    Took the iPad 2 for a long road trip overseas.......

    Have used Teamviewer on several occasions and it works like a charm as long as connection wherever you are is not shoddy. Just got back from Uganda and no issues there with the iPad. One provider to consider is Orange and there are tons of places to buy SIMs from. Not all may have the micro but...

    iPad centric Bag: Looking for ideas and suggestions......

    @ HaggisGirl - I hear you ;) The bag I have in mind would be too small for wheels unfortunately. It would be very compact but if I had anything larger, wheels will be a first! @ Kona - the Boa is a sweet bag. @ Drathbun - thanks for the photos. That's quite a setup!

    iPad centric Bag: Looking for ideas and suggestions......

    Hey folks, Since my initial post earlier last year on taking my then new iPad on the road (LINK), I've covered in excess of 200,000 flight miles worldwide with it. Along the way I've decided I needed a more iPad centric bag that can hold the stuff I bum around with. As such I'm working on...

    Took the iPad 2 for a long road trip overseas.......

    Man, my apologies for the delayed reply. Just got back from Vietnam. @jdembinski - no sir, it is good to go out of the box. Nothing needs to be done. @shoppingtrolley - I'm happy to report that it works in Vietnam too. A micro SIM card does not come easily in HCMC (Saigon) but these guys are...

    Skype on iPad

    Huh, that means that I've been using the iPhone version on my iPad2 for the last month while traveling overseas. Didn't even realize that. I can tell you it worked pretty well. Video was a tad spotty but that was because of the low bandwidth where I was. No problems whatsoever with voice.

    NoVA checking in.....

    I have no idea why it has taken me this long to consider an iPad. I finally took the plunge a month back and have used it extensively in Asia. I plan to post some info based on my travels and hope it can be of some use to fellow iPad owners. I'm also a product developer (bags, cases, etc) and...
