    I picked up a second-hand iPod (3rd gen?) years back that was my gateway drug.
    I progressed to an iPod video, then picked up the G4 Mac Mini, 1st gen iPhone (still using), and an Intel Mini.
    Working in a Windows shop (my bread and butter), I catch flak for the Mac stuff, but no more-so than the Ubuntu guys.
    Planning to have a 3G iPad in my hands by early May, and doing my research to fill the time.

    Hello from UK

    Hi

    I am Kati from UK. I wondered if you would mind me picking your brains for info as you already have the iPad over in the US!

    I am hoping to get an iPad when it comes out here at end of May. I want to use it for Assistive Technology, it will have the Proloquo2go text-to-speech app on.

    I was wondering if anyone can tell me if you can alter screen sensitivity on iPad so its not over sensitive and wouldn't activate a button/icon I caught accidentally whilst trying to press a different one? (I have difficulties with co-ordination)

    I also need a tough case just in case its dropped off knee (am wheelchair user), one that also has a stand would be good so I can prop it up on a table indoors to communicate with or have it on lap outdoors I would like pink.

    Anyone know what the screen glare is like for outside as touchscreens are not usually good outdoors? (I can never see Nintendo DS screen to use in garden!)

    Thanks

    Kati

    shipping internationally

    I am new to this forum and new to Apple, but I plan to get the Ipad when the 3g comes available. I do have a question that some of you may be able to answer. I have a cousin in Germany that has MS and has asked me to send him and Ipad. I have been told by folks at a Best Buy store that customs is not allowing them in prior to the official release date. Is this true?

    Hello from Manila!

    Hi! Waiting for my iPad 3G to arrive in May--- that is if Apple doesn't cancel my order. There are a whole lot of hoops to jump through nowadays just to get one's hands on this device overseas :( Looking forward to learning a few things here. Cheers! Oh, this is coming to you from Manila, by the way.

    I'm waiting till they come to UK officially but I hope they will be able to get some over here cos of the problems with no planes been allowed to land/take off cos of the volcanic cloud from Iceland.

    I tried to send birthday parcel to South Africa last week but the man says he has no idea if it would get there in time as planes had been grounded again after they allowed some flights to go last week, but I never thought about airmail and products coming in from other countries I thought it would only affect passengers going on and coming back from their holidays!

    As I never go on plane I thought it didn't affect me till I relaised iPad's are probably made in US (even UK versions) and shipped here!! AARRGGHHH!! :(

    Soon to be owner of a iPad

    I've held off on buying an iPad because I use a Sony Reader - which I really love. Also having the option to place the books on a SD Card is great for keeping multiple books on the device all the time - space is not an issue with this option.

    I own a number of Apple products, between myself and boyfriend, - 3 iphones, 7 ipods (various generations), and the list goes on. The iPad is under serious consideration, but I want to know if I can bring over my eBooks from my Sony Reader to the iPad.

    I visited the Apple Store and the sales associate said it should be able to because their is a Sony Reader App on their website. But I didn't see it. So, if anyone happens to know for certain it that is available, please tell me where I can find that.

    ... and even if I can't I may still get the iPad because it's just to cool a device to play with anyway. :ipad-peacock:
