Sony reader shouldn't really say unsupported... Or maybe unsupported natively textr can read the books after all.
And if used with full force could be a very good option(haven't tried that myself though as don't have txtr)

My IPad is great, but twice now I have checked the time on its clock and it's an hour or two slow. Has anyone else had IPad clock issues?

toomanybooks, I haven't had any clock issues-but I have the 3G version, which I think synchs automatically to an accurate clock..somewhere

Do you Date and Time set to Set Automatically in Settings/General?

I've got the WiFi only version, but my clock is absolutely accurate. I've got WiFi on almost all the time and browse the web frequently a few times per day; maybe this makes the difference...

I have learned that doing a soft reset temporarily solves the problem. I have an appointment at the genius bar tomorrow. Hopefully they can solve it permanently.

Maybe you have not set something in settings. There's a slide out in "general" that says "set automatically". Maybe that needs to be put to yes?

I have problems using Facebook in Safari on the Ipad. If you look at your or a Friends list of friends, the popup window has no scroll Bar. Does anyone know what the cause is and is there a way around it.

I have also noticed that if you use scroll selectors on Web Forms in Safari, the hight can be very short, making it difficult to see the selections.
