    I 'print' PDF's to my iPad using drop box... I dont know if that would work for your requirement, but it may be worth looking into: Print to ipad iPad equipment and software

    With no wifi/3g dropbox won't work as a transfer medium.

    Now that we have no iTunes on the computers, that won't work as a transfer medium.

    Can't plug in a wi-fi card into my work desktop, as that will cause a huge stink.

    I remember seeing a link once to a USB flash drive that generated it's own WiFi, does anyone remember what that is?

    Something like this?

    AirStash: wireless flash drive + pocket media server + SD adapter for iPhone, iPod touch & iPad

    It looks very cool... except for the price!

    How do you access the files when it's jailbroken? Not unless it is jailbroken.

    Do you have Internet access otherbthan work? You could always Dropbox from work pc and grab the files down to the iPad from alternate Internet source (home, starbucks, McDs)

    Are your PCs totally locked down? GoodReader supports a tool called GoodReaderUSB (free, no installation necessary).

    More info can be found here:

    This seems ironic to me because one of my jobs is in an extremely secure environment, and we are moving toward Apple.

    Do you mind if I ask you more about this, and why somebody would just up and ban Apple software?

    I am also trying to find a way through this too. At my school the iPad is very useful but since I don't have 3G and the networks are hidden, I can't find a way through this.
