    Screen rotation issue

    Real resolution of rotation problem I too had the problem of the mail app no longer rotating in the iPad after installing an OS update. Resetting the iPad did fix it temporarily, but the problem always came back. I talked to Apple about it and they suggested that the problem was due to some...

    Best ipad 2 protective case?

    Just received the Macally Bookstand 2G for my new iPad 2. It's lightweight, works as a stand in the same fashion as the Smart Case (the front is similar to the Smart Case), but protects the back of the iPad. It's also pretty low-priced. Worth a look: BOOKSTAND2G Macally Peripherals

    Apple online sold out for 2-3 weeks

    To answer those asking why I didn't just go into a store and buy one, I used American Express reward points for a chunk of the price, so I had to go through their system (which ties in to the online Apple Store.) I placed my order around 8 am EST, but I don't think it actually got into the...

    Apple online sold out for 2-3 weeks

    My order for a 64gb wifi is scheduled to ship on April 1 and deliver on April 6. So Apple online orders are now 4 weeks to delivery. :(

    The 4.2 Update killed my iPAD - Need help

    To answer people about the problems I had with installing 4.2, I was using OSX, not Windows. So problems are not just limited to Windows users. Things seems ok now except that my iPad Mail app now is stuck in one orientation. It won't rotate no matter how I turn the iPad. For everything...

    The 4.2 Update killed my iPAD - Need help

    I too had problems with installing 4.2. It performed a mysterious and very prolonged backup after the install and then hung up in the verification, crashing iTunes. After various unsuccessful attempts to fix things with the help of Apple, I ended up doing a full restore and it turned out that...

    iPad Case Reviews

    I got the Macally Bookstand case to replace the Apple case. I liked the Apple case in the way it functioned (3 ways to prop up the iPad, etc.) but don't like the black material that shows every smudge all the time. It also completely obscures the iPad other than its screen. The Macally...

    Screen protector without the bubbles?

    I installed the ZAGG on my iPad. There were quite a few bubbles present when I did the install. But the directions claimed that all the bubbles would disappear after a couple of days because of the properties of the material. That's exactly what happened. After two days, there were...

    No Glare Screen Protector

    I have not found the Zagg to interfere with the touchscreen functionality or affect the display. The texturing does reduce glare somewhat by diffusing some of the incident light. The film also has a slightly tacky or rubbery feel which I don't mind at all. I guess some people don't like that.

    No Glare Screen Protector

    As a follow-up, two days later the bubbles indeed disappeared on their own. If you are finding fingerprints to be a real annoyance on the iPad, then the Zagg shield is worth considering. I was wiping off the screen all the time before. Now I hardly ever do it.

    No Glare Screen Protector

    I just installed a Zagg Shield on my iPad after trying an eBay cheapy for several weeks. I found the cheap shield to be intolerable with respect to fingerprints. it seemed like it was getting harder and harder to remove them. The Zagg has a slightly textured surface. It diffuses glare...

    Word Documents

    If you open the document in Pages, it is automatically saved in the app's documents "folder". Any changes you make from then on are saved as well. If you want to retrieve the document for use elsewhere, you can export it as a Word document in an email or retrieve it in iTunes on your computer...

    Carrying Bag

    This thing is not a case. It's a shoulder bag to carry the iPad in. I have the Apple case, which seems like it should provide enough protection for the screen. It is pretty rigid. I just wanted something to tuck the iPad into when I'm out and about with it since it doesn't quite fit in a...

    Carrying Bag

    I just got a carrying bag for my iPad made by Case Logic. It's exactly the right size for the iPad with only a couple of extra pockets for chargers or such. Here's a link to it: Case Logic 7-10" Netbook Attaché - eBags.com Pretty reasonably priced, too.

    What a great iPod!

    With all the focus on the multiple amazing features of the iPad, it is easy to ignore its functionality as an iPod. As an owner of pretty much every generation of iPod, I have to say that the iPad beats all of them by a mile. The user interface for managing your music is superb. The big...

    Mine came with a full charge. Down to 80% now after 2 1/4 hours. Netflix app works great, by the way.

    Sent from my iPad

    Ok. So this post is being written on my iPad. I've been playing with it for an hour or so and I am really impressed. Just a few quick observations before I go back to playing: 1. iBooks is amazing! I've used a Sony Reader for three years and this blows it away. 2. Email is great. 3...

    How Many People Have No Tracking Updates?

    You may be right, kilofox. I also had shipping exceptions in both Louisville and my nearest UPS depot a couple of days ago. Mine is also a 64G ordered in the first few minutes of the first day. So perhaps the thing is really here already and the tracking website is just worthless. We'll all...

    How Many People Have No Tracking Updates?

    My UPS tracking info still just shows the Chinese departure early on the morning of the 2nd (Asia time.) Some folks here are reporting all sorts of tracking activity into US depots. I talked to Apple and they said not to worry about what the UPS system is saying - my iPad will deliver...

    UPS Exception Just Posted?!?!

    My latest update also lists my closest UPS distribution center. Even better, the scan time is 10 hours in the future, which is quite an impressive feat. At least they are giving us entertainment while we wait for the Saturday deliveries. I wonder how many more nonsensical updates will appear...

    UPS confirms mine WILL NOT be delivered by Sat even though UPS does Sat delivery here

    I got the same "Exception" notification. Also something about UPS Internal Activity in Louisville, KY. Is that what other people are seeing?

    Sharing iTunes with iPod

    When I get my iPad, how will I share iTunes with it and my iPod Touch? The iPad will have a much greater capacity which I plan to use for additional videos and such. How will synching with iTunes work in this case? Clearly, there will be many things that I want to go to the iPad that I don't...

    Files and Folders

    I'm not what your comment about the iPhone means. I don't have an iPhone so it does does apply to my situation. Perhaps you meant on my Mac, which could be a reasonable way to do things. I am thinking about the situation where a document does not start out on the iPad but you want to work on...

    Files and Folders

    There has been no talk (or expectations) of having folders and storing files on the iPad. Everything seems to be based on shuttling things through iTunes. But how will the iWork apps work? There must be some way to access your great American novel that you're working on in Pages or your...
