    ....and????? How do you like it? Does it work?

    Viewing the book cover on iBooks?

    I update my book files that are missing cover art by adding the cover art as "art work" in iTunes. It shows up in iBooks, on the shelves, but not when you open the individual book. It's disappointing, as some books have very nice cover art.

    Viewing the book cover on iBooks?

    Yeah, if you make many changes to your library, ie adding cover pages to files that are missing them, updating the type, etc.... the resorting will take a long time.

    Viewing the book cover on iBooks?

    Of all the books I have read on my iPad not one of them has opened to a cover first. I didn't even think it was possible until your post.

    Viewing the book cover on iBooks?

    This is not an issue for every book but some books have never nice covers, pictures or artwork and all I see on iBooks is the small thumbnail. Why doesn't iBooks open the file to the cover first, then I can begin reading it? Is there a way to do this?

    Magazine suscriptions

    I use the Zinio app on the iPad and absolutely love it. Almost like having the full sized magazine in my hands. The same app on the iPhone I don't like at all, too small to be useful.

    Eye-Strain while using iBooks (iStrain?)

    I would never read a paper book under direct sunlight, neither would I use the iPad that way. For me, not a problem.

    Bluetooth earbuds for Ipad

    I have the Sennheiser MM200's and I am very happy with them. They work with my iPad and my iPhone, as they have a microphone on one side so I can make calls with them. They are stereo so they work great for music. I think they are about $105 on Amazon.

    I don't know why but my problems with iBooks seems to have gone away. I did turn off bluetooth, but my problems were better before that.

    Has the iPhone 4 Stolen the iPad’s Thunder?

    I think you answered your own question. They are two different products with some overlap, but neither replaces the other.

    Thanks! I was trying to figure that out for a while.

    Settings for Airport Utility / Airport Express

    Nope, $99 straight from Apple. AirPort Express Base Station with 802.11n and AirTunes - Apple Store (U.S.) or $95 from Amazon.

    If I remember correctly one file type shows up under Movies, the other under TV Shows.

    For anyone on the fence about the camera connection kit

    Me too, but the next time you are at a hotel and forgot your cable just ask at the front desk. They will probably be happy to give you that someone else left behind. Might save you a few bucks.

    Projector

    I want to send the projector the output of Keynote so I can project my training course materials without a laptop. If it works for video thats great too, but not required.

    iBook unstable with too many books loaded

    Yes, I downloaded the new version of Stanza for iPad and loaded all of my books into Calibre. Boy does it take along time to upload 4000 books to Calibre, but it is done now. The next step is to do the Wireless transfer from Calibre to Stanza mentioned above. I have not done that step yet, I was...

    I see you have joined the group that does not understand the question, the issue or the iPad. Thanks for nothing. Just another user to go on the ignore list.

    iBook unstable with too many books loaded

    Now that Stanza works on the iPad without being an iPhone only app it seems nice, but you have to add your epub books one by one. A bit tough to do with 4000 books. But I did like the better selection of fonts available.

    Bremen, My apologies if it sounded like I trashed you. I generally do not like iPod apps on the iPad, but I will give it a try based on your suggestion. Thank you,

    Math3w, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! I did not know that the ignore feature was available on this forum. I feel like a free man now, no more silly attacks on me for simple questions. Placing him on ignore makes this thread so much smoother looking. Two thumbs up for you!

    Barnes and Noble iPad app. now available

    I downlaoded this app, and although it does not do what I downloaded it for, it does seem to work in the other respects that you mention. Sometimes you get a corrupted download of an app. I have had this in the past, deleted the app from the device, deleted from iTunes and then redownloaded it...

    The answer is in an earlier post, you just need to read it. But you seemed to have missed it so I will say it again. Reason 1. Because I can. Reason 2, Why not. Reason 3, my iPad is used by my whole family and we have wide reading tastes. Reason 4, I usually am reading 3 to 4 different things...

    :lol Everything but something that backs up your assumption. You made the claim, a claim you clearly can't back up and now seem afraid to be shown for the fraud you are. :lol If I wanted to listen to such people I wouldn't be posting on an anonymous internet bulletin board. I would search...

    iBook unstable with too many books loaded

    You try to HELP? Sorry, making unsubstatiated claims about a new product is not help, it is called "assuming". The claims were not made as a theory, as in "I think you may have a problem with the database, too bad Apple didn't do better". The claims were "We know for a fact that the iPad is not...

    THANK YOU! Finally a reasonable response that does not make assumptions. I agree with everything you say. Are their limitations? Sure. Should I expect a car with a 20 gallon tank to only be able to use 3 gallons of fuel per trip, then I need to refill the tank with 3 different gallons? Of...

    Wow, quite the angry bunch we have here. The only ones getting upset are people like yourself. This is not a personal issue, this is a device issue. That is very clear and simple. Is it a bit racist to make claims about a persons behavior based solely on where they are located? I guess you...

    Do you have any link or documentation that the iPad was not designed as an "archive" device. Where do you make the split between an archive device and an eReader? 100 books? 200 books? 2000 books? This is what I am disputing on your posts. You post your comment as if you have some insider...

    iBook unstable with too many books loaded

    OK. So your original statement was in error. You don't actually "know: what the iPad was designed to do or not. You are simply making an assumption. One which I disagree with and you seemingly have no evidence to support. Regardless, the topic here is the instability of the iPad, not my use of...

    Because in my estimation the Kindle and the Sony are garbage. Interesting. Were you on the design team? Or are you just making excuses for the failure of Apple to plan for all user types?

    Barnes and Noble iPad app. now available

    Please look at the top of your screen and read the title of this thread. We are talking about the B&N reader, not iBooks. iBooks becomes unstable if you load too many books on it, so I was looking for another ereader app. B&N reader was announced and "SUPPORTS EPUB FORMAT" was assured. Nope...

    Thanks, the folder idea is great. Why can't we have folders for each category which we can then sort by author, name, series etc... That would be wonderful.

    iBook unstable with too many books loaded

    Why do I want all the books I have on my iPad? Because I can. Why do I keep all the t-shirts I own in my closet and not in a box in the garage? Because I have the space in my closet. I have the space on my iPad too. The same reason I have 8,000 songs (yes, all legally purchased between myself...

    Wired magazine's iPad edition - anyone else tried it?

    Personally I hope NO ONE buys an iPad formatted magazine at these ridiculous prices. Zinio is starting to get it, with some magazines as low as $5 a year. But there is NO WAY I will pay full price or MORE for a bunch of electrons that have already been sent to the printer for the paper version...

    iPhone OS falls to No. 3

    What's all the concern with being #1? I mean, fine, if you are number 1 you can brag about being big. But that does not mean you are the best, or the most fun to use, or the most respected by the marketplace. As an example, are any of the following car brands #1 in the market? - BMW -...

    i have a question for the military guys here

    Instead of sending him an iTunes gift card I would suggest you either log onto his iTunes account and enter the number on the back of the card, or email him the number so he can enter it himself. The other option is to set him up with an allowance on iTunes, he might be happy to know he always...
