    Anyone rent movies from itunes?

    I have had a similar experience with rental so I choose to purchase them in Itunes on my host computer, then sync them to the IPAD. They show up in the videos application and the wife can watch them at her leisure. You can get TV shows for $2-3 each, down load them to Itunes and then sync...

    Boston Herald Bashes iPad

    I am sorry, but where was the bashing? He had a lot of positive comments. And he correctly stated that the IPAD has a limited keyboard but that you can add an external one. And if you want to do hard core computer work or run your aps, the IPAD will not so that. This looks more like fact...

    1) it is premature to declair the death of the mouse. It gets nice attention for the author but is totally wrong headed. The mouse is a convenient, easy to use, intuitive input device and every desktop and "real" computer uses one today to great effect. If you want to do real work, or play...
