    Getting started questions data storage

    I'm just getting started with this and had bought a pile of books and so on. When 4.2 was announced, I just put everything aside and decided to wait for that. Well, now it's here and I'm starting back in. The biggest problem I have is that there are so many ways to do things - it's hard as...

    Shouldn't these forums be more iPad friendly

    Double tap doesn't do the same as out pinching. If I out pinch, yes, the text is too wide, if I double tap, it isn't - at least here and every other place I remember doing it. However - if you are looking at a narrow part of the page (such as typing in the quick reply box here) and double...

    Does it seem odd to you that there is no iPad iTunes?

    No, I meant it should all be one "buy stuff" app :-) But yeah, until I reorganized, they were all there quite close to each other. Folders will be nice. So will multitasking, though that only cones up rarely.

    Does it seem odd to you that there is no iPad iTunes?

    Ayup :-) And thanks for reminding me about search, 4phun. I don't have all that many screens yet but I am getting there. It was my reorganizing the screens that caused me to tuck iTunes off somewhere I never go.. Duh!

    Does it seem odd to you that there is no iPad iTunes?

    Found it. Sheesh :-) Too much stuff in my home screen. Really that and iBooks and App Store should all be in one place.

    I don't see it. What is it near?

    Does it seem odd to you that there is no iPad iTunes?

    Ok, the only way I see is to click on something that you have nothing in.. Then you see the "you can download music from iTunes" Is there another way to get there??

    Does it seem odd to you that there is no iPad iTunes?

    Wait, I see that I am! Boy that was NOt obvious how to get there ! You can get to iTunes from the iPod app - it isn't obvious, but you can get there..

    Does it seem odd to you that there is no iPad iTunes?

    Given that we can buy apps and books directly from our iPads, it seems odd to me that I have to go back to my Mac to get music and podcasts. Am I missing something obvious?

    iBooks for iPad

    On your iPad, go into iBooks Store. Type "free" in the search box. Same thing with the Kindle app. Mostly classics and crappy romance novels, a few teaser excerpts..

    I wish Steve Jobs could read this

    Ok, I get it now: you are all ticked off because you think my idea would cost screen real estate. It wouldn't. You have two .?123 keys now; if one of them called up a third keyboard that was programmable, you'd lose no space. Using one of the keys that way could even be an option in...

    iBooks for iPad

    iBooks itself has about 30,000 free books (mostly classics) and so does Amazon through the Kindle app. I think the iBook ones are better.

    iPad vs HP Slate

    I see the HP NotPad as a lousy Netbook for. Small screen, not so great battery life (you will need to always have a charger with you), and if they just port over apps without rewriting fir the device, lousy apps. The Android version will be better than the Windows, but fragmenting the market...

    I wish Steve Jobs could read this

    Blaming? Who is blaming? Look, I understand that there area bunch of morons out there jumping all over the iPad and maybe that makes people overly sensitive. But suggesting a way in which something could be made better isn't "blaming" anyone for anything. Was OS X a great OS when they had...

    OK,, I take it back...

    I am so happy to read this. This would have been wonderful for my mother, who died in a nursing home a few years back. I'm sure many other disadvantaged people will find this a liberating experience.

    I wish Steve Jobs could read this

    Believe me, I love it. It *is* magical. And Apple is great at designung interfaces that work very, very well. But that doesn't mean that they get everything right the first time. I (and I am sure many other iPad owners) work a lot with text and also use ssh, rep, vnc and Webex frequently -...

    do you keep your ipad with you at all time now

    The only places I didn't take it was the gym and to my weekly poker game. Other than, it's been with me 24/7.

    I wish Steve Jobs could read this

    (I posted this at my website today) Nobody from Apple reads my web site - I can't say that with absolute certainty, but I don't see any apple.com in my logs - though somebody could be reading by RSS. If I could be granted one magic wish for today, it would be for Steve Jobs to read this...

    VGA adapter - did I miss something?

    Yeah, that could be better done. But that's generally true - I think almost every iPad app could be improved and will be over time. This whole think is so new and different,; the best ways to do things either havee yet to be imagined or are just impossible under the current API. This will...

    VGA adapter - did I miss something?

    I had another "Duh!" moment yesterday. I had done enough work and downloaded enough apps to want to sync back to my MBP. I had not done that since originally setting it up. So where was the cable? It had to be right there on my desk, but no.. I cursed myself for a fool. Had I put it...

    VGA adapter - did I miss something?

    I just got my iPad Friday. One of the first things I tried was Keynote because I hope to use that for an upcoming presentation. After creating a few slides, I wanted to see how it would work on a monitor. So I hooked up the via adaptor and got - nothing. Nothing on the monitor at all...
