    Doing math on the iPad not ideal: will jailbreak give me keyboard options?

    I have the wireless apple keyboard, bit it's not much help if I'm standing up or walking (most of the time this is when I use the ipad.)

    Doing math on the iPad not ideal: will jailbreak give me keyboard options?

    If you want to type an equation such as: 3x^3 + x^4 -2x+1 =y on the iPad you switch screens in-between almost every letter. most of what I write and chat about is equations. And while I have found ways to get LaTeX to work with the iPad, I still find the keyboard annoying. It's also hard...

    iPad beeps now and then... Don't know why.

    I have all notifications off... It just happened again when I was watching a movie. The sound on the movie went down, then "bleep!". Then back to the movie... Now dialog... Now new mail mystified.

    iPad beeps now and then... Don't know why.

    Every few hours my iPad makes a bleep noise, it will do this if I'm using, or if it is sleeping and just sitting on the dresser.. No dialogue box comes up with this sound... What could it be? I have about 30 aps.. Any idea what this could be?

    Heres an overlooked reason why ipad in general has 78% of the tablet market share

    My 5-year old niece uses my iPad all of the time. She is very careful, more so than many adults I know. I do make her sit on the floor on a carpet though to avoid drops. (Not all young kids are little tornados. I'm happy to let her use it and she is quite good at many of the games, switching...

    new Ipad user, already hating Apple

    I'm a college mathematics instructor, computer programmer and I love the iPad, it's perfect for 98% of what I want to do and I can get the other 2% with a jail-break if it is such a big deal. If I want a machine I can control every single thing on I'd buy something that runs Linux-- er. But...

    Disguised for public transport

    I think the best option is to have a simple book bag, put the iPad in a case then in the bag. Small iPad-sized bags will tend to be a dead give-away. I keep mine in a bookbag when on the subway. I only take it out if I have a seat near the center of the car (not near the doors) -- I'm more...

    Waiting for iPad 3

    It is true that there are times when I want to keep track of files on my own... but today I cleaned out my "downloads" folder on my iMac. It has 1,256 items. I amassed them over only a year. These are pdf's I read on the web, software I tried out, images I saved to post to forums... and other...

    Ready to try a jailbreak!

    I've been scared of the jailbreak for some time, but after seeing this app: MyProfiles - Customize Text, Email alerts on iPhone And the possibility of using my ipad as a hotspot (so my husband on his wifi only iPad could surf too) has made me curious enough to do research. What I have...

    App ideas... everyone has one...

    Like many people I have a few ideas for apps. I don't think any of my ideas are going to be worth millions, mostly they are apps that *I* want since they would make my life easier. I have some computer programing experience, but I'm not an expert. Has anyone here successfully developed an...

    Grove Bamboo iPad 2 case update: hurry up and wait!

    I had a cover on the iPad 1... And I've been using my iPad 2 without one... It was nice for a bit, but it's very slippery, when I get on an elevator, or walk up stairs, or holding it with one hand while on the subway.. I feel nervous... Like I have to hold it with both hands or it might drop...

    Grove Bamboo iPad 2 case update: hurry up and wait!

    Good news. I got an email from them today... They are NOT going to do it unfairly... If I order in a timely fashion I should get my case shipped before all the people who signed up after me! So, I'm quite happy with how this worked out and the customer service thus far.

    Grove Bamboo iPad 2 case update: hurry up and wait!

    Yes, that's my understanding too. What I'm (slightly) annoyed about is the fact that the hundreds possibly thousands of people who pre-ordered after me (everyone who pre-ordered from March 11- today) can easily have their orders filled before me if they get to the online store before I do the...

    Grove Bamboo iPad 2 case update: hurry up and wait!

    Like many here I placed a $20 pre-order for the beautiful much anticipated Grove iPad 2 case: Lovely Isn't It? I placed me pre-order the day before iPad 2 came out. I was THAT excited about this case. I wanted to pre-order right away so I'd have a good spot in line when they started...

    The New York Yankees HATE iPads.

    Hey all. I live a few blocks from Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. I really love my neighborhood and... most of the time I'm a Yankees fan... but NOT TONIGHT. My husband got some tickets from a friend so when he got home from work he told me to meet him at the stadium. I had some stuff to wrap up...

    Five days with the iPad

    I've noticed a lot of people in tech forums will be really nasty about giving feedback and comments. He had some valid points, but the name calling made the whole thing seem like a desperate attempt to inflate his ego. I really hate that kind of dick waving.

    My iPad 2 Case Round Up: which cases have smart magnetic covers?

    Lots of iPad case manufactures are coming out with their cases for the iPad 2. What I find shocking is that, so far, very very few of the available cases support any of the smart case technology! I do expect this to change, but frankly I find the fact that great case designers like: BookBook...

    Non-3G iPad: using MiFi

    Program to improve the Camara?

    I gave this a shot $0.99 what the heck. It isn't what I'm talking about. It just creates normal stills here is a still photo from the camera compared to a still taken from a video of the same scene... Not much difference. (Yes, I know it's time to clean the living room!)

    Program to improve the Camara?

    Yes you can, but it requires multiple stills. If you are photographing something that doesn't move you can use the data from several bad images to make a slightly better one. I worked on developing this kind of technology in college though I don't know where the industry is today. (Since that...

    Program to improve the Camara?

    Who has Backlight bleeding?

    To be honest if I didn't read the tech blogs I never ever would have noticed this issue.
