Is anyone successfully using their iPad to control a Mac remotely using Back to My Mac (BTMM) or a 3rd party app such as Logmein or VNC? If so I'd be keen to learn if the experience is as good as using a Macbook pro.
I'd be very suprised if BTMM is supported, but perhaps it is doable if a keyboard and / or a mouse is attached to the iPad?

I use my iPad in my car to entertain my child while driving and I would like to know if there is a way to change the movie he is watching (in the backseat) using my iPhone while I am sitting in the front seat? I think it would be great if I don't have to physically remove the iPad from its headrest mount to change to a different show.
I was wondering if there is a way to lock my iPad when it is too far from my iPhone?Like, if my iPad go out of my iPhone bluetooth range, it will instantly lock and the only way to unlock it is to bring it back into my iphone bluetooth range. (or passcode lock)and vice versa.
I would like to purchase an iPad for my mother. This will be the first time she will experience personal computing and the Internet, so I would like to make the transition as smooth as possible.Because my mother is new to this environment, she does not have an existing computer that would have iTunes loaded. I do not live close to her and do not have anyone that can support her locally. Would it be possible to have iTunes in the cloud that the iPad could connect to and I could maintain? If this is not an option, could the iPad remotely connect to my computer and access iTunes that way? Would it also be possible to gain remote access to the iPad while she views the screen? That way I can show her how to use the device and provide remote support.
I'm having problems getting this to work. Can anyone suggest a tutorial to set this up? It says I have a double NAT issue. I have and airport extreme set up with a guest account, is that the issue? Does that mean that I have to get rid of the guest network to accomplish this or is there a work around?
My family is buying an iPad for my 85 year-old grandmother and we'd like to be able to get pictures of her great grandchildren to her remotely without having to bother her with emailing, saving attachments from email to her photo app, etc.

I have MobileMe account and it syncs with my iPhone with no problem every hour as I specified in my System Preference. With my iPad, the emails can go onto the iPad fine, but my iCal, Contacts, ...etc. won't sync even if I ask MobileMe to sync everything. The only way is to connect the computer and the iPad and everything sync up right away. Pls tell me where to find info on this.
Hi, i have recently purchased an IPad mainly for videos, music, books etc but i have started to look at how i can use it for work. One of the things i am trying to do is to access our sales database via VPN when out of the office. I have used the VPN settings from my laptop that runs windows XP pro and it is connecting to a Windows SBS 2003 server, i can connect using these settings fine but that is about it. When i try and access the database via atomic browser (using the firefox 3 setting) it comes up with the error message 'couldn't find host' When i access it in the office using the wifi network it works fine. The CRM database is called Accpac and is not the latest edition. I was told by our support company i couldn't access it anywhere as is only compatible with IE but i have managed to in the office but nowhere else.
When I help a friend of mine with his iMac I often take over his screen in iChat. That's incredibly useful and time-saving.Is there some similar way I can access his iPad - either from my Mac or my iPad - and see his iPad screen remotely and operate it
