Has anyone updated to iOS5 on their iPad yet? Any thoughts?
I read a review of speed times for all iDevices and they all increased in speed, except iPad1.  Will wait for second update of iOS5

Seeing as how I have the iPad 1, I'm going to wait as long as I possible can before I update. The same goes for my iPhone 3GS (that is if I don't update to the 4S)

3G and 3GSs with slow speed were told to do a hard reset, that should correct the problem. Dont know if this is a fix for the iPad (v1).

Sunsabitches.


I've pinched this from another thread. Our member Jsh1120 has supplied this info. For some reason I couldn't get the whole quote though, but this says it all Hope you don't mind Steve.

() Apple has negotiated contracts with several publishers to put their publications into "Newsstand." These include all of the Conde Nast publications as well as others, e.g. New York Times.

() A user cannot eliminate the "Newsstand" or put it into another folder. Like other apps forced on the user by Apple it cannot be eliminated. And since it's a folder it cannot be placed in another folder. (Another of iOS's annoying limitations.) If you don't want to look at an empty set of shelves your only option is to stick it on that back page you never look at.

() If you happen to subscribe to a publication that is part of a Newsstand contract, that subscription will go into the Newsstand "folder." You cannot move it out. (I know this because I've had a subscription to the New Yorker, a Conde Nast publication, for a long time and it's now stuck in Newsstand.)

() If you subscribe to a publication that is not part of a Newsstand contract, (e.g. Washington Post) you cannot put it into "Newsstand." Nor can you put any other "news" app such as Flipboard into Newsstand. Or any other app (e.g. The Onion) for that matter.

OK -- old-guy tech question.

We have an i-Pad II that we're taking to London soon. It only works on Wi-Fi (no 3 or 4G). I assume that it will work with the free wireless networks that are now all over London (through the Olympics). Am I correct?

Yea, it should work the same as it would on any other wi-fi system, be it in your house or in the hotel in London. Where are you all staying over there?

You have to hold it with the power button on the left side though instead of the right like here in the states.

When you going? If over Christmas...we may run into you. Wi-Fi will be fine. Used mine in the hotel in January.

we're going next week with the nephews and then in March with The L&T Lifemate's students, so I guess we'll miss y'all.

I'm ready to get back -- I really like England.

Merry Christmas to me...I'm now an iPad owner.
First or second edition?

Julie doesn't know it yet, but she is getting a II for Christmas.    Probably going to put my first edition to shame.
