    Hi everyone,
    I'm a new Apple user after the recent purchase of an iPad 64 GB. Never mind the user name, couldn't think of anything and noticed all the greasy fingerprints on the screen.

    My primary intention is to use the iPad in my car for GPS, traffic and for a iPod interface to my Audio system.

    So I'm hear to learn and share as I learn.

    What I like about the iPad:

    Touchscreen
    Compact size
    Durability
    Display quality
    Relatively fast
    Good battery life
    User replaceable SIM card (great for international use)

    Dislikes:
    Autospelling
    Lack of built-in USB or SD interface
    No flash player
    Difficult to down documents from the web
    Where's the delete and arrow keys?

    First of all, welcome to the forum!

    Dislikes:
    Autospelling - This feature can be turned off.

    Lack of built-in USB or SD interface - A Camera Kit resolves these issues.

    Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit - Apple Store (U.S.)

    No flash player - Never gonna happen so let it go.

    Difficult to down documents from the web - I have no answer for that one

    Where's the delete and arrow keys? - I guess they figure that with the touch screen, you can plunk the cursor down wherever you want it. If you gotta have those features, you can use a BlueTooth keyboard or use a conventional USB keyboard with the Camera kit.
