Am sitting under a big awning at the beach, temperature is about 85 with a light breeze, I think this is close to heaven! I look forward to this forum and all of your advice. My most pressing issues are related to being able to read things from my USB thumb drive connected with the iPad jack; and second, being able to reduce the size of photos to send them as email attachments from my iPad. I hope to travel exclusively with my iPad and need to put trip photos on and share via email. Any help is greatly appreciated.
