    How many of you will consider an Android Tablet?

    The Apple AppStore is so over-crowded with crappy, useless applications, I'll be thrilled to have a tablet that is more open to developers. Apple is making the same mistake that it made in the 80s - over-controlling developers. This stifles competition and sends programmers to other platforms...

    Would you be interested in a 7-inch Apple iPad?

    I think, generally speaking, I'd prefer the 9.7 inch version. But there are times when it would be nice to have a 7 inch version. If they make one, I'll probably end up owning both.

    How do you clean the fingerprints off the iPad screen?

    Can't answer that one, but I don't want to be the one to test it.

    How do you clean the fingerprints off the iPad screen?

    Yikes!! I'm pretty sure you don't want to use ANY type of solvent to clean the iPad screen. Pretty good chance it will dissolve the oleophobic coating. And definitely do not use paper products. They are contain tiny wood fibers. Use soft cotton or special optical products only. Alcohol and...

    Taking your iPad out in the wild

    Take mine with me anytime I may have to wait. I take it in the car almost everytime I go out.

    iPad road trip

    Appolicious is a nice little free app that helps you keep on top of iPad news and reviews of new apps.

    What Colors Do People Want?

    Good observation, but I think you're getting caught up in the form factor. The eazel does have the general outline shape of a laptop. But that is because it has two requirements among others: (1) It must be capable of lifting the iPad up to eye level (2) It must be able to be closed up into a...

    stabile ipad stand

    Robert, I'm not sure if its allowed for me to answer your questions directly. It was suggested that I PM you so I will do that. Thanks for asking about it.

    I have two iPads and I'm pretty sure neither of them had any printed documentation in the box. If they did, it was probably nothing more than how to turn it on and charge it. There is a help document on the iPad (that is, I think its local) that shows up in the favorites for the Safari browser...

    Run Windows 7 and Microsoft Office on your iPad with Citrix Receiver

    Anybody know if those medical apps were Windows, Mac, or iPad programs? Looked really impressive.

    stabile ipad stand

    Take a look at my company's product, the Articulating eazel. It lets you position your iPad anywhere in 3D space with the screen angled for optimum viewing. And yes, it is very stable.

    slight scratches on the screen of my iPad?!?! ack!

    I would be very careful about using any cleaning compounds or substances. In the process of helping to fill in or polish scratches, you'll likely damage the oil-resistant covering on the glass.

    Has the iPhone 4 Stolen the iPad’s Thunder?

    I'm with seadog. The iPhone screen is, and always will be, too small for me to do any serious work with.

    What is the best thing you can do on your iPad?

    I'd say my favorite thing is catching up on my morning email and CNN videos while still lying in bed. Then I close it up and carry it with me all day.

    An iPad campus

    Don't know what tablet will become the standard, but I think we can count on tablet-based-textbooks as being inevitable. The iPad is clearly number 1 right now.

    I found the PERFECT travel case for my iPad!

    Lol. "Action bag". I like that!

    What Colors Do People Want?

    Thanks for all the votes. Black appears to be the more popular color. We're currently in development of an articulating stand/carrying case called the eazel. We'll be offering them in both glossy white and glossy black. Here's what it looks like in white:

    What Colors Do People Want?

    This will be good info for manufacturers in giving you what you want. Don't look at the poll results until you've voted.

    using headphones

    Right. If the plug isn't going all the way in, you're using the wrong-sized plug. Also, make sure it has two black circles on it (stereo).

    How to get photos onto iPad without iTunes or Camera Kit

    Like bleighty said, Dropbox works really well. You could also take the low-tech approach and simply email them to yourself.

    What Colors Do People Want?

    Ok, you have your iPad case and it is working just fine. You carry it with you most everywhere you go. So what color of that case would you be most happy with if you had to choose either black or white?

    I don't think it should have taken that long for one TV episode. You can download an entire movie from iTunes in less than that. First guess is that your wifi connection is slow for some reason. Did you notice any other internet activities being really slow? Try the same download on a different...

    Reading in bed - Needing a Stand

    The trick about watching movies on your iPad in bed is that you need something that raises the iPad up into your natural field of view and lets you angle the screen so that it is perpendicular to your line of sight. You can always take a desktop stand and lie on your side to watch, but this...

    Google Earth Out Now for iPad

    I have been having a lot of fun with Google Earth on my iPad. I am not real crazy about the physical tilting. I liked the onscreen control better. But it is still a great toy.

    Opening PDF Packages ?

    Yep. Goodreader is a good app. It even helps you link to sites to download the pdfs. It is well worth the price which I think is currently 2 or 3 bucks.

    Do you think website developers will tailor sites to iPad?

    A lot of websites are already formatting themselves for iPhone and iPad viewing. Apple talks about the issues and gives a list of some of its favorites in their "webapp" page. Oh, I need more posts before I can give the link. Just put a slash webapps on the end of the apple main URL.
