Bleach - Negative Creep Cool

Ipad2 is definately a great improvement, using my missus for browsing and my 1st gen for reading but really impressed with the new iteration.

quality is great, volume is ok, very good for its size, on full blast its perfect, just loud enough (like it loud before going out etc) Will work well with Ipad Djay and with my guitar run through the ipad, got no need for big guitar amp now, so put that on ebay. Its rechargable battery, like 8 hours too, plus connects to anything with bluetooth.

Get iswifter from the app store, upgrade to the premium version for a couple of quid, go to icefilms and fill your boots.

Works a treat on the 2nd gen, not tried it on my 1st

I was proper won over by the white one in the apple store, had my wallet naively out and was ready to pay, and then was told they were sold out and could be weeks down the line.

Probably won't bother now. The excitements gone.

thinking of buying an ipad2, not 100% sure though as for my needs i should reaally save up for a macbook. basically i'm looking for a portable device which is good for internet browsing and doing the stuff i generally do on the internet.

shit i do on the internet:

- general browsing
- download music/ films (music blogs, standard piracy)
- streaming music


questions:

- the biggest negative i can see with the ipad is the fact that i can't manage all my files and downloads directly within the device ie. adding downloaded songs direct to the iPod app. feel totally tethered to my computer as i'd have to download shit through downloader app - upload to pc - add to iTunes - sync device. such a long winded process. does jailbreaking offer a way around this issue?

- can i download files through safari yet or must i use a download app?

- can i add files to the drop box app with an iPad or am i still stuck with photos only

- can i stream music onto my stereo system (amp, speakers) easily - (airport express thing offer this sort of functionality?) will all apps stream to the stereo eg streamed music through safari, or vlc app etc?

i should really save up for a macbook shouldn't i…?

plug your ipad into my Audioengine A5's and have yourself a cracking hifi system.
