    Using the ipad 2 on the bus - is it showing off?

    I have an ip4 and always using it on the bus when i sometimes take it to downtown work. The thing is i generally dont bring my ipad out of the bag cause im worried itll make it look like im showing off cause its so big. Whqt do you think? People are always typing away on their smartphones on the bus but i cant say ive ever seen anyone use an ipad on the bus.

    No more than Walkmen or the first cell phones were when they came out IMO. Just a matter of time before the novelty of any new technology wears off. Like anything else of value though, just make sure you have a good grip on it when you get off the bus.

    I think it just depends where you are.
    You cannot compare US with all other regions in the world. Here in northern Europe it is still not the "normal thing" but also not uncommon, whereas in some parts of Asia I was told "sitting with your iPad at Starbucks is a guarantee for getting the opportunity to get laid" - so I guess thats not so different in the bus.

    Nah, definitely not showing off. I'm going to be playing games on mine to and from campus, but it's a student only freeway flyer. I'd hesitate to use it on a regular city bus or something, but that's just me and my paranoia.

    I use mine everyday in the train and on the subway. I mean, I gotta do something while riding the public transport and I swear my bigger iPad is much more comfortable for both my hands and eyes compared to my cell phone (xperia mini)

    I honestly could not care less if other people might think I'm 'showing off'.

    If you tilt it so everyone, including the driver, sees the Apple logo you might want to check your motives. Anything else would probably be seen by normal people as you are using your device and probably won't even notice what it is. It could be an ipad, a phone, a desktop, whatever, they probably won't care.

    You should worry more about someone stealing it from you than looking like you're showing off. People would kill for a lot less.

    In parts of Chicago, you would get jacked up for using one in public. People on public transport have had iPhones and iPods stolen. It can be a pretty common occurrence. Sad state of affairs, isn't it?

    That's why I'd only use it on an all student bus.
