    Not Charging-Not True, it is even when hooked up to a PC!

    Indeed. Some USB ports, mainly on newer Macs, have the juice the iPad needs.

    Not Charging-Not True, it is even when hooked up to a PC!

    When it says "Not Charging" it isn't, because the screen is drawing too much power. When the screen goes off, it starts charging. Think of it like the refrigerator light that you can't see turn off. If you're looking, it's not charging. If you're not looking, it is.

    Purchased 3GS on launch day 2009, but $0 discount for iPhone 4. Full price only?

    I did confirm that by paying full price (ouch) there is no contract extension and upgrade eligibility dates don't change, so at least I will get the cheapest price for iPhone 5. Off to raise the $699 + tax.

    Purchased 3GS on launch day 2009, but $0 discount for iPhone 4. Full price only?

    I'm in the same boat. FAN discount, monthly bill under $75, no upgrade subsidy until November (partial) and February (full). And yes, I will be paying the $699 because I have to have it. Since there's no subsidy, I am assuming the upgrade eligibility dates won't change, so at least next year...

    Family plan surprise

    No family plan, only line, bought every iPhone on day one, but my monthly bill is under $75 (and in the past, that has been a problem, since all accelerated subsidies are for people who pay over $100/mo pretax).

    Family plan surprise

    Not true. I have bought every iPhone and for the 4 I am getting no subsidy. AT&T says full subsidy upgrade in 2011, partial subsidy in November 2010. So I'll be paying $699. This is on a FAN account, which also meant Apple wouldn't let me order (I made all the way through the order process 4...

    Syncing photos to iPad

    Weird. Well, there's always the reboot everything option and try again.

    New iPad comercial

    MacRumors posted the story yesterday, with links to both the iPad and Newton commercials http://www.macrumors.com/2010/05/12/apple-gives-a-nod-to-newton-with-new-what-is-ipad-ad/. Kind of cool homage (and funny, since Jobs killed the Newton as soon as he returned to Apple) The voice in the...

    Syncing is horrible on iPad

    There are some apps that greatly add to backup time. Zinio is my worst offender, and the more magazines you download into it, the longer the backups take. But it's such a cool app that I put up with it.

    For everyone that pre ordered after the 19th

    Picked it up from FedEx Friday night. Then spent 36 hours in hell trying to restore my existing iPad to the new one. The restores would hang forever and then fail until I removed Zinio (great app, but if you have a lot of magazines it adds at least an hour to backups and restores). Then the...

    For everyone that pre ordered after the 19th

    Fortunately, the depot is right near my house and is open till 11 and on Saturday, so worst case I'll have it tomorrow morning, and probably late tonight.

    For everyone that pre ordered after the 19th

    Woke up this morning all excited about getting my 3G iPad, only to find FedEx came at 7:45 AM and didn't knock loud enough to wake me up. So now my new iPad is enjoying a truck ride all day, and won't get back to the depot until after I have to be at a graduation dinner. Curse FedEx and their...
