    Synchronize problem with PC

    First, authorize your PC to your iTunes account. Then, you can copy your apps from your iPad to iTunes by "transferring purchases". For everything else, like Music and Videos, use an iTunes replacement program, like: Free iTunes alternative-Manage iPod iPad iPhone without iTunes This way...

    Not real internet

    Two words: Atomic Browser You can then masquerade as any browser by changing your user-agent. I find the browsing experience on an iPad the same, if not better, than on a desktop. And on "trying to download FireFox", you need to learn the difference between iOS apps and Windows apps. And about...

    Help with Pages app

    Not really a solution, and somewhat off-topic, but I had to mention it since it's related. Damn You Auto Correct! - Funny iPhone Fails and Autocorrect Horror Stories

    Disabling Multitasking

    If you don't mind a little manual tweaking, you can try the following: - Using iFile, go to the directory "/System/Library/CoreServices/" - Look for a file named "N82AP.plist" or similar (like "N88AP.plist", etc.) - Search for <multitasking>, and change the value from <true/> to...

    iPad 2 Minutes Ahead

    A possible explanation if you have 3G, some networks automatically sync the time of any devices that connect to their network, to the network's clock. I've experienced this on tons of phones (pull out the battery, plug in a new sim card, put the battery back in, turn it on, there's no time...

    Recommendations for a good IM Client

    I meant I use Meebo for MY iPad. Not exactly "Meebo for iPad". :P

    Recommendations for a good IM Client

    I use Meebo for iPad. That way, from a single app, you can use your existing accounts (and contacts) in Yahoo! Messenger, Google Talk, Facebook, MySpace IM, AIM, Windows Live, and more. I use the Meebo site on the browser when I'm on a PC as well. Downside is that they recently introduced some...

    Is there an APP that allows for downloading Excel, Word, and PowerPoint files?

    Skyfire only supports FLV's (Flash Video format), by encoding it into an HTML5 video. Meaning that only flash streaming videos (that are specifically in .FLV format) will work. Other Flash functionalities (such as controls/links, anything clickable, mouse, etc.), flash games, and the like, will...

    Best Fast Terminal Server SW

    USBill's solutions do not provide a solution for this part of your post: Try out my setup. Simply install a VNC server on each VM. And then you can use any of the many VNC client apps out there to access it. Each VM will have its own desktop, independent of the server's actual desktop, so VNC...

    strange charger question

    The iPad charger provides 10w. The iPod charger only provides a maximum of 5w. They may look identical, but those two chargers are different.

    Can I use a regular SIM card in the ipad?

    AFAIK, most, if not all iPads, come unlocked. Using any SIM is straight forward. Cut it up, stick it in, set the APN, and you're done. Of course, there are a few exceptions. Last I heard, AT&T was actively blocking iPads from connecting to their network when not using an iPad specific data...

    ITunes purchases for my IPads

    For apps, yes. Just hit the "buy now" button, and if that account has already purchased that app, you will get a message that you already own it and you will only be redownloading it. For music, I heard that you have to buy it again, and that they don't allow redownloads. :/

    Best Fast Terminal Server SW

    At work, we have a SINGLE server running multiple VMs (virtual machines) using VMWare I think. And we can VNC to each VM separately, which gives the illusion that we all have separate workstations we can connect to. This setup might fit your needs.

    Making a new iTunes account without money?

    The "none" payment option is actually very strange. I've tried it on an iPod Touch running iOS 4 (select "Philippines App Store") and it was nowhere to be found. Later I tried it on an iPad, also running iOS4 (but selecting the "US App Store" this time), and lo and behold, it was there. Oh...

    I'm at the Apple Store playing with.....

    To be specific, each app knows what account was used to purchase it (regardless of what account is currently signed-in on the iPad). i.e. the app knows its "owner". So if you want to update a specific app, you need that app's "owner" to do so. You have to use the account that was used to buy it...
