    I've found myself using my iPad less and less as each day goes on..

    I haven't started my work contract yet so I have no real business needes to accomplish yet..

    Now I just use it for a quick facebook update, flipboard, and reading the news before bed. It almost hurts me..

    :(

    Awwwww...... I am using mine less too. Until I find another cool app or hack it is just for facebook and email. Yep, the coolness factor is wearing off...

    I've actually been using mine more over the holidays than I have in the past simply because I am home more right now (we have a week shutdown at work over the holidays). Once I go back to work I will start using it less because even if I were allowed to use it at work I have no reason to do so.

    I am actually finding more uses weekly for almost every aspect of my day. From reading the forum, like right now, to using it more and more for business. Maybe because I find so much easier to use than any PC I've ever used.

    As it gets more functional, my usage of it goes up. Splashtop added a lot more usage to it, and I expect the Clear iSpot I bought to increase its usefulness as well since it removes AT&T 3G's limitations. I still spend a LOT of free time reading - I read 3 novel on it this week alone.

    Early on, the 10+ hour charge would last me a couple of days; now I need to charge it nightly.

    I Would assume, that those who neglect their iPAD for real, are not in that forum any more. Since whats the use of visiting and writing in a forum , that cover something that is no longer interests for you.
    So, Yes. I am sure that out of the 10 Million Users of iPAD there are at least 3% that their iPAD has no charged battery all the time any more . and some 10% that open it once every few days.
    It is very natural with any successful product

    Customization and choice is not for everyone. Some people can't handle such things. Why do you hate it so? It's a 15 month old device to begin with. . . . . Personally i couldn't imagine having an iPhone lacking so many essential features that android offers. To each their own.

    +1 to that. I tried asking before why he hates Android so much but didn't get a response. I couldn't imagine going back to my old iPhone after having my Android 2.2 Samsung Galaxy S.

    Unfortunately LOL not. I use it more than in the beginning in May. I now use my laptop almost never and my desktop primarily for Lightroom/Photoshop for processing RAW photo files and to transfer files to Dropbox, including from our state digital library to view/read on the Ipad. New and better, upgraded apps have made it increasingly functional for me. I'm a PC person for many many years but love the Ipad.

    I wish I WOULD use mine less! I spend all day doing jigsaw puzzles, logic problems, etc. I really need to get some things done.
