    PS3 USB Wireless keyboard

    I don't know if anyone mentioned this but I have a Logitech wireless usb keyboard I bought for my PS3. I got it at Walmart on clearance a couple years ago when they were pushing bluetooth. If you have the camera connection kit you plug the keyboard's usb dongle into the usb connector and there you go. When you plug it in the ipad says it's not supported but I'm writing this with it now.
    However, the keyboard has a touchpad built in that doesn't seem to work.

    If the touchpad was designed to be a mouse cursor controller, then it wouldn't work since the iPad doesn't support a mouse.

    You can also connect a regular USB keyboard via the CCK as well. It doesn't work on all keyboards, but there are at least two I have at home which work normally (even the arrow keys)

    It's on the lockscreen. It's the little square in the bottom right next to your slider.

    I am guessing it is the little circle metal looking thing in the cover since one of the pics seems to focus on that :D

    Question: is there a way to increase the size of the thumbnails on the bottom bar in the photo album? Sorry, new to the iPad and the thumbnails are way too small! Thx for the help!

    I wasn't sure that I'd completely understood your question. Are you talking about the iPad's Photo app? I say this because, on mine, I don't have any thumbnails on the bottom bar - rather the are displayed towards the top of the screen, which is why I think I've misunderstood your question.
