BrianKeith, thanks for the puffin browser suggestion. I had not heard of that one & will try it later when I get home. I don't take my ipad2 to work anymore as I found that in work related issues it was simply too painful to deal with some of the ipad issues.
I for one, can't wait for an un-tethered jailbreak to come out for the IP2. I know that's coming and will solve a lot of the issues that make the ipad a "device for newbies" and so infuriating for more sophisticated users.
