  1. Weird.

    Yesterday evening my iPad, which has been activated for 3 years, displayed a message that it couldn’t be activated. It was connected to my Mac Pro but wasn’t recognized. I reset it but still same problem. Then after about 10 minutes it activated and showed up iTunes and all was well.
