    Hey everyone, im in quite the predicament right now. for Christmas, i asked for a nexus 7 32gb. my parents said yes because ive been exceptional academically. my reason was that my iPod, which i use for internet browsing, is starting to break down. so recently they told me to just get a new iPod instead. even though it is more expensive, slower, smaller, and less customizable. any advice on how to convince them to get a nexus 7 instead. ive never had an android before and really want one and the kicker is that my dad hates apple, but suggested an iPod instead . any help is appreciated

    you dont have to convince them. just tell them you like nexus 7 better than the ipod.
    if your parnets are buying you a gift it should be what you like and not what they think you will like.

    Communication, discussion, honesty, understanding, negotiation, and persistence. But most of all...

    You better watch out
    You better not cry
    Better not pout
    I'm telling you why
    Santa Claus is coming to town
    He's making a list
    And checking it twice;
    Gonna find out Who's naughty and nice
    Santa Claus is coming to town
    He sees you when you're sleeping
    He knows when you're awake
    He knows if you've been bad or good
    So be good for goodness sake!
    O! You better watch out!
    You better not cry
    Better not pout
    I'm telling you why
    Santa Claus is coming to town

    just tell them you dont need an expensive toy and want to save some money for them. also tell them nexus 7 is made by google.

    With that last thing being said, using it as a "porn portal" is now an invalid point

    Just tell them you want the tablet, and if you still get the iPod - don't open it and sell it on eBay as new. Or look for the receit and return it

    Why don't you tell them what you just told us?

    Welcome to the parent-child relationship management session on the Google Nexus 7 forum. How may we assist you?

    If this doesn't work, nothing will:

    Type up everything, all the reasons why you should get a Nexus 7 over an iPod, why you want a Nexus 7 rather than the iPod. Print this document out.

    Hand it to your parents. This way they have a solid, hard copy of your entire argument and thoughts. They won't forget anything, as it's all written down. They can't interrupt a sheet of paper. It would be extremely rude if they don't read the whole thing.

    Once they have read it, they will now be able to see and understand your thoughts regarding this issue.

    I hope this helps.

    That is a tough one. The Nexus is a "porn portal"? LOL.
