    Hello from England-land

    I don't even have my iPad yet (coming monday 11th October), but i'm making a pre-emptive strike on this forum.

    I'm mostly here to learn, and find out about good apps.

    I'll be using it as an e-reader, movie player, email, web browsing (duh), and for viewing photos on in the house. and tethered to my phone for mobile web browsing on the train.

    16GB WiFi Looking forward to Monday.

    Welcome to the forum Barry,many people here from the UK.

    There was an old man from Leeds
    Who swallowed a packet of seeds,
    Out of his ... grew two blades of grass
    And out of his..... grew weeds.

    I bet you have heard that a time or two.

    Honestly, never before in my life

    Just going to poke around. I've already leaned a few things from here at work earlier.

    Don't just read the active forums but trawl through the older posts as there's lot of good stuff there.

    Can you tether a stock wi-fi iPad to a phone? I was under the impression you couldn't.

    Hi! by the way, from the Right side of the Pennines.

    Welcome! This is a good place, innit?

    I use GoodReader for my general storage and videos that I don't want or need in iTunes, and AirVideo for live streaming my all formats from my laptop when I'm on my local network.

    Thanks a lot for the AirVideo tip. I've got a lot of TV shows on my desktop that i want to watch around my house.

    Sorry, i meant that i was going to use the 'tethering' feature of my phone and turn it into a wifi hotspot and just connect from the iPad over standard wifi.
