    Help With Camera Connection Kit

    Format to FAT 32 alone may be the problem The camera connection kit when it detects a card with pictures immediately launches the photo import program. It most probably does that since it reads and for most every camera finds a directory named DCIM. In the computer formatting of a card wipes...

    How to keep kids from accidentally deleting apps

    Keep them away from the computer you use to sync the ipad. You can always put them back as long as they are in your itunes. Deletion is only permanent then and only after emptying the trash or recycle bin.

    of course I had on purple and gold just like every day in one way or another. I need to find a purple case for this baby. I haven't been home since I picked it up, so it's still virgin. I need for the Geaux Zone to adopt HTML 5 so I can watch Tiger baseball on the ipad.

    How often do you charge your iPad?

    It will probably come almost completely charged. At least my WiFi one did. Use it today and/or tomorrow and top it off tonight or tomorrow night. Let it run down some and charge back up again and exercise the battery to different levels each time to help condition them. My understanding is that...

    The iPad competition quites before it gets started

    Since they just bought Palm, there is speculation that they will look to assimilate them and then use pieces or all of the Web OS to drive their "Slate". Atom and Windows aren't the answer and I think the Ipad has made that more than obvious to them.

    Haven't a clue about my credit card, but mine is in Memphis as well as of just after midnight. Updates are kind of screwy since it means that it would have taken 18 hours to go from Nashville to Memphis. I think all the updates are lagging by several hours.

    Not quite the last dinosaur. I retired from IBM last year after 30 years of selling those mainframes. I programmed my first one back in college in 1970 with punch cards on a keypunch machine. It was a System 360 model 65 with a whopping 1 MB of real "core (donut) memory". My first personal...

    If this is your shipment it isn't an ipad. I looked at your attachment and it shows shipping weight of your package as 1 pound. Ipad's weigh 1.5 lbs. without the box. It certainly isn't going to weigh 1 lb. with the box. My 3G shipping weight says 4lbs. You must have something else ordered...

    Shipping info posted by Fed Ex for my 3G that shipped. For those waiting for 10 am delivery unfortunately FORGET IT. Mine says for delivery by 3 PM via standard overnight. I guess that is what "Priority Shipping" has translated to for Fed Ex and Apple.

    I have used the Zagg on my cameras, iphone and put one on my 32GB WiFi iPad. Absolutely no difference in touch sensitivity. I have one ready to go on my 64GB WiFi +3G on Friday. IMHO, it's the best product out there. Zero effect on visual except that it does cut down ever so slightly on glare...

    It will be interesting to see. She may yet see it change for "prepared for shipment". If not this Friday delivery, it still may ship by "Late April" yet arrive in the first few days of May. Good luck with it.

    The May 7th ship date was announced on April 19th, not the 18th. From all that I have seen, you should still be good for Friday. Key is whether you got an email from Apple for each order confirming end of April ship date. If you got the email, for both, then both should ship.

    I have a 32GB Wi-Fi that I got on April 3rd that is going to my son on Friday (64GB Wifi + 3G). So I would be happy to answer any questions to help get first timers started. First and foremost, if you haven't done so already install or upgrade to iTunes 9.1 or you will have to wait for it to...

    My Apple customer number shows the same number in the email, but no reference in the order itself in the order detail record in the Apple store. Probably a number they assigned to all 3G preorders if everyone checks.

    Apple wireless keyboard

    It does work great with the ipad. It takes a short time to link, but does so without any issues. But you need to remember to hit the eject key to disconnect or it will stay connected for a L O N G time. I guess that's great, but could eat batteries big time on the keyboard long term.

I am just guessing here, but Apple expects you to sync back through iTunes with your Mac based Numbers and then convert to Excel there. Since the function is in Pages, I am hoping they didn't have time to fully test it before launch...
