@wastingtimewithforums: Seems that what's killing the guy is running a new OS without reading anything about how to use it.
My wife recently brought an iPad home from then school where she works -- the staff use them for taking 'observation' notes about the kids. Neither of us had used an iPad before and we did just what this guy is doing -- we went in blind and tried to figure it out. Neither of us lasted 20 minutes, although we did manage to take photos and notes eventually. Figuring out how to delete our notes was particular fun -- one add needed a right-swipe over an item to show the 'delete' button, while another automatically shows the delete option; right-swipe to delete -- is that an iPad thing?
There is no such thing as an 'intuitive' OS anymore - they're ALL to complex for that now, you HAVE to read up on the basics of how to use them.
