    I am shopping at a website (Blair), that when viewing an item that comes in different colors, there is not a view of the different colors on my iPad, but when viewing it on my computer, there are different views that I can click on that will pop up in another screen. Is there something in my settings, on my iPad, that I need to change? I would much rather shop on the iPad. Thanks for any advice!

    Odds are the website has both a mobile and full browser setting. So somewhere on the web page, if they are a good website, there should be a way to change which mode your shown.

    I've found that some clothing websites just don't work as well on iPad, because they're optimized for PC use, rather than iPad, even when viewing the nonmobile version of the sites. For alternative views of clothing items, I've noticed that many retailers' sites still use Flash or some other tech that isn't iPad-compatible.

    Until HTML5 is widely adopted and implemented, that will always be a problem.
