    Default The iPad is now chargable from a computer
    Well it's a happy day for you iPad users, today ASUS, Gigabyte, and MSI have released a fix that will enable you to charge via USB. This wasn't possible before because the low power USB ports were not liked by the iPad for some reason. As you would assume, they did build these drivers for their own hardware but there is a fix in the video below (mostly for Sony VAIO machines like my own).

    What do you mean? It's simply a bios update. You can try it on your pc/laptop, but at your own risk. If your motherboard is in fact from asus or any of the others that released the update, then you are good. However, if your motherboard is not from them, it may work, or it may fudge it all to brownies. Ya dig?
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix

    I noticed my acer laptop does indeed charge my iPad. It says not charging but I left it plugged in for a few hours and the battery said it was at like 82%. After I came back and unplugged it the battery was at 100%. It was slow as heck but hey, at least it charged it.
