    My review: biggest issue: book reading aps are not up to par.

    Gizmodo today (link): From Amazon: Kudos to Amazon. I'm going to buy a Kindle, now, definitely. EXACTLY what I was pointing at in my review. Your turn, Apple!

    iPad install on my 08' Sequoia

    Have you seen their console mounts? Maybe that will work for you. What I like about the proclip is that they are very sturdy over bumps, when touching the screen etc. Very well designed. And I think you can adapt their adapters to your needs, in my case, I could fit it into any flat spot on...

    iPad install on my 08' Sequoia

    Thank you! I bought it from Pro-Clip USA, http://www.proclipusa.com/; the model with the pass-through connector (so that I can use the AV cable and wire it for the rear passengers too), while also charging it. But the battery lasts very well, so even the cheap one may be enough for most. I...

    iPad install on my 08' Sequoia

    So finally I decided to use the pro-clip mounting solution to install my iPad in the Sequoia. I bought the expensive one with the pass-through cable to the dock connector, works like a charm. Very secure connection and very easy to slide the iPad in. Some pictures: 1. Dash without the iPad...

    IPad swing arm mount?

    I just cancelled my Ram Mount order with GPSCity. The wait is simply ridiculous. I ordered one in June, together with the iPad. We're almost in September now. Going to get a pro-clip mount I think, because you can dock the iPad and charge it/use line out etc. (they have a pass through...

    I ordered my ram mount in June, and I'm still waiting! They postponed it three times already.

    Do you regret jailbreaking your iPad?

    No.1 reason to jailbreak an iPad is to be able to use background. It's fast enough to handle most tasks in the background and it's a shame Apple didn't allow it from start. As soon as I get my 3G 64, I start Pandora, press and hold the home button and off I go browsing or playing with apps...

    Do you regret jailbreaking your iPad?

    Nope. J/b is a necessity for me. I would sell mine without it.

    I think you're both way way wrong (or are just terribly thin skinned), ignore them safely OP. :)

    Augen 7" Android Tablet, $149 at K-Mart: iPad killer?

    I like it a lot. I can see this in my headrest for the passengers to enjoy. Better than those Coby DVD players with 8 bit games? Cheaper for sure.

    Second Gen iPad this year

    Yeah, I don't believe it's going to happen that soon. What I really want to see on the next iPad would be a smaller size/lighter. Same screen, but no bezels, or much smaller.

    CNET’s 10 Reasons Why iOS 4 Will Rock on iPad

    Thanks, that makes sense. But I wouldn't be afraid of the graphic load on an app like Pandora, which practically just display album art and song info for updates. Any decent game on the App store is likely to have more graphic intensive rendering than most that would be useful in a split...

    Second Gen iPad this year

    I think the 7" would sell a lot for in car use. It easier to install it in a double din opening. I take it 7" is the device size, if it's the screen size plus large bezel, than the 5.6 would be better.

    CNET’s 10 Reasons Why iOS 4 Will Rock on iPad

    Can somebody explain to me how running two apps in onw screen is any different than running two, three or four in the background? I mean the video memory is constant, no matter how many apps you run. Suppose you open Pandora, put it on the background and then you launch some nav or traffic...

    CNET’s 10 Reasons Why iOS 4 Will Rock on iPad

    I think the split screen idea is doable, even with less memory (depending on the app, of course). For instance, Navigation and Trapster, or BeattheTraffic and iTunes, or iTunes and navigation could easily be used in a split screen interface (since iTunes is always running anyway). And the same...

    Just ordered a car mount from PadHoldr

    Yeah, I think they go to such lengths to avoid litigation. Blame the trial lawyers for that. In Germany, they can watch live TV on their nav screens. I did unlock my nav screen and I could do that, if I wanted to. Only I never do, usually my wife does when riding as a passenger just to keep...

    Just ordered a car mount from PadHoldr

    What i meant to say, or course, is that's easier to use the dock connector for charging and audio output. I usually don't say I plug the iPad into the dock, I just dock it. Oh yes, and there are wireless chargers for small devices for a long time already. Don't think it made anybody extremely...

    Just ordered a car mount from PadHoldr

    I wouldn't worry much about the legality. As you said, people do use the iPhone hanging on the windshield too, and iPhones are perfectly capable of playing movies, videos, cartoons, etc. Of course, if the cop is stupid, he can claim pretty much anything he wants. I'd like to see the iPad...

    Comcast Wows the 2010 Cable Show with Xfinity Remote for iPad

    It's very cool! There are two Comcast iPhone apps, but none let's you control your cable box with it (one if for mail, voice mail, tv listings etc. and the other is just tv listing). You can send people emails about a show, but that's all.

    iPad is Great, iTunes is not.

    I'm glad it works for you, but it's because it happens to fill your needs. It works with what? 5 or 6 file types? AAC, mp3, wav aiff, Apple lossless and mov? ACC is useless for me, since I refuse to use the iTunes store restricted and badly compressed files (last time I checked). So it's...

    iPad is Great, iTunes is not.

    I don't know when poor hard drives came into discussion. This is has nothing to do with how poorly written iTunes is, for reasons already mentioned. It's one of the worse media management programs available. Even Windows Media Player is better: more formats supported from the get go, better...

    Speaker Solution for Headrest Mounted iPad?

    Are you sure she minds what she is listening? My younger two year old does not mind much what she's listening, as long as something colorful is happening and she is listening something. She does know how to use a headphone, the problem is that the car's wireless headphones do not fit her much...

    Just ordered a car mount from PadHoldr

    I like it a lot, thanks for posting the pictures and all the info! There's some ipad related apps out there but I'm hoping for a complete front end dedicated for the iPad. So instead of using the Spring board directly, you'd launch this app everytime you'd hop on the car, with a better...

    My review: biggest issue: book reading aps are not up to par.

    I'm a professor too, and I know about those citation formats. Some of them are for online e-books, which can be easily checked or searched with a browser. You usually use this when you have no other choice. You can't browse an iPad or kindle version in the same way, where the page number can...

    Film Maker wanting to utilize the Ipad.... Help!

    I would use a Tablet PC with an integrated 3MP camera, such as this one: Motion Computing F5. It's rugged (the screen is indestructible, and they Hydis AFFS+ screen is considered the best in the biz outdoors, no glare at all), and the whole thing is spill proof (against directly splashing...

    iPad is Great, iTunes is not.

    Just a question: is it possible for searching for duplicates in the library (not just displaying them), by more than one criteria (ex. name, file contents, file size)? Does it automatically updates the library if you rename or add album art to a file? O change tags using another editor? Does...

    How to retrieve apps that "overflow" off the screen?

    Well that just happened to me. Good luck I found this thread. I can see 11 home screens on my iTunes, but the 12th is greyed out. I can move apps from there to the other screen, I will delete some first. And as posted above, if you do a search, it will show the app, but you have to know the...

    iPad Threat Looms Large over Amazon’s Kindle

    Effective? Not so fast. I do have an AG screen protector, just bought another (writeshield, the best in the biz, AFAIK). They do improve things, but you still can see reflections. Not so much with indoor lighting, but outside, outdoors, it is still bad. What they do is they SPREAD the...

    iTunes update

    Another thread on this? People don't search? This is getting tiresome. I wish mods be more active and combine/delete threads. If you'd search, you'd know that I have installed 9.2 (spirit j/b) no issues. If you have a different experience, you could post on that thread.

    iPad Threat Looms Large over Amazon’s Kindle

    I think the iPad is too heavy for reading, holding it with one hand can be tiring. The Kindle has better battery and it's much lighter, not to mention the screen is so much better (not reflective at all, while the iPad is a glare country). I think there's a market for the Kindle, surely, but...
