    Ha Ha...you are hooked. :lol:

    BTW...we have an iPad2 and love it. Not sure how much difference the retina display or the better camera makes, but I bet you'll be able to get the iPad2's pretty cheap now.

    We bought the iPad just months before the iPad2 was released, when a senior in the church brought me his iPad2 to set up for him I was thinking "If I'd only known!" It's ok, the wife and kids have got tons of use from the iPad.

    We picked up an Ipad2 yesterday. I am a pc guy at heart, but the wifey's work computer is a Mac and she has gone to the other side. We have been playing with both her computer and the Ipad since we got home, is there a way to use the Ipad as a remote for the Macbook?

    I have certainly thought like you before.

    If you want a tablet and don't mind something other than apple, Samsung has nice tablets and there is also the option of the nook or kindle. You can also make the nook or kindle run like a full tablet at under $200, that leaves you at least $300 for additional bike parts. :mrgreen:

    Funny you should mention that...I did have to sell a couple of bikes last summer to get the money for it.

    It was my wife's birthday present. :mrgreen:

    Bikes every time, I don't like stuff like that because my computer & phone can do everything for me so there is no need to waste more money.

    I'm not sure what type of remote control you are wanting to do, but look into these...

    Mobile Mouse = a remote control app for iOS that gives you a mousepad and keyboard over wifi.

    LetMeIn = a gotomypc type alternative that is free for basic use. This gives you a visual of the screen and control of the keyboard and mouse. This one is geared for away from the home scenarios but does work as a remote control depending on your internet connection speed.


    MyMac = a remote control client for the mac. Free version will only allow you to remote one computer.

    TIOD = a file sharing app that allows you to see a computer's shared folders and open pictures, videos, etc.

    Awesome! I hate electronics and still run Windows XP. It works just fine and is easy for an old geiser like me to use. I for one like to go out without having to worry about people bugging me on a cell phone. They can wait till I get home and check my messages. :mrgreen:

    We got the My Mac app, but the problem we have is she cannot connect the ipad to the network at her school so we something that will work via bluetooth. She is wanting to be able to control the computer and what is being displayed over the classroom projector (connected to comp with a dongle) so she can move around the room while teaching.
