    Kinda tech savvy here, not a big Apple fan, but when the first iPad came out I liked it. Wasn't able to get one thanks to family medical bills...

    Fast forward and recently I had a bad bike wreck, broke my neck and back and some ribs and stuff. My sister was nice enough to send me this new ipad2, since my laptop was very difficult to work with.

    Still learning my way around this neat toy. Looking forward to tips and tricks, as well as getting back on my bike someday.

    Thanks,
    Roger

    Wow! That's too bad. Here's to a fast recovery.

    There is a thread about Tips and Tricks that has a ton of replies. I think it's in the general iPad forum, but you can do a search for Tips and Tricks if you don't find it there.

    Hi Roger - hope that your 'neck injury' was not that severe (i.e. any paralysis?) - I'm a retired doctor - BTW, welcome to the forum! :)

    Hope that your recovery is quick & complete - please update us and wish that all goes well in your healing process! Dave

    There are actually two threads for Tips and Tricks. One is for IOS5, the other is "Tips and Tricks - for those of us who don't know" (or something like that). The latter is a very large thread with a ton of good information. The former is a relatively small thread for the updated IOS5.

    No Doc, i'm very lucky to have full feeling and function everywhere. Only a couple minor things I can live with. I'm putting my bike back on the trainer as soon as I get my feels back. I am getting a recumbent trike by spring though. My sister did a huge thing giving me this. It is easy to update my FB page and email. I would like to get to my gmail chat... Someday. Biggest plan for this will be ebooks and such. I have yet to transfer my music either, don't know if I will anytime soon.

    Yes Doc, I'm doing good and tearing up recovery in therapy. I am 8 weeks since the wreck and being fused T7-12. Wear this collar till the end of next month at least. Ribs aren't bugging me as much, and have gone back to work part time. I would say I'm doing fairly well. Of course, I also had my left knee replaced last year and everyone expected me to slow down... Nope! Maybe this time.

    Thanks for the welcome!

    If you're updated to IOS5 you can stream your music via WiFi from your computer. I didn't have any luck doing that before updating.

    That will be cool as long as I'm connected. Neat iPad trick though. Oops, that means I'll have to leave that dinosaur gaming machine running nonstop then... I need to update ios5 soon.

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad


    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

    I've had to learn no matter what I put into therapy, my body is only going to donwhat it will. So I do the best I can do, and hope I'm healing. My therapist is the same guy I saw for my knee. I trust him and he knows how to keep me motivated. Its still early and I have a long road ahead still!
