    Charging my ipad with my pc

    I connected my Ipad to my work PC yesterday. Got the 'not charging' message, however when I connected my ipad was at 28%, when I disconected it was on 85%. The Ipad had been conencted for the better part of a workday. SO it appears that it will charge, just very slowly.

    Wife strikes........

    Kids will only damage an Ipad if they are not taught to handle their belongings with care. My kids have always had free access to what other's might call fragile items with no disasters. My 5 year old grand daughter likewise handles her belonings with care. I have no hesitation in allowing...

    Weird request

    Mike, I never let the device leave my hands. It is more about curiosity so far because the Ipad is not yet avaialble in Australia (only pre-order at the moment) people tend to becoem a little excitable when they see one in the wild. I suspect that it may become a little more unsafe to use in...

    iPad vs Archos 9

    Exactly, gentlefury, the Archos requires a great deal of work to even begin to be useable. I would not be spending any furhter money trying to make it do what I want. The Ipad simply works out of the box. Takenover, if you decide to buy one, I would be keen to hear of your experience.

    iPad vs Archos 9

    As someone who has an Archos 9 as wel as an Ipad (32gig Wifi) there is absolutley no comparison between the two devices. I purchased the Archos 9 prior to release having looked carefully at the specs and knowing that the included version of windows 7 was inadequate for what I needed. However...

    Wifi Performance

    I have no issues at all with the routter in my home, however when using my mobile wifi modem, the connection drops out if unused for a period of time. I figure this is due to the wirless modem needing to manage battery life and shutting of. Also used it at a freind's home with no issues over a...

    Why 4:3? Why not wide-screen?

    I also voted no. I have the archos 9 which is wide screen and the dimensions are very awkward for anything other than video (even that is not very good).

    Any hope of a 3g adapter.

    That's what I am using and it works very well. My only gripe about it is the battery life which seems to be around 4 or 5 hours.

    Mine is with me all the time, I catch then train to work and this is a little over an hours journey, so the Ipad provides an easy to use device to work on. Sometimes typing work documents, other times surfing the net or simply reading. Funiest experience occurred last week when a young bloke...

    I am weak willed, just pressed the buy now button on a 32g Wifi model on e-bay. How could I resist, it is in Sydeny and I can have it in my aching hands by the end of this week as opposed to not knowing when I might get the 3g model. I figure my hubby will be smitten by the device and willw...

    iPad ushers in a new age, for all ages.

    Computers have long held a lot of potential for learning aids for children, however the Ipad just takes the concept so much further. My 5 year old granddaughter already accesses a lot of apps on her ipod touch and I look forward to seeing her reaction to my Ipad when it arrives, hopefully later...
