    How to sync Ipad with another Mac

    The iPad will behave the same whether it's jailbroken or not. When you connect the iPad to another computer, it will ask if you want to use the new computer to sync with.

    ipod/pad sync cable

    Yup, like 1991-C4 said, iPod, iPad and iPhone cables are the same. The thing to note is that your iPad will charge faster when plugged into the power adapter. iPad will charge when connected to a computer (most computers, anyway), but very slowly - even though it says that its not charging.

    For Mail, you can choose Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large or Giant for font size, in the "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" settings.

    Yup, Mike's right. But try this. A lot of times, the YouTube app is slow. Try viewing the same video on the YouTube website using Safari. For me, a lot of times YouTube is faster via Safari.

    Earlier this year They announced they that Citrix was going to offer a product that would let you run Windows 7 via virtualization. It hasn't shipped yet. Using iTeleport (a VNC iPad app) you can control and view a Windows 7 desktop. It's kind of like running Windows 7 on an iPad. :)
