    Why has the ipad 2 been kept in the line up?

    And not the 3? My understanding is that the 4th gen has replaced the 3- why didn't Apple remove the 2 instead? The 3 has only been out since March.

    How can i watch tv shows on my ipad 2 for free NOT just the trailers?

    In the uk, there's an app called catchup tv. Does away with having to buy additional hardware. Surely there's a similar app in the us?

    Here is the official iPad 3 video

    They've reduced the price to £329 as well. Given that the new one is the same price as what I paid for my ipad2 last May, I'm not paying out again for what is basically a clearer screen. I'll wait till next year.

    The iPad needs more wattage to charge. On its charger it will state "10w". It might be that the docking station is interrupting that input and knocking down the power. Likewise, there isnt enough power from a laptop usb to charge up an ipad Stick with what the iPad came with.

    You have to use Bluetooth to connect. Keep trying- it will pair eventually.

    Tethering from iphone 4 on orange

    Orange don't charge for tethering. I've just bought a 4S on contract with a 1Gb data allowance. I tether my iPad 2 off it all the time.

    32gb or 64gb

    I have the 16Gb and it's plenty for me.

    Tethering iPhone 4 or Android to iPad 2

    Most, if not all UK providers don't charge for tethering now. As there is a personal hotspot feature in all iPhones running IOS5, then as long as you have a decent size data package it's not a problem.

    Ipad 64gb wifi only......internet possible with mobile phone???

    I have an ipad2 wifi only and I connected to my iPhone 4S using the personal hotspot feature last week whilst in London. I was reliant on the 3G network which was a bit slow in the capital, but it worked ok.

    My3G - you need to jailbreak though.

    iOS 5.0.1 file size - Really Apple?

    Over the air updates only add what they need to now. In other words, it's no longer a complete re-install like it used to be.

    Is a wireless keyboard worth getting?

    I bought the apple BT keyboard and have no regrets. It also pairs with the iphone and makes texting and emails a breeze.

    Using data from O2 sim card on iPad 2

    I have a tethering bolt-on with 02. However, bear in mind that the 3GS doesn't have the wifi feature like the 4 does, so you can only tether using Bluetooth or USB. Bluetooth is a pain to pair as well. You'd think being Apple, they'd both pair easily wouldn't you? My solution was to jailbreak...

    Returning iPad 2 to Apple

    I read of a fix for this, but I cannot find the website. basically, it advises turning the brightness down to 25%, doing a hard reset of the ipad, then check in a dark room. If still present, turn the brightness down again and reboot. Eventually, the bleed will disappear. Haven't tried it...

    Wireless Keyboard

    I bought the official Apple one off ebay. There's quite a few new ones on there, from sellers who've bought a new iMac and had one included in the pack. I paid £35 for a new, sealed one.

    Wireless Keyboard

    Just bought one today - what a great little device and compliments the iPad perfectly! I downloaded the Pages App a few days ago. Now, I can write letters with the same ease as a desktop. It works with my iPhone too- this makes texting a breeze! Highly recommended

    iPad 1 64gb 3G, or iPad 2 16gb WiFi?

    It is a good price, yes. I never had an iPad first gen, so I can't comment on the difference(s).

    iPad 1 64gb 3G, or iPad 2 16gb WiFi?

    Same here - 16gb wifi only. I don't plan on storing anything huge on it anyway.
