TidBITS has a great article titled "22 Useful iPad Tips." It points out, for example, that although the iPad ships with four app icons in the dock, there's actually space there for two more. And it notes that while you might have a tendency to make large swipes, such as when scrolling through photos, you can actually just make a small swipe of half an inch. Also, TidBITS has a helpful post that gives a good overview of the iPad Wi-Fi problems some are experiencing (also covered in this earlier post by Tari). The article is hopeful that a software update will fix it. Also, this article in Macworld covers the issue and suggests that the problem only affects a small number of users.
