I am an Old (89 yrs) an have been a user and etc. of Microsoft operating systems for at least 30 years. The reason I have joined this forum is to learn as much as possible about the iPad 2. I am not a great fan of the Microsoft operating systems nor the company polices; but this is where I started out. Recently my daughter purchased an iPad 2, about two weeks later she felt it necessary to purchase the new iPad and gave me the iPad2, now I feel the need to be able to use it.
