    Cool news iDan. You should keep this thread around. I'm sure this list is going to be growing quite a bit.

    Where do I find the list, I have just bought my first apple device, an iPad2. I am not very happy with the things that I can't do. My wife wants to print out coupons but can't download the coupon printer. I want to view the news videos. I would like to keep this thing if I could find an apple compatible web site that would let us do the things that we are used to doing with a windows based computer.
