    The Official Ipad 3 Accessories Thread

    Care less about iPad II - What about V1 accessories. I could care less about the IPad 2 accessories. My iPad 1 TV adaptor (apple), USB adaptor, video adaptor, and smart card adaptor all work on my V3. None of my cases work - which is too bad, I really liked the original Apple case & hate the...

    Old guy w/new iPad upgrade

    Well, I am past the age many retire, not for me tho…. I bought a V1 iPad 64/3G on day one, tossed my MacAir and iPhone soon thereafter. I use my iPad for papers, presentations, and ------- every day. I've never found a better business tool, or cross country traveling aid - my iPad carried...

    Screen protector or not?

    I have one of the first V1 iPads, and use it all day, every day. I have screen protection on the front, and the standard Apple case (best of all that I tried). I will do the same for my new V3. My old one looks like it just came from the box.

    Version 1 to version 3

    I have one of the first original iPads, and will get a new V3 tomorrow. I noted that most did a simple SIM chip replacement when going from V1 to V2 - since V3 is 4G enabled, and I have an original unlimited 3G account - think the swap will still work? I really don't want to lose the cheap...

    Friend works at the Apple Store

    I have one of the very 1st iPad V1.0, and am looking forward to my new iPad (3), arriving tomorrow. Both are 64G, black, WiFi/3-4G units, so I'll get to do a full side by side evaluation!!! Since I get to pass my V1 within the company, I will get full price for it, so my V 3 is essentially...

    Thoughts on the iPad - Three Weeks Later

    Very nicely done, thanks. I have 60+ apps, and have yet to have one crash - but I don't do games either. I only used a laptop for travel (MacAir) & the iPad does everything I need it to do, and then some. I tried a Netbook, thought & still think it's useless (same for Win O/S, but...

    ipad users - please tell me about your ipad

    Maya - This is a project that I would assign to a class... I am a PhD, running a company creating human and veterinary diagnostics (with occasional teaching episodes) - I find the use of the iPad catches and attracts attention when graphics are needed, and the iPad is perfect for quick...

    ipad users - please tell me about your ipad

    1) What was your main reason for getting an ipad? [A replacement for a business travel laptop] a. Did you buy it yourself? If not, was it a gift, provided by work, or what? [Personal Purchase] 2) Did you intend to use for particular purposes? If so a. What were they? [Business...

    In Need of the PERFECT Case - For Business

    Until iPad1 introduces his integrated system, the one I have will work for me. I don't need leather or a "name", I need protection & convenience.

    WowWee or Pico projectors

    Has anyone tried to use one of these with the iPad yet?? I know they are not as bright as my Sharp, but at 10% of the space and weight, it might prove to be a great option.

    Observations after two days w/ 3G

    Well, I like the Apple cover - although it is pricy for what you get. With the cover on, it fits into my St Georges zippered folio, for the best of all worlds - although I would like an integrated folio... I have installed the iWork package, the bluetooth printing app, the PDF reader...

    In Need of the PERFECT Case - For Business

    I'm happy for those of you who can type fast enough to take notes in a business meeting - however, I cannot, and trying to do so, would not be acceptable at the meetings I attend. Therefore, is there an all in one solution, of do I continue to drag my St. Georges folio around too.

    VGA adapter - did I miss something?

    I had the presentation software running my projector within an hour of opening the box - what I didn't like is that the projector takes over the image - there's nothing on the iPad screen, so you don't have the guide you had with the laptop. Small price to pay tho.

    Will you try to exchange your wifi to 3G iPad?

    I guess I'm an old duck - my iPhone, Kindle and MacAir are all toast, as soon as I get my iPad. When OS4 is released, the iPad will meet all of my travel needs - memos, light spreadsheets, presentations (even via a projector), movies, music, photos, E-mail, and Skype. It's the prefect solution...

    Steve Jobs Says iPad 3G Is Coming to Europe End of May, US End of April

    iPad 3G coming on May 7th

    I got the "late April" E-mail too - ordered on 3/12. Given that the 23rd is "Earth Day", and I wouldn't count the iPad as "green", I'm betting on shipments starting on the 27th, to arrive by the 30th - ie: late April. Also note that my CC has not been hit for the iPad - all of the accessories...

    Hello from Redmond

    I'm a medical geek, who actually owned Osborne's, A IIEs, Sinclairs, and Mac #128. I've dumped Win O/S twice, pulled back the first time by beancounter requirements, and the fact that the Mac wouldn't run the hospital's patient information software... Now I have my own world, and can dictate...

    iPad vs HP Slate

    Well, first it has a Win O/S - just a personal bias, but that alone would keep me from buying it. With O/S 4, the iPad user interface would be killer and do everything I need a travel system to do. It is cheaper - but it was a side by side comparison between a HP and Apple laptop that...
