    Hi all.

    Merry Christmas. Got an iPad for a Christmas present.
    Will have many questions. I have a Mac with OS 10.6.5
    and includes iCal and Address Book. Many details on both. Have tried to synch my iPad to my Mac with the cable provided with the iPad. Does not show or ask what I want to synch. I would like to synch the stuff on my Mac to my iPad. Possible? If yes, how? Also, is there a preference selection for Safari so I can set a Home Page? Also, is there a way to set a Bookmarks Bar on the iPad? If yes, how? Thanks in advance. Hope I put this in the right place.

    Ed

    Consider Dropbox (cloud) with 2GB free. Install Dropbox on Mac and Dropbox app on Ipad. Simply copy/paste on Mac, open on Ipad. When it opens you can leave in the cloud storage or open with an app that's appropriate. You'll have to find apps that will open your files.

    I'm a PC person so kmow less about the programs you mention but the calendar app is there and I sync it with Google cal on my Touch and Ipad. Will Mobile Me work for you?

    To see the Safari bookmarks bar:

    Settings App->Safari->Always Show Bookmark Bar

    There is no home page for Safari. Just add a bookmark to your favorite page.

    Btw, many here use an alternative browser as Safari has a lot of limitations. I recommend Atomic Web Browser.

    It has to be done via PC.

    Detailed instructions can be found in Atomic web browser under Settings->Import/Export Bookmarks->Import Bookmarks

    You have to set a password, then it will show you how to proceed.

    Thanks. I did everything according to the instructions and all went well until I told AB to import. It said it could not read file from the server. Shame it cannot be done directly on the iPad.
