iPad Software Update OS 4.2

Most of you are going "who the hell cares about some software update on a blog about RPGs?" Well, I care, as most of my RPG reading, blogging, blog reading and such occurs on my iPad these days. ;)

The multi-tasking isn't multi-tasking like you have one your desktop, but i think it will suffice for copying and pasting for blog posts - which was a PITA under OS 3.0

The integrated mailbox is a feature I've had on my iPhone for a bit... very happy to have it now on my iPad.

The Air-Print feature, allowing one to print to a wireless printer I haven't tried yet. With any luck, I'll give it a try tonight.

Finally I can group my apps into folders. I'm a pack rat app collector, and now I have even more room for my apps. Woot!

Most importantly, my Apple Keyboard, specifically made for the iPad, wasn't always recognized by the old OS. I had to seat it and reseat it, sometimes within the same session. New OS? Seems flawless so far, but time will tell.

  1. They fix the six hour backup fiasco? That has got to be the most serious pain the arse thing I have had to deal with iPad.

  2. took about 35-40 minutes with my mac mini. Haven't backed up using my PC since the summer... i remember that never ending backup well.

    I'm not sure if the issue has been fixed on the pc side.

    just over 15 gigs used on my ipad... little music, all apps and pdfs ;)

  3. I too am taking up 15gigs on my iPad. As for doing the OS updates, I tend to make that the last thing I do before I go to bed. Painless.

  4. I mentioned to my wife, the other day, that I wanted an iPad. She gave me a rather cold, unsettling stare and said "I get one first." (shiver.)

  5. My fiancee is very happy to inherit gadgets when I upgrade to the newest. I am actuallyvencouraged at times ;)
