    I broke down and just did it!! There's definitely a learning curve for those of us that have never owned an Apple product but it's exciting. I know, well I'm a grandma and pretty proud of myself for getting this far, so don't judge me too harshly. :)

    I look forward to becoming an expert by the time my grandkids find out I even have one. Please be patient and I will try to find the answers before posting a dumb question.

    WOOHOO I'm soooooo excited!!!!!!! :D

    Welcome - you'll find a great bunch of really friendly and helpful guys here. Don't be afraid to post 'dumb' questions, either. We've all been there! You'll find most of the answers to your questions if you use the Forum 'Search' button that's near the top of the Forum page. It's so obvious that everyone misses it!! It's a great way to get an almost instant answer to any question you have and I've found too that you usually find something extra that you weren't actually looking for, but is really useful nevertheless.

    But, there are always new questions coming up so - again - don't be afraid to post. And make sure you hide that iPad from your grandkids or you'll never see it again....

    Thanks for the welcome. Yep, gotta show those tech savvy kids that grandma's cool.

    I've used Windows since it's inception so I'm having to teach an ol' dog new tricks, but it's exciting!

    LOL It's funny you said that freebird because I spent ALL day reading ALL the iPad guides (and videos) on the GilsMethod.com site today. It helped me so much but my head is spinning! [​IMG]

    What has been your favorite thing that your iPad does that you did not expect? Just curious?

    Mainly what I'm finding is that using it is like learning a different language...in the dark. I miss not being able to use one-click to return to the screen I was on, especially with short-term memory problems. LOL Since I've never used any Apple product I'm sure there will be a bit longer learning period for me, so I'll have to get back to you on that question. :)
