Hi folks I'm a long term Mac user (since the 80s!) who has gradually got into the world of IOS with an iPod Touch. I have never owned an iPhone. Since I use a lot of apps and hardly ever plug the thing into my ears, an iPad was the obvious next step! Looking forward to understanding my new iPad 2 better, particularly the extent to which apps can share data with each other and with my computers. livfoss - short for Living Fossil - don't ask when I was born!
