    Scratches? Really?

    We have about 20 iPads in the office and 4 times as many iPhones. Virtually none have screen protectors and in a recent review for just this reason we found no scratches on any screens... Some are original iPads - heavily used - some are iPhone 3GS

    I take my own iPad everywhere and have used one heavily since the first units shipped and have never seen a scratch either.

    No screen protector, no scratches here either.

    Let's not turn this thread into a pointless argument about scratches on screens. If you wish to discuss such minor cosmetic issues, please start your own thread.

    Back on topic, please...

    For file sharing I find Dropbox much more convenient than a traveling USB drive that I have to remember to bing with me. With public links I can share files with dozens of people without having to visit their computer or loan them my one drive.

    I wish it had an USB port. I carry a thumb drive in my purse because of the classes I take. I have had to get info from a few of my professors via the thumb drive and it would be so convenient if I was able to plug the drive into my iPad to transfer files immediately instead of having to plug it into my computer to upload the files to Dropbox just so I can download them on my iPad so not having an USB port is my major annoyance.

    You can consider using a WiFi HDD. Kingston makes them and they are very handy! Google it!

    Thank you:) I did a google search and this exactly what I need! The Satellite GoFlex also came up which would be awesome for movies. I'm going to do a little more research and then make a decision.

    I would say the lack of a usb port is a bit irritating. There is also the issue of flash, which I understand Apple's view on, but it makes it hard when so many sites still require it. I end up having to go to my laptop. The accessories are also a bit expensive.

    I love my ipad, but hate that I still have to have my laptop with me when I travel for work. Pages is ok, but I like a regular MS word program, as well as excel. I know its not a laptop replacement, but its so convenient sometimes I forget that.
