    Hi..as a newbie to forums please excuse my lack of etiquette. I have a 64gb 3G iPad 2 and I still get the checkerboard scrolling down or even up on a website like engadget. I had thought this had been rectified and wondered if you have the same issues or is mine a faulty iPad 2.

    Any feedback would be so helpful as I dont want to waste one of my days off to go the genius bar.

    Thanks Rob

    It probably means that you've got a relatively slow data download speed. It's not a problem with the iPad, it's a connection/data throughput issue.

    Ios 5 will be avaiable in 'the fall'...so I'm guessing September alongside the new iPhone.

    SO...will I be able to get iOS 5 without having a Mac? I heard it would "free me" from hooking my ipad 2 up to my ancient laptop

    You will need a computer and iTunes to install ios 5 but once iOS 5 is installed, you would not a computer to update iPad software.
