A few of the librarians in Watzek were talking today about keyboard options with the iPad. I just came across this YouTube video about Keyboard Secrets for the iPad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4rcdyJWdgU
If you don't have an external keyboard for your iPad, you'll want to watch this video to learn how you can take advantage of some "secret" keyboard tricks. One example is to hold down the exclamation point on your alpha screen -- this reveals the apostrophe, so you don't have to toggle back and forth, or rely on the auto-correct feature, which doesn't always work (e.g. we're/were). Many more hidden keyboard features are revealed in the video.
