    Can I exist with an iPad and no computer?

    I'd say no, Rebecca. There are just too many things we can't do yet on the iPad, or can't do comfortably. The two devices are really complementary, not redundant. Wouldn't change my iPad for anything though!

    Get the regular iPad not the mini if you'll be reading magazines. Mini screen is a bit too small for optimized mag reading.

    How do you access iPF? App or browser?

    I use an RSS reader, River of News. I find it a much faster way to scroll through all my RSS feeds.

    The iPad helped medical students score 23% higher at exams

    My son is in is in this classroom, lucky to be part of this innovative and forward-looking experiment to train future doctors. Attendance at all classes is mandatory--they check in on their iPads at the beginning of each class. They take notes on their iPads or laptops right on the power point...

    How much can I get for my ipad 3?

    DON'T GO THIS ROUTE! I sent Amazon my iPad 1 with the original box, packing, and Apple sticker. They returned it without the original box! Eventually i sold it on eBay but felt really burned that Amazon vendors would rip me off this way. The overseas call center did nothing to help me about the...

    Hue iOS-Controlled Light bulb System Goes Onsale in Apple Stores

    bulbs uses 80% less juice than a regular light bulb, despite giving off the equivalent light to a 500-watt bulb Sounds exciting, but in fact 600 lumens is eqivalent only to 50 watts--pretty dim.

    Ipad 4?

    In a sense, you're throwing money away if you don't do the exchange. Your iPad 3 just lost about $200 in value when Apple introduced the new model, while your new 4 will be worth the full price you paid.

    Producing images for larger print

    You might check out how David Hockney does this. He has a current exhibit in Germany, "A Bigger Picture" with floor to ceiling paintings done on his iPad with the Brushes app. Truly breathtaking! You might find out how he does this through a web search.

    iBook Author

    I had fun the past few weeks using iBooks Author to create a book for iPad about travels in Spain this May. Even though it was designed for textbooks, people have now used the free software to create thousands of multimedia books on ordinary topics such as how-to, travel, language learning, art...

    iPad Mini Could Eventually Outsell the Regular-Sized iPad

    I agree. Tried the Kindle Fire but returned it. It was just too small for watching movies and other visuals.. The iPad is just thw right size. It's a good idea for Apple to offer choices, however.

    Check the Hockney exhibit out I have to second the op about the stunning David Hockney exhibit with a huge room of his paintings done with the Brushes app on the iPad. Unbelievably stunning! If you can make it to the Guggenheim in Bilbao by Sept. 30 or Germany this fall, be sure not to miss...

    What does up to 9hr means?

    Try turning your brightness level down under Settings. Mine was using battery fast last week because i forgot I had turned up the brightness when I was outside. Turned it down and battery capacity is back to normal.

    How do I stop app requests when browsing a forum with Safari?

    Yes, I'm extremely frustrated with this pop up that started two weeks ago. I'm almost ready to leave the forum because of it. I need to use my RSS reader to get through all my feeds efficiently. Now iPad Forum wants to force me to use their app. I have 300 apps and don't need a redundant one...

    You don't have to downlad a dictionary. You do have to press down on the word with your finger. Ths is an iPad gesture, not one belonging to ndividual book aps. So it works in RSS feeds, the NYTimes app, and many others. Just make sure you're holding down long enough on the word.

    Yes. It's just gotten that way with the new upgrade for iPad 3. I've given up and am teaching myself to use the tap rather than the turn, but I don't like the change.

    Hold your finger down on a word in the passage. When the blue dots appear move them to the beginnng and end of what you want to highlight. Then press highlight. Check the iPad users manual which is free in iBooks.

    VoiceSo Dictation not Siri !

    Well, you can't tell VD "Wake me up at 6:30" an have it automatically set your alarm for you, or "Send Mary an email that i'll stop at the store on my way home." It's a shame the great new device lacks Siri. I guess Apple wants to keep it to sell more iPhones. But after paying $900 for the...

    iPad Wifi VS 3G

    Just to clarify: you will need to activate 3G (or 4g on the new one) service when you want to use the GPS. That means paying ATT or Verizon for a month's activation when you travel. I find it a super useful service to have available, especially if you don't have or don't want to carry another...
