    Plus I can listen to BBC radio while reading the NYTimes........need never get out of bed in the mornings now.

    @Thphilli why do you need to convert your videos? Just keep a couple of old favorites on the iPad for travelling and all the rest just stream.

    I just got an Apple TV2 thinking I'd use it to stream family video from the iPad. Does video freeze and hiccup?
    Lets put it this way. I told it to go and stream an episode of the new Knight Rider to the Appletv2. Five minutes later a STILL showed up on the screen. Put it down and went to Subway to get a sub.....it will still at the EXACT same spot....no buffering at all.

    Thought maybe the video was too large so tried a youtbe rip of MysteryGuitarMan......same result.
    I never give up. Snideness and rudeness of any sort WILL be returned in kind.

    I`d like to change my opinion on these two comments.

    The "multitasking" is much easier now that I`ve had time to play with it.
    It`s a definate improvement.

    The printing problem goes away as soon as you install Printopia on any Mac computer and plug your printer into the fore mentioned Mac computer or an Airport Express.
    This combination does what Apple initially said it would do with Air Print.

    I also use Print Bureau, it works well too and has the advantage of not needing to stream print jobs through a computer but runs them directly through my Airport Express.

    I'm amazed how many people here still print things. Whenever I go to print something at home, step 1 is always "Find New Ink Cartridge" since the last one dried up over a year or so of non-use.
    You had your entire life to prepare for today.

    I don't want to convert ANYTHING. That is the point. There is no reason the iPad shouldn't be able to play at least 720P mkv files. The only reason is that Apple didn't develop the drivers necessary for hardware acceleration while doing so. Converting is a gigantic PITA. I use Air Video all of the time, but its not always a viable option.

    Accounting, business, drawings for the furniture I build and photos. I print large scale mostly so it's no use on the iPad but I wish it could...

    I know it doesn't matter to everyone but if our digital pictures are not printed they die off with us. Of course there are services for that...(yes, pun noticed)

    Lol, if it were just me I`d probably be in the situation you describe above.

    However I seem to be printing all kinds of documents for my 10 year olds schoolwork constantly nowadays.

    20 page science report just ate the last of my ink cartridge.

    4.2.1 was worth the price for the upgrade. Honestly, I have nothing bad to say about it.

    Overall, it is not worth the hype people made of it, but I expected that.

    1. I want my screen rotation lock button back. I do not care if they did this to be like the iPhone and touches. I do not own of those, I will not own one, and I'd imagine on a 3.5 inch screen there is very little need to rotate lock the screen anyways.

    2. Multitasking is a improvement but a mess. Apps should close when I hit the button, now they all stay open...or in sleep state. Most users are only going to be confused by this and have a zillion apps left open.

    3. Air play is pointless...to me. Does't everyone keep their pics, songs, and vids on a pc? Should we not be trying to find ways to stream TO the device, not from it? The iPad has a non expandable 64 gig at best. My music alone is 120 gig

    4. Air print is useless to me as well, not buying a printer just for the 10 pages I need to print each year, but hey its there for those that need it...just have more $$$ to buy that compatible hardware for it....lame.

    Safari is no better, I still have issues connecting to cisco aironet devices, I still have issues taking 12 hours to backup, that darn swipe to unlock feature is still annoying me, there are still no arrow keys, and the list goes on.

    I do love the folders
