    Best iPad browser other than native SAFARI?

    Atomic I like in every way but one. Safari remembers my login, whereas Atomic does not. Why?

    A little advise from more learned than me.

    As a test, I printed a photo from my iPad directly to my HP8100 using clip print using wifi. Worked perfectly the first time. I have no doubt I can print text. You can also download an app that runs on your computer, so your file goes to your computer and then directly to your printer. I'm...

    Verizon is better than AT&T, again

    I'm wrong. Which means I need to borrow a Droid. Although I'm really happy with Apple products and AT&T. And I hope I'm wrong on Verizon's current mind set. Even a company deserves redemption.

    Verizon is better than AT&T, again

    I have a 6 month old Kindle using Verizon. No reception... Had to go to town to download my books. My iPad, which I'm using here, and my iPhone both work in house or anywhere in the area. Glad I could show you how to use the maps. Your claim that zooming gives you misleading data is...

    Verizon is better than AT&T, again

    Take another look. Both are shown with selectable tabs. Plus you can expand on any area. I used this map before I bought an iPhone. It turned out be correct... So now I have both an iPhone and an iPad. My kindle sits, as it does not work where I am... Which I believe is Verizon.

    Verizon is better than AT&T, again

    Try AT&T Coverage Viewer I suspect AT&T is being conservative. That has been my own experience. The map Verizon shows, shows their orientation to "facts", imho.

    Verizon is better than AT&T, again

    While I agree with your signature quote, the AT&T map is at least 8 years out of date. Not to mention I've had reason to distrust Verizon going all the way back to their roots. The map you show is yet another example. Where did you get it?

    iPad owners average age

    The graph is reflecting the demography of the US, skewed a bit on the high side since reading is a prerequisite. I would suggest that ownership of an iPad is reflective of some other factor than age, or some combination of factors. I would like to think curiosity is one key factor.

    Verizon is better than AT&T, again

    Verizon doesn't work where I am, period. Although I'm probably a special case location wise. SE of Loma Prieta. There is a cell repeater above us that was put up by Cingular 25 years ago which thankfully AT&T has maintained. As far as the rest of the bay area, no problems with AT&T that I'm...

    Jailbreaking Explained

    Downloaded iTunes 9.2 and iOS4 yesterday... 4x4 group folders with 12 icons max per folder. Big improvement.

    When to charge?

    You will hear a lot of opinion on this... most of it just hand-waving opinion. The LiIon batteries are so much better than NiMH, that you are unlikely to keep your system long enough to experience battery performance issues. Just use it and enjoy. Personally I leave the phone and iPad...

    Do you turn off your ipad?

    I leave it on, much like my iPhone. Both stay plugged into a charger most of the time. There are various levels of "off". The lowest power draw is what you call off. You can use airplane mode to lower draw significantly when you are not near a charger or prevent connectivity to other devices...

    Would you do your on line banking on iPad?

    I use "Mint" to track all accounts... fast and a simple way to verify account activity. Sometimes I pay a bill or transfer on BofA using their app. Whereas I used to check via my PC, now I update the computer only once a week. This gives me a long term record, and allows for long term...

    can not find ipad anywhere!

    Online Apple... works well.

    Jailbreaking Explained

    Ok... I'd rather leave it to Apple. Not worth the time or hassle for me. Not to mention I'd rather Apple worry about security. But I get the argument. Thanks.
