    Interesting, but for me, it misses the point of the iPad. Never the less, interesting.

    I set it up and it works great, I might start using it at work...it's annoying trying to touch navigate when it's standing up....might have to get a keyboard.

    One slight problem - if you're using the wireless keyboard - it won't work. so then you don't have a keyboard but you do have a mouse. I then tried to install the BT Stack Keyboard thinking that would run my keyboard - nope - crashed my iPad.

    So you are trying to setup your iPad like a netbook then.

    Nope - I'm just playing with technology - trying to see what works and what doesn't - trying to push and twist my iPad to do things it might not be designed to do - I believe it's called curiosity (or maybe intelligence) eh?

    To set my iPad up like a netbook I would have to slow it down to 1/5th the current speed, cut the battery life to a fourth, use a Brillo Pad on the screen, solder a pound of lead to it for added ballast - and install a Windoze operating system.

    I think it's funny that people find it totally acceptable to use a mouse with a notebook that comes with a trackpad but says what's the point on the iPad. I think having a keyboard and mouse on the iPad would be great, that way you can just pick it up and use it as a tablet or set it down and use a mouse and keyboard.

    Ahhh, so it only works with the Apple dock/keyboard? I persoanlly wouldn't likely use it by this is something the lady would definitely be interested in.

    what u mean the apple mouse won't work with Ipad? why apply dont allow it's own device (magic mouse) to be use in iPad... it just make no sense at all.... just image u come home, on your table is a wireless KB, an iPad stand, and a magic mouse... just dock and u are on laptop environment. Once u want to go to bed, just pull out the ipad from the stand and surf the net on the bed with just the ipad....how nice.
