You mean, across the Internet (or at least through WLAN)?
Interesting approach. Still, I did hope that the USB cable
could be used and control is exercised from a normal computer
(the one running FreeBSD). I don't think installing 3rd party
apps should be required just to get one's photos from the
iPad to a PC (see notes regarding not buying a Mac and not
buying a new PC and licensing a "Windows")...

I don't have much experience with iPads so I wouldn't even
know what to install, or how. It's not as easy as using
"adb install appname-apk" on Android. ;-)
