Thanx for having me. I'll try to be a quiet fixture of the woodwork and only reply when I think I can realistically help. Basically, my 10 year old begged for an iphone or ipad so I gave her the latter knowing they are both good tools of technology and knowledge. How much? I keep learning everyday and so does she - as do her younger bro and siss. I understand gps and gis and even trig. And old programming but this thing with 3g and wireless pdf printing is really efficiently consolidated.... And always full of new ways to learn old tricks. Got the basics down of synching to pcs and buying books, music and some movies, now just want to understand apps that do things pcs and macs do, ie. Desktop publishing, storing waypoints, spreadsheets, all cool stuff.
