Still slowly learning how to use a tablet instead of a PC (which I am admittedly not proficient on).

Tablets waaaay easier to master once you get the hang of it. It's less complicated and there are fewer functions to learn.

Know how many stupid I pods we got around here ? AOLT and tom toms ect ect.
We usually keep them locked up for a specific time for owners to claim unless its ammo then it disappears After it clears that time we usually give them out for christmas presents lol

One thing I have found over the years in junk or wrecked cars that is baffling is the amount of personal info I find in cars .
Car titles
SS cards
all kinds of bank statements
bills
school documents
photos
cell phones
wallets
credit and debit cards
check books
schedules , school and work
kids and relatives info
pay stubs
meds
medical statements
gift cards are popular
just everything about a person you could want , its a ID thief dream come true forget your house , its your car .
It wont take 5 minutes to go through your car to clean all that crap out .

Next time I have a few minutes , I will prove it , I will take photos of all the stuff I find but block out all info .
WAY WAY more than enough info and documents to steal ones ID , hell you cant even look at their bank statements to see if they are even worth stealing .
Hell even if a BG was not a ID thief they could still sell all that info .

Well, the iPad has been loading the video since I posted that. Still working. I think. There is no progress bar showing if it is actually working or not. I am using my laptop now and letting the iPad do only one task.

Damn. Its just not working for me. I am trying to post a short video using the iPad. I click on the paper-clip "attachment" icon, then the "browse" button, then I select from existing video, the video compresses and then I upload it, then it doesn't go anywhere from there.

Not sure what I am doing wrong.
