Apple :: Ipad - Possible To Transfer Pdf Or Powerpoint Files
May 19, 2010
is it possible to transfer pdf or powerpoint files from your computer to the ipad and then use the ipad to read them. By pdf files i mean like school syllabi, research papers, etc. As a student, I am looking for an alternate to using my laptop to read such material, and if the ipad fits these needs, I would like to purchase one.
I have a 250Gb Maxtor Harddrive which is 2.5" and formatted as FAT32 (so I'm able to use it on my Mac and work PC), I have roughly 100Gb worth of research documents on there already which I constantly update every fortnight. Just recently I tried to copy some video files onto the harddrive but it doesn't seem to work?
A few problems, it wouldn't copy as the little box always said 'preparing to copy' but never did anything so I kept restarting my Macbook untill it finally would copy and now it has copied over but I don't see the files on the harddrive?
I picked up a 320 GB HDD at walmart. It is USB which I know will work fine. What format does it have to be formatted in so I can copy the files from the mac running Leopard to a Windows machine running Vista?
I just bought an apple Time Capsule and started using it last night, router and switch works great, but can I use that as an external harddrive, because I tried to transfer files from my laptop to time capsule but it always gives me errors saying that the device is disconnected and whatnot. Anyone got any words on how to use it as an external harddrive freely? By the way, I use it on my Windows 7.
I transferred some embroidery designs from old XP onto a USB jump drive. When I download them to the Acer windows 8.1Â they seem to disappear. I get the little bar window that shows them downloading so I know they must be somewhere! Where do they go? I indicated to put them in "My documents" but they are not there or in the "downloads" section....
i did my presentation on my mac , copied it to my HP to use the HDMI , went to university to do my presentation and BAM , mac powerpoint slide transitions not working on powerpoint for window :S , what the heck so i am stuck with no transitions between slides , any ideas how could i steal/get/download mac powerpoint transitions to make them work on windows , i really like the cube effect on the mac side.
I am making a 10 minute or so powerpoint presentation that will include pictures, music, video, and sound effects in Office mac 2008, on my macbook.
Once I am finished, I will save it onto a USB key. Lets say I now bring the USB key and open the powerpoint in the lecture hall at my school, will the videos and sound effects still work? I know that the pictures will, but not sure about other media content like video and sound effects.
Would it be better to do this in Office 2007 in Windows?
I am planning to pick up an iPad 3G this weekend but before I do I wanted to see if there are any issues with it when using it via 3G?
I have already read where AT&T is blocking some content via 3G telling users to use a wireless connection instead and in other areas, the video quality is degraded purposely I assume to use less bandwidth.
Hey all hope you are fine I just bought an iPad 64GB Wi-Fi 3 days ago and wanted to write a review about it. Before i start,let me say that its the first Apple device that i bought(I have worked with a 27" iMac,iPod touch but I have never owned any Apple devices until now). So let's get started
I was going to do an unboxing and take lots of funky pictures, but honestly, I decided not to do so because of the myriad of images/unboxings already out there.
So, without further ado, my iPad review, sans pictures, funkiness.
It's somehow a lot bigger and heavier than you'd expect. It's *only* 1.5 lbs, but somehow it feels like a lot more. I'd be lying if I said that reading on this thing for any large amount of time would not be a fun thing. I'm a Kindle 2 fan, so this is a really big change in terms of weight...
The screen is gorgeous and large, and wonderfully bright, though it's definitely a missed opportunity not being able to change the brightness at a moment's notice. We shouldn't have to exit the application we're running to go into Settings, and then another menu... to have to do this. It's about time Apple implemented what Jailbreakers all over the world have been using on their iPhones/iPod touch devices: SBSettings. A quick swipe in the menu bar brings up shortcuts to wifi on/of, BT on/off, brightness bar etc......
I have looked at the iPad a little closer and am starting to lean that way. I am very undecided. To some, $500 isn't a lot of money, but to me it is a huge chunk of change. That is why I am having a hard time deciding on a netbook or iPad. LOL. I will likely get one or the other, but whichever decision I make I am stuck with for the near future.
The iPad looks tempting the more I look at it and think about it, especially with me being so submersed in the Apple world already (iPhone, iPod, Macbook, etc.). But $500 for 16GB is a little pricey. I also know by the history of Apple, the next gen will be lower in price/capacity. Likely the $500 will be 32 GB model.
Another thing is I would like to actually see the iPad running iPhone apps to see how they scale. The lack of flash is a real bummer too! At least there is a YouTube app. I'm not a huge reader of print (usually get my news and info from the web) so the eReader part of the iPad doesn't sway me either way, however, you've got to suspect that tons of media companies will want their magazine or newspaper on the iPad. Has anyone seen the Wired App for tablets (which will likely come to iPad). Also check out MLB's app for iPad...................
do you think it's a good idea to get an iPad for things you would do on a PC or a MAC? I mean, would you get an iPad instead of a PC or a MAC as in to do the things they would be doing for you? and what do you think of the iPad? what would you use it for?
"Yeah, it's something that we're looking at," said Microsoft's Mike Tedesco, who is the Senior Product Manager for WindowsBU. "Obviously the announcement (of the iPad) is really fresh and there's nothing to announce or nothing that I can talk to you about today.
Another possible positive reason in getting an iPad.
My buddy working as a Sys Admin at a local Community College District just got another buying point in getting the iPad implemented at his workplace.
my family are looking to chip in together to get my mom an e-reader for her birthday. Then we thought we'd look at the iPad. It's twice the cost, but it seems to do so much more. However, if we're gonna spend the money, I know she'd like to be able to watch Hulu shows and YouTube stuff.
In another post here someone mentioned that the iPad WILL play flash, although the Apple rep I talked to said it will not. If you have to do anything special or jump through hoops to make it work, then I'm not interested, but what is the case then and how do you make it work if at all?
I have an current 3rdgen ipod touch 3G, that's beginning to wear over time, and wondering is an ipad worth upgrading to, or just send it to apple to get it fixed. If so, are there any suggestions in particular whether which model I should also get? I live in Canada and the ipad isn't fully out yet, but there have been thousands, literally thousands of ipad listings on ebay, thats the basic 16gb wifi model, selling for 600 bucks and more. So is this overpaying really necessary?
I really want an ipad but i don't know if its worth it if i already have an ipod touch, because imo its just a bigger ipod touch, i mean not really, but it can do anything the ipod touch can, and vice versa.
It may have only been on the shelves in the US for a few weeks but the Apple iPad has already been hit with a virus.
BitDefender has reported that it has found malware links are being sent to iPad users which disguise themselves as an iTunes update.
The malicious link comes in an email, explaining that if you update your iTunes you will be given "…best performance, newer features and security".
Once clicked, any sensitive data stored on the users' iPad may be used for exploitation.
BitDefender said about the virus in a release: "Identified by BitDefender as Backdoor.Bifrose.AADY, the piece of malicious code inadvertently downloaded injects itself into the explorer.exe process and opens up a backdoor that allows unauthorised access to and control over the affected system.
"Moreover, Backdoor.Bifrose.AADY attempts to read the keys and serial numbers of the various softwareinstalled on the affected computer, while also logging the passwords to the victim's ICQ, Messenger, POP3 mail accounts, and protected storage."
The dodgy link is primed for the iPad as it seems that Mac users are unaffected by the link.
The Apple iPad has a delayed UK release date of 'May' – hopefully without a virus.
I'm getting a new computer. My old one is at my parents house and has my entire iTunes library on it. I know I can't just plug my ipod into a new computer and upload the songs onto it, but I'm sure there's a way to transfer the library from my old computer to my new one.
How exactly can I do that? I assume it has something to do with an external hard drive, but I'm not sure.
way to transfer messages from mac mail to Outlook 07 other than using an Imap account or setting up an Imap server plugin in outlook? I have to move ALOT of machines over and all have thousands of e-mails.
