Ok, introductions - I'm a marine biologist living in the UK. My beloved husband bought me a lovely iPad for an early Christmas present!
I have to confess to having been a PC user up till now but immediately on using the iPad I was sold on Apples. Mind you we did have an Apple 2+ back in 1982!
Although I am supposed to just be introducing myself, it is also a cry for help!
I got the IPad just before leaving for Australia for a couple of months. After a couple of weeks I noticed a hairline crack on the front and I immediately took it to the local Apple shop who were very good and immediately replaced it. Now because I had the iPad, I hadn't taken my laptop with me (the main reason for getting the iPad) so couldn't back up everything. Never mind, I hadn't got too much on it yet and I emailed the docs I needed to myself.
I loved using the iPad and took photos with it and uploaded the photos from my camera using the nifty little adaptor that they have for that. Great.
Returning to the UK I plug my iPad into my laptop and they talk to each other and update everything. But all the photos that I had taken in Australia have disappeared! The ones that I had put on the iPad before leaving were back, but that was all.
Please can anyone tell me if they are somewhere - there was no notification about deleting anything.
Also can anyone suggest which of the many books on using your iPad is best.
