iPad 2 is here and we can’t get enough of it. It’s on the market and it is the ultimate heat of the market. Everyone is talking about it. I remember my moment of buying this little monster. It was a very hard job to find it. The shortage of iPad 2 was much of a concern for me but I was lucky to find one. My advice would be that if you buy any tablet you should either have 3G Service or wifi connectivity in your home. iPad is all about handy networking.

Virtual private networks are the blessing. You can enjoy the freedom to full extent. What VPN do is that it changes the current ip address provided by the ISP with that of the some other country. And in this way it enables you to bypass the censorship offered by some banned sites.

I have a very specific need.

I wish to extend the desktop of my computer to iPad to give me a touchscreen for instruments.

There is an Apple app, but it interferes with DirectX which is integreal to the running of Microsoft Flight Simulator X.

If I can make the connection by VPN I will be most happy to pay a provider.
