    Is the ipad 2 the ultimate travel campanion? Over s laptop?

    Took both on my last two cruises. Used the laptop to do long emails but the speed of the ipad was much faster connections than using the ships compusers. Loved being able to read and stay connected where ever we went on the ship. However, the coffee shops in Juneau, Skagway, and Ketchikan...

    Anyone else waiting???

    I upgrade all the time. But sometimes it works better if you wait for the little bugs to be worked out. I don't want to tie up my devices for several hours each.

    Purchasing apps

    There are a few apps that are specific to each device and you will need to pay to use it on more than one device. I had that happen with one of the calendar programs that I really liked, and then the two devices did not work together on the app. So I removed the apps and got a refund.

    Anyone else waiting???

    Since I am re-ripping cds to my new ipod, I will be patient and continue to wait on IOS5 until everyone is happy. I know we see more difficulties probably here on the forum but all my newsletters are still advisiting to wait.

    Anyone else waiting???

    Glad to see I'm not alone. I think by the weekend the major rush will be over. When I logged onto my desktop this morning, my computer told me that Itunes needed to be upgraded to 10.5 (which I thought I did on Tuesday) and Safari to 5, so I let the computer do its thing. Wonder if I will see...

    Anyone else waiting???

    I have been reading about errors and problems getting ios5 downloaded today. So I decided to wait a day or two. Anyone else waiting to update or upgrade? I backed up everything yesterday in anticipation of problems today.

    What are you reading now?

    I actually went back into Hostile Witness. It turned out to be better than I first reported. Got a little slow moving in the middle, but had some very good twists and turns.

    How many Ipads does your household own?

    We have 2 adults in our house, and we both have an Ipad2. I think if I had children I would have them share one between them.

    iTunes. Is it really so bad?

    My ipod had 32G of music. I initially lost all of my music with itunes when I had to charge my ipod battery back in May. I had backed up music but today I had to charge my battery again. Itunes popped open, it downloaded my husband's music from his ipad2 onto my ipod--not my accounts. My...

    Like the new Layout!

    I like the new layout. I would like a little bit bigger font too. When I cllick on "+Reply to Thread" goes to "Quick Reply", rather than to a bigger reply section. Is this correct? I can just move the cursor to the quck reply section and save a step. Good job everyone.

    Do you use our ( IPF ) App?

    I like getting to the forum from my laptop usually cause I can type a lot faster on it. When I am away, I will the app; but prefer reading and typing on the laptop which is how I began on the forum.

    Best Buy or Apple Store

    I ordered our ipad2s from the on-line store. I never thought about Best Buy for my ipad purchases. But if it qualifies for the bonus points, I might think about buying there. You can use the certificates from the bonus points for accessories.

    What are you reading now?

    Thanks for the information on both threads. It sounds like a very interesting book. I am not a real history buff but I too was in school and can remember exactly what I was doing when we heard Kennedy died. I remember being glued to the TV set and seeing Oswald get shot on live TV. Didn't...

    Best book app?

    I really like the Kindle app. There are so many free and inexpensive books on Amazon. I don't find the Nook application as friendly. And I reallly like that I can read my books on both my Kindle and Ipad2 and not loose my place; wifi takes me to my last page no matter which device I am on.

    What are you reading now?

    is my employer allowed to track my company issued iPad2?

    I think because it is company property the answer is yes. The IT department can put an application on the ipad, smartphone, laptop, or gps units that are supplied by your employer. Be careful what you put on your computer, ipad, cell phones because yes, the employer can have all the...

    Fraud Charges from iTunes

    My husband checks our Amex card and BofA MC every day. He questions all small purchases--less than $5.00--as many scammers do the small amounts to see if the card holder is watching their accounts. His card got hit for 3 $.99 itune charges not too long ago. The next day we got a call from...

    Can't get to google bookstore with app

    I didn't know Google has a bookstore. I would suggest you go to Amazon and get the Kindle app and bookmark their free ebooks. I have read so many really good free books that I check at least once a day to see what is new. I read "Under the Dome", Stephen King's last novel for free--it was an...

    My ortho doctor has all kinds of programs on his Iphone including Dragondictate. I haven't had to see him for awhile but I am guessing he will have an Ipad2 for his work. He was always ahead of the times being on his Iphone to explain surgeries to me. As a social worker for CPS, I see many...

    Refurbished iPad 2's Available

    I got my 1st Iphone about 4 months ago after going through a similar experience with a Samsung Intercept. I went through 5 refurbished models and they would not let me have a new phone of any model. So I left Sprint and got my Iphone. I am so impressed with the support and the ease of my...
