    Hi everybody,

    I've been looking around the forums as of late, because since 1 week I can call myself owner of an iPad.
    I am quite chuffed with it. I have bought it for personal use first and foremost, but also because it will allow me to get some work done on the train, while still fitting in my purse!

    I have for many years been an avid linux user and have only purchased my first Apple product on mac OS 2 years ago. An iMac, which now sadly needs service and a new hd. (this provided me a perfect excuse to buy something else to keep me connected though ;) )

    I am presently still trying to get connected via 3G, which has proven to be a pain, at least with the provider of my choice.
    I have finished my 'first' ibook, at least of this kind.

    I have no predefined goal of what I plan to do with my iPad yet, other than seeing how much of my absent desktop it can replace.

    Also, I wonder what the benefit is of jailbreaking, and what risks are involved.

    Other than that, I've been busy loading apps and music. So far, I'm quite happy. Whenever I need advise, I'll be sure to ask for it here.

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!!
