I wish I could offer any suggestions. I do not really know Apple productst well, though I recently bought an iphone. I am computer NON-literate. think Helen Keller of computer owners (hands out in front, feeling my way)
my husband, who is a programmer, often rails on and on about the whole Apple concept of the "walled garden", wherein Apple has it's own way of doing things and do not bother to concern themselves at all with being compatible with outside developments, since they will do it ALL for you, THEIR way. as long as you stay with them inside the walled garden.
