    I laugh when I walk in a store or dining place, and You hear whispers from 3 or 4 different locations. "look it's an iPad," or in the faintest whisper some will turn around in line and look at me browsing the forum, turn around and look straight ahead about 5 seconds, and whisper to their partner "that guy behind us has an iPad,"

    I was freaking out about how the game was impossible when I first started playing Tower Madness and she was rolling her eyes.

    In a few days I'll be taking mine to the mall to pass time while my wife does some shopping..We'll see if it draws any attention. I know the Apple store there is jammed with people wanting to see it.

    I stop at McDonalds whoever I can't find a Starbucks. My last trip to Starbucks was met with a curious fellow Mac user. I was happy to tell him about my iPad and the forum here. I would have expected more comments and interest from people.

    I took mine on my school bus one day to show one of my good friends who is also a tech addict and of course like 3 other kids saw it and ofc had to play with it. They were just so shocked to see a kid my age have one. One of the kids even told me he was waiting for gen 2. There is obv a lot of interest at my highschool . I have also taken mine to panera but never had anybody come up to me. One time at panera tho I saw a girl walk in with an iPad my age which i thought was really cool but I didn't Talk to her. The ipad is a great conversation starter tho!

    I actually work at a starbucks and I like to take my ipad to work so I can read on it and check my email while I'm on my breaks and lunches and such. but I hate people coming up to me and asking me things about it so I usually sit in the backroom. every once in a while I'll sit at the bar and I have had a couple people ask me how I like it and stuff.

    Liquids? I take mine on my boat all the time for music, weather, facebook, etc. I have mine in the apple case and it protects it well. We're jumping in and out of the water, mixing cocktails, etc.

    Only thing I'm concerned about is whether the home button is waterproof. But apple must expect people to push an iPhone button in the rain and this button seems to be the same design so I'm not worried.

    I would NEVER bring a laptop on a boat. Typing with wet fingers? Drinks everywhere? Struggling to read the screen in the sun? No way. But the iPad glass screen is perfect for this!

    I think it depends where in the world you are.....and specifically what type of establishment you're visiting.

    I remember taking my first gen iPhone (this is in Canada, first gen only available in the US) and I got absolutely swarmed anywhere I went. Once the iPhone 3G came out here, it seems like people would only question me at a local non corporate whore coffee shop. Starbucks had about 10 other tech savvy people sitting there playing with their iPhones already lol. :eek:
