    Made homemade family dvd with menus, can it transfer over?

    I think they convert as chapters. Try HandBrake (now with an iPad preset) or FormatFactory for those type-A personalities. See the link in my sig.

    A killer PDF on the iPAD

    Bags and Slings ????

    My man purse, or as I prefer to call it "action pouch" is similar the TimBuc2, but more stylish. I really like that form factor, and would like simething in leather - but so far they just haven't been affordable.

    Can anyone recommend an iPad2 6' charge/sync cable and 12v charger?

    Go have a look at the Apple World Travel adapter. Besides what it says on the box, it comes with a long power cable. Apple World Travel Adapter Kit - Apple Store (U.S.)
