iPad: The Unboxing
It is important to take EVERYTHING out of the box. I keep the box until I am sure I like the product. I think it was easy to miss the envelope sleeve. I am wondering how many people just went to find their iPad box to make sure all items were removed.
I removed the plastic covering the screen, assembled the charger and plugged it in to the electrical socket. (I have owned several iPods. Not all were charged when I got them. So even though the directions didn't say so, I plugged it in anyway)
While this was happening, I went up to my desktop computer, launched iTunes and checked to make sure it was up-to-date. I then closed iTunes. iTunes MUST be up-to-date or you will be sorry.
The iPad was mostly charged so I unplugged it. The screen said to plug it in to iTunes so I did and followed the prompts to synch, add the apps I had from my iPod touch.
Then, I ordered the case and the cocoon grid-it that I had my eye on. Both orders have now arrived.
