What I do not understand is, why does Apple care what I do with my photos on my iPad. I purchased the new iPad from Apple, as far as I can imagine the iPad now belongs to me. The photos on the iPad are mine they were either taken with my camera or my iPhone. Why does Apple want to prevent me from deleting my own photos? It makes no sense to me. And while I'm at it why when you edit a photo does it go to your Photo Roll, rather than having it stay in the folder it resides in, and then not give you the ability to replace the original photo. I think Apple needs to give us more control over our own files.
