Last night it took 8 hours to go from 3% to 90%... Last week it took over five hours to charge from 10% to 80% - all using the power adapter, not a PC. Would it be quicker if I switched the iPad off altogether when charging? Any ideas? Cheers AlecLondon...|ipad-2-soooo-long-charge

I have several books in iBooks and they work great. I also have the ESV bible (4000+ pages) and it takes a long time (5 or more seconds) to show the highlight/notes menu when double tapping a word on certain pages and I cannot figure out why. The pages are in the 800s and some have highlight and so...|ibooks-book-4000-pages-long-time-show-highlight-menu-ipad

I am planning a long vacation and taking my laptop but it is my home computer that my new iPad and ipod touch are synced too. I know i can backup to the cloud over wifi but how can i do things like delete photo albums instead of having to manually delete pictures one by one on the iPad. Is there any way also to add my pictures to the iPad other than through email. i am assuming that i can't just install itunes on the laptop and sync to that. I have been told that i always have to sync to my original synced home computer for that....|planning-long-vacation-laptop-home-computer-ipad-ipod-touch-synced

I preordered a book that seems to have gotten paused in download. I go to "purchased" in store and see the book with a download button next to it but when I hit the download button, I get a message saying that I have already purchased the book and that I should go to purchases and hit download. Weird and vicious circle. How can I fix this or get my money back for the book and start over?...|preordered-book-initiated-download-paused-reason-pause-purchased-section-store

I will be in Mexico for several months and somewhere heard or read that from a Mexican (or more specifically a non-U.S.) ISP, I will not be able to download apps or anything else. Is this true? I will be there long enough that I anticipate wanting to download books and other apps, for starters, while I am there. Should I try to do all this before I leave the States? What I really want to hear is that this would be idiotic of Apple to have this restriction, and of course there is no such restriction! MacBook Pro Mac OS X (10.4.10) also have an iPad...|ipad-mexico
