    Anker Bluetooth Folio Keyboard Case for iPad Air 2 review

    Picked up this case a few weeks back and so far it is great. Really like the magnetic latch that turns the iPad off and on when you close it. Only addition I'd like to see is a loop for a stylus but that would most likely add about 3/8" to the width so I can do without it. Very happy with it.

    iPad 2 Power Cable is Junk

    I've had problems with knockoff cables pulling apart but never had an Apple cable fail yet. I've had the iPad 2 since December 2011. I have trashed a few knockoff Lightning cables though.

    What is your household's IT device count?

    We have 2 iPhones, 2 iPads, two laptops, 1 Netbook (i.e.: mini laptop) two desktops, a 1 terrabyte external drive and a 3 terrabyte external drive. Also somewhere around 6 or 8 internal hard drives harvested from scrapped computers. I scrapped two desktops and three dead laptops a few weeks...

    Upload Textbooks Files to iPad Without iTunes

    Screen shot of my Calibre server in Safari: Type the IP address shown in Calibre in the address bar of the Safari browser. The IP address of your install can be found in the Calibre application under Content Server IIRC. You may need to add :8080 on the end of the IP address. The 8080...

    Interesting iTunes discovery

    Not to long ago my son's laptop died. He also has an iPhone and had iTunes installed on the laptop. I removed the hard drive from the dead laptop and copied all of the data to an external USB drive that I use for backups. My desktop then crashed and I replaced it with a new one. The...

    Upload Textbooks Files to iPad Without iTunes

    Fizz covered it in detail but if you use Calibre frequently you might want to assign a static IP address to your PC. With a dynamic IP being used for your PC it can change when rebooted and other times. I have my PC set to use a static IP with Calibre set as a "startup" application so it opens...

    Camera not working away from me

    With all due respect, if you have the iPad in a case remove the case and try it that way. Cases vary between models and a case that may work on one iPad model may not have the openings positioned correctly for another.

    Setting iPad 2 for the Better Half

    Since I now have an iPad Pad Air 2 I'd like to pass my iPad 2 over the the better half. My challenge is that she currently has an iPhone 4 and very rarely (if ever) connects it to iTunes to do updates or backups. I'm sure the iPad 2 would be the same unless she lets the Grandkids kill it like...

    Split Screen Question

    If Left side is "slide over" is the right side just a quicker way to open another app?

    iPad 2 very slow and constantly crashing!!!

    Well.... Have not yet gotten the "page reloaded" error on the new iPad Air 2 (Thanks to the Better Half) Having fun with 64 GB and quite a bit faster. Graphics are much nicer as well. It has to be an issue with IOS 9.x and the iPad 2.

    How to reset wallpaper back to factory default?

    It could have been IOS 8 wallpaper. Along with setting up all the apps I also installed IOS 9.2. No big deal. Thanks.

    How to reset wallpaper back to factory default?

    Setting up my iPad Air 2 today and wanted to see how the wallpaper from my older iPad 2 would look. Wasn't bad but I decided to change back to the factory setup. Can't do it.... Under Settings / Wallpaper I see the new image I copied over and under "Choose a New Wallpaper" I get Dynamic and...
