    Upgrading To Ipad Air

    Moving from Gen 1 to Air I've had the original iPad for 3 1/2 years, using it nearly every day. Just last night I took it to Target for their trade-in deal. Got a $200 Target gift card that I'll be applying toward the Air. My original was Wi-fi 64Gb and that's what I'll get with the Air also...

    Ipad air case

    jimt29, What a great idea! I'm going to order one from Amazon. There it was listed for $1.99 + $4.99 shipping.

    Voice control app for music?

    What are using your iPad for that you didn't expect?

    Two uses I did not anticipate: 1) A remote control and Guide browser for DirecTV 2) Hook up bass pedal, headphones, and bass and use Amazing Slow Downer to learn songs on my bass. All without disturbing anyone else. I even rip bass lesson DVDs to my computer and load them on the iPad to listen...

    Sync home Outlook and office Exchange Server with separate contacts?

    I've been searching the forums but can't find anything that specifically addresses my question. I currently have my iPad 1 set up to sync my contacts and calendar to Outlook on my home PC running Windows XP. I would like to add syncing to my work Exchange Server for contacts and calendar. On...
