If I may clarify, as I'm sure many of you know, the iPad comes with a 10W Charger adapter. This is because the iPad takes, you guessed it, 10 watts of power to charge. Now, it has been confirmed that you can charge it VERY SLOWLY from usb IF it is asleep. If you are using it and is connected via usb, it WILL NOT charge. So, go with the wall adapter.

Melech is not a "12 year old". He does hardware repairs. He will help you with hardware repairs and owns a apple repair shop I believe.
But besides the point please keep it civil in here and stay near topic.

while writing out a 3-4 paragraph post on another website, my wifi glitched out 3 times. it would try to reconnect 5 or 6 times and keep giving me errors along the way. I just concluded I had to sit back and wait for it to fix itself. no lock mode involved. screen was on the whole time, then suddenly had seizures.
it's not the router, as nothing else on the network is having any problems. if it persists, Apple will be getting this device returned. when it comes to a stable wifi connection, it needs to "just work".

Well...that's my consolation for it not having arrived in the UK yet....by the time it gets here and I get one, all the glitches would hopefully have been sorted out

If you have a jailbroken iPhone, install mywi from cydia and use it to tether internet for your iPad. It's cool when you're outside and you use your iPad to connect to the internet, thus no need to buy the 3G version and pay for the monthly bill.
For security purposes always dedicate all your gadgets to your wifi.

For those of us without an iPhone, maybe even having this be our first or only Apple Touch-based device, (at the moment, at least), the wireless and monthly fee is an incredible deal. Once we can get Skype and other VoIP services working on the iPad, combine it with some Google Voice and Gizmo (which there are already many, many guides for around the internet solely for the iPhone), and wrap it all together with a bluetooth headset/earphones w/ microphone, this will be a pretty slick $30/month unlimited internet & voice device.

Wired just did a whole article on the confusion of the battery charging.
Here is the short version:
Older, USB 2.0 ports deliver 0.5 amp, which is only enough to charge the iPad when it’s off. Newer machines that feature USB ports conforming to Battery Charging v1.1 standards, and the iPad’s own power outlet, have enough power that the iPad can draw the full 1.5 amps it needs to recharge the battery while it’s running, according to the USB Implementers Forum.

I am very confused as to how that makes him right?
Whats the name of your repair shop, I want to report you to apple for spreading false information that is clearly stated otherwise on their site.
