    Can you return it to the store??

    Could you let me know asap? Since i wanted to try out some apps to decide to keep it or not. So far, i can't do anything, no java, no flash, etc etc

    Yes, if and only if, you restore it to factory state after testing.

    Hook ur iPad up to iTunes and press restore. That will put it back to factory settings,and it will erase all media and settings. So back up ur stuff if u plan on getting a new iPad.

    No sorry, Hulu is flash based and they have announced no plans for HTML5 any time soon.

    LOL! That was one of my favorite things to do back in the day when I lived in Chicago. I'd walk past a bum who would ask "Hey buddy, got a quarter?" and the only difference between me and him was I'd bathed a little more recently so I'd answer "A quarter of what?". Without exception they would stop to think about it and I kept walking. Good times. :D

    Not worth jailbreak yet. I did mine last week and was bored in 10 min and restored. Everything is for the iPhone and background apps are sloppy. It's only worth it if there is a specific thing YOU want to do and can't and is in dire need.

    True. Jailbreaking has never really appealed to me because I always jump on the latest firmware updates right away and don't want to sync and resync my device contents with every restore. But lately there's one feature that made me wanna give it a spin, although I haven't yet. It's the mounting of external drives using the camera connection kit. But since my 64gb is not even halfway yet, I'll just put that in the backburner. We'll see if I'll give in after the 4.0 OS update this fall.

    Yes there is a jailbreak app called ihulu but it's very limited you can get south park, familyguy, the simpsons, and mondomini shows. It does work well for those mentioned. You can stream or download but the episodes are numbered instead of named, and they all get jumbled into the same folder when downloading. So finding the one you want to watch is a bother.

    Ya, I did the same thing. I jailbroke it and it was cool to be able to run apps in the background, but it was so buggy and apps were crashing constantly and I was getting other weird stuff happening. I restored it shortly thereafter. I think I can wait until the official multitasking comes out.

    The backgrounding isn't sloppy. Apparently setting it up is too complicated for you two.
