    Random Pauses in Audio since 5.1 update

    I have a problem that has surfaced since installing the latest OS update on my iPad 2. The audio in various apps (Pandora, Slacker, Tune-in and other radio apps) frequently pauses on its own. At first I thought I was having a wifi interference/dropped signal problem. But the wifi is both...

    Just received a new leather case from Evio, what appears to be a new company headquartered in Southern California. Their first product is the Harmony case for the iPad 2.

    Kindle Fire in an iPad Household -- Some Thoughts

    In an effort to (a) relieve some of the demand on the family iPad 2 from the three members of our household (including our seven year old) and (b) to expand the functionality of my wife's beloved Kindle (and elminating the dreaded "lights on in the bedroom while she's reading an e-ink display"...

    4G/LTE Verizon Performance for a Wifi Only iPad 2

    Just a brief report on the data use for my iPad 2. Because I need internet access for my laptop when I'm traveling and there is no wifi available, I have a mobile hotspot from Verizon (Samsung SCH-LC11). Upgrading from a previous netbook I paid $49 for the mifi unit, about the size of a playing...

    Khan Academy Videos

    Another thread prompted me to mention an extraordinary resource for students and teachers: the "Khan Academy." Briefly, this consists of over 2600 short videos posted on YouTube covering a vast array of topics from math and science to history. The videos are short, easily digestible "lessons"...

    Belkin Charger Kit 2.1 Amp Review

    As noted in some other threads, Belkin is having a sale on their entire catalog until the end of September. All items are 50% off with the promo code FB50 (applied at checkout.) As a result I picked up some iPad accessories including the FlipBlade Adjust stand and the Belkin Charger Kit. On...

    Belkin FlipBlade Adjust Review

    Just received this nifty portable stand and couldn't find another review. So... Sturdy aluminum construction. Folds flat for travel and very compact. Holds the iPad 2 in either portrait or landscape orientation. Very stable. Adjusts to multiple angles from near horizontal to near vertical...

    Alternative to Origami Workstation for use with the Apple Wireless Keyboard

    This folio was mentioned on another (to be unnamed) iPad forum by another poster. As a user of the Apple Wireless Keyboard with the Origami Workstation, I was happy to see an alternative. In fact, I think it's the only alternative for those who want the functionality of a combo iPad/keyboard...

    iPad Support for Business and Other Institutions

    I've noticed a number of posts on these forums from IT professionals (and IT amateurs) inquiring about issues associated with supporting multiple iPads in their businesses and educational institutions. The questions include issues of bulk purchases, deployment of multiple iPads, security...

    Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet

    Thought other business users might be interested in this review of the new Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet. Not interested in starting a flame war over the relative virtues of the iPad/iOS vs ThinkPad/Android approaches. But the new Lenovo Tablet does offer some important advantages that are work...

    REVIEW: Bear Motion Leather Back Cover for iPad 2

    I didn't really need a back cover. Already had a clear polycarbonate back cover that I use with the iPad SmartCover. But the Bear Motion back cover was on sale at Amazon for $2.98 (claimed retail $49.95) and since I was buying some other items, I tossed it into the mix. It's now available on...

    Logitech introduces new speaker/stand for Ipad

    Logitech has just announced a new speaker/stand combo for the iPad, similar in design to their Z305 speaker for laptops. I have the Z305 for travel with my laptop and like it very much. Won't be purchasing the iPad version because I recently purchased iHome rechargeable travel speakers. But for...

    iHome Rechargeable Mini Speakers REVIEW

    Just purchased these speakers for the iPad from Amazon ($40 in black). Pictures at url below. Was looking for inexpensive speakers for desktop, bedside, and travel use. Not shooting for audiophile sound nor even the high quality sound I get from my Sennheiser PX200-II foldable earphones. Just...

    Art Authority REVIEW

    Downloaded this app when it went on sale for the weekend at $4.99. Essentially it's a comprehensive coffee table art book with works from over 1000 artists and 40,000 works covering about 2000 years of artistic endeavors. Add to this the ability to search, create slide shows, and save selected...

    Wedge-E iPad/Kindle Stand Review

    Received a Wedge-E stand a couple of days ago. It's a very simple foam "pillow" designed to support the iPad or similar tablets/e-readers. Very light weight. Colorful (seven choices, I believe) fleece cover over the foam. Since the iPad simply sits in/on the Wedge-E, it works with...

    Can't Stop My Ipad from Serenading Me

    I have a problem that's driving my crazy. Occasionally, but only occasionally, when I pack my iPad 2 into my Waterfield "Travel Express" case along with my Apple Wireless Keyboard in its Origami Workstation and the iPad in sleep mode (activated by the SmartCover) I suddenly find that my iPad...

    Waterfield Design Travel Express Case Review

    Thanks to my wife and daughter I received a "Travel Express" case for my iPad 2 on Father's Day from Waterfield Design in San Francisco. What I needed was a bag/case that could be used on its own and/or placed in a larger bag that holds both the iPad and a 15" laptop. That...

    Creating New (Photo) Albums

    Standard apology for what I suspect is a really dumb question. And, yes, I did try searching before asking. Here's the deal. I have a relatively new iPad 2 that I've now filled with about 100 images taken with the iPad camera, downloaded from the net for wallpaper, or created with ArtStudio...

    InCase Origami Workstation Review

    This product has come up in several other threads, most notably in comparison to the Zaggmate/Logitech case/keyboard combo. Since it's not immediately obvious what the "Origami Workstation" is or how it works, it seemed worth a thread of its own. Stated simply, the Origami Workstation is a case...

    One iPad for the Family

    Received a new iPad 2 last week. Since our (my wife, my six year old daughter, and I) requirements are a bit different from many others on this forum, I thought it might be useful to share some observations from our perspective. First, some background. We have a number of computing devices in...
