The apple iPad is almost deceptively easy to use. All you need to do is add apps and start using it. Is that what you think?

You can display your Ipad screen on a HD TV. All you need is an Apple digital AV adapter or an Apple VGA adapter depending on the kind of TV you have. This first product can be plugged into an HDMI port while the second one requires a VGA port.

Turn off your Wi-Fi when not in use. Your iPad will constantly search for Wi-Fi signals even when you don't want it to. That is, if your Wi-Fi is turned on. When you are out and about and don't need Wi-Fi, simply turn it off. It will extend your battery.
