Hello all! I'm a long-time gearhead who started on a TRS-1, changed to C-64 (have you seen the NEW ones? wow!), then to the first Mac Plus, then to 8088 MS-DOS based systems, then to...well, I've used a lot of stuff and am now trying out the iPad 2. I've been an educator for over 20 years and have taught every grade level as either a substitute or full time teacher. Currently, I'm at the community college level and have been teaching here for the last 15 years. My intent is to try other tools my students have so that when they ask me questions, I am able to better answer them. Hence, the iPad 2. :ipad-front: It has been really exciting so far, but not without it's snags. I was told that the VGA dongle is app specific and wouldn't work on our classroom data projection system. (True with iPad 1, but it *did* work on my VGA monitor on the iPad 2, so I still have some reading and testing to do.) I'm positive the HDMI dongle will be flawless...if only I could convince the school to replace all data projectors with ones with HDMI ports in them. My first impression of the tablet is very positive...very impressed at how little battery power is lost overnight compared to my Dell laptop. Anyway...here's to a new adventure!!!
