(...) So basically, from time to time (like, every other day or every two days) the iPad screen gets crazy and it's like an invisible child is pushing every button on the screen, opening apps and writting giberish on the keyboard (...)

You may have the Grudge kid at home ;)

I went back to the store and they gave me a new one, I no longer have touchscreen problems

Please ignore my comment above. You do not have the Grudge kid at home.

Something else I wonder about Skype: A Skype call will ring on my phone, iPad 1 or 2, or laptop, but not always the same one, and sometimes on two devices about the same time. But it's not consistent, though I just put all the devices to sleep and don't log off Skype.

Well, that sounds perfectly Skype to me. Hopefully, Microsoft will dump some serious money in to it and make it work better.

Puzzled now. So the iPad will collect mail when in standby. I stopped the mail app (double click home button. Tap and hold app at bottom of screen,tap cross, app vanishes from running list) but it still collects mail in standby! How's that?

That's what it does. Any mail will be pushed to iOS in settings. This is good.

That happens because your email is set to push in Settings. If you don't want that, you can set it so that you just check email manually. (That's also one way of saving battery life, though I don't know how significant the savings are.)

I didn't think the old version of Skpye worked on the Ipad2? If it does I'll down load it myself. I've been waiting for the new release...

The new release is dragging its heels it seems but, the old version works fine. You will just have to 2X it and turn the iPad to portrait.

You can turn it back to lanscape when you are talking to someone and the video will orient itself to landscape.

Cheers,

Geoff
