    Annoying "pop-ups"

    You understand perfectly! the difference between my PC and my iPad 3 is that, on the PC, you must hover over the link to get the pop-up which can be deleted with the "X". On the iPad, the add pops up randomly while you are on the page. There is no "X" to remove it so you must wait for it to go...

    Annoying "pop-ups"

    Happens on a couple of forums... A random word in the text is suddenly converted to a hyperlink to an app in the App Store. Shortly thereafter a pop-up appears over the hyperlink (obscuring the text) prompting me to download the app. The pop-up disappears after a few seconds and reappears a...

    TIPS AND TRICKS - for those of us who don't know!

    Apps that are closed (when you open a different app etc.) typically remain in memory in an inert state unless they are designed to run in the background. Those static apps do not cause an additional battery drain, but can take up valuable memory. "Deleting" them frees up available memory, but...

    Creating a file

    I consider ibisMail to be vastly superior to the stock iPad mail client. You can create file folders that is available off-line.

    Printing to a wired printer

    Try Printer Pro. It allows the iPad to communicate wirelessly with the computer which, in turn, sends the document to the attached printer.

    Belkin makes a 120 volt six outlet box that plugs into an existing duplex outlet. It has USB ports with enough available current to charge the new iPad. I ought mine from Costco's warehouse.

    Photos taken by the iPad cameras or downloaded via the Camera Connection kit can be deleted by the iPad. Photos loaded from a PC via iTunes can only be deleted by the PC.

    Keyboard issue

    If you do a lot of typing, you should consider getting a small Bluetooth keyboard.

    Ipad 3 charged so long

    I have read in other threads that the battery is not fully charged when it first indicates 100% and you should let it charge for an additional hour. Charging with the iPad off will let it charge faster, but I doubt that it will extend the use time.

    books and mags

    Use Dropbox. (Dropbox must be installed on both your PC and iPad). Open Dropbox on the PC and drag and drop your book or other document into the Document folder. Open Dropbox on your iPad, open Documents and open the book (it will probably give you a "cannot open" message). Ignore any error...

    iPad 3 screen warm-up time?

    If the light bleed is caused by adhesive curing, it should go away with time. This was a problem with some early iPad 2's.

    No More "Mail"

    I finally got fed up with the inability to create new folders or delete obsolete/erroneous addresses in Apple Mail. The Mail icon has been moved to the last page and replaced by ibisMail for iPad. Am I wrong to believe that 3rd party apps are usually superior to some native apple apps? Bill

    TIPS AND TRICKS - for those of us who don't know!

    Deleting lengthy URLs in Safari This may be old news to some experienced users, But rather than using the "back" key to eliminate a long URL, I discovered that you can do a slow double-tap on the URL, choose "Select All" from the pop-up then "Cut". This clears the field for a new entry.☺

    Camera Connection Kit & iPad3: Still Won't Work

    iPad requires (dumb requirement) that photo names be exactly 8 digits with a 3 digit extension - abcdefgh.jpg If you have renamed the photos, only the ones with an 8 digit name will be recognized. The camera kit works fine with my iPad 3.

    I justified my purchase of an iPad3 "for business" and discovered it to be the most fun & useful toy I own (motorcycle excepted). I'm in the process of identifying and loading useful apps and hoping that Bill Gates will release an Office app soon. With the availibility of Kindle and Nook apps...
