    I've gotten some good tips from the following site:
    iPad | GilsMethod.com
    There is a whole list of "how to". Now I just need the iPad to try some of these out. I understand there isn't really any user guide included with the iPad. How do you figure out all the hand gestures and their functions? This is the first iAnything I've owned.

    I gotta be honest and vent, and this is the only place where I feel safe doing so.

    Come on Apple, do SOMETHING. I don't care what. Charge my card. Change my order to Prepared for Shipment. Ship it. Something!

    I'm going crazy not seeing ANY movement on the 3G orders. I know we'll get them on Friday but I feel like a little kid waiting for dad to get off the couch so that we can go play. Just staring, analyzing every move and signal hoping that this is IT.

    The first time you plug your iPad into your computer it will start iTunes. You will need iTunes 9.1 installed. Once you do the initial sync and have named your iPad it will show up on the left of iTunes. Click on it and you will get tabs and one of them will be apps and list the apps you have ready to sync. They will have boxes next to them that are all checked. Uncheck the apps you do not want to be loaded and then click the sync box at the top and it will start the sync. Your iPad will show it is being synced and show a slider which can cancel the sync , which you do not want to do. It looks just like the unlock slider, so becarefull. The first sync is quick but subsequent syncs also back up your iPad and can take awhile as you get lots of apps. It also depends on the speed of your computer. :)
    Your logic is good on the AT&T 3G service. I also plan on going with the unlimited the 1st month and then see how much I need.

    I believe everyone who has talked to an Apple rep and been assured delivery is Friday. I have my email promise from Apple too. Rationally, I know it will arrive Friday.

    BUT.... the order status is the same as it's been since March 12 and still no charge on my cc, so the pessimist in me thinks my iPad is either:

    -- right here in town, sitting at FedEx, and Steve Jobs doesn't want to tell me that because then I'll want it delivered before Friday OR
    -- still in China, and Steve Jobs doesn't want to tell me that because then I'll know it's going to be late

    Will Friday ever get here?????

    In regards to the 3G usage, on my iPhone I've been running <50mb a month as most of my surfing has been on wifi. I figure I'll just go with the limited plan and keep an eye on it. At this point I can't see myself going over it.....but given a new toy all bets are off.:D

    I figure to start with the basic plan, but expect that I will wind up with the unlimited at least occassionaly.

    Actually, I doubt I'll even use the 3G right off the bat, honestly. I wanted the GPS. When google releases their free turn-by-turn app, I'll give it a shot, but a lot of what I want it for is all offline activities. Music creation, books and writing, games etc. I'm real excited for some of the full-on music software that's started dropping.

    Anyway, 3G is icing, and I'm sure I'll taste it for a month, sometime before the fall.

    I'll be using this:

    combined with the music apps to make the first album recorded entirely in a car.
    :D

    This is a response from one of our members on the iPad 3G support thread on KindleBoards.com.

    "Re: April 30th arrival date for the iPad 3G

    I just spoke w/ a representative at Apple (to add the camera kit onto my iPad 3G order).
    I expressed concern that my my card hadn't shown a charge on it yet;
    she said because it had already been pre-authorized (placed my order 3/23), it wouldn't be charged until the actual ship date (never thought I'd be so anxious to have a charge show up on my card!)

    She also said that the pre-ordered 3G iPads are already in the US, so we won't be seeing deliveries from China as the WiFi pre-orders saw;
    Apparently, they're in the US, all ready and waiting to ship so that they arrive on the 30th; we shouldn't expect any tracking info till about 2 days or so before the 30th.

    When I went to the Apple Store yesterday to look at the iPad (I wasn't going to, because I wanted mine to be the first one I handled, but I couldn't help it, I had to see one) the sales clerk there confirmed that they will be available in the stores on Fri after 5pm."

    Makes sense since we see that nothing is moving from China, eh!

    All the Best.

    Is that 8 track in the palm of your hand? Cool, I had an old 4 track Tascam recorded to cassettes many moons ago. You may want to check out Ben Vaughn's "Rambler '65" recorded in a car. But on topic, what music software specifically is good for the iPad? :)
