My name is Allan and I have just bought a new iPad 3. I know a little about windows computers and am a member of the local senior net group in Auckland, new zealand. I have an old power pc Mac that I play around with sometimes but it is no good for my iPad. I need a lot of help with this new tablet. It is certainly not the same as a pc or a Mac. I have a laptop running windows 7 which is a big enough mystery so I hope I am not taking on too much. A technician told me a while ago that I would not need iTunes to download my music from my pc and that I would be able to use the cloud or dropbox. Is this right?
