To sync Reminders with Outlook you need to download and install iCloud for Windows (available from the Apple web site). You need Windows 7 or Vista and you need Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2010. Once you have gone through the setup procedure on your PC your Outlook Tasks are synced with your iPad Reminders. Neat. It will also sync your calendar and contacts if you want it to.
Hope this helps some people.
