    Why used iPads so expensive on auction sites?

    I think some are purchased by people overseas that can't get them locally.

    iPad plastic bulge?

    You don't have to backup your apps since Apple will let you download them again for free. You do need to backup any music or video you have purchased as well as any items you created with your apps (like pages docs). Just sync your iPad to your computer before you visit Apple and you should be...

    iOS 3.2 VS 3.2.1 wifi speeds

    I ran a couple of tests after I upgraded too. I am getting much better download transfer rates now. The top three results are post upgrade.

    iOS 4.1 in beta

    I like how the multitasking/app switching works on my iPhone. Since I haven't jailbroken my iPhone or iPad, I am unfamiliar with backgrounder. How is it better than Apple's implementation?

    Wi-Fi Reception: mine is not good, how's yours?

    Since the update, my download speed has increased significantly (according to the app). Before the update, I was getting about 8,000kb/sec down and 4,400kb/sec up. Now I am getting about 15,000kb/sec down and 4,400kb/sec up. I ran across a site that tested 3.2 vs 3.2.1. Here...

    Do YOU think this is true?

    I received my iPhone 4 the day before it was launched. Overall it is the best phone I have ever owned. I thought the display on my 3GS was great. The 4's screen blows it out of the water. The camera is fantastic as well. Here is a pic I took of the difference between the 3GS display and...

    There are several threads with good info about converting DVDs/video for the iPad(like this one). I recommend you search the forum.

    Bluetooth Speakers

    The OP said he wanted Bluetooth speakers for his bathroom so he could listen while in the shower. I don't think the speakers have to be in the shower with him though ;).

    Can Someone Tell Me....

    It came highly recommended from a friend so I popped for the paid version right away. I therefore don't know what limitations are on the free version. Maybe one of our fine members will chime in and explain the differences. If the free version meets your needs, I see no reason to pay for...

    Can Someone Tell Me....

    IMHO, it is one of the best iPad apps. Being able to stream my whole video library (currently 2+TB) to my iPad over my local network is great. Being able to stream it over the internet is even better :D.

    Bluetooth Speakers

    I have Sony's SRS-BTM30 Bluetooth speakers. I use them with my iPad and my iPhone without issue. They work well without any dropouts like I have experienced with some Bluetooth headsets that I have tried. They also work on battery or wall power. My only complaint is once you get out of...

    Mail - Mailboxes

    It depends on your email provider. If your provider only supports POP, I don't think you can get access to your other mail folders. If they support IMAP, the folders be added automatically. BTW, both GMail and Yahoo! support IMAP.

    Can Someone Tell Me....

    To learn how to get pictures and MP3s on your iPad, I recommend you check out the iPad User Manual. It has a lot of good info for new users. As for AVIs and MPEGs, unfortunately the iPad can't natively play them. You can either convert them to an iPad friendly format with a program like...

    What PS3 or PC/Mac game are you playing right now?

    Dragon Age on the 360 (available for PS3 too). I can't seem to get enough of the game ;).

    Poor planning by Apple IMO

    I beg to differ. Apple makes very few accessories for the iPod/iPhone/iPad. A vast majority of accessories are made by 3rd party vendors. While I agree that Apple is not trying to give aftermarket suppliers a boost, I don't see how they can be considered "locked down" when it comes to...

    iTunes and iPad

    iTunes / iPad does not support mpeg playback. You will need to convert your mpeg into an iPad friendly format using a video converter like Handbrake. You can also use apps like AirVideo to convert and stream almost any format from your Mac/PC to the iPad. This method has the added benefit of...

    iPad Converter - Handbrake

    Have you tried MakeMKV? It rips (removes the copy protection) and saves the video to your HD in MKV format. You can then use Handbrake to encode it to an iPad friendly format. MakeMKV is available for Mac and PC. BTW, it will also rip Blueray discs but you have to purchase the program...

    How can you update a book's cover?

    I have run into this bug myself. You can force the artwork in iBooks on your iPad to update the book covers by uninstalling iBooks then reinstalling it. Not the best solution but it does work.

    HTC Sues Apple for Patent Infringement

    I guess that depends on the details of the lawsuit. If HTC did steal tech from Apple, you can't very well expect Apple to just let them get away with it. Apple spends a lot of $ on R&D. They wouldn't last long doing that if their competitors were able to use the fruits of that investment...
