    Honestly, they're too moorish. A professional life changer for me. No fun and games personally like I thought it would end up doing, but more running my business life.
    (actually yup, I do games on it too)

    I've had mine a month or 2 now and only now just learning to start putting my wife first again. Well, almost. Ok, nearly then. Sometimes. Ah sod it, she'll get there again one day :)

    My wife's in the enviable position of being 1000% un-technical and non savvy.

    She's never touched a mouse in her life before. And has no interest. She likes the idea, and likes (me) browsing the web, watching the news, emailing and shopping etc when we're sitting together with the iPad, but for her to have one? No chance luckily. She has an old mobile phone and that's as far as her modernisation goes. I'd love to be like that sometimes.

    I've bought her a normal iPod and video camera iPod nano before now, but it's me who ends up operating them.

    I got mine yesterday. But they sent the defective unit. It can not re-charge, although I tried using the diferrent USB to re-charge it. Now I sent the unit back. Hope they can send the new replacement asap ...

    Yes, it isn't an iPad problem, it's the age of your pc.

    My iPad charges from the Mains as expected, but doesnt charge via USB. My pc isn't powerful enough. Not an iPad issue.

    +1 :) Even my 2009 HP G-71 PC can't charge the iPad. Kinda ridiculous, but eh.

    It's Really Not Ridiculous


    A PC or MAc motherbiard provides usb ports for (essentially) data transfer.

    The ipad charging at full tilt uses 10 Watts. If you want to experiment, and test my theory, (you will need a PC you don't want any longer)

    Then try sucking 10 Watts from a USB port.

    If anyone really wants to try this, PM me and I will show you how to overide the settings that prevent damage to the motherboard.

    The end result will be a blown motherboard, possibly a fire, and maybe a trashed ipad, although that's unlikely.

    Use the charger that came with the ipad. Tha's why they give it to you in the first place....And we all know Apple don't give much away, 'twil be hand cranked chargers on the 3 due to the economic downturn :D
