    $7 iPad stand.

    I picked up a little wire picture frame stand holder in crafts store - Michaels . $3.99 and folds flat for portability! works so great I picked up a second to leave on my desk at work. And it's hinged so varying angles are easy! 40 & 50$ stands looked nice but seem a crime to pay that much!

    What is the best screen protector you can buy?

    Based on my experience with several on my several iPhones, I am keeping plain clear glass on my iPad. Rationale being that by the time glass is scratched beyond tolerance, it'll be time for the new one. But that is only my opinion, though I am hell on equipment trashing cameras lenses and other...

    The Apple link above says: "Use Your iPad Regularly For proper reporting of the battery’s state of charge, be sure to go through at least one charge cycle per month (charging the battery to 100% and then completely running it down)." I usually don't worry about charging till it hits 20% unless I...

    Double negation in English

    Unfortunately, the style of speaking incorrectly has become so widespread as to become standard. I find it quite annoying. It didn't take me long once out of Brooklyn to drop the the brooklynese accent and style! I've never placed the punctuation inside quotes unless it is part of the quote. It...

    Time Wasted to Copy/Paste...

    I'd like to see a comparison of that data compared to a computer with mouse. How much time to reach for mouse, align cursor, click, select and copy? That would be meaningful, well, useful, well it would seem to provide some substance...

    Xmarks I have been using Xmarks. Online bookmarks storage. Auto or manual Sync with your various equipment or just keep it online. I don't know how it works with safari, I just use it as a central repository for all work and play links

    Do you turn off your ipad?

    I shut it off at night. Force of habit from too much time with Microsoft products - shutting off to clean up the OS in the reboot. Not likely to need the daily 'purge' but I figure it won't do any harm

    The battery university is an excellent resource! The information presented is accurate and complete, though the science interspersed may bore the average consumer. The magic wrapped up in those little cases is quite complex, but simple rules do apply: Read and follow manufacturers...

    Day 3.0

    On third day with my 64gb 3G iPad and quite enjoying it. I had 3 iphones before and still a windows (shudder) laptop and pc. The jump from cute little powerhouse mini iPhone to 'full-size' iPad was a bit dizzying. Granted the size made all the difference - being able to see it all clearly...

    3G first month usage

    Planning to pick up 16gb 3g ipad today I checked my iPhone plan history and only once used more than 60mb in a month. I don't watch video or stream anything data-intensive but am on the iPhone constantly, if I don't get it today, I'm not worried about passing the 2gb limit.
