    Hi, my name is Nancy and I got my iPad about 1 week ago. It was a real struggle deciding if I should get it now or wait a few months, based on speculation, and hold out for the iPad3. Well, I'm thrilled even more than I thought I would be. The school where I teach has supplied all students and teachers with MacBooks that are wonderful, so while I thought an iPad would be nice I never dreamed it would be as useful as it is!

    Anyway, as a new user I have lots of questions and I'll be scouring the forum for answers!

    I'll considering getting the Pages app, but I haven't confirmed yet if I can open and edit a document that I receive, on my iPad, and then edit it.

    Happy as a lark,
    Nancy

    Hello :-D. No, actually public school- just a big technology initiative. And it is nice but FAR from all roses. We are able to do amazing things but at the same time we have now seen a dramatic rise in bullying, harassment and fighting. For some (the minority) it has been the equivalent of give the keys to a muscle car to a 10 year old with the only instructions being "drive carefully."

    Pros and cons in everything, right? ;-)

    Too bad humans can't truly interface with machines. Get more in touch with our logical side so we're ruled less by emotions. AA

    Thank you for the welcome. I'll be hitting the search function a lot. My school sees a lot of cyber bullying, theft of and misuse of electronics. Add raw emotion and a super-sized helping of hormones and you've got yourself all ingredients necessary for a Hallmark, after-school-special. The admiral is quite right!

    Nice to meet you all!
    Nancy
