    Is there a way to change safari from being your default browser?

    I'd like to make Atomic my default

    Only if you jail break your iPad. On a standard iPad there's no way to change the default browser.

    I hear the term jailbreak often....how do you do that? And what are the cons of jailbreaking?

    Jailbreaking is replacing your devices firmware with an altered, modified, or replacement firmware. The cons are that you cannot update your device with the official updates and that currently (I may be wrong, but last time checked) the only jailbreak for the present and most up-to-date firmware on the iPad is a tethered jailbreak which means you have to have your device connected via sync cable to your computer any time you turn the device completely off and on again. Not convenient. Look on the main page of the forum here, there is a whole section just on jailbreaking.

    Voids Warranty?

    Jailbreaking the device and voiding the warranty from Apple is a bit of a discussion. I have heard that it does void the warranty and I have heard that because it is only a software thing that it does not void the hardware warranty. They will not help you on the software side if you bring in a jailbroken item. GL

    I've never jail broken any device however, surely you would just restore the device if you needed to take it back for warranty work?
