Well isn't this just gorgeous
My first impression is just wow.....
Off to play in the app store
I feel like a proud papa!
Tom macwave:... where's my cigar?)
Hmmm there is a lot of dropout with the internet at the moment, wonder why that might be
Dropout how? What's it actually doing. Are you in Safari, Mail, App Store, iBooks? Or is it all of them. How far are you from your access point? How many bars are showing in the wireless indicator in the upper left corner. Are you holding your mouth just right in the prescribed position?
Do you have any stray sun spots anywhere in the house?
Tom macwave:... just kidding about the sun spots! )
Well for about 10 minutes it was struggling to connect to the internet in the app store and here - all is fine now - its healed itself in true apple form
iBooks is just wonderful - glad I bought Lisa one - have only just got it back off her
So glad both it and you are happy again!
Keep in mind you can find loads of free eBooks out there on the Internet. Perhaps one of the best resources for them is here. Of course, there's others too. Like here. Or, just do a Google search for "free epub ebooks". You'll come up with enough reading to last a lifetime!
Tom macwave:... loves iBooks!)
Can you read those epub books on iBooks then?
had to forcibly. Pull Lisa away from angry birds HD
On your Mac, go get one of the free eBooks you want. For instance, here's a link to an ePub of H.G. Wells "War of the Worlds". It's from one of those sites I mentioned earlier. Now take the downloaded file and drag it over your iTunes icon in the Dock. This will launch iTunes and import the book into your iTunes library. Now just sync your iPad. Bingo, you've got "War of the Worlds" on your iPad in your iBooks library.
Tom macwave:... what's better than free books?)
Here, let her stare at this post. Maybe it will satisfy her long enough for you to get to play with your iPad.
Tom macwave:... just trying to help!)
We need a "I'm jealous I don't have an iPad yet" thread!
Green doesn't suit you mick
jealous!! dont think so mate
right now the kids are home I cant get anywhere near it
thats so typical chris

Tell them to put it down!
When they ask why?
Tell them, "Because I'm the Daddy and I said so. That's why!"
Tom macwave:... aw, that's Ok. It never worked on my daughter either!)
