“Intuitive”. Another word the Appholes seem to have lost interest in.
These instructions apply to the following iPad models:
a.. Original iPad
b.. iPad 2
Before you begin setting up your iPad, make sure you have an iTunes account. You'll need this to register your iPad, buy music or movies from the iTunes Store, and to get the apps that will make the iPad so much fun. If you don't already have one, learn how to set up an iTunes account.
Make sure you've got the latest version of iTunes installed, too.
Once you've got your iTunes account, begin setting up your iPad by unboxing it and locating the sync cable. Plug the sync cable into the dock connector at the bottom of the iPad and plug the USB end of the cable into your computer.
When you plug this in, iTunes will launch and the set up process will begin.
The next step in setting up your iPad is to choose whether to register your iPad now or later. You don't absolutely have to register it, but it may make a few things - like getting tech support - easier. So, unless you're very vigilant about your privacy and not sharing contact information, I'd agree to register.
Before you can get very far in setting up your iPad, you'll need to agree to the legal terms that Apple provides with the iPad. If you don't agree, you're not going to be able to use the device, so you ought to agree.
Now you're into the meat of setting up your iPad. On this screen, log into your iTunes account (you did create one back in Step One if you didn't already have one, right?).
On this screen, enter your contact information as part of the registration process.
At this stage, Apple gives you the option to set up Find My iPad, a free service that lets you locate a lost or stolen iPhone over the Internet via GPS. You can set it up now or, if you prefer, do so later.
At this point, you can choose to set up your iPad as a completely new device or, if you've had an iPhone or iPod touch, you can use a backup of that device's settings on the iPad. If you choose to restore from backup, you can always change settings later
If you choose to set the iPad up as a new device, your next screen will be this one, where you can give your iPad a name and make some basics settings choices. Here you can choose to automatically sync songs, photos, or apps to the iPad. You'll also be able to modify those settings - with greater precision - in the next step.
Finally, the good stuff. At this stage, you can decide what music, movies, apps, and other content you want to sync from your computer to the iPad. To learn how to sync particular types of content to the iPad, read these articles:
a.. Syncing music to iPad
b.. Syncing movies to iPad
c.. Syncing apps to iPad
d.. Syncing photos to iPad
When you're done changing these settings, click the "Apply" button in the bottom right of iTunes to save the changes and sync the content.
With your content synced from your computer to the iPad, you're done with the set up. Eject the iPad from the tray in the left-hand side of iTunes either by clicking the Eject button or right clicking the iPad icon and selecting Eject. With that, you're ready to enjoy your iPad!
All of this seems like something a computer should be able to do
without needing another computer. How can it be a computer if it needs
a real computer to use said computer?
So now you're agreeing that redjak's suggestion of either ripping your
own DVD files or having to stream from your own media server is stupid
compared to either renting from iTunes on the device or just clicking
You said you can you buy movies (mistake 1, you don't buy, u rent)
You can buy or rent.
your iPad (mistake 2, you don't own one). So whether the content is
If I just want something to watch on the go, why would I want to
drive down to the local RedBox, rip the DVD and then have to leave my
computer on to stream from it? Of course to do that you have to
configure your router and hope the paltry upload speed of most dsl and
cable connections are fast enough.
Or you have to go through the additional trouble of converting your
movie to a format the Xoom can use.
I on the other hand, pull out my phone, tap on iTunes and choose rent
or buy. Alternatively, I just click on Hulu or Netflix and stream
movies and tv shows.
or streamed doesn't matter, the Xoom owner will ALWAYS have
better options than you,
How so? I can buy or rent movies from ITunes on my iPhone, stream
movies with Netflix, watch my own ripped movies, stream movies from my
computer, or play divx movies with CinePlex.
because you just pay lip service to Apple.
I have two iPod touches and an iPhone. How many android devices do
You don't own an iPad. Which is pretty damn weird considering the
amount of time you spend advocating it. If it's so awesome you'd have
scraped together enough cash to buy the $500 piece of cheap ass
And this coming from someone who supposedly owns an *HTC*. Do you own
