    Recommendations for someone elderly

    Most elderly have some sight degradation and have trouble reading small print. Although much larger that the iPhone/IpodTouch, the iPad still has small print. I say try them and see if they are comfortable with it and can read the small print.

    Why are people complaining about flash support?

    Without flash, the iPad is useless for internet browsing. I don't even attempt to use it for that. It is an entertainment toy for me. It's great for playing videos, movies and music. Playing games is even limited. The only type of games it will play is those controlled by touch. Even with all...

    iPad replacing school books?

    "In Knoxville [Tennessee}, the Webb school is making an iPad mandatory. Students from the fourth grade onward will be expected to have an iPad for school work. If the expense of the iPad is prohibitive, the school offers a leasing plan." I think that to replace school books in K-12 students...

    Ipad has serious wifi problems

    When I configured my E3000 I gave different SSID names to the 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz. That way it is easy to tell the iPad which one to connect to. Having the same name for both frequencies can sometimes cause problems.

    Ipad has serious wifi problems

    I'll second the Cisco E3000. I have one and my iPad connected to it out of the box and has never failed to give max lines and top speeds. I can even go next door and it still is connected. It also connects flawlessly at McDonalds and Starbucks as well as many hotels and airports around the country.

    MobileMe is Awesome! Recovered stolen iPad

    These features (lock and wipe) would not work if the thief was familiar with the device. He would simply disable mobileme in settings. To make find my iPhone useful, Apple should require the password be entered to disable mobileme.

    Upside down

    I just downloaded 3D Pool Master Pro, it shows up in the landscape mode upside down. It won't rotate to correct itself. This is the first time this has happened. I could just turn the iPad over but my case is set up with the volume buttons on top. Is there anyway to make it rotate?

    Ok now this is getting ridiculous..Ipad Video

    If your videos show up without thumbnail pictures and/or labels; it is because no thumbnail or titles have been entered in the files tag. You need to get a program like mp3Tag V2 to enter titles and thumbnails before you import the video to the iTunes. Also make sure the correct genre is enter...

    MobileMe is Awesome! Recovered stolen iPad

    I wonder who configured MobileMe on her iPad. If she had configured it, she should have known about it and how to lock it and find it. Mine did NOT come configured.

    iPad charger verses iPhone charger

    The iPad will charge fine on a 1 amp charger or 1 amp USB port when it is turned off. It will charge a lot slower than if the 2 amp charger were used. The iPad appears to draw over 1 amp when it is turned on so it will not charge on a 1 amp charger when turned on. It will however, discharge at...

    iPad vs. MacBook air

    I usually respect CNET's opinions, but this time they are full of owl dung. The MBA will do everything the iPad can do AND a WHOLE LOT MORE. If I had it to do over, I would get the MBA. The iPad is just a larger iPod Touch, the MacBook Air is a REAL computer. It has a larger screen than the...

    Does your iPad gets heavier over time?

    Mine felt surprisingly heavy right out of the box. I then realized that hand holding it would not be possible for me. Maybe you macho guys can do it but for me a few minutes holding it in one hand is fatiguing.

    simple question what did you buy your ipad for

    I bought it for entertainment while on trips. I can watch my own movies, listen to my music and play games. Since getting it, it has proved useful for a few other things but I still always carry my lap top.

    Will you buy the iPad 2?

    No way, if I replace my iPad anytime in the near future it will be with a MacBook Air. Bigger screen, faster processor, more memory, almost the same weight, and a whole more functionality.

    The real reason ipad does not have flash?

    I agree 100%. Apple should change its name to Propitiatory. If they can't control it, they don't include it. To me, the iPad is useless for browsing the web without flash. I never use it for that.

    What is Ipad 4.2 real battery life

    It wasn't an official post, it was from a user. It did seem to help me, I say "seem" because I haven't timed the battery drain. Other users there also stated that shutting down apps that remain active would also lower battery drain. I hate the way that apps remain open until you shut them down...

    What is Ipad 4.2 real battery life

    After 4.2 update, my battery seemed to drain much faster. I read on the Apple forum that turning off "Find My iPad" in MobileMe would extend battery life. I turned it off and battery drain seems to be back to pre 4.2 days.

    Would iPad replace my Kindle?

    No way an iPad would replace a Kindle. The Kindle weighs 8.5 ounces, the iPad weighs over 1.5 pounds. The Kindle can be read in direct sunlight, the iPad can't. For reading books, I use a Kindle. For watching movies or playing audio books, I use the iPad.
