Apple is also giving anyone who bought an iPad 1 in the last 2 weeks, a $100 back or a full refund. Think thats cool for them to do, although they prob know 99% of people will just spend that money on apple products

I'm still considering the Ipad2-flash isn't that big of a deal to me really but since Motorola Xoom comes with it and a micro-sd slot, i really don't have to do without it
So Apple awhile ago introduce Office for MAC.

Also, Intel based processes for MAC.

Basically, on my 4 year old MBP, I have Windows XP loaded on it, haven't booted to Windows in 3.5 years.

Microsoft also released a mac version of remote desktop for those who use terminal servers at work.

Has anyone used any version of remote desktop apps on their ipad? Im interested to see if I can get some of the lawyers on my firm to use it on their ipad, but I don't know how well it will run.

Yep, I have used the Iphone version but it's too small to use for doing anything for me. But it was handy for me to reboot a server with my Iphone when I was on the road.

good luck. the head of IT for my firm is a major apple phag. if it was his choice he'd switch every last piece of equipment over that's how much he loathes PC.

Problem is my firm just spent major $$$ on developing our own case management software over the last 4 years from the ground up. It was all developed with only PC in mind much to his dismay. Try to use it on an apple and it goes insane. I dont think they are too far from getting it to the point of selling it to other firms if they want to.

plus lawyers are the dumbest smart people I know, you should know that too.....

Yeah, im the opposite, Im really not a mac fan. I just wanted to know if I could give some of them that use Ipads the option, maybe it will keep them out of the office lol

We are looking to upgrade our case management software and they are thinking of paying someone to design our own also, but I doubt they will ever pull the trigger on it. We use some OLD shit, let me tell you.

Yes I know they are the dumbest smart people, very much so. The other day I got a text from one of the head lawyers "we have 3 lawyers here trying to figure out how to get sound on this computer, we shouldn't have these problems" .. oh the irony.

You don't get GPS without the 3G chip... although you'll need an app like Navigon since without a data plan, Google can't download the maps.

This is the only reason i need a 3g as my jail broken iPhone works as the hotspot.

There is an issue with the way the flash reflects off the white hat makes the
pictures look like crap, and more importantly the light reflects in a way that make the proximity sensor even worse.

Wait, maybe I should buy an Ipad to use as a wireless remote for my apple tv, and then I can get an iphone to control my ipad and use it as a media server. Woahhhhhhh. Maybe I can control all of them wirelessly through my macbook.

i don't think you really have tried a jailbreak because there is a ton of things it's capable of doing besides ringtones. anyway, back on topic..
