    Charging my ipad with my pc

    Its your computer, not the cable. The USB port on your computer doesn't supply enough power. Most computers don't, I know the new iMacs do however, mine works perfectly.

    Delivery ETA

    Yes, my delivery was dellivered on the date shown on the apple site. It takes a while to get through customs in Alaska and the next point in the contiguous US, mine was in Nashville.

    iPad Users in NYC?

    I'm in Manhattan and would be interested depending on when and where you can meet.

    Virus question

    I always thought this was a silly argument. What hacker wouldn't want to be the first to bring down a product that most view as unable to be brought down? The reason Mac's are less susceptible is that programs run independently of the OS (specifically Safari) whereas on Windows IE is directly...

    I HATE screen protectors

    The bubbles go away after a few days. They will not be there forever. I have the same screen protector from Marware (they threw it in because it took forever for them to ship the case). It works great and the two small bubbles there were there initially are gone now (5 days later).

    iPad WIFI & iPad WIFI+3G

    One has 3G, one doesn't. Neither have SD card slots. Only the 3G has a slot for a SIM. Either cable will charge from the computer, assuming your USB is powerful enough (most are not). In the US, the only difference in the package is it says 3G on the back.

    here the one question for you gentlemen and ladies here on this forum

    Dragging and dropping an icon from one screen to the next is not drag and drop as typically defined. Drag and drop is grabbing files and dragging them from one directory to the next. There is no drag and drop file management in iphone os. Jailbreaks don't count. If you want functionality not...

    Can you multi-task yet?

    Os4 will be put in the sumer for the iPhone. Jobs said it wouldn't be available on the iPad until fall.

    here the one question for you gentlemen and ladies here on this forum

    As I said earlier, USB would ply work if the OS supports drag and drop. It doesn't so it would do no good. I'm not drinking Jobs kool-aid. Blue tooth handles the periperhal issues and cloud computing can handle the files. Why would I want some stupid wired device on a wireless device. Other...

    here the one question for you gentlemen and ladies here on this forum

    That's an OS issue not a USB issue. Even with usb you stil couldnt drag and drop You can email, sync wih itunes or use all kinds of apps for cloud computing. That makes a heck of a lot more sense then using some silly dongle that can break or be lost. And you can access it on any web...

    here the one question for you gentlemen and ladies here on this forum

    Can I ask why? I keep hearing this but for the life of me don't understand why you would want let alone need a USB port. I'm not saying you don't, I just really don't understand! :)

    Why 4:3? Why not wide-screen?

    They are wondering why the screen isn't shaped like a HD tv (widescreen) but rather shaped like an older television (4:3)

    Ordered iPad for Website and Photo Uses...

    It's actually called filterstorm. It's not a replacement for PS but on the iPad it's pretty impressive. Again I've only used it on small jpegs not daws so not sure how it works on larger files.

    is saturday included in business days for delivery of ipad?

    Wrong. As I said earlier, it depends on if FedEx delivers on Saturday in your area. If they do it counts, if the don't it doesn't. I had "standard shipping" and mine was delived on Saturday. I live in Manhattan though where they obviously have saturday delivery.

    Ordered iPad for Website and Photo Uses...

    I am a serious amatuer, not a hobbyist. The ipad is great for viewing pictures, showing protfolios, searching the web, etc. There isn't a great app yet for editing but there is a app called filterpro or something like that (I don't have my ipad with me right now) that is really nice. It does...

    Transfer typing to PC

    Why not just type an e-mail to yourself and then copy and paste? Dropbox seems like a lot of work as it requires two different programs.

    is saturday included in business days for delivery of ipad?

    It depends on where you live. If you live in a place where FedEx delivers on Saturday, yes. If not, no.

    Why 4:3? Why not wide-screen?

    And I find it laughable when people equate screen real estate to aspect ratio. Screen Real estate is based on area. A 9.7" diagonal 4:3 screen has MORE area then a 16:10 9.7" diagonal screen (45.15 vs. 42.25). And what on earth makes you think 4:3 is cheaper then 16:10 on the iPad? Do you...

    Why 4:3? Why not wide-screen?

    Different strokes for different folks I guess as I completely disagree with you. Although on this site you can certainly widen it, it has a minimum width. The apple site has white bars on both sides regardless of how wide you make it. As does cnn, espn, msnbc, fox, nytimes, etc. The standard...

    Why 4:3? Why not wide-screen?

    What websites would be better in 16:9?? The reason PC monitors are going widescreen is because they are multimedia and are now designed to play movies and television shows which are primarily shot in 16x9. Websites and documents are much closer to 4:3. I have a widescreen iMac but for documents...

    Why 4:3? Why not wide-screen?

    Movies are widescreen because movie studios wanted a reason to draw people to the theaters after TV was invented. Standard 35MM film is 6x4 AR.

    Is the iPad a laptop replacement?

    If you need a laptop, get a laptop. The iPad is not a laptop replacement. It will do 95% of what a laptop does but it sounds like you need that other 5%.

    Obama: Too Much Information Bad - Can't Work an iPad

    Letting the markets run free is what caused us the problems we have now, not interest rates discouraging savings. The US as a whole doesn't save anyway, the majority are paycheck to paycheck, they couldn't save if they wanted to. People getting in over their heads on mortgages and then living...

    Obama: Too Much Information Bad - Can't Work an iPad

    Well if you are trying to fight off a recession inherited from 8 years of conservative leadership, yes. Or we could raise interest rates to double digits and further depress housing costs and make it harder for people and businesses to borrow money.

    Think first!

    Based on your avatar and screen name it appears you are a fan of the 80's. Just because you seem to have an affinity to that period doesn't mean the rest of us want to take that leap backwards.

    Obama: Too Much Information Bad - Can't Work an iPad

    I'm saying that the idiocy of a statement saying no liberals will hold office for at least 16 years astounds me (especially considering Obama is in office for at least 2.5 more years). And that happens to be your statement. Since you seem to know what next years economy will be like and you seem...

    Obama: Too Much Information Bad - Can't Work an iPad

    Not knowing how to work a device you have never used and being unable to learn how to use a device are two completely different things. His point was that in the information age of 24/7 news people often take a small snippet of information and construe random things from it. For instance someone...

    Reports are that stores are out of iPads

    Huh?!? Most of the price differences are based on currency and random taxes, not Apple making more money. Where on earth do you come up with a 10% cut?! And I'm sorry, but you can easily blame Apple for not having stock. There isn't a store within miles of me that has any in stock (and I live...

    Think first!

    I have no interest in having a 1.5lb cell phone. This certainly isn't practical as your only cell phone so why should it be a cell phone at all? I'm not going to pay for two phones when I would use one only rarely. Plus there are already internet phone apps such as Skype (and I believe Skype is...

    iPad vs HP Slate

    For someone who apparently doesn't like Apple, you spend a lot of time on a board dedicated to an Apple product. As far as the anti-trust, nothing will come of it. The worst thing that will happen is they will open up the sale of apps to other players which will be bad for the consumer (from...

I can't wait to get that and your iPad!! This is truly my LUCKY...
