ok, so i recently jumped into the ipad pool. having resisted the dependency on itunes as an interface, i bought an ipod a couple of years ago. i was apprehensive in using two devices on the same itunes, and i inadvertently deleted the music in my itunes folder when initializing my ipad. live and learn... i was initially waiting to see what hp's slate would bring, but the ipad's form factor and function was too attractive. i'll be browsing this site to hear what and how other owners are doing to improve or enhance the ipad experience. see you all around!
