    Yes , it looks like I'll be using my new iPad instead of my net book . Just learning the thing right now but the manual is decent so no problems so far. I will be using the cloud for file storage ( photo,video,documents etc.) and wondered what online file storage recommendations some of you might have for iPad/windows 7 pc use.

    Thanks, this looks like a great forum and good bunch of folks.

    A lot of people here use the online storage "Dropbox." The app is free in the App Store and you can sign up for a free Dropbox account (you get 2GB of free storage ... have to pay an annual fee for more storage). You download a small program from Dropbox onto your PC, which makes access to your Dropbox just like opening a folder in Windows Explorer. You can drag and drop files all day long, with the only limits the actual time it takes to upload the file. In addition, you can use any computer to access your Dropbox account on the web, so you're not tied to just using it on your home system.

    I use Dropbox and it works great with my Windows 7 computer and my iDevices.

    Can you tell I really, really like this online service? :)

    Welcome. I prefer box to dropbox because you get 5 GB of Storage rather than 2 GB of storage. Also, it is just as easy to use and there is an app available.
