    REVIEW: My First Impressions of the iPad

    Yeah, I meant the fact that I had to Jailbreak it. There is so much more that you can do with the iPad when it is Jailbroken, it is a shame that most users don't realize that... and no I don't mean they can steal apps, as I pay for my apps. I have seen no decrease in battery life when I...

    Seeking Feedback: Incase Convertible Book Jacket

    First of all, it's imitation leather and I imagine it isn't incredibly durable... I better scratching it with a fingernail too hard would rip the "leather," or at least show a visible. It's kind of sad that a $60 dollar case isn't real leather. My ports are lined up perfectly with the cuts, you...

    With Air Video and Pandora I don't have a need for all of the extra space... 16GB is fine by me, and it leaves me money to buy more apps :-p

    Rent Movies - SD or HD?

    You can simply download an SD and HD (720p) trailer from any movie of your choice from Movie Trailers - iTunes and upload it to your iPad via iTunes. The 480p and 720p resolutions are what will be delivered to you when you rent.

    Apple Store 3G Reservation Policy

    WOOHOO! I just received the email. I originally reserved on 05/07 so it took 15 days, but really only 10 full business days. I bought the size with the most demand and registered at a very busy Apple store, so your mileage may vary.

    Rent Movies - SD or HD?

    720p videos are 1280x720 resolution. Standard definition videos are 720x480 resolution. The iPad's screen is 1024x768, so you won't watch an HD in it's full resolution unless you zoom in, and then the sides are cropped significantly. On the other hand you'll have to upscale the standard...

    CNN Video Piece - Apple Rejects Cash For iPad

    I completely understand the thinking behind the policy, but that still doesn't make it a good policy. All they had to do was require your iTunes account, name and address when you bought an iPad, or your state ID/Drivers License number. There are countless ways that they could have better...

    Apple Store 3G Reservation Policy

    I went to the Baybrook store (also in Houston) and gave them a sob story about leaving the country and needing it ASAP and they didn't budge. So good luck convincing them otherwise. I'd trying calling the Galleria store during non-peak hours and seeing if someone could look your name up, or go...

    CNN Video Piece - Apple Rejects Cash For iPad

    Apple's legal speak on their website says Apple Store Gift Cards cannot be used for other gift cards, iPhones or iPads (see here), although their "Apple Gift Card FAQ" makes no mention of that policy (see here). As I stated above, I am buying an iPad with a gift card and I will buy it with a...

    Apple Reverses No Cash For iPads Policy

    If they wouldn't have the ACLU would have had a fit seeing as the lady trying to by an iPad was an elderly black woman on a fixed income.

    I'm sure it's been asked before, but what are the cons of jailbreaking ipad?

    There aren't any, any anyone who tells you otherwise is lying. Some have said there is a virus threat to jailbroken iPhones, but if you get infected just restore it. It doesn't void your warranty to jailbreak because you can ALWAYS restore it to factory defaults through iTunes. The only way it...

    How can I make a reservation for an iPad at my local store?

    When you go in to the store they will have you sign up to the reservation list on the reserve.apple.com website. You'll sign in with iTunes, so if you don't have an account sign up before you head in store or you can sign up in the store. You can only complete the reservation in the actual...

    Apple Store 3G Reservation Policy

    If they are telling you they can't check your status at your store, they are lying to your face. It is integrated into the apple.com website and has nothing to do with the store other than their information is entered into the "location" in the database. When they check, they are simply going to...

    CNN Video Piece - Apple Rejects Cash For iPad

    Simple fix. Take the cash, buy an Apple gift card, hand the gift card back to the sales associate and say "I'll take an iPad, thanks." Then point and laugh at the sales associate. They cannot turn down their gift cards. This reminds me of a story about Subway, very similar lousy customer...

    Apple Store 3G Reservation Policy

    Yes, that is the case. Sadly, most in-store sales associates seem to be talking out of their asses and telling people that the wait is anywhere from 2-5 days when reserving with them. I have no doubt that if I would have ordered mine online on 05/07 it would be here by now, as the estimates on...

    I asked that very question to multiple sails associates and they said it would be too difficult to do. I guess we're you're expecting far too much from one of the companies that revolutionized the entire world over the past 30 years, lol.

    Downloading files on the iPad

    Steps to downloading files on an iPad. Place iPad on floor. Grab laptop. Stand on iPad while holding laptop. While browsing the web on the laptop, save files. You're now downloading files while on an iPad. Profit?

    Apple Store 3G Reservation Policy

    Getting a more expensive iPad does speed up your order somewhat. I talked to a sales associate (even though they hate being called that) extensively about it a few days ago. She said that people who order the 64GB tend to get them faster because there is less demand, and Apple is still shipping...

    Okay, did Apple sell me out?

    The mail app doesn't transfer any data anywhere. The addresses you enter in stay on your iPad and your iPad alone, just like with smart phones, notebooks and comptuters. If you are using an ISP email address that is your problem, as most of them don't offer great spam filters. All it takes is...
