    I decided to borrow my iMac's keyboard to play.....it's pretty cool using both the touch screen and keyboard together. Tried to upload this pic via iPad, but when I went to manage attachments all the choose file buttons were grayed out as if the website did not recognize the HD of the iPad.

    What do keys such as option, shift, command, brightness, tab, etc do?

    Esc dismisses the autocorrect popups.
    Tab and Shift-Tab works to switch between form fields in Safari.
    Option, Shift, and the arrow keys work just as you'd expect for selecting text.

    The keyboard dock has a button to return to the home screen, as well as one to lock the device, but I can't seem to find a key or combination of keys to do either of those things on the bluetooth keyboard.

    Command-A selects all text.

    What sucks is there's no shortcut for the Home button and the arrow keys don't work for scrolling.

    I tried it once and never bothered to do it again. Too much of a hassle to type on the keyboard and scroll and touch on the iPad.
