    Can a stolen, wiped Ipad be re-registered

    The short answer is yes. I had the bad luck to purchase an iPod touch that someone managed to switch out in a Walmart. I thought I purchased a new 16 gig, but when I got home and opened the packaging someone's used 8 gig model was inside. Unfortunately I didn't notice the switch until I'd...

    plugging ipad into broadband modem

    Not possible. Suggest buying your friend a cheap wireless router. Barring that, you can activate the 3G if you bought a higher end iPad. Or use free wifi at the local places that offer it.

    Will the IPad 2 fit the Michael Kors case?

    I have a Liz Claiborne hardcover case that fits both models of iPads really well, even allowing to plug in the USB cable without having to take it out. Downside is no back hole for the rear camera, but that was not a bother since I rarely use it. I would imagine Kor's case would fit fine as long...

    What is your biggest fear when it comes to damaging your ipad?

    Both of mine are covered, so no fears. I did come close to a scare, however, when I spilled a malt cooler on my iPad 2' tho! Luckily it was in its case and suffered no damage.

    iOS5 backing up forever

    Turn off calendar and contacts synching, as well as any other non essential things like bookmarks, notes, etc. the sync will be considerably faster and you can then use the cloud to update all calendars, etc... I use Outlook in Win 7 professional and couldn't wait hours for a sync. It worked for me.

    Anyone writing a book on their Ipad 2?

    You can write anything on the iPad. But to properly format a manuscript takes more than Pages or Quick Office can handle. As much as I would love to write my books on the iPad (and I am a professional writer) its just impossible. Also, the longer the document gets, the harder it is to scroll...

    Help with "Pages" app, please?

    Is the file .doc or .docx? Pages will not open the latter. You have to convert to earlier version.

    The whole "it's a giant iPod Touch" thing....

    When I got my iPod touch I used wish it was larger because I hated typing emails on it. Then came the iPad. Wish granted.

    Best way to get documents to and from Ipad2?

    Dropbox works for me since I need to access files through pc and iPad.

    The big decision.

    Yes, worth every dime. My laptop is now unused and I only use my heavy duty desktop for work. Everything else the iPad covers.

    I simply bought both, lol. I may pass 1 onto a relative who is too broke to have one. I can write them off taxes as a work expense, so upgrading was a no brainer.

    Installing screen protectors

    I ruined a couple before I learned how to apply them flawlessly ( mine go on the second the iPad is unwrapped, brand new) it's all in taking it slow and working from the center. Make sure you get all debris off the screen with a fine cloth made for picking up dust and fine hairs. Then unroll...

    Getting bubbles out from under a screen protector?

    You can try and rub the bubbles toward the edge using a soft cloth over your finger tip. Or you can rip it off, get a new one and use a credit card to guide the cover onto the surface as you unroll the protective film. I ruined a couple before I learned how to apply them flawlessly ( mine go on...

    Did you use a full 64 gb on your Ipad ?

    I've never filled mine half way, but I don't keep a lot of movies or tv shows on it. I did buy the largest they had since files seem tom grow larger with each passing year.

    iPad Feet

    I have a book style fold over cover the works quite nicely and even has a hole for the camera. They are at Walmart for about 30 dollars. You can even use it to prop the iPad up when watching movies. Protects front and back.

    Have a saying from your country?

    My editor actually made me cut a local bit of slang that I had a character say: I'm so hungry that my stomach thinks my throat has been cut. She simply could not grasp what it meant and so I had to rewrite the line to clarify.
