Just remember that if you aren't backing your iPad up to a computer regularly, if something happens to the iPad, you lose EVERYTHING!!!

It doesn't have to back up to a Mac, you know. You can put iTunes on any PC and back up. I had my first iPad long before my first Mac.
You cannot download the ibook app or the kindle app to the ipad2. Both require the operating system of the 3rd gen ipad. I tried to no avail. It makes no sense that you can't buy books for an ipad2 but if you can I have not figured out what I'm missing.

Hmmm... I don't quite understand what's going on, because I was able to DL books onto my iPad 1 with no problem.

I'd call Apple support and ask for help.

I did that and was told I needed to upgrade operating system from 4.3 to 5.0 on iPad. That has to be done through iTunes but my mac doesn't support latest version of Itunes. What I maybe need to try is find an older version of I books to download. That might work if version 2 is available since newest one is version 3. It still will not support the kindle app. None of this may matter since I'm so disappointed with my Samsung galaxy I may buy a new iPad anyway. Thanks much.
