I have an iPad and an iPod touch running on my pc. My mother in law would like an iPad, can I sync it on mine? Or will I have too many devices attached?
Thanks

Don't know what the limit happens to be (or if there even is one). I currently sync 2 iPhones, iPod Nano, and iPad with a single user account.

It can get kind of confusing when you have multiple devices that sync apps (and you have a ton of them) and you want different apps syncing with each device.

If she's got her own computer, that really would be the best way to go.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

No, she does not have her own pc. All she really wants to do is google information and email, she is 85 by the way. I wanted to make it as simple as possible for her.

Didn't want to make an "assumption" of where she lives. Unless there is a wifi network set up in her house, there will be no googling or email without purchasing the 3G iPad and subscribing to a monthly 3G access fee.

10-4 Sounds pretty cool.

Verizon's mifi device would work also, though it'd require having another device plugged into the iPad. Might compare that to the AT&T 3G service.
