    How to sync Ipad with another Mac

    The iPad will behave the same whether it's jailbroken or not. When you connect the iPad to another computer, it will ask if you want to use the new computer to sync with.

    ipod/pad sync cable

    Yup, like 1991-C4 said, iPod, iPad and iPhone cables are the same. The thing to note is that your iPad will charge faster when plugged into the power adapter. iPad will charge when connected to a computer (most computers, anyway), but very slowly - even though it says that its not charging.

    Formatting ipads for old people

    For Mail, you can choose Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large or Giant for font size, in the "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" settings. When iOS 4 is available for iPad you'll be able to change the overall font size for Mail, Messages, Notes and Contacts (in the Accessibility settings). I hope this helps.

    If you don't mind jail breaking your iPhone, you can use MyWi ($9.99) or PDANet (around $20) to turn your iPhone into a hot spot that your iPad can connect to. I hope this helps.

    Yup, Mike's right. But try this. A lot of times, the YouTube app is slow. Try viewing the same video on the YouTube website using Safari. For me, a lot of times YouTube is faster via Safari.
