ah. ya, unlocking void the warranty. jailbreaking shouldnt be an issue.. but we need to wait for the latest version of the jailbreak program to update with the latest iOS right, just like iphone? sorry new user of ipad… current user of iphone, but never jailbreak my iphone, since i use it mainly for call only.

tried to update to 4.3 yesterday via itunes installed in my work laptop. Got to the inatall and then as it was about to finish work laptop asked me for an admin pass word or something. Naturally i dont know this, so the upgrade crashed but the ipad is in limbo and i cant restore factory seetings either. So i have a dead ipad. FUUUUU.

apointment at genius bar tomorrow at 1 though, hoping they can fix me up.

You need to do a reset with the holding the power and home button thing. Can't explain at the moment typing this on my mobile but someone should know what I mean

some believe a light coloured bezel will impede the viewing experience, the reason why most tellys and monitors are black or dark in colour, personally I can see how it can be a distraction.

true about the muti-touch on a MacBook Pro, can't really use another notebook without getting annoyed about using a crap trackpad.

never said it's a killer reason to drop everything to run down the road and cop one but it's 'another' reason amongst the many others.

my 1210's are long gone, but im going to get this. Does anyone know what sort of splitter i need to get pre cuing to work ? (there is a description and diagram down the page of the link) A google search has bought up far too many variables, this is cheap on the bay :

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/1-4-Jack-6-35mm-STEREO-PLUG-2-MONO-Sockets-SPLITTER-/360179886720?pt=UK_Computing_CablesConnectors_RL&hash;=item53dc64ea80

or

link not working, i guess this one ^

If anyone knows a cheaper alternative, let me know. Some of the youtube clips look decent. could be the way forward in terms of Dj'ing.

that does look like it could be fun, damn want an iPad now!

looking at the website it would be probably be best to grab what they [url=http://stores.ebay.co.uk/yumatron/DJ-App-Zubehor-/_i.html?_fsub=1990084016&__utma=1.1850538029.1300481093.1300481093.1300481093.1&__utmb=1.3.9.1300481098696&__utmc=1&__utmx=-&__utmz=1.1300481093.1.1.utmcsr=fuk.co.uk|utmccn=(referral)|utmcmd=referral|utmcct=/threads/apple_ipad&__utmv=-&__utmk=35977248 a bit more pricy but at just over 12 quid for the cable it isn't too bad.

Well you need a computer to really use an ipad, eg syncing music, apps, films etc, unless you are just planning on downloading everything through itunes?

you can but it is not a computer, its purpose is to play films, music and apps that are downloaded on another PC, there is no file system as such you directly access (eg no finder"

itunes is the standard interface for "file transfer" on and off the device.

it is possible with apps like this:

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/download-manager-lite/id322875558?mt=8#

basically creates a file system access, allows downloading, saving to a main pc.
