    Do you think it Will it live up to the hype? :ipad-keyboard:

    Game center, printing and multitasking will def boost the ipad but I do feel maybe they can be adding a little more but I guess we will see how it is. Anyone try out the beta?

    Game center - Don't Care
    Printing - Don't Care
    Multitasking - Good but, (Backgrounder works better)
    Folders - Great
    Find text on web pages - Great

    Most of the web comments I've read have been very positive.

    We all have different needs and expectations of/from the iPad/Apple.

    But sure, newer firmware are suposed to be better then the firmware It replaces.
    I just said that (I) don´t like all the feature becuase It´s no feature of my purpose, didn´t say It was a bad & crappy feature.

    Beta install

    I installed the beta Wednesday night. So far I've been fairly impressed. I have multiple Exchange ActiveSync accounts setup but am having issues with mail crashing for my University live mail account when it downloads messages. I've had to disable that account for now.

    The multitasking is a very needed and easy to use feature. I used Backgrounder and have to admit I liked that a bit better than the multitasking on the beta. Everything tries to run in the background as opposed to you having to select what you want to multitask. I am periodically having to close things out that I didn't intend to multitask.

    I don't have a printer with a wireless NIC but will have to see if I can get something for my HP LaserJet P2055dn. Awesome printer but the Jetdirect card doesn't have wireless. I wish the iPad would just recognize any printers on it's network segment as opposed to needing the printer to be wireless.

    My one big beef so far is that we're not supposed to restore and instead sync after installing the OS. I lost a decent amount of data such as saved projects on Things and other applications that the sync is not placing back on the device. I'm trying to figure out how to get my application data back.

    Of course my post sound like I'm griping, but I didn't expect the beta to be without flaws and really do enjoy the new features so far.

    So far, all of the changes I have read about look very good. I have an HP that will print wireless and can't wait for that. Multitasking will also be very nice. Overall, looks like they are addressing some very prominent issues. I'm sure there is more that they will work on for a later release. In the tech field, its always better to hold some back for the next time. You never release all of your potential at once.

    I had initially "lost" all of my music, pictures and videos. The status bar at the bottom showed that they were there, but they didn't show up in the apps. So restarted the iPad and synced and there they were pretty as you please!

    The folders are going to be great. The multitasking is not real multitasking and is therefore useless. The changing of the toggle switch to mute is stupid and will infuriate me, why would I ever need to mute the ipad THAT quick? Printing function is useless for me because the ipad is not a content creation device but rather a content consumption device. Game Center is meh. Finding text on websites? Yea, been doing that with Atomic web since I bought this thing. So overall, its a pretty meaningless update for me other than for the inclusion of folders. There is SOOOOO much meaningful crap they could have and should have included.

    I have been using the multitasking to toggle between connecting to LogMeIn sessions on servers, RDP'g via a VPN to other servers while corresponding via email. From that perspective I have been pretty happy with the multitasking so far.
