    Jailbreaking void warranty? Even with restore?

    I have been jailbreaking my idevices for several years now. All of which were second hand and out of warranty(also not $600), so I didn't care But, my iPad has been having overheating issues. I have already been to apple and they told me if it happens any more they will replace it...

    iPad Concealed Carry

    Yeah, I saw that one. But in that one, the iPad slides into it like traditional laptop case. With mine, you can use it it while inside the book so it looks like you are reading the textbook. Plus, it is a real book. Not plastic like the one out there already

    iPad Concealed Carry

    Dont steal my idea and make millions.... I have a bunch of old outdated textbooks. So I am milling out a pocket inside the book, then putting foam and felt inside it. I am calling it the "incognito" case. I am going to try and sell them on my local college campus and see what kind of response I...

    do you keep your ipad with you at all time now

    I try to bring mine everywhere i go as well. But I get the "oh, your one of those apple freaks" everywhere I go in public. He'll, I get it from my girlfriend too. Everyone thinks we bought this because it is the next cool thing from apple. Rather than the ipads enormous functionality and...

    You can. In the settings, I believe you go under the cellular data tab and there is a button to turn off the cellular part.

    Overheating?

    Interesting. I took your advice and called apple right away to let them the conditions in which my 3G overheated. The guy freaked out and insisted I go immediately to the apple store to have it looked at. Which is cool and all, but I really don't want a new one and I don't really have any...

    iPad GPS

    The 3G iPad has GPS. If you look at the specs, it shows assisted GPS or A-GPS. Which means a regular GPS chip but with assistance from the cell network in finding the satellites when you first turn the GPS on. Just as accurate as your garmen or tom-tom but with a faster startup time.

    Little black button on the top right corner when in portrait mode. Press it and it goes to sleep. Hold it for a few seconds and a prompt comes up to turn off hard core.

    how much money have you spent on the Ipad so far

    bought the case. I dont buy apps often. I only use the free ones unless I absolutly need the paid apps. I do see myself buying navigon and pages though...which will put me in the 100 dollar range

    I agree. totaly uncalled for. Macmaniac - people like you are the reason people hate apple fans. there is no need for pretentious remarks among family and about the screen...it is still glass and regardless of how high-tech it is, glass will still scratch. so as long as you treat it as such...

    That's a good point Greg. fortunately, for me, I have dry calused hands...so fingerprints are less a problem for me. but for dana, that is a consideration I did not address which may be relevant to you. on a side note, I noticed invisible shields actually absorb oils. I had one on my macbook...

    all the app adds you are referring to are there to occupy the 3G crowd until we can get out hands on the device they are being posted because at the time of posting, they had been decreased in price or were temporarily free. in no way is it SPAM

    My convo with an Apple Expert re:3g Pre Orders /ship dates

    quite bitching Corey. you ordered yours on Monday. Many of us order ours 39 days ago. your act of pre-order is saving your place in the queue of the next batch of ipads. for all you know, yours could be number 1 in the next bacth. it makes perfect sense. but still, you have no room to bitch

    That's exactly my point. many of us ordered on march 12th. that's roughly 38 days ago. A large corporation should have no problems comfortably meeting a deadline with that kind of leeway. rather than rushing them all in at the last moment. It just shows how they are delegating resources. which...
