    First of all l am not able to download a book without costing $15 plus not to mention l can,t watch Fox Broadcasting because my iPad doesn't have the right Adobe app.

    Also downloading movies is not worth the effort nor the cost. I only watch a movie once so buying it doesn't make sense.

    I will give this iPad to my nephew when l find another tablet that does it all.

    The Verizon ipad would have been the better choice but it's $$

    If you mean Flash, then yes the iPad will never run Flash so you bought the wrong tablet.

    Books can be downloaded from every online book source available - there are readers for every possible format - so I'm not sure what your complaint there is. You need to download other free book readers as iBooks only reads ePub format, but there are not book formats available you cannot read in other free readers.

    You can rent movies from both the App store and Netflix as well as others, so I'm not sure what your issue is there either.

    I would recommend you give your nephew the iPad and switch to something else though.

    Do some research first and make sure the new tablet will thrill you first though. I'm sure that the rest of us have all been bamboozled into loving our iPads by some trickery at Apple....

    Bamboozled, me? I prefer to think of myself as seduced then trapped in a cybernetic nirvana. :)

    That's quite true....hmmmm...now where's the "like" button in the IPF app?
    To OP:
    Not sure what show you want to watch on fox....but perhaps if searching for
    Fox mobile entertainment or Fox broadcasting...in the app store will yield the results you are looking for....
    After all you have
    NBC app
    Abc app
    TNT app
    Hbo go
    Crackle
    Netflix
    Etc..etc...etc..to find free movies and popular tv shows....

    Why did the OP think the Verizon iPad would have been a better choice?

    Why didn't the OP make sure the iPad would do all that he needed it to do before buying it?

    ]

    Sorry about the newbie questions:

    But how can you watch tv shows from Fox, NBC, and local channles for free or I have to buy the app and the Tv shows?
    Does the iPad have to be jailbroken ?
    What apps should I download from iTunes or Cydia ?
