    I spend hours I shouldn't on my iPad. I'm glad Apple has continued updating the software, because I need folders, but so far the iPad 2 has not caused me to go new. Maybe the 3 will! I have an Eye-Fi card in my camera, so for now don't need a camera on my iPad. I'm a long time computer user (from the 1960's) and have had only laptops (Mac and pc) for a while, but the original iPad is my obsession now.

    I haven't had my original a year yet. Before 2 came out you could find covers etc all over for them. Now the original seems to be forgotten when you go to the iPad accessories section. I realize that a person can go on line but guess we have become almost antiques. I still love my pad

    I thought you had the iPad 2? No? Oh wow!

    Oh, hell, yeah! I got this one for my birthday last year. Today in fact! 45 years young! That's me! I love it more than I did. It was like an early Xmas present waiting for that postman to arrive! I still remember it clearly now! It's definitely my favourite all time present ever! Hubby gave it to me! I love him!

    I got my case at Tuesday Morning and I've seen some at Bed Bath and Beyond. Maybe other non-electronics dealers have 1s as well.

    Thanks for the new forum for us "classic" iPad owners! I personally prefer the solid, balanced feel of the original, truly a classic design.

    I have an iPad 1 and 2, and I like each for different reasons. I still use both interchangeably, often at the same time as well (like I'll watch Netflix on one and surf on the other).

    I've found the iPad 1's SIM slot much smoother to open, because the iPad 2's curved design makes for a tighter fit, at least on my iPad 2. (I switch my SIM card between iPad 1 and 2, depending on which is more charged up if I take one on the go.)

    My iPad 1 also is going strong, despite my having dropped it on a corner on a tiled floor and having dinged it. And I've had it since iPad 1 3G's debut day, and have used it extensively. Meanwhile, my iPad 2 has already developed two dead pixels (the white kind).

    I don't find my iPad 1 limiting at all, because multi-gestures isn't a feature I use, even on iPad 2.

    Dumb question but how do I check to see if I have multi gestures. How do I use them if I do?

    Go onto settings - general and near the bottom there should be a multi gestures button click on and the instructions are right underneath. Don't forget to use all the fingers!

    Are you on IOS 5.0.1? Go into settings - general - software updates and check which one you have?
