    Hi to all,

    My name is Cory. I joined this group, as I've trolled around in the past, and have really liked the enthusiasm and sheer passion for Apple products, particularly the iPhone and iPad product lines. Having gotten my first iPad over a year ago, I was quickly bitten by the bug, and have grown to love the iPhone/iPad products as well. Surprisingly, I'm still learning ALOT about each of them. I currently own an iPad 2 and an iPhone 4S. My wife got my 1st GEN iPad, and loves it!

    Anyway, I'm always learning new ways to use my iPad/iPhone, new apps are coming out on a daily basis, and I guess I'm just completely consumed (in a good way). That being said, I'm always looking for advice on how to do a variety of things, so I hope you all don't mind if I pick your brain.

    A little about me... If you haven't guessed by my user name, I am a Critical Care Paramedic, with 22 years experience. I've been involved in the education and training aspect of EMS, and have had the privilege of serving with some of the very best EMTs and Paramedics in the profession. My wife, who is also an EMT, and I have worked together sporadically over the years, and I must say that she is one of the best EMTs out there. I'm blessed to be able to share my passion with the passion in my life.

    So that's all I got. I look forward to talking to you all in the future. Thanks for having me.

    Gotta love EMTs!! We have 6 at work for emergency response and they have real jobs too. Hard working and the people you want around if anything happens. You both have my respect.

    Well thank you very much for your kind words. My wife and I sure have stumbled across our share of incidents when OFF DUTY. But like I said, I wouldn't want to work with any other EMT or Medic by my side!
