Hacker or Purist? Which are You?
There are iPad purists and there are iPad hackers. iPad purists insist that the iPad is just fine as is, a marvelous piece of hardware married to stupid-simple, rock-solid software. iPad hackers, on the other hand, can't resist the temptation to tinker and crack. To them, the iPad is just another piece of hardware territory to be explored, prodded, probed, and extended.
If you haven't figured it out already, I'm a hacker at heart.

WARNING: The solutions discussed in the pages to come involve "jailbreaking" your iPad. Apple does NOT permit Jailbreaking under terms of your iPad license agreement, so proceed at your own peril. I am not responsible for you "bricking" your iPad. That being said, I haven't bricked my iPhone or iPad after jailbreaking, so your milage may vary. One other note. The updates presented do not work flawlessly, so be prepared for some minor headaches like drivers that need to be manually reawakened after the iPad goes to sleep.
Okay, now you can keep reading.
