    IPad and Apple TV

    Does anyone know if the IPad can stream to the Apple TV without a network. In other words, if I bring both to a cottage without wifi can they still work together.

    Programs you can Get in US only - Why ?

    The actual reason is licensing agreements, in the case of PBS, someone owns the rights to distribute in other countries therefore the US cannot directly distribute it outside the US. This will affect anything with video, audio and book content.

    SIMs Card

    Just buy an AT&T sim on EBay, when you get to the States you sign up on the IPad, you will need an American credit card and address. You can buy a prepaid Visa or other that will work.

    How to: download pdf magazine from web

    Unfortunately, you cannot do it from the Ipad, it a PITA. The only way is to download/save on a PC and e-mail it to yourself or drop it into Itunes and sink.

    App store

    For some reason I cannot open the App store on my Ipad. When I press the icon it momentarily opens and quickly switches to the Itunes store. My password and account login are correct in settings. Any ideas. I think it may be caused by the HGTV app.

    Moving pictures or files to SD

    I bought the camera connection kit, it's great for moving pictures from the camera or SD to the IPad. Now I would like to selectively move some pictures back to a different SD card using the SD card reader. Is there an app that will do this without a jailbreak.

    Stream directly from NAS

    Anyone find a nice app to stream directly from an NAS Upnp, most streaming apps will only stream from a PC. I want to stream directly from the NAS without turning any PC's on. I am now using MLPlayer lite and it's ok but nothing great.

    Traveling with the Ipad

    Glad it worked for you, now go ahead and cancel it on the IPad, don't worry it will stay active for the 30 days. This will make sure it does not auto renew next month. If you don't do it before you leave the States you may not be able to cancel easy without AT&T service in Canada.

    Traveling with the Ipad

    Try an Apple store if there's one near you. In Canada they give you free of charge Bell or Rogers sims. I had ordered mine through Ebay before heading south, when I got to the States it was an easy sign up. Keep in mind that I believe you need to be hooked up on wifi to get the sim set up, if...

    Traveling with the Ipad

    What? There are no activation fees on the IPad and no minimum service agreement. Simply insert sim, sign up for service on the IPad and then cancel on the IPad. The only catch is you need to be in a Wifi hot spot to sign up as you need wifi to get the sim signed up, remember to cancel...

    Traveling with the Ipad

    BTW, I also unlocked my IPhone 3G and bought the wife an unlocked GSM phone. Bought two AT&T GoPhone sims off ebay for $.99 each and bought two $15 prepaid card when down here. We pay $1 a day per phone and that gets us unlimited cell to cell calling and $.10/minute to land lines.

    Traveling with the Ipad

    It depends on what State you use as your address, some charge tax, some don't. I used my Florida address and didn't pay tax so it cost an even $25 for the 2Gig package. You might as well get a bigger pre-paid credit card like I did ($50) and use up the rest on other things, I gave it to the...

    What is the best screen protector you can buy?

    Got some eBay China specials for like $.99 cents and they are great, completely invisible. The first one I got didn't fit very well so the vendor sent me 4 other ones for free that fit very well.

    Traveling with the Ipad

    iPad hands down, instant boot, check stuff quickly, maps, portability, it's all better. I brought my net book for the kids however it stays in the condo, the iPad is with us all the time, the map app is great for getting around and searching info while on the move. Brought it to the beach for...

    Traveling with the Ipad

    I am presently in the States on vacation. What I did was buy an AT&T micro sim off of eBay as I didn't want to be looking for a store while on the road. When I got here I tried to sign up with a U.S. address and my Canadian visa number on the iPad and it would not accept it. It kept kicking...

    Site improvements

    I would like to suggest a few minor changes to make this site more IPad friendly. First when a thread has multiple pages, I always have to zoom in to switch to the next page, the page numberings could be bigger for finger tapping or replace the last page button with a next page. The second...

    ITunes password

    In the last two days every time I open my IPad it prompts me for my iTunes password, if I hit cancel it pops back up again until I enter it. It never did this before and it's annoying. I tried signing out and entering the info in settings, anyone know what I messed up.

    Sync / Backup times

    My Ipad takes at least 15 minutes to back up and sync everytime I plug it into the computer and I only have about 5 gigs on it. Is there a solution to this, 90% of the time is spent on back up, can I turn that off?

    Traveling with the Ipad

    I'm going to the States in a few weeks and called Apple and they assured me I could hook into AT&T with a Canadian address and credit card. Well so much for that. While in Canada you can buy I believe it's Master Card it's called Vanilla, this one can be activated online in Canada with a U.S...

    Rogers 3G activation issues... Anyone?

    I think their system got flooded on the launch day and couldn't handle the load and just dropped some. The odd part is the Rogers Tech support could not re-initialize the activation so we had to go with a new sim.

    Rogers 3G activation issues... Anyone?

    Yup, been there. Spent many hours on the phone with Rogers and Apple. Went to an Apple store where they gave me a new unit, still didn't work. We stuck a new sim in and I signed up a second account and I was up in seconds. Called Rogers to kill the old sim and reimburse my credit card.

    Does IBooks sell magazines. Being in Canada we can't even get latest releases yet. I know about Zinio however the app is not as good as IBooks. I don't want to subscribe through Zinio only to find out they will come out through IBooks.
