    In Notes, some text is suddenly double-spaced.

    This is not earth-shattering, but a curiosity. I did a factory reset after nothing else would resolve the Calendar problem (it would open, but not stay on screen for more than a moment). With a clean copy of iOS 7.1, I let loose the hounds of iCloud, and got this odd double spacing...

    Anyone here planning to switch from iPad 3 or 2 to the Mini?

    If I could find out for sure whether the mini/Verizon will function as a hotspot, I'll add one to our stable of "devices."

    Newb Facetime Questions

    I have an icon lost in transit, too. Restrictions are off on my iPad2. I know I can access it from the search page, but I'm greedy, and want my icon back!

    iPad2 sound doesn't work without the earphones/headset

    Is there someplace I can post "hallelujah" in thanks for this post? I'm on my way to cancel a Genius Bar appointment! Bless you, chilluns.

    iCloud backup problem

    Now 1917 EDT. Went to Settings>iCloud>Backup (for the 95th time, I think), turned it on and received joy. It asked me for my password, then volunteered to back me up! It says it's estimating time remaining, but from the progress bar, I suspect it's not designed to count that high. Well, first...

    iOS5 releases October 12th as a free upgrade

    Those of you familiar with Cupertino scheduling, will the manual be released at the same time as the upgrade? I need something to read!

    ITunes podcast download

    Tim & Twerppoet, thanks. I have the devil's own time getting search results here using IPF Forum for iPad. Seems odd. Edited to give Twerppoet the p I stole.

    ITunes podcast download

    Is there any way to cancel a download in progress? IPad 2, 4.3.5.

    portrait stand that allows charging?

    Griffin Technology has a couple of them. Google wave griffin iPad, for example.

    Cracked the ipad screen, got a free replacement from the apple store

    I wonder if data backup is part of a customer competence test. I took my 4 year old MacBook to a genius, swollen battery. He checked that I'd registered it, asked the backup question, and gave me a new battery. No warranty involved. Super service.

    For the sake of the employees, make an appt. An Apple Store can turn into a zoo in a heartbeat.

    What is everyone doing that they can't seem to put down their iPads?

    FYI, I have Splashtop on Mac mini running 10.6.7, tied to this iPad2: MotherShip and Scotty. Splashtop runs on OS 10.6+.

    What is everyone doing that they can't seem to put down their iPads?

    Mark, why do you not recommend Splashtop for the Mac? Or did I read it wrong? Splash top currently on sale in the App Store.

    For those with wifi only versions of the ipad 2

    Reverse the concept, please. Is there any way a wifi+3G Verizon iPad2 can be used as a temporary hotspot? Hardware, software? I live in and travel to the boonies aforementioned.

    Best game ever.

    I think I bought the iPad2 specifically for Myst. There's a free trial version, if you want to see how comfortable you are with it (read, how much you remember!) on an iDevice. BTW, it's one of those apps designated iPhone which seems to work perfectly on the iPad. P. S. Just opened the...

    Apple is Recalling Verizon iPad 2s Before they are Even Delivered

    Yes, inquiring minds will want to know. Have serial number, will subscribe to thread.

    IPad 1 Time Out

    Go to Settings>General>Auto-Lock, and set the time for a longer interval. Heaven knows what creepy little App mis-set it for you.

    iOS 5 To Have 200 New Features Including Notification Centre, iMessage, Newsstand etc

    I'd have settled for just the "synching over wifi" part. Well, cropping will be good, too.

    Powering down

    Just a thought: if your notes are in Notes, and you have your mail et al set to synchronize to Google, you could lose notes that way.

    Auto synching to Google

    Probably the better solution. I'll go into the Labs section in a few and see if a miracle lies hidden. If you hear a small explosion, thaws me. Just to keep myself honest, Jeep, this is an iPad 2, running 4.3.3; Settings>Notes does not have a "default" option. CNN is all excited about the...

    Auto synching to Google

    This is one of those "It's not a bug, it's a feature," deals, but I'm trying to separate my Notes from my Google mail account. I thought I was right bright when I turned off Settings>Mail>GMailxxx>Notes, but managed to erase all 11 of them. I reconstructed some, but now know a) not to turn off...

    How do you add words to the spell checker?

    When it accomplishes hell, let's tackle it's and its. I'm almost used to backspacing to get its right.

    I got the iPad for my 72nd birthday.

    What's the last movie you saw?

    The King's Speech ... Also while waiting for the iPad. (And right now I'm waiting for Myst to download again; it buttered up the first time. That's what I get for buying an iPhone app for the iPad.)

    ipad playing up or is it safari?

    I meant to post that yesterday, while cleaning up my neighbor's MBP, I got the same "server identity" request on Firefox, accessing Google.

    ipad playing up or is it safari?

    May I copy this backwards and glue it to my forehead so I can read it in the mirror? Super basic. Thanks.

    Is Best Buy Only Selling the iPad 2 to Customers Who Buy a Protection Plan?

    Verizon, too tried to sell me a $239 add-on "device" to make it possible to use the V3G. I was trying to price month-to-month options.

    Apple to freeze vacation for store employees - big product coming

    Change: after the news that Verizon has scheduled a p/c for Tuesday, the refurbished page now shows only the WiFi iPads at "Special Limited Time Price." :confused:

    FAQs on "Do I need Wi-Fi or 3G model?"

    Now we're getting somewhere. So, instead of asking, "should I wait for 4G?", I shall ask for a speed comparison 3G/4G. Even a cracked record is right twice a day ... or something like that.

    FAQs on "Do I need Wi-Fi or 3G model?"

    Y'all are skittering around the reasons newbies want help to understand the sources of internet connectivity; what is needed is an exposition of the differences among wifi, 3G, mifi: suppliers, hardware, speed of connection, subscription costs, upfront costs. Today Verizon online is advertising...
