    How to Clean my Screen!

    I use a cheap-o screen protector, which collects fingerprints worse than the bare screen. I don't mind trying different cleaners, because it could only damage the screen protector. I have had good results using Method brand stainless steel cleaner. It is more like rain-x or spray-on car wax...

    question regarding apple wireless keyboard

    Thanks for the tip... it looks like any key wakes up the iPad -- without having to swipe the screen! Nice! Yeah, a guide would be nice... and hopefully Apple is going to continue to make improvements to the interface. For instance, when you start to type in a URL in Safari and it comes up...

    question regarding apple wireless keyboard

    I know this is a little late.. but I just bought the Apple wireless keyboard. It woks great. The brightness keys work, as do the volume and mute keys. The "eject" looking key in the upper right corner makes the on-screen keyboard appear. Caps lock works. The arrow keys work in some places...

    i have a problem with people who tell you that the ipad is not a computer

    Okay... Apparently sarcasm doesn't go over well on this forum. I was making fun of "computers", not iPads. Please re-read my post... I think you'll see where I was going with that. I love my iPad. It does just about everything I need a computer to do... Better than a computer...

    Remote Access App's!!

    I just started using LogMeIn and I'm very happy with it. I have not used any others, though. I keep thinking of new ways to use it. I have been using it a lot at work to start print jobs while I am away from my desk. Actually, I am usually away from my desk, so it really is helpful. I was...

    i have a problem with people who tell you that the ipad is not a computer

    The iPad is NOT a computer. Computers take a long time to boot up. Computers need to be plugged in, or at least recharged every 3-4 hours. Computers need lots of settings to be played around with before you can connect to a different wifi network. Computers need a $60-$80 monthly payment to...

    I Hate When My iPad....

    I hate when my iPad... ... Types an "n" instead of a space. I know it is me hitting it... But I have never had problems with any real keyboard. There's just something about it that makes my right hand hit the n instead of the space bar.

    Nice 3G speed... Middle of nowhere!

    Oh, yeah... Of course i meant megabits, not gigabytes. In my area, which is not in a city, I usually get lower speeds... Usually under 1m, but I just ran a test and got almost 1.4m. I have full bars on ATT. Thats about the same as Verizon mobile broadband here, which is what I used to have on...

    Nice 3G speed... Middle of nowhere!

    So, my wife and I went out to some yard sales this morning. I had determined that there was nothing of interest to me at one particular yard sale, so i headed back to the car with our baby. I was playing around on the iPad, and the 3G seemed particularly speedy. I had to check to see if I had...

    Change in ATT Data plans

    I just looked at AT&Ts website, and they haven't updated pricing information either. Still says unlimited.

    Change in ATT Data plans

    I could be wrong... And I'm sure someone will point it out. But i don't remember seeing and apple ad that talked about unlimited Internet. Insaw media outlets talking about it... And I say links to ATT talking about it. The only place I ever saw apple talking about it is on their website when...

    Change in ATT Data plans

    I just don't see it as all that big of a deal. Most people are going to save $5. It looks to me like the vast majority of pas 3G users arr WELL below 2gb per month. Mine was less than 1Gb, but not by much. A prepaid myfi will run you $50 for 1gb. I have a feeling that a lot of the people...

    AT&T Unlimited 3G ipad plan is history!

    I'm torn... in the first month of usage, I didn't even rack up 900 megs on 3G. I use my iPad mostly at home and at work, where I have wifi. Mostly, the 3G is used in my car, and I am obviously not streaming videos while I'm driving. However, I often use the map program as I am driving... even...

    will 32 gb be enough for me?

    I've got a 32gig 3G. I have three full length movies on it, a bunch of apps, a few GB of movies, and a couple of albums plus some podcasts. I am still less than 16gigs at this point. I thought i was going to be batch converting my photos down to a lower resolution for the iPad, but I find...

    iPad Converter - Handbrake

    So, I used the DVD43, DVD Decrypter, Handbrake combo to put Kung Fu Hustle on my iPad and it worked great! Totally free! I had to Handbrake it again because I forgot to encode the English subtitles into it... My bad. I'm working on another movie now. I used the Apple TV setting and it looks...

    iPad Converter - Handbrake

    Thanks for posting this info. I am in the process of decrypting a DVD with DVD43 and DVD Decrypter. As long as this works out, I'll follow up with Handbrake, and should soon have Kung Fu Hustle on my iPad!

    A question about Ipad, PC, and Itunes

    I had all kinds of problems with my old computer when i tried to run iTunes from an external hard drive. However, if yours works with your iPod, then it should work the same with your iPad. As far as putting movies on your iPad, you can certainly do this. Obviously, anything you download from...

    upload pictures tonfacebook

    Lol... I do the same thing! Yeah, post #2 is correct. Facebook gives youna special email address to send pics to. The subject line becomes the description of the photo. On my iPad, i made an address book entry called Facebook Photos with the correct email address. That makes it super-easy...

    Wifi Performance

    Imhave no problems with wifi at all on my iPad. I have a Cisco router at home, a linksys at work, and I think my parents have a linksys, too. All of the work flawlessly. We don't have any security on at home, but it is on at work. I only entered the security info once, now it connects at...

    Just got my HHI leatherette flip case.

    Stever, I appreciate your effort. At least someone took the time to try typing the URL and had the same thing happen to them. Is HHI affiliated with this site? Maybe that's why there is an automatic link created. I don't know. I certainly don't want to go around assuming things that I know...

    Dude... I'm justva guy who owns an iPad and bought a case from HHI after reading good reviews and finding a coupon code. I would hope that others would share that kind of info here, too. Yeah, imwas impressed at how inexpensive it was... I am happymwith the quality - other than, as I...

    Just got my HHI leatherette flip case.

    Soundlogic...that is very sound logic. I guess I should have learned by now not to judge a forum by one bad apple member. Oh, well... Time to "kick stand" my iPad, load up netflix, and get back to "work".

    Infinity, be careful posting good reviews here... They'll call it a "fluff piece" and accuse you of posting SPAM. This is the last time I write a review on this forum.

    Just got my HHI leatherette flip case.

    I don't know how much of indifference it will really make, but if the light sensor thinks it is dark, the brightness will benturned down. I went tom the settings and manually set the brightness for now. I don't ink it is a big deal... But others might disagree. I'm loving the case... My...

    Just got my HHI leatherette flip case.

    Sorry if I am not allowed to post the website where I bought my iPad cover. I do not work for them or have any affiliation with them, other than the fact that I just bought an iPad cover from them. I typed in their URL... Not then long description that is in my first post... That came up...

    Just got my HHI leatherette flip case.

    I haven't seen it mentioned here, but heard about it on another forum. Handhelditems has a leatherette flip case with kickstand for $22.99, but there is a coupon code that knocks $10 off of that! By the way, it comes with a screen protector, and shipping was less than $3. It showed up at my...

    iPad WIFI & iPad WIFI+3G

    The SIM card I'd only for the 3G service (like a cell phone), so there is no reason that a wifi model would have a sim slot. Basically, if you want to be able to use the Internet or GPS away from home or another wifi hotspot, then go for the 3G model. You have to pay weekly or monthly for 3G...

    Creating new photo folders/moving pics

    You might as well say the same thing about the iPod or a digital camera... If it can't do everything computer can do, it is useless! You do realize that an iPad (like a digital camera or an MP3 player) is not meant to replace a computer, right?

    Creating new photo folders/moving pics

    No... But you could do it after syncing, I suppose. Would be nice if it could ne done on the pad.
  34. M

    Creating new photo folders/moving pics

    I haven't found a way to do that within the iPad itself. I set up a sync folder for itunes and put a copy of each pic I want in the iPad in that folder. Whatever folder you create in there will be mirrored on the iPad.

    Apple Component AV Cable and The Netflix app

    You'll probably get a better picture out of something with HD quality, anyway. I know Netflix isn't really HD, but I have Netflix through my iPad, wii, and PS3... and the PS3 by far has the best picture quality.

    Comcast Wows the 2010 Cable Show with Xfinity Remote for iPad

    I can't wait until this comes out. I have been wanting remote DVR control for a long time... and an iPad app makes it even better! Comcast's guide and menu system is pretty rough... after years of having DirecTV and TiVo I got used to a system that worked really smoothly. If this works as...

    3G Data Usage Heads Up...

    It adds up pretty quickly. However, I use 3G pretty frequently. When I'm at home or at work, I turn off cellular data (3G) to increase battery life... but during my morning and evening commutes, I like to stream audio over 3G. I listen to Pandora radio, NPR, BBC, etc. In about a week, I have...

    Why 4:3? Why not wide-screen?

    Also, the taller the display, the more data you see. 4:3 screens are taller and therefore show more information than a 16:9 screen of the same width. The logic works either way. The only thing you can say for sure is that the screen would be larger if it were larger.

    Why 4:3? Why not wide-screen?

    No. 35mm cameras take a 4:6 image... but movies are shot sideways on the film and are approximately 16:9. There is nothing inherent about the film itself that decides what the aspect ratio is. That is all up to the camera.

    Why 4:3? Why not wide-screen?

    Again... The reason most notebooks and netbooks are wide screen is that theybwant the screen to be SHORTER in order to make the overall size smaller. Think about it... When a notebook is closed, the screen covers the keyboard. A keyboard has to be a certain shape because we are allmused to a...
