I am an oldie and my initial intention for getting an iPad was to utilise the iBook facility due to my poor eyesight. However as I am learning more about this machine, I am now looking forward to using it as it was intended. I am in France for a couple of months, my wife is in London for a couple of weeks, she has bought the iPad and I am now getting prepared to set it up when she returns. I do make an attempt to read the manual and use the search facility on the forum, but, not always successful and therefore any posts I will make. Looking forward to your assistance.
