    Hello. I'm a Brit who has recently bought an ipad2 off a friend. It was an impulse purchase, though I don't regret it but now it seems I've bought an expensive web browser and games machine. I don't really know what to do with it!
    I have a Samsung galaxy ace phone so I can't sync it with that.
    What do you lot do with yours??

    I used mine for taking photos of my grandchildren, quilts that I like, plants I want to add to my garden... I compose articles for the quilt guilds newsletter, I live by the calendar and reminder list, I talk to people on the iPad forum about my garden. I read stories to my grandchildren or sometimes let the iPad do it. I read books from the library. I watch the Rachel Maddow tv show. I figure out where I am when I'm lost. I read the news. I identify stars. I figure fabric yardage for quilt blocks. I do more but I'm too tired. Don't worry it will be useful as well as fun.

    Enjoy, bobbi
