I tethered my iPad today to my lap top to update. It updated the software and it took forever. I wonder if u used ME to sync would it sync faster. I am debating trying it. I am getting an Ipod tomorrow. It will be my little baby iPad. I thought It would be handy for when I am out rather than carry my iPad everywhere. I don't have iPhone anymore we have a phone that leans toward visually impaired DH. We have Jitterbug which we love. I thought iPod touch would come in handy. Anyhow like I said wonder if ME is worth the cost especially since I will have another toy.
