    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

    "A couple of" has always been one of those phrases that interests me. Merriam Webster defines it as "an indefinitely small number". The freedictionary.com defines it as "more than one" so, I guess, technically speaking the OP could have been using an iPad for a couple of years though, I suspect, most of us feel that - in common usage - it means about two...

    OK - I'll go away now......:D

    The iPad1 has been out since April 2010 so the OP could have had it for more than a year and, according to those dictionary definitions "a couple of years" simply means "more than one" - but I agree that, in common usage, most people mean 2 years and I was just being awkward ........ :D

    my first problem with it was to create itunes and download or synchronize and then update...my old pc ( still have it :-( ) kept on saying there is an old version of iTunes and could not continue set up. I discovered how to get rid of it...a week ago and now slowly get to understand how it works ..sort of...but every step I take is full of new problems and googling is good but too much time consuming. I found this website and now I feel a little more confident to try further..ask...and see how it goes.
