    Angry Birds is destroying my life. Today it reduced Steven to tears and all he was doing was watching me play it. :unsure:

    I am on a level that I've done before but when I was an idiot and synced with a different library I lost all my progress and had to start again.

    It's more frustrating knowing you've done it before and you can't do it again!

    I blame skywatcher for making us all play it :yes:

    All night back from Orlando it was all I could do.. just one more level, just one more level. Coming into land and they asked for all electronic devices to be put away and I just kept hiding it as they went past.

    Yes, it's all skywatcher's fault

    Not according to my DW's son. He was here this weekend and I ruined his life by letting him play Angry Birds HD on my iPad. Based on what he was saying, the iPhone version is different than the iPad version.

    Keep in mind thought that he may not be 100% trustworthy in this. After all, he works in Hollywood! :ROFL:

    Tom :)macwave:... he ran my battery down to nuthin!)

    oh. Seems like such an obvious thing to offer? either give a code when you get to a new level which we could use to get back there or store the highest level attained online somewhere

    At the moment the iPad version only has the first 2 themes as well. But they have been so good at adding levels to the iPhone I'm sure the others are coming

    Well a few days in and the family all still love the thing. I came back from work yesterday and started grumbling about battery time, only to be told it had been on constantly for 6 hours :lol:

    Lisa is desperate for hers to come and it has already become and extension of my arm. For those without it the comparison to how you use an touch or iPhone works well, lived without it fine and couldn't see what all the fuss was about but after a few day s it's just so easy. And intuitive, using the Internet by touch feels so involving, the boards here are just a joy to use and I would rather use the iPad than any oth medium I think

    I am going to get Lisa to join when she gets hers :yes: no excuse about no way to get on then

    Typing is brilliant , only 2 minor problems for me, one is my pinkie on my left hand keeps brushing the toggle key for the numbers so I suddenly find myself typing numerals when I am flying through along post. The other is a pet peeve , on the default keyboard you get a ! But no apostrophe. suppose that goes to show how language changes.

    I am just hungry for more apps to show off what. This can do, a few haven't made it over here yet like dragon dictate.

    Chris,

    Glad you guys are enjoying it as much as you obviously are! :yes:

    Have you tried much with Photos yet. Albums, faces, places, etc. I love the way a quick flick of your fingers expands all the faces into an array of individual photos. A quick pinch puts them all back into a stack.

    Amazing user interface! :thumbsup:

    Tom :)macwave:... I need that camera connection kit!)
