Oh, I can't WAIT for responses like: "You should have known..." OKay!! But, I've been tracking blogs, message boards, news, review about the iPad since it came out and have not read ONE word about how the iPad will not sync with OS X 10.4.11. I must be blind. I'm certainly a newbie. But I can NOT figure how I missed this crucial freakin' part! So, sure enough, attached the iPad to the MacBook and got "the" message: "The iPad 'iPad' cannot be used because it requires OS X 10.5 or later. And YES I searched the forums -- probably blind to that too -- saw some peripheral high-tech references to Snow Leopard downloads and a HOST of OTHER issues associated with THAT whole upgrade process... Man, I'm furious! (Mostly at me, but hey! Bought an iPod Touch 6 months ago and no problems... I just assumed... STUPID.) Alright... take a deep breath... Is there a simple step by step upgrade thread or instructions? What do I need? What's the simplest method to upgrade from OS X 10.4.11 to.. well, whatever is compatible with iPad.
