    To sync it with iTunes. Is that bad? I think the last time was to get the latest update. And I was glad it didn't blow up or croak!:D

    So when I do sync it, will it take an extra long time?

    If you did a lot of changes (e.g. downloaded apps, bought movies/music, imported a bunch of photos) since your last sync, then yes a backup during sync will take a while.

    But in one sitting, you sync, then decide to add some photos to the iPad, sync again, then oops, forgot to add a new song I ripped, sync again., then oh yeah that new movie I converted, sync again...every backup after the first will take a few seconds. Synching will only take as long as whatever it is you're synching. I've done that scenario many times. :)

    Speaking of which, I went to the Apple site and there's a front page message about iTunes 10. I wonder if it's available at this point?

    That's a good idea. I should start doing that.

    Thank you!

    Yeah I sync only when I'm going to update, we can always redownload apps, I don't use the iPod portion so no biggie on songs, also most of my pics are put on via photobucket. So I'm good

    Longer for me, I think. So really, there are only two reasons...

    To update and back up what we bought new, right?
