My name is Andrew and as my member name shows, I decided to use the handle "the OB". Well I'm oldish but the name is not intended to indicate anything rude (just a term of endearment that my wife often uses). I'm reasonably computer literate using Windows 7 and a Samsung galaxy phone (oh dear that's Android, isn't it?) and my computer use goes back to using Fortran and Basic proramming in university days and I think my Windows experience goes back to about Win 3. I did a lot of research on what tablet to get and fairly easily came down on the side of the iPad (got my 64gig wifi only iPad 3 days ago and am thoroughly enjoying the experience). One reason, and I know it's a minor one for not jumping into Android, is the naming of the systems - Android? Ice Cream Sandwitch, Jelly Bean?? are pre schoolers now designing OS's? - somehow iOS has a more soothing effect on me. But it was the beaut little machine I got that made it feel right. Not cheap mind you but after playing with it for a couple of days It gets back to "you get what you pay for". But I have already hit an early snag. I know there is an answer in previous threads somewhere but I'm finding it completely impossible to simply transfer my photo albums from Google Picasa on the Win 7 computer to the iPad. I know, I've studied Cloud and opened accounts with passwords etc but nothing seems to work. Can any one in this forum give me simple instructions on how I can look at my Picasa albums on my new youbeaut machine or steer me to an explanatory thread?. Thanks in advance.
