    I just ordered one from the Apple Store and was wondering what peoples experience with it has been like. One thing I didn't quite understand is how it's powered, is it powered by USB or does it use it's own power pack? Thanks in advance! :apple:

    it's powered by the iPad and I believe you can plug in your cord and connect it to the wall or computer. I've only played with it on my iPad at the Apple store, it's pretty cool!

    I bought a cord extender so I could use it in the landscape mode. Otherwise, you're stuck with portrait only, unless that's the only position you'll need it. Wireless keyboard is probably in my future.

    Me too, I use an Apple BT keyboard. I was not sure if in portrait mode the mechanical stress for the port connector is too high. Plus no landscape which I like for email and mind mapping or Citrix
