    When is iPad-3 Likely to come ?

    If you are thinking about buying an iPad the product that is available today is the iPad2 which is available with or without 3G in three different memory sizes. That is the product you should be thinking about. Do you post on car forums asking what the 2014 model will be like so you can decide...

    When is iPad-3 Likely to come ?

    Sorry but that question is completely stupid and if you are expecting a knowledgeable answer you are wasting your time asking. Apple DO NOT release information ahead of product launches and no Apple employees are openly members of this site so all posts here are simply speculation, rumour...

    Best ipad browser

    I'm having problems with Atomic becoming unresponsive after 3 or 4 clicks in a session. This has only happened since the last Atomic update. Anybody else having issues? (Before the usual suspects chime in I have done a two button reset (three times), I have not yet done an uninstall/resinstall...

    Help! Youtube videos won't play

    I have the same issue that some Youtube clips will play and some will not. I always assumed that it was because of the encoding and that some may be flash based. The video that was mentioned above does play on my iPad though.

    Help with my Ipad and 3G

    The very first thing people need to know before they can start giving sensible advice is what model iPhone do you have? If for example it's a iPhone 3G then you cannot use it as a wifi hotspot.

    'No SIM'

    My wife has exactly the same issue with he iPad 2 wifi+3G. Resets do not resolve the issue. From looking around using Google the sim card seems to often be the culprit so she took the iPad and card into the telco today and they happily without question replaced the sim (so happily and without...

    Specialty messenger bag for laptop, iPad, Kindle and iPhone

    The perfect bag is only the perfect bag as long as both the hardware and the requirements don't change. My wife and I both have perfect bags to carry out iPads and related things - both bags are different.

    You can only access an SD card via the Apple Camera Connection Kit and only then for still photos (not even video). Data is a non no.

    Apple Rumors

    The TV rumour has been around for a long, long time. Last I heard they are looking at a 2012 release at around US$1200. The TV will run iOS5 including internal storage and will effectively be an Apple TV with a screen plus the features of a traditional TV. As far as photography is concerned the...

    IPad2 as a satnav

    Kindle upload

    I think only the books that are achieved and are not actually on the Kindle. Amazon afaik won't let you have books on two devices at the same time. We use this system to share books between two iPads and one Kindle. All books are purchased on one Amazon account and then just shared between the...

    Buying U.S. iBooks while overseas

    What's wrong with using Amazon, iBooks or Kobo? Even here in Australia we have the ability to actually bike these fancy ebook things you talk about.I have all three of those products on my iPad and have books on all of them. Oh, they sell Kindles outside the US as well.

    3G iPad and ATT plans?

    How do you expect ant telco to have plans available for a product that is still months away from release? When I was in the USA in August it took all of 5 minutes to sign up for AT&T 3G. I just went to an Apple store and they gave me a sim then I went to a wifi enable cafe, got on line set up...

    Apples time servers

    Both my iPad and iPhone are (were) set to set the time automatically. I noticed over the last few days that they have both been consistently running about 5 minutes fast. Does anybody know is Apple are having problems with their time servers?

    I'm not sure whether this should be in the Hacks section (Mods please move if so) but Petapixel have published a step by step guide on unlocking the hidden camera panorama feature in iOS5 devices without actually jailbreaking the device.

    5.0.1 and battery life

    I watched two solid hours of video streamed via wifi on our home network last night after I upgraded to 5.0.1 and the battery meter went from 55% to 49% (Ipad 2).

    iOS 5.0.1 file size - Really Apple?

    I did my update via iTunes because I had the iPad connected at the time and it was the full 733MB as I said originally. Why do 700+ MB updates via iTunes if you only need a 30MB update via wifi? That's plain dumb on Apples part. All I can say is that the iTunes update worked perfectly.

    iOS 5.0.1 file size - Really Apple?

    733MB! I thought iOS 5 was supposed to do away with bloated update downloads. Or is this an admission that despite the 0.0.1 nomenclature this is a major bug fix?

    iPad locator is a joke

    The locator tool is awesome. When I've tried on on my ipad it's located it to within a couple of metres of its exact spot every time. As Colin said its not Apples problem if you loose your iPad. Do you expect Ford to find your car or Sony to trace your TV if you house gets burgled? At least...

    QR Codes - just discovered yet another use for the iPad!

    Be very, very careful with scanning QR codes. Only scan codes from reputable sources never scan any random code that you see on a forum for example or a in a blog. QR codes can contain viruses and trojans and all sorts of nasty stuff. Do some research on the topic. They are a great thing but...

    Confused about how iPad2 connects to other devices.

    You can't connect an unjailbroken iPad to external storage. Period. If you want additional storage you will need to use something like Dropbox or some other Cloud based service to upload your photos to. The iPad will not transfer movies via the CCK either only still photos. All up for the...

    Do you see people out and about with their ipads or tablets?

    Stopped at a suburban cafe in Melbourne on Friday morning for a coffee and was sitting there replying to some emails along with another guy who appeared to be doing the same thing. At a table next to me there were two late 20's women each with a kid about 18 months old in a high chair. BOTH...

    iMessage doesn't work? A possible explanation

    This forum often gets posts about iMessage not working well I have discovered on issue with it that is a possible cause for the send button to be greyed out when it should otherwise work. When you start an iMessage there is a line called Subject on the input screen. If you simply type your...

    Apple Inc make our life change from The old way of life to The Modern digital life.

    yep tried those as well had a couple of Pilots an original Palm Pilot and I think a mark 3 version plus several Windows CE based units. None of them really worked as a complete package the way the iPad does though and I always went back to a paper diary/organiser.

    Ripping DVDs and watching on IPAD 2

    Never had any luck with Handbrake and found it slow and flaky. I know its popular but it didn't work for me. I use a product from DVD Fab because I had it anyway.

    Apple Inc make our life change from The old way of life to The Modern digital life.

    Exactly what he said except I was a Day Timer person. I haven't read a paper novel since I got the iPad (read half a dozen on the iPad) and I get the morning newspaper on the iPad as well.

    Should I get the iPad 2 or wait for the iPad 3?

    Why don't you wait for the iPad 3 then decide to wait a little longer and get an iPad 4. :D Seriously, in tech items there is always a new improved product coming down the street and if you wait excessively long you miss out on plenty but you invariably don't gain much. As I tell people on...

    Connecting my iPad to Apple TV

    When you ay that you have turned on home sharing you do mean on a PC or Mac running iTunes don't you? Apple TV needs a computer on the same network running iTunes with home sharing turned on for it to be able to do the mirroring and other Apple related features.

    Assuming that you have iMessage set up correctly. The send button will not activate unless you are sending the message to a person on an iMessage enabled device. If you are just simply sending a message to a random email address you are out of luck.

    Camera Comnnection kit with usb that has photos on it

    I haven't tried this but why can't you put edited jpegs on a SD card with the same directory structure as they are from the camera and see if they transfer. AFAIK the iPad looks for a DCIM directory and will only transfer from that and nothing else.

    need help on switching between gsm and 3g mode

    If wifi is available and you have a connection to it the iPad will always use the wifi over the 3G. It will only use 3G when it can't connect to wifi.
