    [quote user="HardwareGeek"]I have not added any music to it, because in order to do so I have to allow iTunes to delete everything that was on it when she gave it to me[/quote]You can copy the music to your computer (using iTunes, of course) then let iTunes manage this iPad (this will clean it), and copy the music back.

  • Re: Secure webmail

    [quote user="Planar"]That's fine for symmetric crypto, but to make a good public/private key pair you need a lot of entropy.
