A couple small complaints about the iPad 2
Over all, I love it. I love how it displays pictures, love the user interface, and lots more stuff. It's a great little gadget and fun to play with and use.
I have some tiny issues though.
~ Such a short charging cable! It's a full foot or so shorter than the average cell phone wall charger. It makes usage during wall charging a bit difficult. I had that same issue with the first generation iPhone I had for a few months. It was impossible to talk and charge at the same time. I can understand why it's so short, as it's easier to deal with a short usb cable than a long one when you plug it into the computer. Does apple make a charging cable as long as a standard cellphone wall charger cable? I don't care if it's usb or not. A dedicated wall charger that's long enough to allow for easy usage during charging is ok by me.
~Trying to select between words either to add or delete something in a sentence I just typed up. I'm making due with zooming way in to select what I want to select then zooming back out so I can easier read what I type as I type it. Given this is a very tiny complaint, but is there a better way to do this?
The wall charger cable issue is pretty important to me, as I like to be able to use and charge at the same time if I want to. I don't do it all the time, but I like having the option.

Buy a replacement (longer) sync/charge cable. That will solve your first issue.
The second issue is pretty much dependent on where you're typing. Is it a website, an app? Either way, you may get better results by using landscape, which automatically makes things larger.

Maybe I'm too used to using my HTC EVO 4G and the fact there are cursor/arrow keys so that you can move around in your text?! I SO wish that Apple would improve their standard keyboard (especially since they won't allow anyone else to make the software to overwrite it)... I have seen improved keyboards in apps, but then I would have to open that app everytime I want to type, and then copy/paste into Facebook, or even in my mail...
Is it just me and I'm doing something wrong or are other folks having this issue as well?!?!

I bet your first use of the Evo had a similar learning curve, mine drove me crazy for the first few days.
