Yeah you can download torrents if your ipad is jailbroken through an app called iTransmission you simply and copy and paste the link of the torrent download.

If you use usenet you can use NZBphone

It depends, if you're on the newest iOS 6 firmware at the moment its tethered - as they've not been able to get around that yet (So if you shut it down, you have to connect it to your computer to get it back on) its kind of straight forward.

If you're on iOS 5 life's easier.

But overall yeah Jailbreaking is better in my opinion. More to offer than standard.

Dropped my iPad and now there's a hairline crack on the screen at the bottom of the screen and down to the home button - still works fine but how much are Apple gonna charge for it to get fixed/what have people said to get it sorted for free?

Anyone use the Flipboard app? Using it now and it is everything in one app. Your social networks, news plus individual categories such as fashion, tech and sports. Great app.

Is there a cover/bag for the 4 like the CDG one, that doesn't cost a fortune?

Flipboard is a great app, perfect for what I use it for, would recommend it.

I've downloaded some movies in m4v format, they play perfect on my pc but when I transfer them to the ipad and play the sound doesn't sync with the picture. Anybody know why?

Downloaded films I bought from itunes work fine.

did you try avplayer hd?

the 128gb is a shoe in so when the next gen is released it'll replace the 64gb price point, the 64gb the 32gb, and the 32gb the 16gb to come across as good value.
