Syncing device to two computers
I would like to sync my iPad to my office computer but am afraid that my data will be overwritten when syncing to a second computer. I have my device synced and backed up to my home computer. Any thoughts?

If you are talking about iTunes, I do not think that it is an issue. iTunes is pretty good about distinguishing between accounts, on the one hand, and devices, on the other.
However, before you do anything, wait for a response from Alli.

Yes the device will be wiped if you try to sync. You have a couple of choices you can copy the iTunes folder from your home computer to the same location on your work computer. The folder is in My Music and should be called iTunes Music or just iTunes. When you sync it will either just sync because your ID is stored in the iTunes folder. You can also sync different things on each computer that will also work. So in iTunes if you set contacts to sync with your home PC you would uncheck it at work. I think however you want to copy the iTunes folder it will be the easier option.
