e-ink devices are not backlit like lcd or led screens so it's not straining the eyes. it's like looking at a regular paper page.

Email question : I have hotmail and work outlook configured to my iphone, can i also set up the same thing to ipad and run it in tandem with the iphone ? How does it work, do you get duplicates of emails to both phone and pad ?

also got the Djay app up and running, also bought the pre - cuing adaptor, works really well, going to put some mixes together.

Any good places for free dance mp3's ? Ive tried zippyshare, seems ok, but cant find some tracks.

If by Outlook you mean an Exchange/Activesync account then everything will be synced on both devices. I.e. if you read an e-mail on your iPhone it will appear as read on the iPad and vice versa. Hotmail mails will download to both devices but no changes will be reconciled. If you have read a Hotmail e-mail on one device, it will be downloaded to your other device as read (as that's how it appears on the Hotmail server)

Anyone skinned theirs? I'm thinking of Power Support shield on the front and Wrapsol on the back cos I heard it scratches easily.

I don't suppose anyone could recommend me a nice leather sleeve case for my ipad2, it will preferably need to accommodate the ipad 2 itself and a smart cover?

I'm thinking something like these ideally, but in black to match my ipad and smart cover…

seems like fukers can't help with jailbreaking ipad issues..

anyone using ipad as a phone here? is calling using VoIP the only way? how i wish some genius out there can figure out a way to copy that "Phone" app in iphone to ipad.
was looking at one of the app that allows us to use ipad as a phone, called tru phone. anyone using that? if i purchased a tru number, does it means ppl can call you by the tru number, and you will be answering calls on your ipad?
