    TomTom iPhone App Now Optimized for iPad

    The Dual XGPS150 will get you around that limitation, there are others. I wonder how TomTom compares to Navigon which works beautifully on the iPad.

    Hey Mick, welcome to the forum. Though there are few solutions to flash on iOS, I find that Puffin (also far from perfect) is much more useful than Skyfire.

    I can now confirm that Logmein Ignition does indeed have an option to hide the screen for each session, and that it works perfectly. When turning on the option ("Blank the Screen") in the iPad's settings, the desktop will pop up permission to install the necessary driver. For each subsequent...

    iOS5 worth the update?

    Sorry to hear that you have had trouble with the update. Do you have an iPad 1 or a 2?

    Of course, I understand.

    Logmein Ignition does have an option in preferences to blank the screen and is *much* faster than Splashtop with certain versions of Windows. I understand that the reverse is true for certain versions of OSX. I like Splashtop and it streams audio for free; but, overall LMI is a much more...

    Depending on one's hardware and software configuration, connecting to Windows or OSX remotely can extend the iPad's functionality dramaticaly. These programs are very important to some of us and work extremely well.

    Where have my PDFs gone?

    Hmmm... That second paragraph makes me a little uncomfortable as I have not yet upgraded. Well, I'll just try to back my work up to the hilt when the time comes for me to do so. I'm in no rush to get a heart attack. :)

    Logmein Ignition or Splashtop might be another alternative. Last I heard Puffin was working on Java support and they claim that all traffic is encrypted and anonymous though it may still be a risk.

    Cleaning The Screen?

    These screens are fairly tough. I often carry my iTouch in my side pocket with a little change and sometimes my keys; and, though I try to turn it away from these objects, they sometimes come in contact with the screen. There is not a single scratch on it. I much more careful with the iPad...

    Where have my PDFs gone?

    Thanks Diane, good to hear that the PDFs are not being lost everywhere. I saw the thread you mentioned and it does sound a bit unintuitive. Though I don't have Blogshelf, my guess is that it's being worked on and will reappear shortly.

    No products that contain alcohol. iKlear makes a packet containing several cloth sizes that is excellent. Lastly, I dont want to gross anybody out; but, for a stubborn spot, saliva works wonders. :)

    Is it normal?

    Goodreader is not able to reach outside of it's sandbox to reach other files, no program can do that unless you want to deal with the problems of jailbreaking (even then, I don't know if you will be able to approximate the functionality that you are hoping for). However, you can use it as a...

    Is it normal?

    You sound like a bright guy Carlo, use the iPad for a while and look for different ways of doing things. I think that you will eventually find that you made an excellent purchase. I too come from the Windows/Unix world and initially felt a bit frustrated as well. As Tim pointed out above, you...

    Who will be the first to download iOS5?

    Oh no. I have a lot of folders with carefully arranged apps so I think I will take screenshots before upgrading. I will probably wait at least a week before jumping in... at least. I hate to miss out on all the fun though. :)

    iOS 5 Update Problems Flood Apple Support Forums

    I believe that this is the wisest course for those that have not already jumped in. Things may go smoothly for many but there is a higher probability of running into server problems etc. with such a highly anticipated upgrade. I won't touch it for at least a week. :)

    WINDOWS XP Blue screen of death

    On some systems (i.e. HP) F11 allows a system restore via a menu choice. F8 will usually provide access to Safe Mode in either Windows or via the command line, but I'm assuming that this has not worked. Many modern BIOSs will perform a test for a hard drive failure which only takes a few...
