    iPad 2 is cool and hayles66 would like to know how our favourite forum started? Someone called Colin was mentioned but we would like to know how it all started and whose idea was it? Any moderators know this information? Max, Leigh, Tim, any of you from the executive suite?

    Are you being jealous?

    If you look at the iPad Forum Home page using Safari, you can see who the founding member was and the date that iPF was started. And if you're observant, you'll have seen who the second member of iPF was too when he posts. And then if you Google their names, you'll see all the other Forums that they administer. And if you Google even further you can find lots more about them too.....but I won't spoil your fun.....:D

    I've often wondered what would have happened if no one had thought of search engines. Yes - there was a time and - yes - I was around then...:(

    Besides, you two are such spoilsports! Why didn't you just say, instead of making me guess or go back onto the website again and get all confused!!! Has Colin got back with any information yet?

    The lead seems to start with iDan, but I haven't gotten any further
