    Do you give your device a name.

    I've "christened" all my devices.
    The PC's name is Aldebaran, my iPad 2 is called Alkyone, my Android's name is Asterope, my e-book's Elnath.

    Am I the only one who likes this or is there anyone else doing the same?

    Sorry. This doesn't show my poll. There was the possibility to decide between "yes" and "no". Very simple, but it doesn't Show up. Can anyone help me?

    I have three iPads, so giving each their own name makes it easy to tell them apart in iTunes on my computer.

    Do you give your device a name.

    This may surprise the heck out of you, both for its ingenuity and subtlety. I call my iPad "Paddy" 😂🐨

    I used to name my bikes, but they never stuck. Well, the names stuck, I just don't use them.

    Naw...I don't feel the need to name my iPads. They know who they are...and they are with my constantly. They are high on my "getting used list".

    I wish I had an easy way to measure which device actually gets used the most. For my bikes, I would track mileage...so after a few months, it because obvious who wasn't getting any attention so I would switch over. After a while, though, I found I actually had favorites! Still can't bring myself to sell one...maybe oneday...to get even more "devices".

    If Apple ever brings out that 13-inch iPad, you can call it "Paddy Daddy" or "Big Paddy".
