As as proud iPad owner since release day, April 3rd 2010 at 4:58 PM ET (that's what my receipt shows) and using it daily since then I use it mainly it for:
- eMail (personal)
- Surf the web
- Use "USA Today" app, I just love it for news, sports, etc.
- RSS feeds
- Occasionally log into a Windows PC with iTAP RDP
- Watch movies anywhere
- Listen to my music library and Pandora
- Catch up on all my subscribed to Podcasts
- A few games
- Remote control AppleTV from any room in the house that we stream audio using Apple's Airport Express
- Show off thousands of photos in iPhoto's with UNBELIEVABLE speed
- Use it as a digital picture frame on my desk at work
- Pretty much Everything and anything that does not require a full blown PC
In the future I'm looking forward to be able to:
- Have my technical manuals & admin guides (PDFs) stored in iBooks in their native PDF format
- Have a unified inBox in eMail (I have 4 accounts setup)

Some read books, some listen to music, I on the other hand...
So I had my iPad mailed to me by my wife as I am currently deployed in Iraq for the US Army again (2nd Deployment).
When I received my iPad inspiration struck and my fellow soldiers and I made this video using the iPad for the transitions.
All I can say is Military + iPad + Kanye West = Amazing!!
Hope you like it as much as we did making it!

Just found another use over the weekend, I have a cold and lost my voice, I used a drawing app to scratch out notes of what I wanted to say, worked great!
I use mine for home internet usage. It's nice to be able to take a simple tablet around the house instead of lugging my laptop around.
I do travel a lot for work, and I'll massively use it when I am away from home!
Its 10 hours of battery will grant me movies on the plane, and save my precious Iphone battery...
I posted on another thread, but I couldn't resist posting here: I'm sitting here at the tire shop now waiting on a flat tire to be fixed and I'm reading and replying to this forum, checking out Facebook and taking care of work e-mail. I'm so busy, I can't even get to watching any videos!
Do you use it for studying on college? I am thinking about it...
Amazing is hardly the word for it.
At age 72, I am not close to being able to do what you do, but I thank you for your dedication. Also amazing is the video work you and your buds did in making this. Stay safe.

Well, my iPad is coming on 1 Jul and I have a cover, and 16 apps ready to load. I think I have stopped for a while. Oops, I forgot the ASUS USB charging enhancer, that makes 17 although that one doesn't load on the iPad.
