    Ipad2 upgradable to G4

    I live and work in the Boston, MA area - not exactly a low-density, low-tech environment. 4G, you must be kidding me. Neither VZW (my personal wireless devices) nor AT&T (corporate BB) can provide a reliable 3G connection during my commute or on the weekends. So, I'd settle for consistent 3G...

    I gobbled up my 250MB plan too fast! Tips to minimize usage?

    I would not have believed it if I had not tried it, but I can turn on airplane mode (killing all radios) and then turn wifi on, and get a wifi connection. I think that qualifies as a bug, given the purpose of airplane mode, but it is possible. Very odd. :confused:

    Pretty sure it's just dust.

    Ipad 2 battery

    Most devices are not fully charged when they report "100%." They continue to trickle charge until actually fully charged. Even in the cases where that is not the case, or after a device reaches a true full charge, the charging circuit will manage the battery and prevent any harm, though I...

    Best Smart Cover-Friendly Clear Case

    JoyFactory; Incipio Feather is also good.

    Apple logo when I wake up the ipad

    The Apple logo will show up with both a restart (press/hold power, slide off) and a reset (press/hold home+power for >10 seconds until Apple logo appears). If the iPad has gone to sleep, pressing home+slide will wake it up. If it was powered off, pressing the power button turns it back on.

    Videos application frozen

    Can't help with the diagnosis but it happened again yesterday and I tried something else that was an immediate fix and worked great. I double-tapped the home key and loaded the video player controls by going all the way to the left. I pressed the 'start button' then stopped the video and...

    Red Leather Smart Cover

    I've bought two in the past month, direct from Apple. Both are red on the inside.

    Raw photo management

    I read the AppStore summaries for those two apps and I'm not really sure why you'd buy both...:confused:...need to dig some more and Google up more reviews/blogs/etc.

    Raw photo management

    For the OP - I've been continuing to think about whether this would work in my workflow (as an alternative workflow)...I read a review recently of an app called PiRAWnah that the photog said worked extremely well as a raw import app. For editing, he was praising Photogene. I think the...

    iOS 6-what do you want for the ipad?

    1. Assurances that it'll run on my iPad2 ;) 2. Ability to do at least basic RGB, brightness and contrast tweaks on the display

    Yet another reason not to jailbreak... :eek:

    Keep iPhone 4, after getting ipad 2?

    Tried to communicate that to my FIL last night. :o First, there are a lot of iPad-specific apps that either don't have an iPhone equivalent or, if they do, are written so that the iPad app might as well be a totally different (and better) app. Second, many iPhone apps just don't display (in...

    IPad 2 unknown error (1140)

    Sounds like you've read and done this: iTunes: Understanding the iPod Photo Cache folder ? Apologies if so, but at least it'll bump your post. :)

    Ipad 2 owners, any general issues?

    It'll use wifi hotspot locations, if they're available...I was up in the air when I bought mine and figured if half the upcharge for the 3G was for the GPS, it was a good buy - for me and my needs. YMMV, obviously.

    Which Smart Cover color is the best with a white iPad 2?

    The red definitely (IMO) looks great as it gets the inevitable wear marks and scratches. A little (very little) Meltonian clear polish will keep it fresh and happy.

    Trade ipad 2 for MacBook Air?

    Not clear whether you're talking about trading both for the MB Air, or just the iPad? I can see owning a 13" or 15" notebook and an iPad (and I do). To me, they don't overlap much at all. If you get down to an 11" Air, it gets closer, but at the end of the day the size, touchscreen and other...

    Ahhh, I'm not the OP, but thank you! Note (again, correct if wrong): rebooting the iPad does not close apps, the ones in memory before will reload (???). That seems to be what I'm seeing with a memory/process monitoring app.

    AirPlay Mirroring

    Nope, not going to worry today about something that won't go live publicly for another four months or so. :D
  23. jnewell


    Correct me if I'm wrong (no doubts, I'm sure ;) ) but the checkerboarding isn't the problem, it's a symptom of the problem. The checkerboarding is iOS telling you that it hasn't finished loading the page you're looking at. iOS5 may replace the checkerboarding, but unless it has some way to...

    I want to hear from all you 3G ipad owners, has it been worth it?

    The wifi version will use wifi hotspot locations to approximate location if it can, but there are a lot of places where that's not going to be possible.

    AirPlay Mirroring

    I thought the iPad (iPad1) would do AirPlay as long as it was running iOS 4.3 or above.
  27. jnewell


    It probably means that you've got a relatively slow data download speed. It's not a problem with the iPad, it's a connection/data throughput issue.

    Maintenance question

    One of the benefits of the iOS environment (speaking as a 30 year PC person) is that apps are pretty closely vetted before release. Compared to the Android OS, especially Honeycomb, you find few or no problems that disrupt "force close" situations, etc. I like to reboot...

    I will only observe that we've moved way off the click-through ELU that the OP started with.

    Was I wrong to order it

    I actually spent a lot of time reading and live-demo'ing what it would and wouldn't do before I bought one (then a second). I have been a PC guy since IBM introduced the original PC and the Apple culture does not suit me that well. What I found out, after a lot of time looking at the "issues,"...

    Yeah, +1. Believe it or not :confused: I actually think the Android Market is easier to search. Eeek. ;)

    Does the Smart Cover offer enough protection?

    In lieu of some witty reply ;) I will say, in all seriousness, that while I think the Smartcover provides a generally good degree of protection, I would be reluctant to give it to kids, or to adults who weren't pretty careful, because of the issue of possible catastrophic drops if the magnets...

    Latest "Obnoxiosity" from Apple

    C'mon, you can't be serious? I went off on my own read-the-fine-print exercise after reading your post. Three and a half hours later, I can report that nothing in the United States Constitution mentions any sort of right or freedom to use a technology product without agreeing to any...

    Raw photo management

    Fair enough. Somewhat close to this, begging pardon if it's too OT, has anyone used Snapseed (by NIK) yet? It was introduced within the past day or so for iPad only. It looks somewhat promising...haven't taken the $5 bet yet, though. ;) Edit: here's a link to the NIK page describing the app...

    Is there an app info app??

    If it's useless, why delete it now, regardless of size? You can check app sizes on iTunes, fwiw.

    Iphone and an Ipad - is that overkill

    Uh huh. He should be asking for the bulk discount or something along those lines? :D

    I want to hear from all you 3G ipad owners, has it been worth it?

    Yes, but I wouldn't say it is $100. I allocated half of the upcharge to the 3G radio and half to the GPS. WiFi hotspot location often doesn't work. Typing in addresses all the time is a drag - I wouldn't do it, so I wouldn't use the iPad for as many location-sensitive purposes. Could I...
