    got mugged..

    I wish apple would track the devices serial #, seeing how the ipad is useless without downloading apps on it, and the serial # stays the same even if you wipe the device.. but they won't do it. my advice to everyone is this: keep your 3g antenna on, even if you're not using it. i think it...

    got mugged..

    thanks for the information everyone. based on their character, i highly doubt that the muggers have any knowledge or equipment to restore it. i'm guessing the ipad will either be sold, or tossed. i sent a lock request through mobileme, so if the device is ever connected to the internet...

    got mugged..

    ouch.. i seriously hope that's not the case. i suppose i could remove the passcode through mobileme but i'm not sure if that's a smart move. is it possible for them to wipe my ipad without my passcode? and if they did, i'm assuming mobileme won't track my ipad anymore even when connected to...

    got mugged..

    okay will do. can anyone tell me if the tracking will still work with the conditions described in my first post? i just don't want to waste my time keeping my eyes glued on mobileme if there's no chance of getting results.

    got mugged..

    i'm wondering if i can still track my 3g ipad when the 3g is turned off? wifi is still turned on. currently it's not showing the location on mobileme because i'm assuming the robbers turned the device off, but eventually they might turn it back on. if the tracking still does work with 3g...

    FM Transmitter for iPad?

    well i just got my bluetooth receiver and it works pretty damn well. there is no noticeable degradation of sound quality (to my untrained ears, at least), and the latency is very small. the audio on videos are pretty much in sync. i realize this has little to do with the original question...

    FM Transmitter for iPad?

    Did you look at the blubridge made by miccus? It's compact and runs on its built in rechargable battery so it looks ideal for cars. Unless you're looking for a permenant solution.

    Fruit Ninja HD Trailer - Video

    They should have a multiplayer mode where one person cuts the fruit and the other person tossing them.

    FM Transmitter for iPad?

    This might be a little off topic but i ordered this so i can connect wirelessly to my home speakers: Amazon.com: Bluelink Bluetooth Music Receiver: Electronics I hope it works out well.

    Free apps and trashy ratings

    I don't think anyone does it without reason. The app should be getting bad ratings if people don't like it. It helps us determine whether if its worth our time checking it our or not and the developers will know they need to make improvements. It will be nice if everyone bothered to leave a...

    iPad Stylus used for writing???

    Pogo Sketch or the Dagi stylus are probably the best two options right now. both are quite different so you should do some research on them. i got the dagi for drawing on the ipad but for me it doesn't really compare to drawing with pen and paper. maybe that will change with some practice..

    To 3g or not to 3g?

    One thing you should keep in mind about the mifi is that you will always have to carry another piece of electronics with you, which also means another thing you have to worry about charging occasionally. I'm not sure what the battery life on the mifi is but if it doesn't last as long as the...

    What's missing from the iPad

    That's interesting. I'm not experiencing any of that with my ipad though. I just turned off the wifi, turned the brightness all the way down, turned on the wifi and re-connected to my router which is on a different floor than i am. No connection issues for me. Could be an isolated issue?

    Question on Pogo Sketch

    According to what i've been hearing, yes, you need to apply some pressure in order to get the screen to recognize it. Having a screen protector could make it worse, but probably not by much.

    What's missing from the iPad

    The auto brightness adjust does work. It just doesn't kick in instantly if that's what people are expecting. Can you explain how the screen brightness affects the wifi? I'm curious.

    Another update (1.3.5) was just released minutes ago and it seems like it's working fine again! :)

    Angry Birds HD Gets A Major iPad Update

    After completing the first 20 or so levels it stopped working. It crashes and goes back to the home screen right when i open the app.

    Difference between non-anti glare screen protectors?

    The screen can get scratched, and clear films offer basic scratch protection while keeping the picture quality of the screen in tact unlike the anti-glare films. It will not make the screen look sharper like someone mentioned though. I don't get why this thread turned into a discussion about...

    Pics of iPad killer

    It's hard to take a product seriously when it clearly is just a copycat of what already exists. I mean, what kind of name is wiipad?? You just slapped together two big names.. You seriously couldn't do any better?

    Using a stylus with a screen protrctor

    Jauce, The screen looks excellent with the power support (not power supply:p) crystal film. Texts are crisp and i haven't had the need to increase the brightness of the screen to compensate for the lack of 'pop' that you apparently get with the anti-glare. You can't even tell there is a...

    Restricting access to mail app??

    Figmo: yeah i suppose that is a decent point. No one will bother going through and turning the account on unless they intend harm. I do trust that the people who have access to my ipad have no such intention.. I just wasn't comfortable with the idea that it Can be activated easily if they...

    Restricting access to mail app??

    HAHA. Matth3w: thanks for sharing your views. I'm a little surprised by the lack of response from anyone else but i guess it's not a big concern for many people.. I just hope that apple will add the option to lock this app in the near future for people like me.

    To 3(G) or not to 3(G)....

    This might not be the smartest way to look at it, but if you're able to afford the ipad and iphone, then what is $130 to you anyways? Honestly, it's not going to kill you. Just go for it and be done with it. It's a tiny price to pay in the long term. I have the 3g ver. and i enjoy using it...

    Restricting access to mail app??

    I do have the entire device locked, but that doesn't quite do the job since sometimes i let my friends, co-workers and family members use the ipad. It's funny because there is an option to lock the youtube, itunes (which is already password protected) and safari app. But the mail app is more...

    Using a stylus with a screen protrctor

    You should consider the Power Support anti-glare film instead of crystal if finger prints are bothering you.

    Using a stylus with a screen protrctor

    Power Support Crystal film and Dagi stylus combo is working fine in drawing apps for me.

    Restricting access to mail app??

    I'm not sure if you used the mail app but there is no option to not remember your password. Once you log in to your email account through the mail app, you are pemanently logged in until you go into settings and delete your account.

    Restricting access to mail app??

    There is a section in the general settings called 'restriction'. Take a look. It lets you restrict access to a few of the built-in apps, like safari and itunes with a passcode. I just don't get why the mail app isn't included in that list.

    Restricting access to mail app??

    Well yeah, pretty much. Plus the mail app is much more convenient than using the web browser and it also integrates with some apps so sometimes i kind of need to use it. Creating and deleting the account every time i use it is such a pain. Seriously, why don't we have the option to make this...

    Cleaning iPad screen

    I just use a drop of rubbing alcohol solution (goo gone) with a piece of tissue paper or microfiber cloth and all the smears come right off.

    Restricting access to mail app??

    I'm sure this has been brought up already but i can't find anything on it so i'm just gonna ask. Why is there no option to restrict the mail app out of all the other stuff you can restrict access to? It makes no sense at all! Is there a way to get around this? Or has this been addressed...

    Question: Hard Candy Bubble Case and Belkin Grip Vue!

    Yes, it fits perfectly. I was rocking the belkin + bubble case combo until a few days ago. You can remove the orange rubber pieces in the bubble case to fit an ipad equipped with a larger case as well.

    Difference between non-anti glare screen protectors?

    My wording might have been confusing. Sorry. Im just asking how the power sopport crystal would coompare to other clear/crystal type films made by other ( lower-end) makers. I know the difference between clear and anti-glare film, of course.

    Difference between non-anti glare screen protectors?

    So i read that there is a substantial difference in clarity and scratch resistance between anti-glare films made by different manufacturers, but how do the clear/crystal type films compare? Is power support still the best regardless of the type of screen protector or is there a smaller gap in...

    Youtube quality over 3G

    Is there any way to stream regular quality videos on youtube over the 3G connection instead of the godawful reduced quality videos? Im guessing this is to compensate for the slower connection, but im getting 2mb/s on my 3G connection, which is capable of loading higher quality videos without...
