    Two trains leave different cities heading toward each other at different speeds. When and where do they meet?
    Train A, traveling 70 miles per hour (mph), leaves Westford heading toward Eastford, 260 miles away. At the same time Train B, traveling 60 mph, leaves Eastford heading toward Westford. When do the two trains meet? How far from each city do they meet?

    Has page reloading finally been fixed with the inclusion of tabs? Is the split screen keyboard useful or just a gimmick?

    Cheers in advance

    Split keyboard is amazing. I keep it like that all the time. It does take a few days of getting used to, but it's worth it.

    They will meet half way in 2 hours...

    Can you clear all notifications at once?

    I have to agree. I got used to it after a couple days. I like that I can move it higher or lower on the screen too. I am not a fan of using the split keyboard when my iPad is horizontal though. Feels a little weird. If I am using the split keyboard then my iPad is vertical. :)

    Waste of space - the notifications are very good - yes. But, they could put widgets there, or at least on the home screen.

    Can you now set the default web browser for those who prefer to use a 3rd party one rather than Safari ?

    Is Safari now telling websites that it's a desktop browser and not a mobile one, so you get automatically directed to mobile versions of some web sites which is annoying?

    Thanks.

    They - IMO aren't the best implementation of 'widgets'; when I think of widgets, I think of lots of small programs, of the user's choice, that can be customised to be in the lock screen and scattered around the home screen. Currently, Apple widgets can't be moved (on to the lock screen) deleted or changed; only two available and they're not available on the iPad.

    Fast. No Lag. No refreshing. Pretty good. But there's a maximum of 9 tabs - that's why I'm sticking with iCab.

    Sure, they might not (and are not) the best integration of widgets on the market. However, they are widgets nonetheless. For all we know, Apple may allow developers to create their own widgets in the future.

    If, like me, you have a smart cover with the auto-wake feature, you'll rarely see the lockscreen notifications.

    That's true, I hadn't thought of that. You can just disable the sleep/wake feature though.

    The fast, no lagging, and certainly the no refresh is sporadic at best.... Sometimes it refreshes and sometimes it doesn't...
