It's not going to matter anyway.

 Why the unrelated reply (redo of an old message) to my message?    The 1650 was the largest engine on the Briggs site until now.

Just wondering what's the significance of a 2100 series engine.  Expecting some more info on why this topic was generated.

Is it the biggest, most technological, turbo charged engine to totally annihilate Honda, Subaru engines?  Is it ROHS compliant, not put together in a foreign country with atrocius labor policy???

So what's awesome about it?  Besides bigger displacement and big block of plastic cladding?  If there was a marketing campaign to promote this engine, I must have missed it.

On the Briggs site, the largest engine was the 1650  , Ariens has featured the 2100 (420cc) on its largest snowblowers as the Ariens Polar Force by Briggs and Stratton which led to some discussion about it's origin, but now the 2100 is shown on the Briggs site, The 1650 has  Kool bore (aluminum)  while the 2100 has cast iron sleeves.

 From the replies, It seems that most people on here are not interested in Briggs anymore.

We bought the white one.  Takes great HD video. 

Lots not to like about iPads.   Particularly that you cannot transfer data from the iPad to an SD card.  You can transfer from an SD to the iPad (if you buy the necessary attachment)  but not vice versa.  They're also crap to when it comes to connectivity.  I own a MacBook Pro.  The wife owns an IPad and an S4 iPhone.   Overall, I'm not impressed with Apple products.  They don't jive well with the PC world nor work as well with wifi Blue Ray or wifi TVs.  The more I use them, the less I like them.

File management has always been PITA for Apple products.  Not that they can't be any easier, but they were were destined to be difficult by intent.  It makes harder for hackers to exploits.  I like Apple products, but let me have some control of where and when I can move my files.  I'm frustrated with iTunes as well.  Now I'm used to it and numb to it's stupidity. 

Apple products also don't jive very well with Microsoft, Adobe, Samsung, Google, pretty much any big company of any threat to them. 


I guess that's the competitive nature of the company, focused and tenacious.  I'm okay with that.  Otherwise, the products won't be where they are today.  We could be stuck with Microsoft, Motorola and Nokia running the show.  We all know how dry their stuff can be at times.

Apple is much like Harley Davidson.  Glitzy and expensive but not particularly outstanding at what they're supposed to do.  They have developed a cult following similar to HD and have certainly done well in the market.   However, once one is no longer enamoured with the glitz and overcomes the blindness of the marketing flash, the product simply falls short of a lot expectations.   We have both PC laptops and the MacBook.   As soon as I installed my wireless Sony Blue Ray and the PS3,  they immediately recognized the PCs and permitted me to view images and videos from the PCs.  Not even the slightest bit of effort required.  The Mac took a whole day of downloading and experimenting with various programs that would get the Mac to communicate with them.  Once I did find one that worked, it only allowed me to view images.  To this day, I cannot view videos on our TV via the Blue Ray or PS3 on files in the Mac.  Whereas, with the PCs, it's not a problem.  My wife downloaded a couple movies on her iPad to view on the plane for our trip to Costa Rica.  We never did watch them so she wanted to watch them at home on our TV.  No can do.  Apple products don't have an HDMI connection.  However, for forty bucks, you can buy one as well as you must buy an adapter for a USB and SD.   Just another way to grind more money out of consumers.  PCs half the price or less come with every modern connection required for home entertainment and pretty much anything else. 

The only positive thing going for Apple, in my opinion is build quality and a less vulnerable operating system.  Other than that, they're a PITA.  I'm sure the Apple fanboys and girls out there would beg to differ with me.  However, that's due to the success of the Apple's marketing brainwashing program.

Apple never intend to support Blu-Ray or PS3.  The silver disc is going away, doesn't matter if it's Sony or Phillips technology.  Personally, I'm done with format wars.  Been there done that with metal oxide cassette tapes, VHS, CD, SACD, DVD-A, DVD, Blu-Ray.  I don't care for formats or hardware, firmware, just want it to give me excellent pictures and sound.  I haven't bought a single Blu-Ray or DVD in the last two years, gone with streaming.  The quality isn't there yet but I don't have hard media cluttering up space.  However, I am exposed to much more variety of content than possible before, a whole lot cheaper.  It's called discovery.  I don't have to spend $15 on a hard media and found out I only like 10% of it.  Yeah!

There will always be fanboys, fanboys who hate other fanboys, fanboys who love whatever brainwash them.  They don't make them like they used to.  I'm okay with that, beats living in highly socialistic environment with few choices. 

There are companies out there that are visionary, I'm in support of that.  Bleeding edge can be unpopular and risky, and definitely not friendly.  Isn't that what the western world was about in the first place?
