    114,000 iPad Owners' Email Addresses Revealed Via AT&T Security Hole

    Not a dumb question at all. I don't know the answer for sure. But for what it's worth I personally think you are not at risk if you have not yet activated your 3G service with AT&T yet. When I activated my 3G service I had to create an account and provide my email address, mailing address...

    Apps for people in IT

    TeamViewer is great. I use it on my iMac, Windows laptops, and my iPhone. I believe the TeamViewer agreement says it is free under the condition you only use it for personal needs. You are NOT to use it for commercial purposes unless you purchase it. So it's all on the honor system I...

    Bluetooth Keyboard Question

    WiFi is what your iPad needs to connect to the Internet. Bluetooth is what the iPad needs to connect to the keyboard. WiFi and Bluetooth are independent of each other.

    Real Time Strategy Games

    Has anyone played Galcon Fusion on the iPad? I don't have my iPad yet so I can't offer a review. It's almost like a game I played on my buddy's Apple IIe almost 25 years ago called "Galactic Empires". Although that game was turn-based and not real-time. We would build up huge fleets over the...

    Did anybody 'Reserve' their iPad In-Store?

    I reserved mine in-store on Friday 5/21. I also ordered it online last night. The online order is due to ship 6/8 and arrive 6/11. Whichever one is ready first wins and I'll cancel the other.

    pinging my ipad - i think there's a problem?

    More info for your reference. Here's a ping test from my iMac to my wireless router. The iMac is on 802.11n (Wireless-N) in this scenario. The round trip times vary from just a hair less than 1ms to over 12ms and everywhere in between. Last login: Sat May 15 17:24:10 on ttys000 iMac:~...

    pinging my ipad - i think there's a problem?

    Was your Windows machine on wireless also during your ping test? You also need to send a few dozen pings to the router itself so you have something to compare.

    iPad to be Used as Inflight Entertainment System

    I think virtually all pilots find knee boards necessary, or at least useful. I never became a pilot but I used a kneeboard when I was taking flying lessons. There's a ton of information pilots have to process and keep track of, and the information constantly changes. And don't get me started...

    Typing test

    I agree. I plan to use the wireless Apple keyboard if I want to type quickly, or type a lot. With the virtual keyboard the hardest thing for me to get over is to *not* rest my fingers on the home row. The virtual keyboard is close to the size of the real thing so I find myself reverting to...

    Are there 3Gs available in Apple stores this morning?

    I just walked in to my local Apple Store and Best Buy, both were completely sold out of the 3G models. They both had some WiFi models left though. But the excitement is still very fresh. The Apple store was packed and all 20 or so demo iPad units had people trying them out.

    iPad 3G Support Group Thread

    3G download speeds are also variable. It depends on the quality of the signal reception and how many other 3G users in your area are actively using 3G connections. You might experience different results if you try it at other times, or in other cities, or even just from the other side of the...

    Received Camera Connection Kit - Short Video Demo Inside.

    Same deal with iPhoto on a Mac. You cannot view photos in full screen until you import them from the camera to iPhoto. I'm not sure why that is, but they must be closely related. The iPad built-in photo app was designed to be like iPhoto (hence the places, faces, etc. features) I'd love...

    Apple wireless keyboard

    Thanks everyone for your responses! I also have the same question as gentlefury. I use the wireless keyboard with my iMac and I was wondering how easy it would be to use the same keyboard, moving it back and forth between the Mac and iPad. It would be nice to save $69.

    Thanks for the reports you guys. That is actually really helping me reinforce my decision to get one of these babies. I have been having trouble justifying the expense due to some financial issues of my own so every little bit of justification helps. :D
