Why do I have duplicate calendars in iCal on my iPad?

This problem seems to be cropping up frequently lately, as we've received numerous contacts from individuals experience duplicate copies of calendars on their iPad.

The problem does not exist on the Mac that the iPad is being synced with, only on the iPad itself.

In every instance, the individuals that were experiencing this duplication were MobileMe customers (trial, subscribers, no matter).

The duplication is caused by having calendar syncing enabled both on the iPad and the iPhone.

To resolve:

1) on your iPad, launch the Settings app

Review: Tetris for the iPad (EA)

Tetris: still great after all these years.

Tetris for iPad is an optimized/juiced-up version of the game available on the iPhone. It will cost you $7.99 to buy.

First of all, everyone loves Tetris. If you don't love Tetris, you are more likely than not some sort of weirdo. I mean even communists love Tetris. They invented it after all. These were people who had to wait in line to buy toilet paper and paid massive markup prices for a pair of Levi's Jeans on the black market. I mean these poor people needed something to cheer them up. I can imagine that the epilogue to Rocky IV would have shown a shamed, depressed and exiled Ivan Drago playing Tetris to cheer himself up. Yes, I bet that mean, juiced-up, killer of Apollo Creed turned to Tetris for solace.

For many people, their first experience with Tetris was the free version on their first generation Game Boy. Others might have been directed to it by their cubicle neighbors. Imagine the massive number of productive work hours lost to the game. One of the unique and fantastic things about the game is its diversity of gamers: kids, grandparents even non-gamers love Tetris.

Are iPhone applications displayed full screen on the iPad?

By default, iPhone applications -- when run on the Apple iPad -- are displayed at their native size pinned to the center of the iPad screen.

Users may double tap the application to stretch it to fit the iPad window using a feature known as "pixel doubling". This will, however, result in a noticeably reduced clarity of the application in question.
