    Print n Share or Print n Lie?

    There is never going to be a generally viable printing solution for the iPad that doesn't involve a computer of some sort. Consumer printers these days have virtually no "smarts" in them at all... all of the "brains" are in the print drivers. Even many printers that used to have onboard...

    What Kind of iPad Case Are You Getting?

    If you like the folio style and general functionality of the Apple case, I recommend the Macally Bookstand. Mine is holding up extremely well, keeps all ports very exposed for no interference, and is the LEAST obtrusive case I've seen. Virtually the entire front of the iPad is exposed when the...

    Wonderful Bible App

    I used OliveTree back-in-the-day when they first produced readers for PocketPC and WinCE devices. But since then the pricing of their translations seems excessive. I don't know what the cause is for those prices, (licensing or development) but I ended up downloading 2 or 3 of the Bible...

    Best RSS App

    Good point. I don't use Google Reader (can't stand it) but I can see how anyone who DOES use it would not like Early Edition. EE attempts to recreate the newspaper metaphor in usages not just appearance. That is far different than how most traditional RSS readers function. Using EE at the...

    Best RSS App

    I agree. This app has single-handedly helped me to reduce the time I spend catching up on the sites that I regularly follow.

    Keyboard Dock vs. Bluetooth Keyboard

    Nice to see Freedom Input is still around. I owned a folding Freedom keyboard for my iPAQ back-in-the-day. I look forward to the availability of this keyboard. (sorry, but I don't do preordering)

    Got my iPad Switcheasy Nude (white), took some close up pics

    Nice review. How are you preventing the BT keyboard from accidentally turning on? It looks like it is as snug a fit as the Targus case I use and the keyboard turns on with the slightest pressure to the power button.

    iPad crash while watching video

    This sounds like the likely cause. I've used my iPad to watch locally stored movies continuously for 4-5 hours on a plane flight without problems.

    Spirit on iPad

    I originally had no desire to jb my iPad... I was quite pleased with the default functionality. However, after reading about getting the magic mouse to work, I ended up jb'ing. The magic mouse is surprisingly functional for the most part. There are some areas where it doesn't seem to register...

    It's been a month....How would you rate the iPad?

    If rating it in terms of how well the actual product delivers on the expectations promised during announcement: 10/10. I expected it to do everything that I had hoped a netbook would be able to do (but fell short), and the iPad does.

    Word processing?

    I don't think that it is "pretty obvious" that people would primarily use landscape. Yes, that is the standard orientation for desktops and laptops, but the iPad works "outside the box". For working on docs to be printed, portrait mode is more natural. But having said that, I agree that the...

    Word processing?

    Each application (Pages, Numbers, Keynote) of the iWork suite is sold separately for $10 each. Just buy Pages if you want a word processor.

    Can't decide on a freaking case!

    Case manufacturers (with a few exceptions) have done nothing creative with regard to the iPad. They're simply upsizing their iPod/iPhone cases. I'm baffled as to why an overwhelming number of "cases" (and I use that term loosely) are so concerned with protecting the back of the device, while...

    Can't decide on a freaking case!

    This is the correct answer.
