    i'm from pque, philippines. i impulsively bought one (64gb 3g, black) last week when my niece showed me hers... to this date, i have no regrets at all! every single day, i get to be wowed by this gadget... but my point finger is starting to tire from scribbling and tapping, lol...

    but i haven't optimized its use. i know it can do much more...

    looking for these:
    - someone to teach/show me tips to maximize my gadget
    - free sms app, if ever there is one
    - stylus (capacitive something?!?)
    - facetime over 3g
    - how to use spreadsheets with this device (since until now, i CAN'T! and i'm an engineer, hehe)
    - how to see/edit/move all files and programs like in windows explorer
    - how to send files to my desktop (as well as receive them) over wifi without having to email each one
    - how to integrate gmail contacts, gmail email addresses, outlook addresses, to my existing contacts list without anything getting erased
    - and many more...

    hope the guys here will be patient and helpful... i dread getting the words 'use the search button!' and 'google it!' :)

    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

    Go to the site (so don't use the app) and change your time zone via your control panel.

    I just changed the time - and did it within the app via User CP. Easy peasy! ;)

    Aw, thanks (if that was meant for me!) It's the face of my dear little avatar from an old animated 2-D chat world.

    I found it when I sync-ed my iPad to iTunes ~ it was stashed away on my computer somewhere! I was delighted to see it again & thought to put it to good use again. ;)

    I love your cute cocktail avie and especially your sweet little dragonfly in your sig ~ (jealous!)
