    Hi all, I'm predominantly an android user but in a couple of weeks am getting an ipad, don't know which one, through my work. I'm hoping that people here will be very nice and welcome me and be patient with my many questions as i have never owned anything apple before. :)

    Thanks for the warm welcome, I will be back when I get my new toy but in the mean time I am reading through the threads to find things I might need to know. I work in a school and all our students in year 9 (13-14 year old) are being issued with ipads so obviously the teachers and support staff need them too, that's where I come in. I probably won't use it as much as the teachers as i run the referral room (bad behaviour room) but will get year 9's in there from time to time so have to have one! Fun times ahead I'm sure.

    An iPad? Heck no, go Android because it is superior. The iPad will not play video and there are only 45 applications available. Wait untill screen resolution is greater than 400 x 600. I hear Apple is working on built-in audio and a full color screen, too.

    No, wait . . . wrong forum.

    The iPad is nice, too.:D

    OK, here is my wife, me, our beloved pussy cat, my bestest pal in the world and our new born child named Trollina. Can you see the problem? and you men, stay away from that woman of mine because I love her so. You can have the kid, however.

    You forgot that if someone wants to join the millions of other high income earners that discovered the benefits of an Amway Deal;ership, they should come to me, first. Before the feds come and get me because I deserve it.
