    Re: Ipad Apps?

    Ok Ipad users. If I buy one, will it really matter what storage capacity I get if IOS 5 will make use of the cloud? I really dont want to spend the extra dough on the 64gb version if I wont be needing to fill the drive.

    The only time I've wanted more space was downloading movies to watch while flying.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    They are typically what, 500-800mb for an HD one? Think the 16gb version would be enough for me? Or should I hit middle ground and go for 32.

    I have 6 podcasts and 3 shows (less than a season each) and music. It kills all 64 GB.

    What do you think is the best free news site? I have the basics with CNN, Fox, and also Fluent News for the variety. I liked The Daily, but not enough to pay for it.

    Will icloud help with that? It stores all itunes crap out in space from what I understand and you download as you need between devices.

    Yeah it should. With the purchased shows and movies you can just download what you need right before/when you need it.

    The music it will help also; purchased or music from wherever you got it. But it seems like most people don't really have as much music as they think.

    Pictures I'm pretty disappointed it. It's more like sync for recent pics.

    I'd get the biggest ipad that fits in your budget. You'll find a way to use it.

    K. thanks for the info.

    I will say, I am thrilled that ios 5 will allow people to activate their iphones/ipads without loading anything onto a pc. That will help me immensely at work since Im not a huge fan of itunes at work.
