Default Who has an IPad?

Wondering how many folks here use IPads.

Got one for my mother awhile back, and she actually uses it now for reading books, and newspapers... which impresses me that she learned how to use it.

I don't have one myself though.

I've had one for about 6 months, got the 16gb model with both wifi and 3G. I love it. I mean, it is really just a large format iPod but the larger screen makes all the difference in the world to me. It will be great for traveling, plus the 3G gives me backup internet at home should my DSL ever crash.

I have one. I just got the 32 GB Wifi Only. I'm totally and completely inlove with it. Zinio and it's magazines is my downfall. I've had an E:Reader for about 2 1/2 years so haven't switched my books over yet, I'm still using my Sony.

I will not allow a "Tool of the Devil" into my home.

This all stems back to the mid-nineties and early century when divisions would go against corporate policy and "decide" to buy Mac's. The Mac, especially of the "Firewire" generation were the worst computers to network. Then there would be calls from frantic division managers wondering why their $100,000 of new computers didn't connect to the servers. I politely would say that it is against corporate policy to use Mac's without prior approval and that they would need to get an EVP to approve the resources to connect to the network and they would be charged for those resources. It was usually another $20,000 or more to make them work. Once they were hooked up then the problems started about "why" the applications didn't work. All that productivity they were going to get from using Macs went right out the window.

Take care,
Mike

I had one for about 24 hours. I made the mistake of showing it off to the wife. We were watching Oprah or something and Laura Bush was a guest talking about her book that was just released that day. I went to iBooks and downloaded it for her. Impressive. Now she uses it for a reader, for email (she had NEVER emailed before), to surf the web, etc.

It's great for travel. I've d/l TV shows to watch while on an airplane. She then uses it as a reader on the cruise. We've used it with shuttle driver to show him the best route to take us to our car, checked air schedules, get breaking news, etc.

I'm considering getting another.
