Poll: Would you want the 7-inch iPad in multiple mini-chromatic colors?

Should the iPad mini go multi-colored?

We recently asked you if it was time for Apple to start releasing multiple color options with the iPhone 5, and 65% of you so far have voted "yes" so far. That got us to thinking -- what about the rumored iPad mini? While Apple has been content to keep their flagship products on a very strict color palette over the years -- metal, black, and maybe white -- the lower ends have historically been much more colorful.

The smaller, lower-end iPods have been nano-chromatic and shuffle-sensational for years, and Apple has mixed the exact shades up a few times to keep them fresh and fashionable. Would the same approach work for a lower-end iPad mini? Is that where Apple is most likely to make concessions towards the colorful? Would you even want them to?

As always, vote up top and give me your reasons -- and your favorite colors! -- in the comments below!

Did you upgrade to OS X Mountain Lion today?

Did you upgrade to OS X Mountain Lion today?

Apple released their all new OS X Mountain Lion operating system for the Mac today, and at only $19.99 it's priced to move. But did it move you? Did you update to OS X Mountain Lion today, the very moment it came out? If so, how's it working for you?

If you didn't update, are you waiting a day or a week to see if there are any bugs first? Are you using those who did update as your final line of beta testers? If so, how long will you wait, and what specific issues are you looking for?

Are you working on a production machine and can't afford to update to any new software any time soon? Are you always a few months or a year behind? Are there apps you absolutely need updated before your OS is updated? Which ones?

Or are you simply never going to update? Is your Mac too old for OS X Mountain Lion? Or do you just not like the direction Apple's going with its desktop operating system?

And if you don't use the Mac, but Windows or Linux or something else, does Mountain Lion tempt to switch, or make you even happier you're not using the Mac?

Poll: Is it time for the iPhone to go multi-colored?

Should the iPhone 5 go multi-colored?

Apple usually keeps their flagship lines on a strict palette -- just metal for MacBooks lately, and metal and black or white for iPhones, iPads and iPod touches. The lower end lines get to have much more fun, with cool, chromatic options like silver, pewter, blue, green, yellow, pink, and red.

During the first few years of the iPhone there were always rumors a product Red version would ship around the holidays, but nothing ever came of them. To this day, if you want to add a splash of color to your iPhone, you have to go with a case or skin or sticker or after-market color swap.

Now, as the iPhone 5 approaches, is it time for Apple to revisit their color palette? Is it time to give iPhone owners the same options iPod nano and iPod shuffle owners have enjoyed for years? Is it time for the iPhone to get as multi-colored as the old Apple logo and original iMacs?

Or would that ruin the simplicity, class, and elegance of the iPhone line? Are even black and white one too many options?

Poll: Will you be switching to a shared plan on AT&T or Verizon?

Will you be switching to a shared iPhone plan?

AT&T has announced their shared plans and like Verizon before them, you'll need a masters degree in applied arithmetic to figure them out -- or just be smart enough to cheat off our own Leanna Lofte who did all the heavy counting and showed you which is better between AT&T and Verizon and by how much! Of course, you'll still have to figure out if a shared plan is cheaper than your existing individual plan...

But once you crunch those numbers, we want to know what you've figured out? Will you be switching to a shared plan on AT&T? A shared plan on Verizon? If so, how many iPhones will you be paying to put on it? How many iPads? Anything else?

Or are you waiting for something, like maybe the iPhone 5 or iPad mini before you make up your mind?

Or maybe you just think there's something fishy about shared plans in general, and that bits should be bits, and you want not part of them?

Whatever you decide, even if it's to wait before deciding, we want to know! Check out Leanna's walkthrough and then come back here and vote in the poll up top and tell me the reasons why in the comments below!

Poll: Would you pay extra for FaceTime over cellular?

Would you pay extra for FaceTime over cellular?

Rumor has it, come this fall AT&T just might charge extra for FaceTime over cellular when the feature launches with iOS 6. Is that fair?

AT&T has a business to run and if they can get a few more dollars per user, or keep a little extra traffic off their much-maligned network, could that be win/win for them? Do you believe in paying per service so you get the best service?

How about if AT&T makes FaceTime 'Net-non-neutral and, if you pay, guarantees your packets get served first and you get the best, most crystal clear video possible?Or if paying more meant an extra 1GB or so of FaceTime data? Would that make a difference to your decision?

Or do you firmly believe that you already pay AT&T, and pay them well, for your data and you should darn well be able to do what you please with it? Especially if your capped already, and paying extra already for tethering, should AT&T be allowed to triple dip in your data pool?

As always, vote in our poll up top and then give me the details in the comments below. iMore nation, how do you feel about the idea of paying extra for your cellular FaceTime?

Are you considering a switch from iPad to Microsoft Surface?

While both the well established Apple iPad and the newly announced Microsoft Surface are thin, powerful tablets of generous size, that seems to be about all they share in common.

What do you think about iOS 6? [Poll]

Is it a great iOS update, or the greatest iOS update? Or did Apple miss the board entirely? iOS 5 was massive and gave us a ton of previously missing features. Did iOS 6 do the same? Did it need to?

What will Apple release at WWDC 2012? [Poll]

The banners are already up for iOS 6, but will we get a first beta on keynote day, or will Apple make us wait a while? What about OS X Mountain Lion, will it go Gold Master? We've heard about new iCloud features, will it be just a few little additions or a full 2.0 update? The Apple TV runs iOS, but is it ready to get an App Store all its own? And are new Macs, maybe with iOS-style Retina displays going to be the one more thing?

Are you jailbreaking your iPhone or iPad on iOS 5.1.1? [Poll]

Are you going to jailbreak your iOS 5.1.1 iPhone, iPod touch or iPad?

We're keeping this one really simple, iMore Nation -- Absinthe 2.0 was released this morning and it lets you untethered jailbreak most iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads running iOS 5.1.1... So are you going to do it?

If you're already jailbroken on iOS 5 (like I am) is there anything that makes it super compelling for you to upgrade to iOS 5.1.1 and re-jailbreak? Any new features you've been lusting after for a while? Any security updates you're really concerned about?

And if you've never jailbroken before, does Absinthe's ease of use tempt you to give it a try? Have you been frustrated by anything you couldn't do in stock iOS that's making you want to pull the trigger on jailbreak?

Vote in the poll above and give me your reasons in the comments below! If you need extra help, head on over to our fabulous jailbreak forums!

I'm still undecided. I'm leaning towards my current jailbreak not being broke, so why fix it? Let me know what you're doing while I decide what I'm going to do...

If the iPhone goes 16:9, how do you want Apple to get there? [Poll]

If the iPhone goes 16:9, how should Apple use the extra 117 pixels?Apple may or may not have decided to go to a 4-inch screen in the iPhone 5 (or whatever they end up calling it), and they may or may not have decided to do it by going to a 1136 x 640 pixel, 16:9 aspect ratio, but let's just assume for the sake of this poll that they have and they will -- how do you want them to get there?
