Entertainment On iPad : There’s been a lot of talk about the iPad (and any other iOS device) not being compatible with Adobe’s Flash, but this is actually less of a problem than you might think. For one thing, although you won’t be able to go to www.youtube.com and watch videos via the Safari web browser, there’s a dedicated YouTube application which enables you to do just that. You can watch clips, comment on them, and do pretty much everything you’d expect. Other video-sharing sites, like Vimeo, are getting on the i0S-friendly bandwagon and offer iPad-compatible versions of their videos, so you can watch those straight from your web browser.
But being entertained is much more than just passively watching something on the screen; you can also use your iPad to read the latest bestseller or enjoy a timeless classic. The two major programs that allow you to do this are Apple’s own ‘Books and Amazon’s Kindle. Both are also compatible with the iPod and iPhone so you can stop reading on the iPad and carry on with another device if you’d like. That compatibility doesn’t extend to your Mac for the ‘Books though, but it does for the Kindle. Not all titles are available In digital form yet, but there’s enough there to keep you busy for a long time.
