    I joined looking for help in getting my iPad to sync with my windows7 calendar. So far I've found some confusing new "jargon" terms...jailbreaking???....iSlate???...trackbacks????tags??? Maybe it's true...cyber space is no place for seniors.

    When your ipad is plugged in just select it from the column on the left. Then you just click the info tab scroll down and you will see where to select sync calandars.

    don't worry about the jargon terms. As you can see from the responses above, people will help you with good ideas without you needing to know the latest and greatest buzz words. My kid AND my 80-year-old Dad both love the iPad.

    Thanks...but that doesn't work. I think it must have to do with windows 7...i see "outalook" as a sync option...but 7 now calls it Windows Live...somehow it must be different.

    Thanks for the encouragement. I like my iPad too. I just can't seem to figure out what the socalled "HELP" responses are talking about. I'm ready to give up on syncing my calendar.
