    Made homemade family dvd with menus, can it transfer over?

    I think they convert as chapters. Try HandBrake (now with an iPad preset) or FormatFactory for those type-A personalities. See the link in my sig.

    iPad Jailbreaking is Illegal?

    Totally legal: "Under the DMCA of 2010, jailbreaking is legal in the United States, although Apple has announced that the practice "can violate the warranty."[1] It is also legal in many other countries including those of the EU. However, the jailbreaking process does not include any...

    A killer PDF on the iPAD

    Do you have a Mac or PC? I often have weird compatibility problems because I use hundreds of PDFs. If on a Mac, just open it in the default PDF viewer thing, and do a Save As... In 100% of my tests, that fixes iPad compatibility unless the PDF was intentionally corrupted by hackers and scammers...

    What stylus to buy?

    I use the Pogo for drawing, taking notes and annotating PDF files in GoodReader. The size if the thing is too tiny in my hands, and the mushy tip bugs me. I was thinking of giving the Griffin or Alupen a shot.

    disappearance of the symbol of wifi signal

    Advice for getting Google Earth when restricted.

    Thanks for the tip. No idea why it wouldn't work, though as it works here in Switzerland.

    Bags and Slings ????

    My man purse, or as I prefer to call it "action pouch" is similar the TimBuc2, but more stylish. I really like that form factor, and would like simething in leather - but so far they just haven't been affordable.

    Can anyone recommend an iPad2 6' charge/sync cable and 12v charger?

    Go have a look at the Apple World Travel adapter. Besides what it says on the box, it comes with a long power cable. Apple World Travel Adapter Kit - Apple Store (U.S.)

    Is there an iAnnotate-like app for .docx, .rtf, .doc's ?

    I think we're still waiting for the perfect Office app. What I personally do is save my Office files to PDF and annotate the within that app.

    please help now i am disappointed w ipad2

    Some people on another forum are recommending the app Downloader for downloading and reading .RAR files. Usually inside the various apps (I use GoodReader) you can mail files. While i don't disagree with the points you list as frustration, stick with it, with 60k apps and counting, there is...

    So - So review

    60k apps and counting. I don't disagree with your review, but I place very heavy weight on the battery, portability, and apps.

    Magazines on iPad, How Important Is an App?

    Excellent! But I don't agree with this 100%. I see the app as equal to the content. The advantage of getting the app right, is you should only have to do it once, nail it, then focus on what you love to do - creat great content! For me, a crappy app makes great content less enjoyable - or...

    Goodreader performance on iPad 2?

    In my tests, it is at least twice as fast loading pages and annotation.

    The Pulse is good, but Zite is better. You should DEFINATELY check if your local rag has an app. Here, they all ad-supported and free.

    What was your first car and favourite car ever!

    My first 'car' - while I shudder to call it that - was a 1988 Jeep Wrangler. The best all-time is the 2007+ Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. But the Tesla Roadster is my second place.

    Magazines on iPad, How Important Is an App?

    Very, but I didn't write totally because, let's face it, the success of your company isn't 100% reliant on the app. That said, I am a heavy consumer of Magazine apps, and the usability of the app is as important as the content. Wired magazine does it right, GQ does it wrong. And if your...

    iOS 5- what would you like to see for iPad?

    Did you guys see this? Pretty awesome if you ask me, sunlight readable, low power, and you could use it to fake a double resolution because one screen lies over the other.

    I want to hear from all you 3G ipad owners, has it been worth it?

    Yes, totally worth it. You only pay when you want to use it, right? It makes taking the iPad on the road a very strong tool.

    ipad 2 and 1 same screen?

    We also had the two iPads side by side and the iPad 2 screen is dramatically different. I'll read that Anand link now, but my gut feeling is that the contrast is better and it just feels "deeper". Woot, 2000 posts.

    Screen Bleeding Problem - Question

    By the way, the bleeding on my GFs iPad 2 is much less than my iPad 1. Somehow. Think this is a storm in a teacup. That being said, I hope my order is perfect ;)

    Ok, name the American made alternative? Both Google (android) and Apple are US companies. This forum is international, and your comments probably won't be well-received.

    What is the ipad2 like for intensive web browsing?

    I do 95% of my browsing on the iPad. Wonderful. And my girlfriend has an iPad 2 (while I wait for delivery of mine) and it is even better.
