Hey! Did you get a new iPad for Christmas? Apple’s iPad tablet computer was undoubtedly this year’s hottest “toy”. James Cordwell, an analyst at Atlantic Securities, expected Apple to sell six million iPads this quarter, half of them here in the U.S.
The iPad is a great gadget, but Apple is known for not including manuals with their products. Aside from the basic “finger tips” leaflet that comes with most “i” devices, information no how to actually use the product is scarce.
To fill the need for some instruction on using the iPad, J.D. Biersdorfer has authored iPad: The Missing Manual.
As Michael Kleper of The Kleper Report on Digital Publishing says, “Here is the book that both shows and tells how to accomplish the activities that will open all of the capabilities, of all of the current iPad models.”
In the following video, J.D. shares some productivity tips that you can use with your iPad.
Besides iPad: The Missing Manual, J.D. also wrote The iPod Shuffle Fan Book, and is co-author of The Internet: The Missing Manual and the second edition of Google: The Missing Manual. She has been writing the weekly computer Q&A column for the Circuits section of The New York Times since 1998.
