    What are using your iPad for that you didn't expect?

    Yes, these are all things you can do with your iPad. However, instead of what you expected to be using it for, what do you find yourself doing that you didn't consider a buying point when you bought it.

    I imagined I'd do a lot of web browsing and reading books, but I find I am using it for Netflix streaming far more than I would have imagined.

    Nah, got the perfect thing for that. Bought a box of Cinnabuns at the mall, and I was asked by half dozen women where I was taking them as I walked through the mall. I broke their hearts when I said they were for my wife.

    Still, it is out there if you need an option.

    I expected all of those. Reading magazines (like Wired and Popular Mechanics) was a surprise. Also remote control of my PC (iTeleport or LogMeIn) was also unexpected. I also use it a lot more for showing technical info. to customers for work (brochures) than I imagined.

    I got mine for school [mainly] so I could leave my rather heavy 15'' MBP at home for my one hour commute.

    iAnnotate and various dropbox apps have been great for school, but seeing as how I have a WiFi only version I usually load my MiTube app with a bunch of Youtube videos before my commute so I have something to watch during the ride. I didn't think I'd use it for videos that much, but... I do now haha.

    I have never been too much into reading books but the ipad has changed all that. I loaded some books on it just to check out ibooks and now I read on it every day. It is nice having a small library with me wherever I without having to carry around multiple books. Definitely never saw this one coming.

    I didn't know that there was an iPad version of Civilization Revolution. Add that to Angry Birds HD and Plants .vs. Zombies HD, and well, I never imagined I'd be hooked on playing games on it!

    Reading Comics

    I'm reading a lot of comics with the iPad.

    Using the Marvel app and an app specially for Transformers - my favorite comic books.
