Hi to all, I used to be known as cross trainer here, but have been away for some time, couldn't use my old username due to email address change.

New site looks great. I have become an iPad addict as well as my PC stuff, still going strong. Hope all who know me are well!

Jeff

Vintage90 - iPad 2 OS 4.3.3 - I also have issues with adding a hyperlink - it appears at the top of the page rather than bottom which means I have to scroll to find it.

Cymro - I agree.

There are alternatives to Safari, but it means Jailbreaking (I wouldn't) IOS5 promises tabbed browsing amongst other features. The new Cloud version of itunes can be downloaded now from the US site, but I'm waiting until it appears as an offical update when I sync.

My dislike of Apple is down to their business practices and complete lock-in of their OS and hardware.

If I buy a device I like to be able to use it in the way I want to, not how Mr Jobs wants me to.

"Jailbreaking" an expensive phone to run a program on it, and running the risk of it being bricked with the next software update, is not something I want to have to do.

I also don't like the attitude of many Apple fans, who worship the company in a similar blinkered way to religious fundamentalists.

Having said that, enjoy your iPad, it's a decent piece of kit, we have many of my customers use them for viewing their security cameras and alarm systems.

I have no intention of Jailbreaking the device. The tabbed browsing will be good.

iTunes in the Cloud (10.3) is also available on the UK site Click Here

Just got my first 'Please wait" since the new server

A very warm welcome back from me - goodness how that original name of yours takes me back to the old days.

Like you, I've become an avid iPad fan. I acquired one when I had to advise some clients on devices for their sales staff to travel around with, and the iPad came out top of the list. They're happily using them now, and I am enjoying mine far more than I ever thought possible. It really does come very close to my idea of the perfect device.

Frankly I couldn't care less if Apple does make billions if this is the kind of technology the company produces. It knocks all other mobile devices into the middle of next week as far as I'm concerned, and it now travels with me wherever I go. It has nothing to do with worshipping the company in a blinkered way, and everything to do with recognising an excellent product when I see one.

Enjoy the forum......again.

Thanks again!

The 50% of me that is Welsh feels entitled to say that most Welsh villages are somewhat obscure. I look forward to failing to guess the answers - as always.

"..it's good to know a lot of you remain here"

You might be surprised to know just how many forum members from yesteryear are still with us, albeit with different user-names in many cases. No names, no pack drill, but you're among friends. Not everyone posts in the threads, but they're watching. I get lots of emails behind the scenes.

Vintage90. Good to hear about the Ipad, I ordered one last week. Not impressed with 2-3 week delivery from Apple. My expert ( No2 Grandson) says if you want to just use it go Apple - if you want to play with it and experiment go Android.
