    Why stylus needs charging?

    I had an old stylus (with blunt tip) which still works. However, I thought better to get one with pointed nib. But I am surprised to learn those require charging! What is the reason for that?

    My iPad 1 is jail broken on 4.3.2 and I have installed many apps via Cydia and other app stores. If I upgrade to iOS 5, do I lose all those apps?

    iCloud is heaven!

    Dropbox was doing it all the time. Apple is quite good at making people believe what they are doing is first in the industry even though they are not. Of course due credit to their marketing team with huge budget.

    buying apps. so true....

    There is a psychological barrier for paying digital apps. People won't mind paying for physical goods. Also no one just buys one single app for $1. People have to buy many of them (and many of them turn out to be crap) which does add up the cost. This puts people off from buying more apps even...

    Quickoffice pro hd or documents to go premium or others

    If your documents will spend their entire lives on iPad and you don't really need seamless integration with desktop Microsoft Office documents, then iWork is most powerful.
