    Anyone rent movies from itunes?

    I have had a similar experience with rental so I choose to purchase them in Itunes on my host computer, then sync them to the IPAD. They show up in the videos application and the wife can watch them at her leisure. You can get TV shows for $2-3 each, down load them to Itunes and then sync...

    My iPad Review, and iPad vs. Kindle 2

    In spite of what others have stated as fact, there is diversity in opinion on what constitutes an e reader. MobileRead Wiki - LCD E-Book Reader Matrix Wiki contains a list of LCD based e-book readers and some believe that the LCD based readers are superior. One of the beauties of the...

    Reasons the iPad is Better than a Netbook

    So I am confused. Apple failed to get the IPAD certified for use in Isreal, based on their laws that are well understood and its Isreal's fault? Grape or Cherry?

    Boston Herald Bashes iPad

    I am sorry, but where was the bashing? He had a lot of positive comments. And he correctly stated that the IPAD has a limited keyboard but that you can add an external one. And if you want to do hard core computer work or run your aps, the IPAD will not so that. This looks more like fact...

    iPad vs HP Slate

    LOLOLOL Some of you Apple Kool-Aide drinkers crack me up. The IPAD is a really big IPOD / toy. The Slate apparently actually runs an operating system and may be an actual computer. If you want a big IPOD / toy, like I did when I bought my IPAD, then its wonderful. If you want a computer then...

    A/V cables

    I plugged my IPAD directly into the AV cable in place of my IPOD and it worked just fine. I have not tested every application but this test leads me to believe that any standard cable will plug in and work. I mean, its designed to accept any standard headphone with micro plugs so . . . Is...

    1) it is premature to declair the death of the mouse. It gets nice attention for the author but is totally wrong headed. The mouse is a convenient, easy to use, intuitive input device and every desktop and "real" computer uses one today to great effect. If you want to do real work, or play...

    Traveling with the iPad

    I too have been impressed by the IPAD and how well it does what it does. But I can not travel without my i7, dual SSD, hidef laptop. I have to get my gaming fix and the IPAD will never replace a laptop for WOW and Planetside. :-)

    Wifi Strength?

    Add movies to iPad

    ITUNES wants MPEG4 format for import. I rip using CUCUSOFT for Apple TV to rip movies. In its infinite wisdom, ITUNES does not give you an error message, it just lays there and does nothing if it does not like the size or format of the movie. I have found that previous versions of ITUNES did...

    I am getting a screen protector mostly for the fingerprints. My experience is they are much easier to clean off the protector vice the screen. I am also getting a skin for it. Its so heavy that it sets on its back much of the time and will get damaged unless its protected. I lay mine glass...

    second most irritating thing about my IPAD experience is the fingerprints. Have to clean it every time I use it. Ughhh I have tried Kindle for IPAD and really like it. But for the weight that precludes laying down and reading, its a very nice reader.

    Apple iTunes v9 - Tips on Sharing

    We get at least one major OS upgrade for free

    I still have a gen1 IPOD. What do you mean, not an issue LOL They will have to do what ever updates are necessary to keep the IPAD current with ITUNES store changes. That is why my Apple TVs have been getting free OS upgrades since day 1. And all my various IPODS same thing. They need to be...

    Screen Protector--Necessary or Not?

    I dropped my IPHONE one time too many. Like toast it fell buttered side down. Broke the glass screen. The only thing that kept it from falling out on the ground and probably destroying the phone is the plastic screen protector I put over the face of the screen. You could see the cracks...

    Kindle for the iPad

    quote] Turn it sideways and it is about the same size as reading a paperback book. What's the problem? I have my IPAD on order, but I can answer your question. A paper back book will not break if you drop it, it contains no glass. A paper back book will git into your pocket. I have a...

    Kindle for the iPad

    Turn it sideways and it is about the same size as reading a paperback book. What's the problem? For me, its not portable, its luggable. I have 4 laptops of varying degrees of portability and capability and do not need a "fragile" glass faced device that I have to worry about dropping or...

    Sharing iTunes with iPod

    Good points. I dont have any experience with purchasing from ITUNES Store with other than a PC running ITUNES. I have not purchased via Apple TV because I have 4 of them and its just easier to purchase from the host.

    Sharing iTunes with iPod

    Actually, I did not find enough information in your question to give a complete answer. Instead let me explain some of my personal lessons learned and see if any of this helps. ITUNES is an application that runs on a primary host. The hose can be a Win box as in my case or any Apple OS...

    Synching Contacts/Windows 7 to Touch/Ipad

    You did not say what OS you were running when the sync was working ok for you. If you migrated from XP to 7 then you had to do a rebuild and lost all your XP apps and data unless you saved them off somewhere or went to a new system drive. In which case you should try running the aps in win7...

    Kindle for the iPad

    LOL I have been living with my Kindle2 for months and love it. The portability and similarity to a printed page are big plusses for me. Try laying in bed and holding an IPAD in one hand while reading at night. I dont think it will work for a lot of us. The IPAD has a lot going for it but...

    Can I buy ebooks now?

    My personal experience with Amazon over the past year has been very positive. I have a Kindle and IPONE reader. I use them both extensively.
