    DH won an Apple Touch Screen IPad. Honestly we don't know how to use it or what to do with it. Thinking of selling or giving to GS but he is only 10. Any opinions?

    You can read the Quilting Board, download books, watch Netflix movies, email your friends, surf for new quilting patterns, websites, and links, download digital magazines: in short, it can replace your computer, plus it's portable and easy to read in bed!

    I love my iPad. I'm using it now, but it did take a bit to get used to. I have a few games on here which the kids and I play, plus I do facebook and browse the Internet. Don't like it for books, but that's only because I like to read paper books, if ya know what I mean!!

    Try the suggestions above. But you do need wi-fi. Don't know if you have that.

    My grandson who is 5 uses his dad's ipad more than his dad does. He plays games Angry Birds and PacMan) on it, but his favorite thing is google earth. He likes to find our houses, places he's been (Disney World) and see the pic from "above". :-D :-D

    I love my iPad!!! It is so much faster than waiting for my laptop to boot up! I love to play solitaire on it and read books.

    I am waiting for my son (IT in Seattle) to call tonight before we make any decision. His GF says she doesn't think it has a usb port, C or D drive. We have a modem. We wouldn't need it for music or games (80 and 75) and she thinks Dan (10 yr. old GS) isn't ready for that much. He and parents currently share an IPod. If we sell it, I would have the $'s to buy the new sewing machine I want. ..Janome DC5100. If our IT son thinks Dan can handle the IPad we may give it to him....I'll let you know. Thanks for all the input.

    Your GS will know exactly what to do with it (smile). What a wonderful gift.

    You will love it if you will take the time to learn how. They are lots of fun. You need WiFi though.

    One of my friends bought one for his 2 year old son, who refers to it as his computer. It's amazing what he can do with it!

    My IT son doesn't think it is a good idea to give Dan the IPad. He doesn't have ADHD but exhibits the symptoms. Easily distracted,impulsive and opposition defiance behavior. There is an Ipod in the house so he does have something to play gmes and listen to music on. So we have decided to offer it for sale. Perhaps we will get Dan another game or app for the Ipod. DH also needs a $1500. crown so the extra $'s will help. Maybe I can still get the new sewing machine too. Thanks for interest and all the input/suggestion. eos
