    Well, already I'm stuck. It wouldn't let me put the cursor in the large text box, so I am going to attempt to type this in an email and then paste it in.*

    Ive been a Mac junkie since (ahem) 1987. Bought a USED MacPlus for $1250! *Expensive, I know, but it had upgraded RAM... *2.5 megabytes. (Yes, megabytes)

    When my soon-to-be ex husband got an iPad, I didn't think it was a big deal. Didn't even mess with it much. *Months later, I realized he wasn't using it, so I picked it up. OMG!!! *Loved it. Got my own a while later, because his wouldn't run something I wanted. (He had the very first version.). *He later told me his was stolen out of his car, but I later found out he gave it to the woman he was cheating on me with... But I digress.*

    Now I have the one I bought and HAD to go get the iPad 2 when it came out. Disappointed with the charging connection and/or battery life on the 2. But overall, I love the, both. *

    Mostly into games now, though I've purchased tons of utilities and productivity apps that I don't get to because I'm busy playing games or watching TED. *

    If someone can explain to me how to manage the 50,000 duplicate entries in Address Book (on the Mac) and Contacts on the iPhone and iPad, it would probably extend my life expectancy.*

    Sorry if I sound dorky... Haven't been sleeping well... Though the self-hypnosis on the iPad helps!!

    Thanks all.

    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

    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

    Welcome to the forum.

    About the duplicate addresses.

    Open Address Book on the Mac, go to the Card menu and choose Look for Duplicates. It isn't perfect, but it might help.
