Decided to make a new post for the screenshots. The other was going to be too long.
So, what can you do with an iPad? Nearly anything!
1) Read the news

3) Check the weather
4) Do some research
5) Create a presentation
6) Take notes in Class
7) Write your essays, or the Great Novel
8) Show off your photos
9) Play some games
10) Look up a recipe
11) Discover your place in the world
12) Chat to friends
13) Play the piano
14) Web surf to your hearts content
15) Watch a movie
16) Visit the App Store
17) Read a book
18) Write your wordpress blog posts.
19) Consult Wikipedia
20) You also have the usual iPod resources which I am not using (preferring instead to continue using my iphone for those)
There’s a truckload of apps on site: Most iphone apps work on the iPad in a small window, and some of them translate reasonably well to a 2x scaling. Most don’t. I use Stanza as my reader of choice (iBooks is pretty but theres not much there yet) and the scaling up of Stanza was pretty hideous. So, enter the Spirit jailbreak and an application on Cydia (free) called Fullforce. All it does is what the developer could do if they wanted to, but Amazon owns Lexcycle now, so Stanza wont be liekly to be developed any further. I’ll still use it as long as I have sources. Fullforced Stanza gives a good reading experience, glad I did the jailbreak.
OK thats it for now.
