The wife bought me a new Ipad 2 for Xmas. I have never owned anything other than a laptop or desktop. It is sitting still sealed in the box as I lost my beloved dog on Xmas eve. I have been in rough shape the last few weeks and am starting to get my life back to normal. With that being said I ordered a protective case and screen today. I also would like some recommendations. I need a pair of head phones as I intend to watch Netflix-Amazon-and mkv's. Looking for decent but inexpensive. What do I need to play mkv's off of my server? Any nice apps or games that are a must have? I intend to use it on the couch and in bed while the wife is watching those reality type shows. Uggggh. Thanks to any that may help in any way.
