I've had iPads since Launch Day 2010 and have loved them all...... Right now the household is rocking the iPad 3 and the iPad Mini. What do I do with them?
--Check email, respond to email, send out new email from home or when I'm out of the house and away from home
--Check my various online forums and respond to posts or make new posts, again, either at home or away from home
--Check Facebook (when I remember to do so -- not a heavy user of that!)
--Surf the web to look up something when I am in need of information about a particular person or subject (really comes in handy when I'm out with friends and we get into a discussion and I can pull out the iPad and find answers!)
--Play games both alone or with a friend who also has an iPad
--Add new appointments and such to my calendar
--Make notes to myself about something I need to do later
--Read books I've purchased through iBooks, read a couple of my magazines that have digital editions along with their print versions
--Show off my photos
--Watch videos, tv shows, movies (both material that I have synced from iTunes in the computer or new material on YouTube, in online news articles, etc.)
--Listen to music
There are probably a couple more things; these are what immediately came to mind!
