From the iPod screen, you can enlarge the artwork by pinching out. You can return the artwork to its normal size by pinching in.

Kinda cool.

In Keynote while playing a slide show (full screen) if you tap and hold for a few seconds you get a laser pointer. This is great if you're playing the slides on a projector.

The wallpaper trick doesn't seem to work with square images.

Still awaiting delivery of my iPad, but been using an iPhone for ages. The default setting for a double click of the home button is favorites for quick phone calls. What does it do on the iPad? On iPhone, triple clicking takes you to the spotlight-like search feature.

Wow than didn't know that, now I gotta figure out how to scroll down

Double click brings up the small music controls if you have music playing.

Triple click brings you to search.

In safari, there's no need to type .com for most sites.

For example, just type in flickr and the top bar and click go, and it'll automatically fill in .com, regardless of if you have visited the site before or not.

Oh dear some people really don't have anything better to do.

It's pedantic, pompous, pathetic and pointless to endlessly correct people's spelling and grammar on this forum do people not take a moment to think that other forum users might not have such a great grasp of the English language?
