Did you actually read the user guide/instructions when you got your iPad?

    Well for anyone who had an "iDevice" prior to getting an iPad, you already know that iTunes is your portal to the universe. But judging by the number of posts that begin, "How come my iPad says "Not Charging" when I plug it into my laptop?", quite a number of people who should be reading the manual have not done so.

    But then again, the lack people who have read the manual gives all of the rest of us something to do!

    So far, this one has to be the winner: http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-help/7392-ipad-screen-durability.html I don't know whether to laugh at this or cry because it is so pathetic.

    And epb, we must be from the same era. I just downloaded the free .pdf of this book from my high school daze:

    Like everyone says "instructions?" Don't remember that part...just ipad, plugs, and a box.

    As Jobs said in January when he introduced the iPad, there are millions of customers out there who already know how to use the iPad.

    If you had used an iPhone or iPod you knew how it worked.

    I had to go searching for a manual like document to work out what the "disable auto rotate" switch was. Proper brain stall on that one, just didn't think to try rotating it when the switch was thrown

    I bookmark the user guide for easy access. I use it so seldom, sometimes I forget where I put it. If you are interested, here is the link for the guide

    I remember flipping thru the little booklet but most of my instruction came after I said "Guess what I got" Then the fun and oneupmanship began.

    I didn't found any. So I went to their website. And then I stumbled upon this site. And it's a good thing though, or I wouldn't be enjoying iPad so soon .

    Having used an Ipod touch for many years, I never thought that anyone would find this device confusing. The Ibook guide has some interesting tips, but itunes walks you through most of the setup and finding things from there is just part of the fun of ownership.
