    Hi
    I have had an iPad for a few months now and am interested in exploring its nuances.
    I am a graphic designer and so far have used it on a couple of presentations but it is irritating that I can't blue tooth pdf's from either of my mac computers to the pad. Have to email an attachment and open/save it on the iPad. Will they fix this glitch?

    Well, we can always hope that Apple will allow Bluetooth file sharing - but so far, no luck. I think Apple has restricted it for battery-saving purposes (but, I could be way wrong :)).

    All this to say that I don't think Apple considers this a glitch (its a feature!) and, in my opinion, it won't change any time soon. Fortunately, there is the e-mailing "trick" as you've found. At least there's that, eh?

    You could go to the Apple web site and suggest a change or improvement in Bluetooth operations. I understand Apple does take suggestion into consideration...

    Sorry to not be of more cheer.
