    Cannot Turn Passcode Lock Off!!?!?

    Are you sure about that? I use gmail with Exchange server for push notifications and I can turn Passcode off. Is this only true with certain Exchange servers. I know gmail uses an emulator for IMAP services, but to the iPad it should appear as an Exchange server.

    Steve's Legacy

    I know we all hope for Steve Jobs' recovery, but to be honest it seems likely this may be his last leave of absence. I was thinking about what marching orders he might give Apple in his absence. What direction to go. In fact he has always been going the same direction, as evidenced by this...

    Why are people complaining about flash support?

    Except there is a second form of pancreatic cancer which has I very low morbidity rate. Which is what SJ has. He was first diagnosed in 1986, and had been doing well until around 2005. This is well documented.

    Why are people complaining about flash support?

    Ya I was going to point that out. The author of AppAdvice saw it and was going to rag on Toshiba for being iPad hostile. Then he watched the video (on his MacBook) and decided the Toshiba tablet looks pretty cool. Good advertising knows it's market. I still haven't gone to view the video...

    Why cant I run iTunes concurrently on 2 windows accounts on same pc

    I suspect it is mostly an iTunes design issue. They probably put a lock file under ProgramData and that will not allow two instances to be launched at the same time. I also suspect that if you could do this both copies of iTunes would try to bind to the same port and one would fail.

    Double Resolution For iPad 2? Possible Retina Display?

    Not a crystal ball, it's just over a quarter century of building software and hardware myself. The processing power required to push over three million pixels is considerably more expensive and more power consuming than that required for the current one quarter of a million pixels at a framerate...

    Double Resolution For iPad 2? Possible Retina Display?

    Remember that is not double the resolution, that is four times the pixels. Sadly they processing power isn't ready for a tablet device. That resolution will not be coming this year. -- Sent on my EVO 4G with Tapatalk

    Biggest annoyance with the iPad?

    No you cannot. Can you see an iPhone or iPod touch or Android as a Windows Share? Ok, you can make an Android phone appear with an App, but most non PC devices don't do file sharing.

    iPad 2 Minutes Ahead

    Two minutes into the future? Sweet. You could kill in Wall street with that capability. Sorry my iPad is currently on the second, but it doesn't seem to sync time very often.

    iOS 4.2 too large to download

    Oh my goodness. I feel for you because with that plan I would go through the monthly data plan every day. As much as I get cranky with Comcast, I may have to hug my cable modem.

    Here comes the competition

    I disagree, it only seems like bickering if you don't see the relevance of competition to the iPad. I believe the competition is going to make the products better for the consumers. While it is true a few people get into a religious fervor when stating their case, I don't believe that makes the...

    Biggest annoyance with the iPad?

    You are reading too much into what people say. Just because someone says they "hate" some feature or some missing feature of the iPad does not mean they hate the iPad. You need to read what people say more discerningly. For instance, many of us hate how much college costs, but we do not hate...

    Congratulation - New iPAD Application of OUR Forum

    Ok, after using this App for awhile I must say that it is really handy. Much faster navigation than with a browser. Easy to manage subscriptions. Handles quotes better than the standard browser interface, IMHO. And I like the Icon badge to see new posts are available. The only things I would...

    Here comes the competition

    So because the Mac has a small market share you argue that it doesn't count as an example of OS market share? "I do not think that word means what you think it means." Except that iPhone is not and never has been: We call this the "ignore the...

    An interesting read...are the competitors doing it wrong?

    So you really haven't followed Steve Job's career very long I see. ;) While he is a fanatic about design, he is also a fanatic about controlling his market and maximizing profit.
