I'm really struggling with the ipad, three days and I've done virtually nothing, I can't get online because my laptop works off a dongle, my photos seem to have disappeared... they were there yesterday, I just tried video and can't find it, the iPad won't do anything with my Win7 laptop when hooked up by cable and viceversa. I need a real basic starter kit, the manual you download assumes some basic knowledge... Currently looking at the most expensive ornament I've ever bought. I'd be happy to just load a few books on it or a movie. But then I can use the laptop for that.
