Check out Kyteflier's post on why you need a computer if you use an iPad. She convinced me that I needed to back up my Pad to iTunes.Looking good, and reminds me that I have a question you folks might be able to help with (if it's okay to add an iPad-related question here...). If you've got a camera and an iPad but no computer, how do you get the photos onto the iPad for processing? My uncle wants me to give him some tech advice for that situation, I guess I need to find out what kind of camera he has and whether it has wi-fi built in?
To get your pictures onto an iPad, you need an Apple Camera Connect Kit. It's an approximately $30 dollar accessory. You slip your SD card into the dongle, and insert that into the I/O port on the iPad. The transfer then becomes almost automatic.
