    Ovine my week old (young) iPad. Am passionate about game viewing and photography (what else in Africa?) got tired of carting my laptop around and battling with light on the screen when viewing/sharing/editing photos. Am finding the iPad phenomenally friendly for all my needs. It really exceeds my expectations.

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad

    "ovine" should read "using"

    You can always turn it off...

    'Settings', 'General', 'Keyboard', 'Autocorrect' -> 'Off'

    Thnx, Tim. Problem is that most of the time, it's wonderful so I'll just put up with egg on my face and apologising to affected parties! The solution, of course, would be to read my messages more thoroughly prior to hitting the send button but, no, that's to time consuming.

    Trouble with it is, often the word it substitutes with is not in any dictionary.

    Perhaps worth ian area in it's own right, for members post the funniest auto correct bloopers in?
