From the beginning, even before it was released, there were the complainers, the critics, the snarky comments about the iPad. Some didn't like the name, some thought it was no more than a big iPod touch, some griped that it wouldn't replace their phone or their laptop (as though that were its function).
Now that the iPad has been out and about in some real world tests at least some of the grumbling might just be worth listening to.
Increasingly, we depend on internet access to run our lives, and when
we have guests over to our house, apartment, or workplace, normally we
either have to open our wireless network or give the guest our network
password. Either way, you open up your wireless network to security
risks. No worries--we’ll show you how to easily setup your own
guest network using either an AirPort Extreme (early 2009 model) or
another brand of router (we’ll use a Netgear).
A recent survey of new iPad owners sounding off on Twitter revealed that a whopping 26 percent were unhappy about the fact that the device couldn’t replace their iPhone. That got us thinking: What would it be like to spend a day with only the iPad?
