    One thing that is odd is that while I was updating, I was connected to my PC the whole time. When I started the update, my battery was showing 71% but hours later when completed, it showed a full charge. This morning it's only down to 90% so my question is, does the new OS allow charging via USB now? I can't see where that's mentioned anywhere.
    Whenever my iPad was plugged into my computer before, it'd slightly drain. But you're right- I had my iPad plugged in for hours while I kept attempting to download and update iOS 5 and when it was done it was also on a full charge. Very interesting and intriguing.

    Cynical marketing ploy?
    If you had the gestures via Xcode you will miss them terribly as I do.
    Shame on you Apple!




    Maybe you should have waited for reviews before you updated. Sorry you don't like it!

    Yes, stupid of me to trust Apple not to rip off everyone with Ipad1!!!

    I truly enjoy the upgrade and glad that I was able to overcome most of the challenges and now i operate the world most smooth IOS ever. With every firmware up date comes changes ( some good and some soon to be better) thus if you consider change as difficult then IOS 5 upgrade should not be your target. Just remember that Apple moves quickly and by waiting too long you can miss a lot of great features such as: iMessage, Cloud services, No more PC to connect, Finding friends, Cards, Safari tabbing, notification center, using the volume control to click for a picture ( iPhone 4 only) .........and the other 200 new features.

    I mean, in Apple's defense, they didn't have to even give iPad 2's or iPhone 4's iOS 5. I have an Android phone and I got an upgrade about 9 months after most other phones got it, and even though my phone has only been out a year, I'm two Android OS's behind. So the fact that original iPads got iOS 5 is really nice, in my opinion.

    I lost the cover art for my iBooks from my external harddrive. Kind of annoying.

    Also, what are the gestures everyone's taking about minus the 4 fingers to zoom thing? Anyone wanna tell me?
