    Hi. Am going out to purchase an Ipad for my wife for Christmas and the subject of anti virus software came up. After hearing yes, no, yes, no from so many different places I decided to register on your site an get the "real truth"
    Looking forward to spending more time on this most interesting site.

    AV software does not exist for the iPad. It's unnecessary thanks to the apps being "sandboxed".
