Having given up on winning an iPad2 from Randy, I'm going to take the plunge and buy one soon. Trying to figure out if I need to purchase accessories that Apple offers with it, connectors, AppleCare, etc. The Apple SmartCover looks slick, but I don't think it's right for me. I plan on buying the Otterbox Defender for iPad2 whenever it comes out. The primary uses for iPad2: eBook reading, some internet browsing (buying wi-fi only model), Skyping while on road, but a bunch of video watching from ripped DVDs (from laptop, figuring out how to get them onto iPad2). Appreciate any advice.
