    Safari gestures/swipes - there are none?

    I'm always looking for an easier way to do things. Of course everyone has different habits. What struck me more was that it made me recall all the original talk about how using finger swipes was going to make all this opportunity to create complex gestures that the phone could recognize to make...

    Safari gestures/swipes - there are none?

    So that's it, same old stuff. That's what I thought. It could use some innovation.

    Safari gestures/swipes - there are none?

    I was just watching that video of the Joojoo. For all it's faults there was one feature that Made me realize either I am missing something about Safari, or Safari is missing something. On the joojoo, you can swipe up a page to delete that browser tab when you're done with it. On the iPad you...

    Tracking my iPad

    Mine finally showed up in tracking at the place it's usually delivered from at 9am. I called UPS at noon, and they have a special message for the iPad saying they'll all go out by the end of the day. Based on past experience, I am near the end of the UPS route in my area, which on regular days...

    Can just a regular iPad be used as an iPad ebook?

    dang, I typo-ed the title. I meant "can a regular pdf file be used as iPad ebook?" I mean if I have pdf files, text files, word docs, html files or rtf files can I open them in iBooks and read them, save bookmarks, have them read aloud, etc.

    Tracking my iPad

    absolutely. Mine says it's in Korea right now. Wouldn't be in Korea ever, would it? It already said Louisville days ago. It even said Houston at one point. This is an odd way for UPS to obfuscate the details, though.

    The next big utility....convert existing ebooks to ePub format

    One thing I never saw (probably didn't look hard enough) was a PDF reader for the iPhone that would "re-paginate" PDF files so they could be read well in adjustable font size on the iPhone. It's important to be able to see the full width of a page when reading, to not have to scroll back and...

    Tracking my iPad

    Touché. Ok, I'll try, but this is immensely hard. The...iPad...looks...cool. Oh man, now I feel dirty. I just don't want Apple to sit on it's hands. All these things are cool, Windows, Mac, etc. Believe me, I'm keeping these guys in businesss. But they're not as good as they could be. I don't...

    Can just a regular iPad be used as an iPad ebook?

    Can just a regular PDF file be used as an iPad ebook? Or what about other text file formats like an html page, Text file or other Word processor file? Or is there some iTunes utility to convert file like that you have?

    Tracking my iPad

    They're not in China. Mine went from China, then to Louisville, then all the way to Houston where I live. They're being held at the local hubs and the tracking has been manually set to not show any detail (well, globally updated using a database command, I'm sure). Our iPads will be showing up...

    iPad printing

    Well, they didn't want to write all the drivers, that's for sure. The iPad is an always connected device, the only drivers loaded on the iPad would be the ones necessary for your specific printers. Actually, I guess it would be up to the printer manufacturers to write the drivers just like with...

    Live iPad Streaming

    Yeah, you're right. I keep wanting the iPad to be everything it could be. It's almost something I could give my Mom that she could replace her desktop with that she finds so daunting. Printing is the only thing it doesn't have that she needs (and the dependency on a desktop for iTunes), though...

    iPad printing

    It's more like Apple needs to add printing to the API and then develop it into their own apps, and each developer can have the choice to implement it themselves, just like with Windows and Mac. Printing isn't an "app" it's a operating system resource like standard windowing or the cut and paste...

    Live iPad Streaming

    Printing, camera, handwriting recognition, Flash, wide screen, replaceable battery, USB ports, card reader, multi-tasking. Come on people, help me make the definitive list of things that make the iPad sub par. Won't that HP Slate have every one of these things? Don't get POed at me for pointing...
