    64 GB vs 32GB

    An iPad is an expensive way to store media content. $100 for 16 lousy Gigs? If money isn't a problem, get 64. If it is get 16. If you're in any way neurotic, like me, get 32 - the size Apple especially developed for memory neurotics

    Cover or not

    If you have a case that's all you should need. The screen's pretty tough, you won't wreck it by touching it or using it the way it was designed to be used. It doesn't need cleaning either, after a while the finger marks cover the screen uniformly, its back lit so you only notice when its off...

    Best uses for ipad 4

    I like Flipboard for feeds. Does it come included? I can't remember. Kindle for books, in addition to iBooks. If you like reading, get McSweeneys app for stories. Also Goodreads booky network. Atomic Browser for browsing, plus Puffin browser for viewing awful flash content. Remote for...

    Ipad4 and printing

    I upgraded to a Canon all in one wi-fi printer and there was a Canon IEPP app which they suggested. I think it came free. Mind you it isn't very sophisticated. I'll have a look at the other app.

    Newbie iPad questions

    Or the other way to see it is, the least you spend on the iPad 4, the less you lose on resale when upgrading to iPad5. The way these things are going, the 5 will be out within the year. I'm using an 20 month old iPad 2 (32GB) and still have 10GB free. I think Apple have set the memory limits...

    Blogger Buzz: new dynamic layouts

    I've just become aware of this new blogger layout on some of my favourite blogs. On my iPad, it doesn't seem to give a good experience. It's slow for starters, and the page elements float about and under other page elements. Is it just me or is it affecting anyone else's iPad? These are...

    Ipad 2 going back

    I can't wait! But then I don't have to. My future will buy one and give it to my past self. Of course, everyone will do this, no one will buy 3 through to 8, Apple will go bust, and it won't happen.

    32gb or 64gb

    What do you intend to use it for? That might help people answer specifically. I was the same place last april. Opted for 32 to save money on 64 but now I think I could've got away with 16 - I don't use it to store much, and have Dropbox etc. linked to laptop and from there to external storage...

    Lost mail draft

    When composing a letter, draft, or blog post, essay etc. I use Writing Kit. It's never let me down, saves everything automatically. Then when its written, go to Tasks > Markdown Source Code > Export > Email and there's the email ready to send or save as draft. I can't tell what's wrong with...

    iOS 5 Is Finally Here!

    Not impressed. I am convinced more than ever iPad is a toy not a tool. 3 hours yesterday, two failed updates due to server connection errors. But iTunes said it had downloaded os successfully so wtf? Today took 4 hours!, finally updated os but iTunes didn't back up the settings, apps and...

    Cleaning The Screen?

    I bought a Boxwave one specifically to use on the Brushes app. While I didn't get on too well with the app, I quite like the stylus for general use. I have to use my fingers though, two of them, to scroll through framed content on websites - quite tricky to do with fingers but impossible with a...

    Do people expect too much?

    I expected it to replace my laptop; in this respect I was disappointed; I will definitely buy another laptop, it's essential for my business and my interests - sophisticated software, plug in capabilities, easy interactive programmes, file management and stuff - these things frustrate me with...

    Cleaning The Screen?

    When does the screen need cleaning? I've used mine every day since April and it still looks okay. Though I do use a stylus mostly.

    Best remote desktop client for iPad?

    Splashtop and Teamviewer. Splashtop is easier to use on iPad but Teamviewer proved useful as backup when Splashtop On the PC wasn't working one time. Actually I used Teamviewer to get PC Splashtop working again! Larf.
