We arte a new family of iUsers, but with School work and other needs find ourselves supporting a lot of platforms and needs and I am trying to develop my IT skills to keep up with it all.
The kids have Win7 laptops for school, iPods (and soon iPhones) Colleen has a Macbook for work, an iPhone and an iPad2. I have Win XP for work an iPhone and an iPad2. we also have an iPad in the kitchen as a calendar/music station.
We are using gmail to sync all our various calendars so the iPad in the kitchen can give an overview of everyone's schedule (or we can add details as needed to each or all calendar) the kids and I have Outlook and sync notes, calendar and contacts from that. We have a family iTunes account that5 we use fro apps, music, podcasts, iTunesU etc.
I'm still struggling with teh segregation of each of our personal info as synced into the collective. Colleen also wants to use the cloud but the rest of us don't yet.
We've also noticed the Wifi gets very sluggish when we're all at home.
Is there anyone else that's further down thre track and can share how they set up or managed all the information traffic?
