    this is only a tip if you have not read the manual ...
    You can create a sub folder to categorize your apps (for instance a folder called "Productivity") .. to do this drag one of the productivity apps and drop it on another productivity app ... it will create a folder and allow you to pick a name for the folder. Moreover, the folder icon will have very tiny micro representations of the icons within the folder (very cool).

    An iTunes tip ...

    I often watch free video podcasts on iTunes. I found out that you don't have download the videos rather you can have iTunes stream it in original resolution ... very handy.

    Never dread a tread that makes knowledge spread.

    I have several mp4 files on the ipad. I use a PC (no a Mac). I transferred (camcorder's native mp4 files) from the camcorder to a folder on the PC. I then added those files to the iTunes library (PC app). Then connected the iPad and from within iTunes I dragged those mp4 files into the iPad folder (left column). No conversion whatsover.

    All except one mp4 played fine on the iPad.

    Interesting ... I was able to drag and drop the files directly from the PC folder into the iPAD folder (i.e. without adding them to the iTunes library first) ... that did work but the thumbnails ended up being generic.

    There are quite a few things about the iMovie on the iPad that makes it a dissappointment (google for recent review from a couple who spent an entire day playing with the app).

    The best tip EVER

    Check this out...works on iPad as well with OS 4.3, sure it cost $5 bucks, but is so very convenient:

    :( you need a mac to use the software. But that is cool. Can't wait till they release it in an upcoming update.
