    found it last week in Cydia.....just had the time now to give it a try.

    It costs $5 but works like a dream. Just install the Cydia app, download the desktop piece and take both devices (yes, iPhone, iPod Touch as well) on the same wireless network and start the iPad app.

    Now start iTunes, et voilá, the iPad shows up in the list and you can do the full operation from iTunes, just as if you would have connected the iPad via 30pin-cable.
    :D

    Must be jail broken and it also is much slow than syncing via USB.

    It doesn't sync the entire contents of your device (iPad, iPhone etc) after the first time you do it, it only syncs the "changes".

    Then you're a ridiculous user if you're changing 50-60GB worth of data!

    Then you plug it in for that time. The WiFi sync only happens once you launch the app....

    Why is that a ridiculous user? Most of my storage space is movies and TV shows. What am I going to do, watch the same movies and shows over and over and over again?

    Sure, that's not even 50 movies, depending on your encode settings. So once a month if I am traveling a lot, I might resync most of my movies. My wife has had hers for about a month and she's getting ready to go on a trip to Kazakhstan and so we resync'd almost her entire video collection.

    Ahhh ok. I guess it depends what type of user you are. I'm downloading apps from Installous all day personally....which aren't that large. So wirelessly syncing would be beneficial for me :) .

    I mean, I have a trip to Germany coming up from Tuscon, AZ to Denver to Chicago and THEN an 8.5 hour flight from Chicago to Munich. Then on the way back I have a 12.5 hour flight from Munich to LA and then LA to Tucson is another hour or so. Assuming I didn't watch a single video on my trip in Germany or transfer a single picture to the device, that's roughly 60% of my video collection right there.
