I love my iPad and my new iPhone 4S. They have changed my life and as I embark on an overseas trip this week I feel that I have an arsenal of IT IP at my fingertips.
Lately I have been reading (a lot) about people who have lost their iPad and how it has ruined their lives because they are so dependent on it.
I concur BUT back it up! At the end of the day it is a nicely designed inanimate object with no intelligence. You are what makes it unique and work. So back up to the cloud or your PC.
If you don't back up don't complain I say.
