    What do you think you'll use your iPad for?

    Kind of like "iCrap"? :)

    New iPad car mount!

    Great point! How hard is it to pry teeth out of the magical screen?:D

    New iPad car mount!

    Yes, of course. You're describing the handy "Presentation and Display Profile" that this marvelous new accessory offers --- at no additional charge! ;)

    New iPad car mount!

    OK, here it is! My new iPad car mount. It's called my steering wheel. Works great! (Not recommended while driving, of course.)

    Whats the best leather carrying case cover for iPad?

    I'd recommend trying out the relatively inexpensive Apple iPad sleeve/case before spending big bucks on a fancy leather case -- unless fancy-shmancy is your thing, of course. If my Apple case wears out, I'll get another. It's small, thin, keeps the iPad from slipping from my hands, props up...

    How to Organize the Apps?

    Make sure you keep checking to make sure they stay in alphabetical order. :D

    iPad 3G Support Group Thread

    As I understand it, the 3G Support thread was initially started for those who were obsessively waiting (like me) for the 3G model to ship to commiserate --- and, eventually, literally track hundreds of poor FedEx drivers as they drove through various neighborhoods, etc. Seems like a good idea...

    OK,, I take it back...

    What a great post! The therapeutic benefits of the iPad were apparent to me right away. I'm in my 60's and find that with the combination of a bad disk in my neck along with raising my head to read on my computer with tri-focal glasses my neck pain increases. I had to limit my online...

    Who's having buyers remorse?

    No remorse here, even though my iPad has been a meeting stopper a few times. When the inquiries get to too much at a coffee shop, I just start telling them how helpful it has been selling life insurance. Usually they leave skid marks. Actually, since I really sell promotional products, having...

    Sync Firefox bookmarks with iPad?

    Thanks GiPad, that worked. Had the MobileMe working ok, but did not set up Safari with Xmarks, only Firefox. Appreciate the help!

    Sync Firefox bookmarks with iPad?

    Bookmarks were touched on elsewhere regarding IE bookmarks, but am looking for a way to sync my Mac's Firefox bookmarks with iPad. Anyone know of way to do this?

    Is there a point of having an iPad if you own an iPhone

    I still use them both, but find that I'm eliminating some apps from the phone that are best suited for the pad, etc. Overall, I'm using a my iPhone much less now, but I wasn't a big talker anyway. The iPhone is still my iPod, but most of my photos are now on the iPad. Still use the phone for...

    What do you think you'll use your iPad for?

    I'll be using it for reading, along with more portable access to all my online needs, etc. As an old guy with neck problems, combined with tri-focals for reading, it gets downright uncomfortable and painful doing any extensive reading on my iMac. The iPad displays EVERYTHING better, brighter...

    iPad 3G Support Group Thread

    Now that I've had it for a few days, I'm still totally in awe of this new gadget. I've decided that I can go ahead and sell my MacBook (unless my daughter or grandson whine a whole lot first...) as I really don't need it anymore. I used the laptop mainly for on-the-road internet access...

    iPad 3G Support Group Thread

    Finally showed up just befiore 5 pm. I forgot to consider that I was no longer in the Chicago area and was now on Wisconsin Time. That means "give or take a couple two-tree hours. Hmmmm... Playing with my new toy dissipated all anger and all is forgiven. :)

    iPad 3G Support Group Thread

    Here's an item from MacWorld regarding protectors. Many comments as well. Apple Stores purging screen protection? | Accessories | iPhone Central | Macworld I personally avoid them, mainly because I can never get rid of that ONE last bubble!!!!

    iPad 3G Support Group Thread

    This is a great observation!! It's really hard right now exploring the iPad Forum, checking my order status AND credit card account at the same time!! Kidding aside, in this short-attention-span-theater environment these days, this might be one of the best features of the iPad, at least for...

    Goofy iPad app I'd like to see

    Saw a photo of a guy with an iPad hanging around his neck Flave-style. Got me thinking how much fun it would be to have an app that displayed a landscape video image of an Xray of a human chest showing heart beating. Other options could be Alien-like creatures crawling around, stuff going down...

    iPad 3G Support Group Thread

    Add me to the list of incurably obsessive "where's-my-damn-iPad-shipping-notice-email" types! Couldn't wait any longer and after a 5 minute or so wait on the phone was told (by my new best friend "Vicky") that my order indeed will be fulfilled this week and confirmed delivery on Friday. Now...

    Soon to be iPad 3G owner

    About a week away from getting my 3G model, but have found this forum to be a valuable source of information, observations and ideas regarding the iPad. I'm a long-time gadget freak, a retired firefighter and PR guy, now an independent distributor of promotional products, etc. The iPad should...
