    I came to this forum via a Google search whilst looking for information on using my Apple TV with my iPad.

    I didn't find the info but this site looked too interesting to pass by.

    Anyway, as suggested, I will set down a little about myself:

    I am a so called "Silver Surfer" although I don't have silver hair. In fact I don't have any hair.

    I have been a home computer user since the days of the Sinclair Z80 with a massive 1K memory.

    Gadgets, I have an iPad (of course)
    an iPod
    an Apple TV
    a Samsung Galaxy SII
    a Sony PSP
    A Wii

    and a Laptop, unfortunately, not an iMac.

    As to my confusion, I have never heard the expression iSlate and so spent quite some time trying to locate one for sale. :confused:

    Hi Denny - welcome to the forum! :)

    Now I've heard that term, i.e. iSlate, before, but must have been ill-informed - I thought that it was one of the earliest tablets for writing used by the guy below - :D

    Welcome to the forum. iSlate is what people were calling it before the official iPad name was announced. This forum seems to have started before the official name, so some of the early posts reflect that, and will turn up in searches.
