    Anybody like me?: Love the iPad, but prefer Android phones over the iPhone?

    Here is a point that makes the iPhone/iOS not for me... unless you are jailbroken, to toggle bluetooth on/off from the home screen, you have to tap your screen 3 times and one more to toggle. Settings/General/Bluetooth/On or Off. WHY??? I use my iPad at a more leisurely pace than my phone...

    Anybody like me?: Love the iPad, but prefer Android phones over the iPhone?

    I text using Google Voice. Same single thread on my iPad, ex-iPhone 4S, present RAZR Maxx, Work PC, Home iMac, friends computer etc etc... plus it's free and saves me $10 a month. I use LastPass for secure passwords and bookmarks. Works on all the devices I listed prior. Albeit, it costs $12...

    Anybody like me?: Love the iPad, but prefer Android phones over the iPhone?

    No question iCloud is great for what you are doing. I use Exchange and Dropbox instead. I feel it gives me more options in the future than iCloud. But thats just me.

    Anybody like me?: Love the iPad, but prefer Android phones over the iPhone?

    I have the exact same sentiments... and, for me, the iPhone is just too small. My counter point in the tablet world, is the android tablets are great until you try to use them in portrait mode. In portrait, android tablets become too awkward compared to the iPad. The iPad is the perfect table...

    Anybody like me?: Love the iPad, but prefer Android phones over the iPhone?

    I know some may think this is weird... but I detest android tablets (and I have owned a few), but I really like android phones over the iPhone (including the 4S). I love my 32gb 4G iPad... and will soon be rocking the Galaxy SIII at the end of this month. Anybody else share the same preference?

    Smart Cover leaving lines on screen.

    When I go to turn on my iPad, I can see lines on my screen left by the smart cover. A quick wipe of the screen removes them, but I am afraid that over time the marks will be permanent. While I have never used screen shields on any of my idevices in the past ( I detest them ), am I going to need...

    Ipad as phone?

    I use the iPhone Vonage app to make free calls via wifi. 1. The app is free and allows you to make free calls to landlines in the US. (international calls are not free) 2. The receiving caller sees your real number (when signing up for the Vonage app, Vonage verifies your id by calling you via...

    Its been a few months... why no Official Facebook App for iPad?

    I just updated my status using the full Web site. Clicked on "What's on your mind?", keyboard came up and my test posted correctly. Same deal with posting on a wall.... no issues.

    Its been a few months... why no Official Facebook App for iPad?

    Thats not entirely true... Full FB, Mobile FB, and Touch FB Websites dont allow you to upload photos via iPad's Safari browser. (Flash is needed for facebook.com to upload photos) However the iPhone Facebook app does allow you to upload photos from the iPad (no flash needed). I realize I could...

    What are good iPhone apps for the iPad

    You can make free domestic calls to landlines via Wifi using the iPhone Vonage app. Its free and it presents the person with your actual number caller ID. (when registering the app, Vonage will call your phone number, land-line, cell etc etc and ask for a code to verify your account. That number...

    Turn ipad into a cell phone

    Take a look at the iPhone Vonage App. The Vonage iPhone App (NOT Touch app) works great on the iPad. It has a couple of advantages over others besides being free for stateside calls. International is fee based. 1. No commercial - with Whistle you have to listen to a commercial before...

    WiFi Indicator missing after JB.

    I JB'd my iPad via Spirit/Mac yesterday. Everything works ok, but my WiFi indicator went missing. The iPad still connects to a WiFi connection and functions correctly, but the indicator icon is missing. Since I am OCD... this bothers me greatly. :D Anybody else experience the same? Any...

    Received Camera Connection Kit - Short Video Demo Inside.

    Someone on YouTube asked if the iPad reduced RAW images when importing from the iPad to Aperture. I took a test photo with my Olympus E-P2 Camera set in RAW mode. The test shot reported by the camera was 12.91 MB, 4032x3024. After importing the shot into my iPad via the Camera Connection Kit...

    Received Camera Connection Kit - Short Video Demo Inside.

    Nice camera... I sold my Nikon D90 and am really enjoying the Micro 4/3 format. I am shooting way more pictures with my Oly E-P2 than I did with the Nikon. My decision wasn't based on brand vs brand, but size vs size. Hauling around the D90 with a couple lens wasn't my cup-o-tea. I have a little...

    Received Camera Connection Kit - Short Video Demo Inside.

    I received a question from YouTube asking me if the USB Adapter would work with a USB Card Reader. After reading the message I promptly got out my SanDisk MicroMate Card Reader and plugged it into the USB Camera Connection Kit. At first I thought it was going to work, but a Dialogue Box popped...

    Hummm... It would be nice to preview them full sized, perhaps an update will come in the near future. I got the kit to "dump" photos off my camera to clear room off my card. LOL... I probably should have just bought another card! Oh well... its still pretty neat. I am sure it will come in...

    Negative reviews by teenagers are worthless 99% of the time.... which just also happens to be 99% of the negative reviews in the iTunes app store.

    iPad and Magic Jack

    The Vonage iPhone app allows you to make unlimited domestic VOIP calls. No Vonage account needed. It should work on iPad. Better value than Skype for domestic calls.

    Tip: You can put 6 Icons on your App Tray

    Why did you buy hundreds of apps when the iPhone has even less pages than the iPad? Or were you jailbroken? If so, the iPad will have the "cure" soon enough. :D Most of my iPhone apps look like crap in the iPad when 2x'd ... unless I absolutely need it, I dont plan on running any on the iPad.

    Tip: You can put 6 Icons on your App Tray

    Its the very bottom row of icons on the iPad, just above the iPad button. The default icons are Safari, Mail, Photos, and iPod. You can drag 2 more icons from any screen and add them to your app tray. You can also drag off any of the default icons and replace them with ones of your choosing.

    Tip: You can put 6 Icons on your App Tray

    If I remember correctly, you could only have 4 with the iPhone unless you jailbreaked your phone. You can have 6 on the iPad without jailbraking it.

    How Many People Have No Tracking Updates?

    I have 2 coming... both pre-ordered on the first day. The 16gb is out of Louisville heading to MI. The 64gb is still showing in China, it was the one I first got a shipping notice on AND shipping exceptions all the way to my home town... which is where I suspect it really is. Are we all 64GB'ers?

    Buy iBooks on iPad and iTunes??

    Buy iBooks on iPad and iTunes??

    Will we be able to purchase iBooks on iTunes? Or are we stuck buying them on the iPad? Not interesting in reading them on my computer and not expecting to, but it would be nice to browse the iBook catalog in iTunes and purchase them just like apps.
