    Default Which iTunes account should I use to activate my iPad?

    I just bought a new iPad and the first thing I need to do is activate it. My wife has an iTunes account (for her iTouch) and I have an iTunes account for my Mac. My wife and I are going to be both using the iPad, so which account should I use to activate it with? Does it matter? Can I easily change the account later? What about the installed apps?

    You can use both. Since your wife probably bought iOS apps on her account to use on her iPod Touch, I'd start with that one. You couldn't have purchased apps on the account you only used on a Mac, but you'll want to use it later if you purchased iTunes music or video.
