Has anyone bought the screen protectors?  I'm curious how they work and if they do more damage than they prevent.
I have not and the screen seems to still be in good shape...one tiny scratch and that's it.  I've had it since about a week after the big launch, whenever that was...April?

Is it possible to right click in iPad?
in Safari, touch the link for a bit, you'll open up a box (open, open in new window, copy)

Thanks.  Oddly enough, it was your picture in the grocery store I was trying to find out some backstory.

Any tips for scrolling in the comments section of this website?  If I quote a long passage, it sometimes takes up the entire pane and I can't seem to get to the end of the quote to make a comment.

Anyone know how (if even possible) to close all the open apps on the multitasking bar rather than do it individually?
I still haven't figured out how to activate the multitasking.

Not about Ipad, but we've decided to get a track mouse for the HP Insperion. The internal mouse is erratic, per the reviews I've read.

I have Steve Earle's version of Lennon/McCartney's "I'm lookin' through you" on the iPad.  However, when I click the link in The iPod app to sort by composer, it doesn't show up.  What gives?

Double click the button and on the bottom of the screen will be all the apps displayed horizontally- choose one and the current one will fold away, but still be active, double click the button again and you can then choose the original app that folded away...

I thought that was it, but every single app I've ever launched is down there so I figured I was wrong.

So DFW advertises free wi-fi at several gates throughout the airport until January 1.  I go to one, see the Free Public Wi-Fi in my options and select it.  Then launch safari and get the message I am not connected to the Internet.  Grrrr.

You are actually connecting to someone's computer, rather than a router. Check the IP you are assigned. if it starts with 169.xx then you are connected to an ad-hoc network

We are home now, so I can't follow your advice, but thanks for posting it.
