I purchased the 3rd gen iPad on the launch date - and broke a lifetime of rules about electronics. ie: never buy on awhim and it's the first Apple product I've owned! My daughter has an iPod and my son and husband have MacBook Pros. I use a PC. The learning curve has been interesting to say the least. When I found this site I had already found how to do numerous things and now have the iPad replacing the Palm Handheld I've used for over ten years. I've read the tips and tricks section here for the iPad and the one for the new OS. Thanks for the great tips which make the functionality of the iPad more convenient. Hope to learn more as I read on.
