I do need some help ripping dvd's though. I use handbrake on my pc and The avatar DVD (not bluray version) came out terribly pixelated and at over 9GB's! I tried the appletv preset. Anyone know how to get this to work?
This is a discussion on iPad 3G Support Group Thread within the iPad General Discussions forums, part of the Apple iPad Discussions category; I do need some help ripping dvd's though. I use handbrake on my pc and The avatar DVD (not bluray version) came out terribly pixelated ...
Now that I've had it for a few days, I'm still totally in awe of this new gadget. I've decided that I can go ahead and sell my MacBook (unless my daughter or grandson whine a whole lot first...) as I really don't need it anymore. I used the laptop mainly for on-the-road internet access, emails, approving proofs, etc. Using the laptop to show clients stuff was clumsy, and I have to admit much slower than the iPad. I haven't missed Flash at all on my iPhone and don't miss with the iPad either, so time to dump the MacBook!
Biggest surprise was related to public use. Initially I looked forward to taking it to meetings, coffee shop, etc., to show off but now I find it hard to actually get things done with all the oohs and ahhs, questions, "can I try it?" requests and such that now I'm looking for a nice, smaller carrying device to help keep it a bit more, . . . discreet, etc.
Maybe I can find a folio disguised as a MacBook????

So I'm in line at a grocery store - not paying a lot of attention to what's going on - about 4th back with a half full cart of groceries.
I open my iPad and open up the Popular Science May edition - start scrolling through articles and up and down reading. This bagger (I guess) - general grocery store employee - early 20th is my guess - walk up behind and to the side of me. I can hear him say (in a very soft voice) "mother of god - that is an iPad". He looks at it if he's found the holy grail. I let him play for a minute or so - he was dumbstruck!
Most probably tapped on my iPad!
funny!... (I have not even taken mine out of the house yet... maybe this week)
The iPad is bad for sleep! Too easy to pick it up from the side of my bed and check one more web site or look at email or check my crops in We Rule.
I am finding myself using iPad as a notepad in meetings and emailing the results to myself for storage in one note on my pc. I love playing Dungon Hunter and Plants vs. Zombies. I am waiting patiently for my Vaja case to come. Should be within a week or so. I have not put a screen cover oni yet - still not sure what to do there. Mostly just want it for finger print prevention.
I am having trouble getting used to iPad capitalizing the first letter of sentences for me. Is there a way to turn that off? Also, wish there were arrow keys on the keyboard so i can move through text easier.
Anyway, so very very happy with my iPad and am very glad to Hear that you guys are happy too. It was SO worth the wait!
