My new ipad2

Updated on December 18, 2016

Introducing my iPad2

I found you as well as I can now type up emails a lot easier than with the new iPad 2 rather than the other tablets or phones. You can probably also drop these onto the system via wifi easily enough though it will be easier to use the USB cable. I found you have to use iTunes to get most of the files transferred which is a bit of a pain, that is maybe until I get to investigate it further.

We only got the iPad2 today 18 november, so am trying out a lot of new stuff. Specially being I haven't used a Mac since I was in school way back in 1982. That was before they invented hard drives I recently found out. I should actually correct that statement I made before I did help a friend setup a network between Mac and pc a few years ago.

Exploring My ipad2

I usually pick up things pretty quick and read the manuals as a last resort. And yes I know there are probably quite a few bright people out there who have been using mac for a while and the following are trivial problems. And yes I know I will probably get a few people saying can I google that for you... But.

A couple of things I am finding difficult are getting the predictive text to input. I am also having trouble with going forwards and back to edit typing. With windows you use arrow keys, but for some strange reason there are none on the Mac keyboard.

Knowing you guys here at Hubages are a decent bunch I am sure you will be kind to me or at least I hope you will. as I am writing this I am finding the keyboard easier to use than the win keyboard Man I am wishing I had one of these iPads last year when my main computer went down for almost 12 months.

Whilst writing this hub I am also half sort of watching artificial intelligence AI and it was bugging me the voice of Dr Know I thought was Robin Williams. Using my now trusty iPad I t do without ir now.checked and found that indeed it was.

Another drawback I found while trying to publish this hub was I couldn't. Why? Because of some sort of adobe claim apple put restrictions in. So therefore I couldn't install the flash player that was needed to enter the text. Nor could I upload the image ps from the ipad2. But I thought I could put them in via Picassa, well I have to figure that out too. Man I love the the joys of new technology. NOT ;-)

BTW. I figured out how to insert the auto text without hitting enter then back spacing. I found you need to hit space. I suppose I should have figured it out earlier, because it is the same as open office writer. That has now saved me an awful amount of time.

So you may be able to see I am not yet ready to replace my pc but I could go pretty close with the ipad2. Specially when I am out on the road i am finding more so that I cannot do without it now.

iPad 2 Revisited

This iPad turned out to last for around 2 years before errors started to happen. So it was a good thing the battery lasted longer, for a change. About this time I had caught up with and overtook the capabilities of the pad.

Over the years despite the eccentricities and intricacies of the Apple system versus Microsoft... I have ended up sticking with iPads and in fact I have gotten 3 more. During this time I have noticed the various improvements Apple has made and I am grateful.

Due to ease of use and other great features, I am actually now looking to add another new iPad to our collection and even possibly an iPhone.

So Apple you now have me as a customer for life.

      Hi Christy thanks for the comments & thoughts. Yes I seem to be getting the hang of the iPad 2 I am though still finding daily new tricks for not only it but my windows system which I started using windows back in 1991/92. Im still a bit frustrated the iPad can't see my printer but will probably figure that out soon. Or in 20 years or so :) THANKS AGAIN talk soon

      Ausis, I like the way you have explained the iPad2 here in this hub. Have you mastered the technology yet? I see you first got in in November so you have now had a few months to master it. I hope you have!
