If you - or your family or friends - have just unwrapped a brand new iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, or Mac for Christmas, especially if it's your first one, you're in for a treat. The sheer amount of technology, the sheer joy of the user experience, the sheer potential of what you can do with them - well, get ready to work some wonders! If you need some help getting started - or your family and friends do, and you'd rather get on with the holidays rather than with tech support - we're here to help!

I can't imagine a time where setting up a new Apple device has been this easy and fun. More so with all the helpful articles and tips above. Thanks!

Also worth noting that AppleCare is open today as well.

Got a iPad mini 2 last night and the thing is amazing--Apple really nailed it! Feels wonderful to hold and I'm looking forward to having it with me for work as I travel around the cities each day. Now I just have to decide if I get a smart cover or a smart case....hmmmmm.....will hit the Apple Store tomorrow.

I love the Smart Cover on my iPad 3. The case IMO adds too much thickness. The aluminum doesn't scratch in my experience. That's the older design, though, I don't know if they've changed the finish. Anyone with experience?

Thanks, Rene! I just bought the new iPad Mini, and I'm having so much fun using it. I like Android, but it's nice to try something different!
