Bluetooth Capability To Access Bluetooth Hard Drives?
Jun 16, 2010
I was wondering if you can use the bluetooth capability in the Ipad to access a bluetooth hard drive or flash drive for extra storage? If not do they have any plans to make this available in future updates. Just curious. I am going to be doing some camping and would like to be able to store extra movies and such on my Ipad.
I have tried and tried to get my ipad to sync with my bluetooth printer and it will not. I go to the support and find out it will only find supported printers on my wifi network. What was the point of the update? I might as well just use the ipad as a door stop or a fishing weight. It does me no good. I was hoping to use this for work, I even bought a new bluetooth module for my printer in anticipation because I thought....the powers that be would most definitely give the ipad BLUETOOTH PRINTING CAPABILITIES. I was disappointed when I bought the ipad and found there was no printing capability, now I'm really dissatisfied. Why does Apple create such genius stuff and then leave out the important things. This will be the last time I buy anything Apple too many disappointments after spending lots of money.
I have pre-ordered the 3G I-pad. I was very close to ordering a new macbook when news of the ipad hit so I sat on the sidelines and opted for the ipad. Wanted somethig to read news on the couch with the family and this seemed right up my alley.One question though...I have a bunch of files on a shared drive here at the house Will I be able to view these files and/or save to that folder from the ipad. I'm thinking not but would love confirmation either way before the order is official.
I tried to search and find, but what does the ipad actually back up. I assume it doesn't duplicate photos, videos etc -- docs that are already on the mac. What does it back up and how much space does it take up since i can't find the backup file.

My question is how can I access my Ipad using my cell phone? I have a Dell Laptop and can access and transfer files using the bluetooth however when I tried this with the IPad it doesn't complete the process. The phone recognizes the IPad but the IPad won't accept?
I already have a dock - I'm interested in the bluetooth keyboard, but won't be using it all the time. I'd like to use it sometimes and use the onscreen at other times (on the go or for quick text). To do this, do I need to disable/enable bluetooth each time? Does bluetooth enabled drain the battery faster (and if so, by how much)? If I disable bluetooth and then re-enable it, do I need to re-sync the keyboard or will it remember the settings?
I'm planning to put a text-to-speech program (proloquo2go) on an iPad, as its used to communicate with it has a really good system for making sentences quick,if the iPad has Bluetooth inside and another PC has Bluetooth enabled is there a way for them to find each other so I could use my iPad to send full sentences into text box,of another computer?,if BB and iPad both have Bluetooth switched on, is there a way they could find each other so I can again compose messages on ipad and then send it to the BB to send as a text message.If not,what exactly are the Bluetooth features meant to do on these devices.
I would like to buy a set of nice wireless stereo headphones for use with the new iPad 3. However I've been reading some technical articles about the shortcomings of Bluetooth A2DP (specifically lag more than anything). There is a great article from 2008 over here about it. [URL]
It seems the only choice we have currently for low lag, high quality Stereo headsets are to use Apt-X headsets (like Sennheiser PX 210 BT Apt-X) along with a dongle to give the iPad Apt-X compression ability.
It seems mad to me that the newest iPad and iPhone 4s don't support Apt-X natively yet, although they include Bluetooth 4.0 as standard which hardly anyone else uses yet.I'd love to be able to use Bluetooth 4.0 if that enables low lag stereo audio, but of course there aren't any BT4.0 headphones out there yet to test this.
The reason I need low lag is I want to use them when playing games, and obviously I don't want to be hearing sounds 0.5 seconds later than they occur in-game. Does anyone here have any real experience of the Apt-X solutions in relation to lag and sound quality? Also is the dongle a battery drain?
I've got a bluetooth keyboard dock combo; and a regular bluetooth keyboard for my ipad. Sometimes when its docked in the combo; but still connected via bluetooth to the other keyboard; I'll get a continuous key repeat when entering data into a password field. It'll just go on and on. I have to disconnect it from bluetooth keyboard; and all is fixed. A bug?

Is there a way to access the iPad keyboard while using the apple blutooth keyboard without pressing a button on the Bluetooth keyboard? There are times when I am away from my keyboard, but still need to type on the iPad. The only way I can figure out how to do it is to turn off my blutooth. Is there a setting on the iPad 2 or command/swipe that will bring up the onscreen keyboard?

I can't see anything on Apple's website about the iPad having bluetooth, but surely it does have it, I hope? It would be nice to listen to music without a wire running to the device, and who knows, perhaps Skype or Vonage could be ported to it, and it could become your phone...
I just purchased an Ipad-3 (will arrive in a week or two). I'm retiring my Macbook to home use and will be taking my Ipad with me traveling where there is no internet connection ( on a sailboat offshore ). I always make a bootable backup my Macbook on an external firewire hard drive using SuperDuper and keep it with me in case somethings happens to my computer.
I understand that you can access your computer remotely using a program like 'PocketCloud Remote Desktop'. The description says that I can access and use programs as if it was the Macbook only remotely.
can I take my bootable external hard drive, attach it to the Ipad-3 and run a program like 'Iweb' saving it back to the external drive, then disconnect the drive and keep it safe.
I was going to purchase a MacAir but decided on the Ipad-3 instead. Of course I will always have my Macbook or other Apple computer home to work with.
What exactly is the bluetooth good for on the mac?? I guess (only because I haven't really played around with it much) what all can you do with it?? Transfer to/from a phone or computer?? only pics? documents?? Anyway, just looking for some insight.
Has anyone tried using a stand along external Bluestooth Mic (see below LINK) to an iPad with Audio apps? http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5669431&CatId=5499 Would love to get rid of the cables for simple iPad audio recordings and various apps.

We just got an Apple Bluetooth Keyboard and when my wife plugged it in the Mac computer saw it and paired with it. And when she tried to get it to pair with her iPad... it did... but then the Mac computer couldn't see it. (It told her she had to set it up first on iPad, then on the computer-- so she deleted it off the Mac computer list.)
How do we get it to see BOTH her computer and iPad?
I sure hope this is Apple simple because we are not computer wizards.

I have this blackberry visor mount Bluetooth car fm transmitter. Works fine with the iPhone and my Blackberry but when attempting to use the fm transmit the iPad does not seem to connect properly. Unsure why maybe os4 ?
I'm using an iPad 3G 64GB with my Apple bluetooth keyboard. Everything works great, but one thing annoys me. If I'm using the bluetooth keyboard and then walk away from my desk and lay in bed with my ipad, I cant bring up the software keyboard without turning bluetooth "off." But, if I take my ipad to work (without my keyboard), then bluetooth can be "on," and the software keyboard works fine (because I'm out of range of the Apple keyboard).I want to be able to leave bluetooth "on" all the time.
I'm a little confused about bluetooth headphones and Imacs/ipads. Is it right that the 27" imac doesn't support bluetooth audio but the Ipad does? If the Ipad/Ipod supports them does anyone know of some good ones that are reasonably priced? i.e $75 range.
