    Missing trash icon

    Ipad2 5.0.1. In photos, I am unable to delete some of the photos because the trash button (top right) is missing. Can anyone tell me why some photos show the trash button and others not? Thanks.

    iOS5 First Impressions

    No. The other apps are either no longer available or I can't remember them or were not downloaded from the app store.

    iOS5 First Impressions

    Still trying to find a way to no avail. Syncing on Firefox is now built-in (ised to use xmarks) and should work on the ipad as well as on any other PC/device but it doesn't. Help please. Thanks.

    Syncing Firefox bookmarks on iPad2

    Without having to pay for an app, is there a way to sync Firefox bookmarks on the iPad2? Firefox now has a built-in syncing feature that works fine with Windows and Linux but not with iPad2. Any ideas? Thanks.

    iOS5 First Impressions

    Firefox bookmarks are no longer syncing on my iPad2. Refreshing does nothing. Is there a way to do it without having to pay for an app? Thanks.

    iOS5 First Impressions

    This might interest someone. As mentioned in my OP, I lost most of my apps followin the iOS5 upgrade and thought they were gone forever, wrong! I have just redownloaded ibooks and all my books are still there including the one I was reading. So everything wasn't lost.

    Yes tim, I did. I'm in the process of reinstalling some of the apps I remember.

    iOS5 First Impressions

    Quite frankly, I am not impressed. For starters, despite doing a backup before installing iOS5, I have lost more than half of my apps which has annoyed me tremendously. I will have to start all over again. I don't find the overall "improvements" as fantastic as some will try to make you believe...

    Free soccer

    No Ash, still struggling with the ipad. Live soccer on my desktop is great but the sites are still using Flash which is not supported on the ipad. Hopefully they will switch to HTML5 soon.

    IOS5 uk

    Try this evening, no earlier than 6pm. If we are lucky, we might be able to download.

    Free soccer

    Correct Ashley. I ditched Sky (what a pain to cancel it was...) because they are expensive and I can now watch football, etc. for FREE on the net, even Sky on some of the free sites!!! ;o)

    Free soccer

    I have come across this website iOSFlashVideo which might have the solution for viewing soccer matches for free. I'll have a go and report back, if successful.

    iTunes obsolete after 12 October?

    I also run a 6-year old Packard Bell laptop (with XP) almost exclusively for iTunes without any problems. With the birth of iOS5 I will probably just run my desktop for daily workload and iPad2, the latter especially for travelling is fantastic, no more carrying heavies!

    HTML5 coming?

    Great news but it will only work if the site developer pays for it and at $4,500 some will not be able to afford it. So, as users, we'll just have to wait and see.

    iTunes obsolete after 12 October?

    I appreciate all your useful comments to my thread. Thanks folks!

    HTML5 coming?

    sportlemon.tv is the one I use for soccer/tennis and I am hoping that one day soon they will switch to HTML5.

    Free soccer

    Does anyone know of any sports site running HTML5 for viewing live soccer matches, etc. on iPads, FREE? Thanks.

    iTunes obsolete after 12 October?

    On 12 October we will be able to download the new iOS5 onto our iPads. Can we then remove iTunes from our computers to recover, in my case, much needed space? Or, keep it for backup? Comments please.

    HTML5 coming?

    Since my last post I have discovered more sites that are using HTML5 and therefore I can watch them on my ipad2. Unfortunately, I haven't found one yet streaming live soccer/tennis free. It'll come, hopefully.

    HTML5 coming?

    Thanks for coming in Diane. I have been able to enjoy watching football (soccer) matches on my desktop PC (webs streaming audio and video using Adobe Flash) but the iPad2 lacks this facility because it does not support Adobe. I understand that HTML5 will solve the problem in the not too distant...

    HTML5 coming?

    Great news that from 12 October I will not need a PC to run my iPad2, just install iOS5 and bingo no more Windows! However, when are we going to enjoy streaming? Will HTML5 (replacing Adobe Flash) be supported? Can't wait...

    Router password not stored

    Done it!!! I tried Harley's suggestion again (forget this network) on BOTH the Router AND the Range Extender, rebooted, chose Range Extender, re-entered password, rebooted and bingo it automatically connects to the Range Extender. Job done. Phew! Your help Harley much appreciated.

    Router password not stored

    Thanks for coming in Tim. I have already turned off the iPad many many times but it still connects to the Router when turned on from cold and not the Extender. I can only connect to the Extender manually selecting it and each time it asks for the Router password, a 26 alphameric password...

    Router password not stored

    We have a Netgear DG834G wireless router wired to a desktop PC from which we connect, wirelessly of course, several laptops and tablets. Because the signal is poor in some areas of the house we recently acquired a Netgear Universal Wifi Range Extender WN2000RPT which works fine. Now, we have...
