    Hi All,
    Here is my introductory email :)
    My name is Stacey and I just bought the IPad 2 this past Friday.

    Glad I stumbled on this site, I will be sure to take my time & read all the FAQ's so I can use this incredible piece of technology to its fullest extent.

    The only other Apple product I've owned is the shuffle and that was a LONG time ago.

    I'm having difficulty navigating some things since I am so unfamiliar with the Apple product (I've only navigated Microsoft) so I look forward to figuring out all the ways to navigate.

    I think first things first, I need to name my Ipad..... Its so amazing, it deserves a name!!

    Thank you,

    Stacey

    Hi all! Thanks for ur replies. I am going to name this baby, that's for sure!
    We'll name her (him?) today

    Funny, the apps I can figure out its these unknown symbols that are throwing me.

    The little box that is open. The box with the arrow. For a first time apple user, we just don't know what these symbols mean!
    Thank goodness i haven't inadvertently deleted anything (lol, I can figure out the trash can symbol!)

    Of course, my 9 year old niece knows a lot and a showed me how I can turn mr. Blue angry bird into triplicate LOL!

    No backspace key on keyboard? Only delete?!

    I tried finding that scotutor app someone mentioned but I think it's been removed from the app store?

    Will continue my ipad2 training! I do love scramble with friends and I'm starting to collect a very handsome library of books :)

    Tanks again,

    Stacey

    Also, what is the deal with jail breaking??!! It seems to be a hot word around here. I am definitely NOT ready for any sort of jail breaking with my new toy

    How I feel for you! I went through all this a few weeks back. Straight from lifetime Windows, wouldn't touch Apple with a barge pole...very anti their bossiness & control-freakery. All the things you mention will be the same for those of us who have dared to cross over... Big Sigh :-(.

    No menus, no right click, no back key, nothing to help at all... I am still trying to find stuff & cope. But I love the dratted thingy itself! Good luck :)
