This video shows how I made my iPad into a desktop computer or better yet how you can use both a Bluetooth keyboard and Bluetooth mouse with your iPad.
I did a crazy thing today, I made my iPad a desktop computer. I paired a Bluetooth keyboard and a Bluetooth mouse to my jailbroken iPad. it worked pretty well, but not without issues.
