ASK LEO: "My new iPad is set to call itself JenM's iPad and I did not name it that! Do you know how I change that? I tried just changing the signature which worked for that one area but not overall. I know I could ask Apple but you might mention that on the show. Thanks, Jennifer"

"Hasn't the "Brydge" already been done . . . twice!?!?! (or more)
The Zagg Folio, which I have, and the Kensington KeyFolio and Logitech seem to offer what seems to be the exact functionality.
The Zagg does not charge the iPad (any keyboard would have to have a "dongle" to plug into the sync connector) and it adds a bit of weight and height but it protects the iPad great! The feature that I like the most is that it places screen at a better viewing angle than the Apple flip cover.
"I'm a big fan of "iPad Today" and I always look forward to your show each week. In last week's episode you talked about Tweetbot and it's ability to your place in the timeline in sync between the app on the iPhone and the iPad, which I think is wonderful! I thought you might be interested to know that with one of the latest updates to Tweetbot there are two ways of doing this. The first method uses iCloud to maintain this data for the user, but the second method uses the Tweetmarker service, which other apps are also capable of using. I prefer using Tweetmarker because this allows me to use a Tweetmarker-compatible app on my desktop or laptop; personally I use Osfoora for this. This allows me to keep Tweetbot on my iPad and iPhone and Osfoora on my desktop all in sync with each other. It even works with some cross-platform applications as well for those that use Windows or Linux. I thought others might be interested in this.
Many thanks J.P. (Joe from Staten Island emailed the same thing)"
