Barnaby here. I've been an Apple person for almost 15 years. My other half and I both have an iPhone 3G. I got my iPad on the first day that the 3G was available, and I'm totally in love with it. I used to be a fine book reader, meaning that I went in for really elegant bindings. Now that I have the iPad, I've canceled my membership to the Folio Society and prefer to read books on the iPad. I do some writing on it with Pages, so I'm also productive. This is absolutely the best invention ever! Thank you, Steve Jobs!
