re: Stuff I like to do
1. apparently printing is coming. but why waste the paper? just take the iPad with you and they could scan the barcode straight off the email on the screen, surely?
2. get yourself Handbrake (or similar) to convert those individual xvid files in a directory somewhere on your hard-drive, then use an Automator script to tag them with all the ID3 tags you need and load them in iTunes where it'll group them all nicely by show and by season with funky mini covers to speed your browsing. set up iTunes to sync only the oldest unwatched ones and then, each time you hook up the iPad, it'll remove the ones you've watched and load new ones. if you watch them on your iPhone too, it'll keep track of which ones you've watched and to where each time you sync each device.
3. get the camera connection kit and you can either browse the flash card directly, or hook the camera up via usb and do it that way. import the images and they're ready to show off in a sildeshow within the Photo app, or build into a presentation with Keynote, drop into an email or letter you're writing in Pages, etc etc
4. i'll give you this one. the iPad is not a recommended piece of kit for freetards. at least, not unless you jailbreak it and install some 3rd party homebrew s/w. if you spent two seconds googling you'd find some. Torrentula is one. surely with the iPad's file storage being easier to access by different apps than it is on the iPhone it's only a matter of time before some piece of homebrew will get the torrent address, download and unrar the files for you and pass them to a media player.
5. Eliminate Pro is a pretty good multiplayer FPS. I hear NOVA is quite awesome too. there will be more on the way soon
6. you download them on your pc/laptop, you drop them into iTunes, and then the next time you hook up the iPad, it'll sync them over for you. it's not very complicated or difficult. if for some reason they won't display in the default ebook app, get something like Stanza for the iPad and that'll read anything. and it's exactly the same process to load the files onto it.
7. you tag mp3s and then you delete them? you have nothing else better to do with your day? surely you're best bet would be to leave a script running to do all that for you on your desktop/laptop while you are outside enjoy the summer weather with a portable tablet device, listening to your much-tagged mp3s or watching your pirated pr0n
anything else i can help you with?
