    Hi Everyone.

    Just joined the forum and have had my 32gig iPad 2 3G since last Saturday Mar 3, I'M HOOKED .:eek:

    I am a contract computer programmer (also a qualified auto mechanic).

    Hobbies are rebuilding and customising old cars, I have a few...

    I bought the iPad primarily for the V8 Super Car App.
    I assume there would be a similar App for Nascar in the US, is this so?

    I never thought I would buy an iPad until I saw the advert for the App on
    Friday whilst watching the V8 Super car telecast and just had to have one.
    Once I had my iPad my daughter had to have one as well so we bought her one on
    Sunday for her birthday today.

    Hey,
    Welcome fellow Sydney sider. :)
    I would be interested to know what apps your daughter like to use. I'm Sarah and I work with the ABC on some of our kids apps for iOS.

    Oh, I'm very odd, leelai, but you can soon get used to me if you don't look too hard.

    Great to see that so many people are joining up. With new products on the market, an updated OS and all, looks like exciting times ahead.

    It certainly is exciting times. And it's certainly great to see how excited everyone is right now.
    No you're not that odd, kinda cute with your little outfit and yellow hair though! :)
