    Why is my iPad doing this? I have two PCs I sync with. Well, it was one and I installed iTunes on this PC and when I go to sync, it asks if I am sure I want to delete the apps I have installed. If I hit cancel, it won't sync. I made this an authorized PC, btw. 3 of 5.

    Like all iOS devices you can only sync with one machine?

    Just sync with the one PC, and turn home sharing on.

    Home sharing?? Isn't that just for music? I have not read up on it.

    No, you can do more than 1. You have to authorize them in an odd way. I did this and was able to sync w/out removing my apps.

    You can authorize computers to playe the music across them all, but you can only sync on one device. Yes, home sharing is for music, movies, etc.

    What is your actual goal?

    What does it mean to you to sync to two machines?

    machine1<->iOS device<->machine2 or
    machine1->iOS device<-machine2
