Hi all. I bought my wife an iPad as a gift about a year ago. She makes basic use of it for emails and the odd game, but I am the fix it and how to guy. I find its best use is when on the road, not for work as we are retired, but just when we are out and about. I have mastered much of what I need to know to use it, but there is still plenty to learn to make the most of it.
I use a WD TV Live wifi media player attached to my HDTV at home and love it. However, I really need a wireless keyboard to enter data to it rather than the exceedingly slow remote. I have been trying to figure out how to use the iPad as a wireless keyboard. I can do it with YouTube searches but not as a general keyboard for other functions. There are so many apps out there that finding the right ones is a challenge. I play bridge on Bridge Base at times, I also video Skype around the world. I am frustrated by the lack of flash capability in Safari.
Anyway, iPad is an amazing device which my wife enjoys and I love when I can get my hands on it. It will never replace my PC though - different thing entirely.
