    As a yorkshire lass I love the fact you have an Harley.. lol! :)

    Don't you use the word 'whilst' over there? I don't tend to use it in everyday conversation but it came up on word prediction.

    Thanks for the link, the apple mounts look good, the car mount that clamps to something further down might possibly clamp onto wheelchair frame. It seems to be a US company though would they ship to UK? (I'm thinking a metal pole/plate would be heavy for shipping costs!)

    Its worrying that it can be damaged easily from fall onto carpets as I dont have any. (special vinyl that's easier to clean up tyre marks from chairs - looks like wood flooring but waterproof backing).

    I'm mostly housebound so it should be ok for indoor use ipod/movies also planning to use it as jumbo touchscreen remote via something like mini red eye app as I struggle with small buttons. I do have a Lightwriter SL40 as well I can use for outdoor appointments. Do you work in 'Assistive Technology' field?

    iPadOne. was that necessary?

    I know the spam is unbearable on here at times, but sheesh, chill. Just spam him with a PM telling him that it's against the rules or something, I saw it too but passed up the opportunity, expecting that a Mod would end his exploitive attitude by morning when they get on.

    I personally would like to know what quick button we have for marking threads or posts as SPAM, perhaps a call button to make the mods aware. How soon do they actually see these by morning? not sure...

    The great thing about Ram is that most of their items are interchangeable so you can "make" a system for anything. The stuff I have purchased has been made out of a hard plastic similar to the material used to make Glocks (a gun).

    I hear you on the falling concern. Tether, tether, tether. I would take a close look at your chair and determine the best position to mount/hold it so that if it slips it can be saved by a tethering system. There has to be a case out there that has a loop to tether from. I will look.

    I don't work in the assistive technology field, rather I am a consumer. One of my jobs (exceptional student education [ESE] director and college professor) is to acquire technology to mitigate some the challenges out students have. For those that may not be aware ESE covers students with disabilities ranging from cognitive to physical. I help level the playing field.

    Does anyone have a link to that video were the guy imitates Jony Ive in the beginning? It ends with him throwing a baseball into the Ipad.

    I'll be using it for reading, along with more portable access to all my online needs, etc. As an old guy with neck problems, combined with tri-focals for reading, it gets downright uncomfortable and painful doing any extensive reading on my iMac. The iPad displays EVERYTHING better, brighter, and is more easily positioned. Also has proven to be a great sales tool allowing me to better display some of my supplier product websites -- as well as my own, of course.

    at first, i really wanted to buy it cos i imagined it could replace pen and paper... i guess it was the 'pad' in the name that gave that impression...

    now i'm not so sure if i'll buy one at all.... undecided. i found this review online and it summed up my thoughts exactly -
