    What was the first thing you looked for when you opened your iPad box? Were you like meÖ surprised and disappointed that there was no instruction manual in there? I thought it was a mistake and the Apple factory forgot to pack my slick glossy full-color instruction book.

    Appleís whole model is ďease of useĒ. The statement they tried to make was that you donít even need a manual. And, maybe thatís true if youíre just going to use your iPad as an overpriced email checker. But, itís not just a giant iPhone.

    You want to get more out of your iPad. You want to unlock itís full potential.
    But unfortunately, if no one actually shows you some of the iPadís less-obvious tricks and tips, youíll probably never discover them on your own. And, that is your iPadís one BIG flaw.

    The manual is online, where you can view it all you want - right from your iPad if necessary. And there's a whole video tutorial right on your iPad.

    Would you rather Apple kill a million trees so that the majority of users (who never read manuals) will just throw the manual away? The kinds of tips and tricks you're looking for, probably aren't in the manual anyway. That's why there's places like TiPb.

    A dumb post. Apple never includes a 50 page manual with any of their mobile products. It's usually a pamphlet with a few pages and that's it. That's a lot better than making a bunch of booklets that most users won't even read therefore wasting time, money and trees.

    And besides both the iPhone and iPad manuals can be downloaded for free in iBooks. Also there is a bookmark in safari for the iPad to know everything. Any other gripes?
