Hello, I am Gene and live in Bakersfield, California. I purchased an iPad2 in March of this year, an iPad 2. I like the simplicity of using the iPad but find that it does not quite replace any computer. I expect them to get better and more useful with time. I dabble in photography and am retired. I hope this forum can help with questions that arise from time to time. Right now, I have a problem and am taking the unit to have it repaired. It has a 1 1/2" band of pixels that are basically the negative value of the rest of the screen. No resets work. At any rate, in the future, I hope these forums will provide more insight as to what can be and what cannot be done with this unit.
