    For the iPad. Just sayin....ya never know!

    Mine is June something. So ~ after that one year, Apple won't replace our iPads without paying, right?

    Watch mine die a few days later!

    What I always worry about is the connector at the bottom of the iPad when the charging/'USB' plug is connected. It seems a little delicate to me; all those tiny contacts. Has anyone experienced any problems with this? I've not seen anything reported, but it always strikes me as the most vunerable part of the iPad.

    I have an older Nano, a Classic Ipod and a Touch--all keep chugging along though I mostly only use the Touch and use it every day. I bought the Apple care for my Ipad but am not even sure if I would do that again since I've heard of so few problems and most early on and Apple took care of it. I didn't buy Apple Care for the second Ipad I boight for my husband. I don't really expect many issues after 9 mos or 6 mos for the second.

    It'll be a year on this site for me in two weeks. For the iPad it will be on May 28th, the first day it was officially available in Canada... I had to wait from the introduction event until we could preorder. That was tough!

    I got mine literally the day they were available to the public since I pre-ordered, and had guarantee release day delivery... It was a Saturday, but it was early April - maybe the 3rd? The 1 year anniversary of the iPad is still a couple of months off....

    Isn't that always the case. Happens to me with just about every product.... just after warranty goes so does everything else, but no problems while in warranty! LOL

    So if we're counting... I got my first (non 3g) in May for Mother's Day.... sold it and got the 3g when it came out in the summer.. so a year is when? LOL dang I can't 'keep track.

    Sorry I had to cut you off. I'm in Berkeley at a 3 day seminar (staying over at the hotel so have free food/room etc) and in conferences all day. I'll be back in Business on Thursday but I'm trying to check in now and then... right now waiting on dinner to be served so took a break up in the room.

    As a matter of fact I brought it down to the meeting rooms along with my zaggmate and there were SEVERAL ipad users there taking notes on the ipad. I Showed my set up with "Plain text" app and dropbox auto sync and the zaggmate...everyone wanted a zaggmate. It worked wonderfully through all the sessions, I never took an ink/paper note the entire day.

    Now, if only they had provided digital copies of the powerpoint printout and agendas I could have put my notes right on the pdfs!

    Only reason for the laptop is to use connectify in the room to provide wireless access.... stupid room doesn't let my airportexpress share a signal and the software on my rooted android is rumored to have a sniffer for "cheating" the wireless adhoc so not going to try to tether. We have the ipad (3g so no biggie) and then two laptops to run in the room.

    Anyway. Fun stuff and a really good testimonial to the use of the ipad for meetings/conferences; sure is much lighter to carry around than my laptop and didn't have to worry about a power source.

    I have no worries about the life of my iPad. In fact, I wonder who will get it when I buy an iPad 3.
