    Trying to learn my way around the iPad, it came as an accessory with our new Cadillac. Have never owned an Apple product before but I know my way around a PC pretty good. So it really made me take a step back and realize they are not the same at all. I find the Apple platform very confusing and restrictive.But I am going to stick with it and learn how to use the iPad.

    Yes, the iPad is not a PC. But the good news is that it is very simple to learn and use, but you have to be willing to do things its way rather how how you think they would be done. For one thing, iOS is not file centric and windows / PC users typically struggle with that. Embrace the new, resistance is futile. :)
