    Hi all, good to be in such knowledgeable company, and by that I know jack about this sort of stuff. I do like the new ipad but what I was hoping for was to have the ability to insert the sd card and read off all my technical PDF manuals like a regulaat PC, I even bought the sd card accessory thinking that would do it, ha silly me. Is there an app on the market that will allow me to read my sd card through this attachment, or is that wishfull thinking. Thanks in advance.

    Well what I've found so far in the week that I've had the iPad 3, is that there is a skydrive app made by Microsoft which allows you to connect to a cloud of 25 gig and retrieve files you need... Try it, it may work fine for you..

    Unfortunately, a stock iPad can only use the camera connection kit (CCK) to view photos (and maybe videos? I'm not sure on that...). It was just Apple's way of making it so the user can easily put a camera's photo card in the CCK while out and about and view the pictures [more] easily.

    So, there is no way a stock iPad can be used with the CCK to view PDFs. If you were jailbroken, you could...

    So, the best recommendations are those offered by the folk above or else drag and drop those PDFs from your computer using iTunes. Or, you could email them. Sorry.

    The iPad camera connection Kit, can be used to transfer photos and movies or videos to your iPad, either from your iPhone 4S straight to the iPad or DSLR camera to the iPad I personally think the camera connection kit is the best thing you can use.

    Or you could try the Maxell AirStash. I do not own this, but the reviews are fairly favorable.

    This airstash is actually a real cool piece of hardware. Thanks for sharing...

    Oy you can sell your iPad, get Android tablet and insert micro sd into it and use it.

    I think the air stash is a better deal. The more I use mine, the more I like it. I'm even thinking of getting a big fat sdxc card for it.

    I agree with you. It is less expensive and it is manageable if you do not plan to swap cards every 2 minutes. I am just lazy, so I like to stick 32GB class 10 micro card with few HD movies and some WIP files into the tablet and use it for couple of days. My wife, which is using iPad, goes through cloud with her docs but not the movies.
