    Cannot get mail. The connection to the server failed.

    I fixed it. The new Yahoo password had been the problem. I deleted the account and then added it again.

    The iPad hashtags do work on Twitter but the # symbol doesn't light up to indicate this on the iPad. Thus my confusion. Thanks to all.

    It seems that this problem is not only on Google News, I just noting it in a museum mailing.

    Google page scrolling problem?

    Anyone else notice that in the last day or so, when going to a news link item on Google News, the page won't scroll down? It's OK on other sites.

    ICloud security code phone text message doesn't arrive

    Online it said to reset the Keychain, which I did, and did see the phone number to enter. I re-entered the few passwords which weren't automatically entered. All this because I wanted to install an MP3 audio file last night. Thanks to all for your help.

    ICloud security code phone text message doesn't arrive

    I followed these instructions but there is no place to check or enter a telephone number. Yet they must have it since the last two phone number digits are correct. But the passwords seem to work and be entered nevertheless. Some kind of glitch.

    I reinstalled the software on my iPad 2 since my Windows pc iTunes didn't recognize it, reinstalled the apps and books and bookmarks which went OK, but am unable to get the Keychain phone text verification number to get the passwords automatically installed. I've tried 6 times since last night...

    Add audio file to iPad?

    My iPad works fine and I have the new update. I've never been able to play a particular audio file (originally WMA format, just words, that I created) on the iPad unless it is connected to my Windows computer. I can see it in in the songs list of the iPad when it is connected to the computer but...

    PC can'r read iPad 2--Restore needed?

    I had to completely reinstall the software on my Windows 7 pc this weekend following a MS update. Thankfully, I had made reinstall discs when I bought the pc. I just plugged in the iPad 2 and was told that it could not read the contents but that I could reinstall the iPad OS, which would wipe...

    Google News ID

    Thanks for the advice re privacy. It did work. I seem to have learned to operate the iPad mostly by hit-and-miss. But the iPad is a wonderful business tool. I never would have been able to answer mail or post things so often and quickly without it.

    How to read books offline?

    I prefer to read books on the iPad.The Kindle and Nook apps work fine for reading, as does the iBook app, and I believe that most free Gutenberg E-books are available in the iBook store and other ePub documents can be opened automatically in iBooks. The Kindle and iBook apps seem to work better...

    Google News ID

    When going to Google News using the latest IOS on an iPad 2, my accurate e-mail address comes up despite my using a VPN. I've reset the advertiser ID yet this still occurs. How can I disable this identification with Google News? Thanks. I've stopped this in the past but don't remember how.

    Keychain- What website's passwords saved? IPad 2

    Maybe I should have been clearer. When Safari saves passwords it asks if it should do so for that particular website. With Keychain, are passwords automatically saved for apps without asking for this permission? If so, I'd be concerned.

    Keychain- What website's passwords saved? IPad 2

    Does Keychain save passwords for only Safari browser websites or for those of other apps too? Thanks. There are some apps, as banking, in which I never save passwords.

    Camera Connector Kit

    Months after buying it, I just began using a Camera Connector Kit to connect a USB, smaller but full size for easy typing, keyboard to the iPad 2 and, despite the initial message that the attachment doesn't work, it works fine and, together with the Pages APP. makes a lightweight writing tool...

    iOS 7 on iPad 2

    Wifi is better and screen changes noticeably more quickly. Has a "cleaner" look which some may prefer. Overall, a worthwhile upgrade.

    IBook store -- Why no app for Android and Windows?

    Apple certainly makes money with iTunes which I never expected to use but wound up buying much from and consider wonderful. The reluctance to take more seriously the potential iBook market which, including the textbook market, can be huge, puzzles me. And it's not even that it would take much...

    How to rename photos--website confuses them

    When I downloaded a photo to my website I just noticed that it went to the wrong page, it substituting for another photo, so I deleted the new photo. Both photos seem to have the same name (fake path.jpg) and this is likely the reason for the confusion. How can this be corrected? There seems no...

    IBook store -- Why no app for Android and Windows?

    I must say that, contrary to my initial expectations when I bought my iPad 2 two years ago, I find it far more useful as a business tool than I had ever expected, for reading, research, and E-mail. But Apple should have an iBook store app for Android and Windows gadgets if they are serious about...

    I've been having a recent problem with Google calendar data disappearing and discovered the iPad calendar to which the Google calendar sync'd OK. Is there some way to export the iPad 2 calendar data to a computer via Pages or something else so that I can rely on it? is there some way to print...

    cable to connect ipad in your car?

    You can get cords cheaply (several dollars) at Amazon or WalMart that work great but avoid the ones from dollar stores. My experiences is that they don't last for long.

    Saving files using Pages app

    Thanks for your quick, informative response. I'm glad to learn that all files are automatically saved. It's simplest for me to E-mail the file to myself and then open it in the pc. I haven't tried the iCloud yet. I was surprised when I learned that I was able to burn from iTunes a dozen of the...

    Saving files using Pages app

    I've been using my iPad2 with a USB keyboard and Pages app, which is far more useful than I had imagined it would be. I've been sending a copy of my writing to my E-mail and this works fine. Two questions: (1) One option is to save the file to iTunes and I tried this also but now I can't find...

    USB memory drive with iPad2?

    I just bought the photo adapter and hooked up a USB keyboard to the iPad without problem and it works fine though the iPad message said that the device wasn't recognized. I was wondering if a USB memory drive could be used with some word processing app too. Anyone know of such an app? Pages...

    AA battery iPad charger?

    Having lost power due to the storm for, thankfully, just 20 hours or so, I was wondering if there is a gadget to operate an iPad off of AA batteries, not a rechargeable battery pack supply, the reviews of several seeming wanting. And why not an AA powered netbook too. Disasters get one to...

    Writing books using iWorks/Pages

    I've been writing books using MS word to set up the page formatting, saving it in doc format and then opening the file in LibreOffice to convert it into a PDF file for the publisher since MS PDFs tend to be terrible. This morning I noticed that the MS Word had garbled the last few chapters of...

    Dropbox passcode question

    I just installed the Dropbox app. It has a passcode protection which deletes all data after 10 failed entry attempts. I am unable to turn it on, the entry being grayed out. Is this because of the iPad's passcode protection which does the same thing if lost? Or must I first change something in...

    Location Services on IOS6 can't be turned off

    I first noticed it after the IOS6 upgrade. I have everything backed up to my PC and thought of deleting all the apps and seeing if the problem persists. But I also find that the new maps app can't be deleted and the problem may derive from it, so... None of the other apps uses the location...

    The problem is that it won't turn off. Touching the button has no effect.
