    Hello all - have owned my first ever apple product (ipad3) for almost 1 full year. While it has satisfied my immediate needs, I do realize that I can get much more out of it if my computer systems (3 windows xp machines in home) were compatible. Maybe one day will venture into the Apple computing end but need & budget present some concerns. In the meantime, still learning and thirsty for knowledge about how to use (and not use) the ipad3.

    HOW TO USE IT: go online (especially here), play apps, listen to music, reboot if needed, read iBooks, and put a cool cover on it.
    HOW TO NOT USE IT: break it, drop it, lose it, burn it, get it wet, melt it, destroy it, leave it unprotected, run it over, crash a plane into it.
    OTHER: we at IPF welcome you and hope you enjoy your stay.
