided in the same Silver, Space Gray and Gold finishes like before, the iPad mini 4 is available now from the Apple Online Store and other outlets.

The tablet is priced at $399/$499/$599 for the 16GB/64GB/128GB Wi-Fi-only models. Wi-Fi + Cellular editions are an extra $130.

10 Things We Want To See In Microsoft’s Surface Mini

If Microsoft indeed intends to release a shrunk-down Surface Mini this month, as an invite for a “small” Surface event suggests, merely downsizing the tablet’s design to fit an 8-inch frame ain’t going to cut it. Sure, the Surface Pro 2 and Surface 2 are beautiful pieces of kit, but they’re made for big-screen productivity—the Surface Pro is essentially an Ultrabook without a keyboard. That experience won’t translate well to a smaller form factor, better suited for content consumption than content creation.

But how can Microsoft honor the natural strengths of the 8-inch form factor while still staying true to the Surface ethos? Here’s what I’m hoping to see in the Surface Mini.

1. An LTE option

Microsoft’s been skimpy on the portable connectivity options for the Surface line thus far. While an LTE-equipped Surface 2 was released in March, that’s the only of four Surface models to sport a cellular modem. And that’s fine! 10-inch tablets tend to stay in one spot—be it a living room or office—and that spot tends to have Wi-Fi.

An 8-inch tablet is a different beast all together, though—and one much more likely to be tossed into a travel bag for on-the-go email or Netflix sessions. Microsoft should offer a Wi-Fi-only version of the Surface Mini for budget-conscious folks, but an LTE upgrade is essential, especially given Surface’s portable productivity focus. Getting things done often means checking Outlook or answering Skype messages on the bus.

2. Thinner, lighter, longer-lasting design

The Surface 2 is thick and roughly 1.5 lbs—far bulkier than the iPad Air. The Surface Mini needs to be more mindful of the space it consumes.

The Surface and Surface Pro aren’t technically bulky, but they aren’t all that svelte, either. Mass reduction matters in tablets, and doubly so in travel-ready 8-inch tablets. I’m hoping Microsoft skips the full-fledged Core processors in favor of something much more energy-efficient. Maybe even…

3. Mobile-first ARM processors and Windows RT

Yes, ARM processors. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 chips are blazing-fast and utterly enduring. All the other 8-inch Windows tablets available now have turned to Intel’s Atom processors, which are built using the PC-focused x86 architecture and thus allow access to the full version of Windows 8, but let me tell you something: Using the desktop on a small tablet sucks. Poking at microscopic menus and pinching-and-zooming all the time to make things legible gets real old, real fast.

Windows Store apps, like the Bing Finance app baked into Windows 8.1, sport designs with large, finger-friendly interface elements, unlike mouse-oriented desktops programs.

If Windows RT can shine anywhere right now, it’s on a Surface Mini.

4. Office apps

Windows RT ships with Office 2013, including Outlook, but Office is a must-have preload for the Surface Mini even if Microsoft decides to go with an Atom processor and Windows 8. Beta access to the touch-first versions of Office currently in development would be a great addition—especially if the next suggestion comes to fruition.

5. A digital pen

The Surface Pro’s digitizing pen. 

6. A thoughtful app experience

Tablets are all about the apps. Microsoft’s Windows Store lags behind Apple’s App Store and Google Play, but Microsoft could help the Surface Mini’s use case by providing a thoughtful, tailored Start screen, rather than the stock Windows 8.1 Live Tile jumble.

Give prime positions to the Video, Music, Games, Reading List, and Bing News apps, as those apps translate wonderfully to the small-screen experience. Make sure shortcuts to Office are there, and that OneDrive and Skype stand out.


If the Surface Mini does focus on note-taking, preloading OneNote and giving it a star spot on the Start screen is a no-brainer.

But don’t stop at that! Preload non-stock apps that would show well on a Surface Mini. Give OneNote prominent placement to highlight the digitizing pen’s potential. Add Xbox Smartglass so that you can control your Microsoft console with your tablet. Install Nook (or the mysterious “Microsoft Consumer Reader”) to provide a great reading experience out of the box, as small tablets and e-books go together better than rum and coke. Toss in Halo: Spartan Assault and Skulls of the Shogun to emphasize the gaming chops of small slates and drive home the Windows ecosystem’s new universal app capabilities. And don’t forget the oh-so-wonderful Fresh Paint!

7. An onramp to the Windows ecosystem

Microsoft’s pushing devices and services these days, so it makes sense for the company to push its ecosystem in the consumption-friendly Surface Mini. Plus, doing so could be a nice bonus for buyers. I’d like to see the Surface Mini include some free credit toward Microsoft’s Video and Music stores, and perhaps even a small amount to the Windows Store itself. Maybe the Windows Store credit code could be included in that “suggested app” email I just mentioned?

Microsoft’s Xbox Music, Games, and Video (picture) apps are chock-full of media—and small tablets excel for media consumption. Why not toss in some store credit to introduce folks to the stores?

Extra OneDrive space would also be a boon. With small tablets being so storage-constrained and cloud-focused, a permanent 10GB-plus boost to your OneDrive storage would be a gracious “Thanks for buying” to folks who pick up the Surface Mini. Alas, a OneDrive bump is more likely to be a temporary boost, forcing buyers either to pay up or have their docs revert to read-only mode when it comes time to renew. That’s the route Microsoft took when it handed out 200GB of free SkyDrive space to Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 buyers—a generous total, but one that disappears two years after purchase.

8. The build quality we expect…

The Surface line is known for its eye-catching VaporMg chassis, vibrant 1080p displays, and abundant-for-a-tablet port options. Keep it up Microsoft! (But don’t forget the thin-and-light tip from earlier.)

9. …but without the kickstand or Touch Cover accessories

Acer’s 8-inch Iconia W4 Windows tablet, complete with ridonkulous keyboard accessory. 

Yes, the first wave of Surface devices are famous for their Touch Cover and kickstand, but those icons simply have no place on a tiny tablet unless they’re nestled in a proper tablet dock and being used as a PC proper. Play to the Surface Mini’s strengths; don’t shoehorn it into being something it’s not.

10. A more Windows Phone-like virtual keyboard

Windows 8.1’s virtual keyboard isn’t a complete stinker, but it isn’t a standout either. I’d love to see a variant of Windows Phone 8.1’s stellar Word Flow keyboard—complete with swipe-typing capabilities missing from Windows 8.1 proper—appear on the Surface Mini. It’s a borderline must-have for the tablet, which—as I’ve already said—won’t play all that well with physical keyboard accessories.

Don’t expect it to be cheap!

If Microsoft implements even just a few of these features—the continued Surface build quality and the widely rumored digital pen, say—there’s no way that the tiny tablet will be priced as cheaply as a Nexus 7 or Kindle Fire, unless Microsoft takes a big loss on each slate simply to kickstart the Windows ecosystem.

Yes, Microsoft’s mini-tablet has room to rise to the surface in a sea of tablets, as Windows Phone’s Cortana says. But to be truly successful, the Surface Mini needs to bring a thoughtful, differentiated approach to the table while still making sure the 8-inch slate doesn’t completely obliterate the bank. We’ll know May 20!

Google Pixel 4: The 5 Things You Really Need To Know

Google finally unveiled the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL at its Made By Google event in New York City today, and frankly, there weren’t many surprises left after months of leaks and teases, many by Google itself.

Here are five things you need to know about the new Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL.

Dual camera lenses, at last

The Pixel 4 is taking a page from the iPhone 11’s design with a rotund backside hump that’s home to not one, but two camera lenses. Finally. Google leans heavily on software tricks to power the Pixel’s amazing photography, but the lineup lingered on a single camera lens for far too long now.


Both the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL will be outfitted with a 12MP dual-pixel sensor as well as a new 16MP telephoto camera—not a wide-angle lens. They’re “roughly 2x” and support Google’s Super Res Zoom technology.

Google is pairing the multi-lens setup with its computational photography chops to support features like Live HDR+, White Balancing for truer colors, and Dual-Camera Exposure—all in real time. You’ll have separate sliders for shadows and brightness while you compose your shots.


Motion Sense and Project Soli

Want to feel like Harry Potter? The Pixel 4’s “Motion Sense” technology lets you “skip songs, snooze alarms, and silence phone calls, just by waving your hand.” On-stage, a presenter even showed how you can wave to Pikachu in Pokemon Go.


Google will include an array of cameras and sensors in the Pixel 4.

Google revolves around software, though, and the company showed a video describing how much work went into training the “Project Soli” motion sensor to avoid unintended gestures. Google also says that Motion Sense will evolve over time, so fingers crossed (get it?) that this winds up being more than just a mere gimmick.


Motion Sense swipe controls.

“As you reach for Pixel 4, Soli proactively turns on the face unlock sensors, recognizing that you may want to unlock your phone. If the face unlock sensors and algorithms recognize you, the phone will open as you pick it up, all in one motion. Better yet, face unlock works in almost any orientation—even if you’re holding it upside down—and you can use it for secure payments and app authentication too.”

Your face unlock details will stay on your phone, protected by Google’s Titan M security hardware. Biometric data won’t be sent to other Google services. The Pixel 4’s biometric security sounds promising, especially after the ho-hum attempts by other companies at bringing Face ID-like technology to Android. We can’t wait to test it out.

The latest Android and Assistant software

The Pixel 4 serves as the debut for the faster, more context-aware Google Assistant revealed at Google I/O earlier this year, allowing you to carry out fast-paced conversations to drill deeper into topics. At I/O, Google claimed that the next-gen Assistant is 10x faster than before and much more aware of your needs thanks to a new Personal References setting that taps into your Google profile.

What’s inside the Pixel 4


Google has never wowed us with specs like Samsung, so if you’re were waiting for a Pixel 4 with 12GB of RAM and a terabyte of storage, you’re going to be disappointed. Google didn’t reveal many firm hardware specs at its event, but the Pixel 4 tech specs page goes much deeper. Here’s what’s inside:

Processor: Snapdragon 855

Co-processors: Titan M Security, Pixel Neural Core

Display: 5.7-inch (Pixel 4)/6.3-inch (Pixel 4 XL), variable 90Hz refresh rate


Storage: 64GB/128GB

Battery: 2,800mAh (Pixel 4)/3,700mAh (Pixel 4 XL)

Audio: Stereo speakers


Of course, there’s still no headphone jack. All the specs align with earlier rumors, so we’re going to quote our analysis from our Pixel 4 preview:

“A couple of things stand out here. For one, there’s a new chip called the Pixel Neural Core that will likely handle the Visual Core’s precious computational photography duties, as well as AI tasks. There’s also no headphone jack, but that’s hardly a surprise.

What is surprising, however, is the battery capacity. The Pixel phones have never blown us away with battery life, and the Pixel 4 likely won’t either. Assuming these numbers are accurate, the Pixel 4 XL only has 270mAh more capacity than its predecessor, and the Pixel 4’s battery is actually smaller by 115mAh. We’ll have to see what wizardry Google is cooking up in Android to optimize battery life, but on paper, these cells look woefully small.

Otherwise, the Pixel 4 should be a good, if not great phone. It doesn’t use the the newer Snapdragon 855+ like the OnePlus 7T, but the 855 should be plenty fast. Thankfully, it has 50 percent more RAM than the Pixel 3, but it still lags behind the Galaxy S10+, Galaxy Note 10+, and other high-end premium phones. And the 64GB of based storage (with no expandable memory slot) is starting to feel a little cramped.”

It’s still the same price


Like we said, the Pixel lineup never focused on having the latest and greatest hardware inside, so Google’s phones usually cost a bit less than Samsung and Apple’s four-figure flagships. And they still do, despite some early rumors to the contrary. The Pixel 4 starts at $799 for a 64GB model, while the larger Pixel 4 XL costs $899. Tack an extra $100 onto each if you want to upgrade to 128GB of storage. They’ll be available in three colors: Just Black, Clearly White, and a limited edition Oh So Orange.

Step 1: Projections of Income Statement

A simplified Discounted Cash Flow analysis can be created, which projects only the items in the FCFF formula. However, a more rigorous approach pulls such results from a fully integrated three-statement model. In forecasting future cash flows, you should know the sensitivity of cash flow streams over the forecast period. The traditional method of discounting cash flows assumes that cash flows occur at the end of each annual period. It may sometimes be more accurate to forecast cash flows assuming they fall evenly throughout the years.

How Long to Project Cash Flows Depends on the Following:

Industry cycle and competitive structure (operating margins)

Economic cycle

Known significant events

The useful life of the asset (e.g., oil well, mine)

Comfort of forecaster

Allow enough time to reach a normalized or mature level of cash flows which assumes constant growth and capital needs into perpetuity.

While projections become less reliable the further they go, it may be necessary to go out up to 10 years or more to reach a normalized level of free cash flow. 

Sources to Project Free Cash Flows

The free cash flows from a business can be projected using information about the industry in which a business operates and information specific to the business. Various sources, such as research reports, S&P industry surveys, industry journals and manuals, and other miscellaneous sources, can be used. Discounted Cash Flow analysis is an attempt to look at the company’s pure operating results, free and clear of extraordinary items, discontinued operations, one-time charges, etc. It is also extremely important to look at the historical performance of a company or business (margins, growth) to understand how future cash flows relate to past performance.

In summary, Discounted Cash Flow analysis projections should be based on the following:

Historical performance

Company or management projections

Industry estimates

Industry data

Macroeconomic data (e.g., long-term inflation and growth rate forecasts)

Common sense

Projections Using MS Excel

Let us now look at how we forecast the key variables of FCFF in ABC Example (Please refer to the Discounted Cash Flow Excel Sheet provided)

Solutions for the above forecasts

Solutions for the above forecasts

Discounted Cash Flow Analysis Projections Reality Check

Confront Sales Growth Assumptions with Underlying Market Dynamics

Be skeptical of projected sales growth curves that look show dramatic improvements versus recent actual performance.

Does the increase in sales reflect a constant market share in an expanding market? If so, why is the market expanding?

Does that assumption agree with industry projections?

If it is an expanding market, why will the company be able to maintain a constant market share? Or does the increase reflect a rising market share in a stagnant market? If yes, why?

Are some firms leaving the industry? Why?

Check the Reasonableness of Margins

Be clear on the actions or events needed to trigger improvements in margins (or reasons for decreases in margins)

Are the margin levels consistent with the structure of competition in the industry?

Any risk of new entrants/substitute products that will drive margins down? 

Capital Expenditures

Watch out for a step-up of production capacity required as sales increase.

Is the Capex level sufficient to support the forecasted increase in sales?

Factor in the impact of industry trends on Capex (e.g., increased environmental expenditures, technology changes, etc.)

What Next?

Now that we have understood the detailed calculations of FCFF, Now in our next article, we will look at the projections of working capital. Till then, Happy Learning!

So this was all about iQOO 7 series India launch. Stay tuned for more updates on the same ahead of the launch!

Toast Redesigns Its Wooden Ipad Skins And Add The Ipad Mini

I previously reviewed a Toast iPhone skin, which remained on my iPhone 4 until last week when I shipped it to my father. It had a long life and properly adhered to my iPhone the whole time. Now, Toast has added the iPad mini to their collection and mastered their technology by creating a skin that will cover a multi-curved corner. The new Toast skins will completely cover the back of your iPad 2, 3, 4, or mini in completely natural real wood veneers.

The combination of technology and natural wood grain is quite special. I do not fancy myself a lover of woods, but the elegance of nature immediately next to one of the most beautifully designed Apple products is truly a sight. Having used the iPad mini skin for a while, I was impressed with its grip, finish, and design…


Using a set of cut lines, the wooden skin curls around the edge of even the chamfered iPad mini. Having used an older Toast mini skin for a longer period of time, I can confirm the edges curl and remain steadfast. The new design looks amazing and elegant, considering its complete edge-to-edge coverage. Many other providers simply use a sticker adhesive with a printed or imitation wood grain for their skins. However, Toast sets themselves apart with their 100% natural wood product, in either bamboo, walnut, or ash.

Once the skin is applied, the mini will not fit in any form fitted cases as the extra thickness prevents installation. To allow for additional protection, the left side has a perforation for a smart cover, allowing the wood to be removed and the magnets attached. Additionally, there is a SIM card perforation.


After using several versions of Toast products, I can attest to the quality of the wooden skin. It most notably adds grip to the back of my mini, preventing it from slipping from my hand. The wood protects against dusty table tops and weathers slightly with age, like the oil on a vintage wallet.

The complex corners do not immediately hold tight. It does take some pressure over a little bit of time to get them to hold. I recommend bending all of the curves prior to applying, which helps make the installation a little easier. Once placing the skin in the wrong spot or slightly askew, it is not easy to pick up and move.

I did notice, because the wood is precision cut for the volume buttons and mute switch, they are not activated easily. The wood is just thick enough the buttons recess below them, which is good for accidental taps, but can be a little frustrating. When fumbling in the dark, I had a hard time telling which of the two buttons I was pressing and often tapped the wrong one.

It is important to note, however, these wooden skins are suggested as a semi permanent application. If you pull one of these off your device, chances are, it’s never going back on. Testing this suspicion, I pulled my test skin off to give you an accurate warning. To get the skin off, I used a hair dryer to warm the adhesive, which made the removal process easier. Much to my surprise, when the skin was removed, there was no adhesive remaining on the mini, which is a big positive. Many companies use adhesives that leave terrible residue, which I can confirm from previous reviews.


Predetermined designs are available for the mini starting at $35 and customized text can be added for an additional $5 charge. If you ask nicely and pay a little extra, the company will provide a customized laser etched design for you. From my experience, the customized products are very well done and the iDB logo came out excellently.
