Just joined tonight. Can't say anything about the Ipad as I haven't received it yet but am looking forward to getting it. I ordered the 32 gb version with no 3g. I have 4 grandkids so I'm not going to be the youngest person here. I've been messing with computers since the 70's so I'm pretty comfortable around technology. I've built a few Windows based computers but this will be my first experience with an Apple product not to include my Ipod. I do enjoy gadgets as I've had the first Palm Pilot, a Palm phone (Samsung I500) and numerous other gadgets over the years. I was a card carrying Compuserve member from back in 1983 forward. I actually was on the internet at 300 baud. Think about that......300 baud. I currently have a Windows Mobile phone and would have gotten an Iphone but for not willing to go to AT&T. I'm also a boxing, tennis and pocket billiards fan as well. I am a fan of old classic automobiles as well being the owner of a '69 Chevy Camaro which, while I don't drive it often, it's an old friend. I will be checking in often for news, tips and general lingering.
