    I just won on a lottery ticket :p

    Since its extra cash I want to get something for my iPad I just bought, what should I get? Something other than skins or a case. Well unless the case is super sweet.

    Not necessarily important as the jailbreak is almost coming out soon. :D

    I'm pretty sure that a jailbreak doesn't automatically download the app store for you.

    And, if you're insinuating jailbreak = free apps via pirating, shame on you.

    Depends what do you have for your ipad already?

    If you use your ipad outside a lot and dont have a good case for it then get a good protective case that is functional like the switch easy canvas, also comes with a decent sceen protector.

    If you dont need a case then get some good apps and games and also get the av adapter.

    Apps you might want to purchase:

    Good reader
    Splash top remote
    Nba jam
    Need for speed hot pursuit
    Av player hd
    Tune in radio pro
    Puffin browser
    Skyfire browser
    Battlefield 2
    resident evil 5
    Dead space
    Call of duty

    I'm guessin a new apple tv will be out soon. So buy at your own risk.

    This.

    The best accessory for iPad is AppleTV.

    I would get either an Apple TV to do Air Play or an HDMI out cable to do mirroring.

    This is the reason why it's so damn hard to get ipad 2 jailbroken.

    As for stuff to get, I'd get a camera kit (if you need it) and HDMI adapter. AppleTV is an interesting idea, but at least on my TV, I already used up all HDMI ports. There's one on the side, but I do not want to have things permanently plugged into it, like AppleTV. Don't feel like having cable sticking out all the time.

    And expensive HDMI cables = just say NO. Get one from Meritline or Monoprice.

    Six minutes after stating you returned it and you're looking for accessories for it? That's interesting.

    Nice work detective but that sarcasm just flew right over your head.

    thanks for the suggestions on the Apple tv not a big Netflix or streaming guy though beside I have my PC hooked up my HDTV via hdmi which is what that thing does, gets stuff from computer to tv right?

    :D I see that now. Carry on.

    EDIT* To answer your question, sort of. It will also support wireless mirroring on your iPad this Fall.
