    How do I convert a DVD to iPad?

    No joy. Encryption took 8 hours and all I got was garbage. :( Pam

    Looking for an app that will launch PDF files

    I recommend a couple programs for your wife. First, get Dropbox. That will easily allow her share files between her computer and ipad. That's the easiest way I know to transfer files to my ipad. Then, either iBook or Tomes will read PDF files just fine. I haven't looked at Goodreader yet...

    How do I convert a DVD to iPad?

    I'm trying Handbrake and I've got a question. So far I have put a DVD in my computer, launched Handbrake, and selected the "ipad" preset. Then I chose the source (no trouble finding the movie) and clicked start. It's now encoding... Here's the question... Time remaining is 7 hours and...

    What video formats does iPad2 support?

    Ok, I've got this working now. I ended up downloading Debut video capture software (free) which included Prism convert (also free). Recorded my presentation in wmv, then converted it to mp4. Dropped it into Dropbox and picked it up on my iPad. The whole thing was very easy! The video ran...

    Second Life?

    Is there a way to run Second Life on an ipad? I'm not finding anything. Pam

    Move-at-your-own-pace puzzle games

    Oh, and add to that the fact that we expect to pay just a couple dollars at most for our games now.... I remember spending $40 or more for some of those original Myst games. I don't think there are enough people like me, who are willing to pay that kind of money to support developing games of...

    iPad 2 covers....????

    Can't do anything about the strap, but this model does come in black too! Pam

    Move-at-your-own-pace puzzle games

    Thanks for the suggestions! I downloaded Drawn: The Painted Tower, and I'm enjoying it so far. Nothing on the order of myst, but it would seem that's a bygone age. Game releases used to be a big deal. Companies spent a lot more time and effort because there weren't as many. Now new games...

    What video formats does iPad2 support?

    before I spend money on the app, I have a few questions. I just spent a week and a half on these presentations and they're loaded with internal slide shows, animated graphics, custom animations, etc... Is keynote going to support all that once I import the presentation? Or am I looking at...

    What video formats does iPad2 support?

    I'm leaving in a couple days to give a couple lectures at a conference in Europe. Rather than take my laptop, I'm opting to take my iPad this time, which means I won't have the PowerPoint software with me to rehearse (the presentation itself is making the trip on a thumb drive). Today I got...

    iPad 2 covers....????

    The Khomo case I ordered arrived yesterday. For the price, it's great! Ridged enough to really protect my ipad2, has the hole for the camera, thin profile that doesn't add too much bulk to the unit. And it stands up two ways nicely. Lower for typing and more upright for video viewing and...

    SquareTrade

    Obviously, I won't know how difficult a claim is until I have one (hopefully never!). But I did do a side by side comparison and SquareTrade actually covers MORE than BB. BB has an exclusion for submersion. SquareTrade covers that. Also, BB charged extra for the prorated buy back, and that was...

    SquareTrade

    Ok, I'm officially VERY impressed with the customer service at Square Trade, a third party insurance provider for consumer electronics. I got my ipad at Best Buy because I wanted an accidental damage warranty, and they were the only once I knew of who offered it. But I paid $289 for a...

    Dropbox for Tomes?

    I downloaded Tomes when it was called "Bookshelf". Now that it's changed to "Tomes" my dropbox can't find it anymore. According the Tomes documentation it supports Dropbox. How do I make Dropbox see Tomes as an export option? Thanks! Pam

    Best passwords / security app available

    I wrote to splash data about using it across multiple devices. Got a reply today. They say version 6 will be out in a few weeks and will support the iPad and updating across multiple devices. I've liked this software so I'll be waiting for the update rather than switching to something else.

    The Official I got my iPad 2 Thread!

    Aaarrrgggg! That's less than a third of what I paid for my warranty! I wonder if I can "return" my BB warranty? Pam

    Case, what are you using?

    I just ordered the KHOMO Deluxe Case from Amazon. At just $14.99 it's a bargain and I got free shipping with amazon prime to boot. It claims to be intended for the ipad2. Even if it turns out not to be perfect, I won't be out much, and it will do while I take my time hunting for "the perfect...

    The Official I got my iPad 2 Thread!

    Got mine at Best Buy on Friday. Was about 30th in line. No problem getting my 64g wifi. I chose Best Buy because they were the only ones I knew of who offered a warranty that covered glass breakage. You can do almost ANYTHING under the BB warranty and get it fixed or replaced. With my...

    Are you able to sync across all those platforms with one database? I got SpashID for my iphone and it syncs with my desktop, but I can't figure out how to add my ipad to the loop. Help! Pam

    Move-at-your-own-pace puzzle games

    I'm looking for myst-like games for my iPad2 with really good graphics (not cartoony). The "find hidden objects" aspect of most of them gets boring really fast. I prefer to solve puzzles to progress through the story. And I don't enjoy racing a clock. Years ago, back when dinosaurs roamed...

    If this exists, count me in... Yesterday I discovered "iPad" is actually an acronym for "I Played All Day". LOL Pam

    Is there a way to put DVD movies onto the ipad2 so you can watch them on flights that don't have wifi? I travel a lot.... Pam

    What to do with ipad?

    New to ipad

    I'm Pam and I got my first iPad yesterday. Yes, I braved the craziness and got an iPad2. I'm also new to playing games in a touchscreen environment. Mostly I like "move at our own pace" myst-like games, but it's all been mouse driven up to now, and it's been a very long time since I played at...
