    Remember that Air Video can convert and stream the video simultaneously saving pre conversion time. If time is of the essence that is, otherwise you can also flag videos from your shared folder(s) for conversion even while you stream another.

    OMG I loved your book, it got me daydreaming beyond belief! I don't recall where I found it, perhaps here on the Forums, but I'm sure glad I did. What an original story and I loved the Textee's in the book. I remember reading that story back when the iPad was first shipping and thinking how...

    Need help can't find this any where

    Clearly you have to get the iPad into DFU mode and do a Factory Restore using the latest iOS. Then restore using a good known backup, possibly one before you Jail-broke or one that was known to work previously. If that fails after restore, set it up as a new iPad, Rinse and Repeat. Had...

    Signing iPad Documents I use Sign My Pad from Autriv. It's nice to accept my work orders as a PDF in e-mail and open them in Sign My Pad. I can then complete all the information throughout the PDF, no matter what page you choose and also add drawings (using the signature option) and the...

    iPad sync problem

    Its somewhat confusing reading what you just said too. There is no iPad Tab, but I think you meant Music Tab, which doesn't actually list any music. But in iTunes in the Menu Music on the Left (Not a Tab) shows all your music. I would also check to see what Playlists you have created as they...

    Move apps to another page on desktop?

    Using native OS and no Jailbreak, the icons fill top to bottom but can be arranged in any order on the iPad or via iTunes when synching. You don't have to fill a page but they will always fill top down in That order as you add apps. In iOS4 you will have the added ability to manage apps...

    Not understanding your incepted use of the iPad, it sounds as though hacking it as a desktop or notebook is the norm for you. You SSH with Linux but aren't aware of a simple spotlight feature one screen over?? Sorry but it sounds like being your first Mac/Apple device, you may want to get...

    12V charging cable....OK with iPad ?

    Most iPod or iPhone adapters will tell you on the screen of the device after plugging it in, whether it's compatible. Also compare the miliampres rating between the two. If the 12volt adapter is rated lower than the original charger, you should be fine. Some cabling adapters, especially those...

    ATT Unlimited Plan Extended.

    I've thought about canceling for a month to test that theory, but two things are holding me back. 1) The pre orders for iPhone 4 begin tomorrow and I have many things to sort with ATT over my family plan. Changing unlimited to 2G/limit on two of the phones and keeping it on the others. 2)...

    I don't understand why the Apple case is so hard to find?!

    I bought mine with he WiFi pre-orders, since then I have been looking for another locally since I bought the 3G version at Best Buy. I passed up a slightly used one once at a Best Buy I visited while in another town working. It was listed or marked down as $30 and needed a good cleaning...

    Where's the ARROW keys????

    Just a side note on word or letter specific selecting. Obviously one tap and hold you get the magnifying glass, but another quick selection or editing tool is to double tap then long hold. Once you get the right combo you will notice instead of a round magnifying glass, you get a rectangular...

    Need a very lightweight case with access to power adapter

    I too have the Apple Case from day one for my WiFi iPad and once I got my 3G 64 iPad it immediately moved over to the case and am thinking of buying another case to use again for the WiFi only version. Mostly because the Apple case has proven to be very beneficial in both protecting and in...

    Apple iPad Case Mod Stand

    This presentation post gets my vote for the best posting from any others in the entire forum! Especially when its so helpful and in an un-arrogant way, some people just go off and think what they post is final word and not always helpful, especially when it's something they only parrot from...

    Weird battery life problem

    Something else to think about... I know most of you got your new iPad and on first power up had a little less than or at 100% charge. You may have even noticed it lasting longer on this 100% charge than on any other since then. The thing is and this is directed at all i devices ( as well...

    How to Use BTstack GPS to add GPS to a Jailbroken Wi-Fi iPad

    Kind of vague in some areas, like does the BT GPS function with the native Google Maps app? One of the first things I tried when I got my WiFi only iPad, was to pair a BT GPS to it for mapping and direction. Obviously it wouldn't work, so its nice to see this option now for those who wish to...

    iPad Usability Study Finds iPad Apps Beautiful but Frustrating

    Let me guess, in this study they were using monkeys... After 5 seconds even in an unfamiliar app, most users can assimilate where most controls are and what is functional or not. Those users of iPhones and iPod Touches would be even more familiar, especially when moving to an app on the iPad...

    Think first!

    I think a lot of people are assuming too much from ayerbusiness post, what I think he meant was whether or not you should buy 3G or WiFi and to take the time while waiting for your iPad to be available/restocked, to make a more justified decision between the two. Funny thing is though, I have...

    iPad is not a Note taking device

    I agree with each note app I try, it all boils down to the thickness of the hand writing lines. Even above all the added or bonus features, the lines have to look as though your writing not drawing with a thick crayon. Also these are great lists for note taking apps, but one that keeps...
