    Hi,
    My name is Ben and I am a retired farmer.
    Live in a small community out in the boondocks and enjoy photography.
    The Apple2 is my very first experience with a Apple product and must admit I am overwhelmed at it's mode of usage and broad spectrum of possibilities.
    Got it four days ago and I'm still walking around the house with it like a baby drags his blanket around.
    What a new overwhelming experience.
    Just a little antidote. My friend came to help me get started and he installed a number of apps. He also installed "Fringe."
    Well the iPad was still tethered to the computer and as he was traveling back to town he called me on "Fringe." He started telling me evidently there was a problem with the installation and he will turn around and come back. I asked what the problem was and he told me he sees me upside down. He then realized I was holding the iPad upside down. I still am laughing at myself..

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad


    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.
