    I, Jim Howard, am a 67 year old retired university professor. I taught mainly physical chemistry for the life sciences at Middle Tennessee State University for 29 years. I have been an Apple computer user ever since the Apple II+ came out. I currently have a four year old iMac and a nine month old MacBook Pro. I inherited the iPad2 I am using now from my late wife, who died from complications of having idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).

    I came across this forum when I did search on how to clean the exterior cover of my iPad2. The suggestion was to use baby wipes, and I did with super results. Thanks for the info.

    Hi Jim - welcome to the forum! :) Really sorry for the loss of your wife - hope all is now going well for you?

    I just retired from an academic career - an abdominal radiologist at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem - 34 yrs! Hard to believe - :eek:

    I started out as an Apple II+ owner in 1980 - switched to PCs (more job related), but now have an iPod & iPad2 - we need a new DT computer (current one is Dell running Windows XP) - I've hesitated in possibly wanting to switch - but my wife likes MS Office, so we must come to an agreement?

    Hope that you'll enjoy the forum - great people here & plenty of information already available - as all the mods say 'search' is your friend - Dave

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. 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!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad
