    My 500gb hd took a big dump on me and so did my music and movie collection....FML


    Otherwise 60 gbs would not be sufficient to fulfill my music collection alone.

    It doesn't take smarts to limit content on any device, lol. It's a matter of preference. I could live in a smaller house, too, but I choose not to. I choose not to juggle content, as I would with less space, because I don't want to bother.

    I'm almost filled up on music alone. 2 movies are just right.

    LOL :) This is true. Every time storage tech improves, it seems that everything else just gets bigger. Bigger is better. So American. LOL :)

    But to answer the OP, no. It seems that I hover around 30ish GB of use at any given time. So, like half. I'm not a shutterbug and my taste in music, while broad, is discerning, so I don't have too much music either. Maybe 10 gigs in the lalalas. I use my iPad quite a bit in my work. I am a court interpreter and translator. I get a lot of documents in PDF format to translate from Spanish to English and the ease of the page swipe and pinch zoom are a godsend because sometimes the scans of those PDFs aren't the greatest. But those docs are off my iPad as soon as I am done with them. I'm kindov' a tech neat freak. If I'm not using it, buh-bye. I have a terabyte external to hold everything in case I need to retrieve it.

    Now if someone could just write a nice little transcriptionist's app for the iPad, then I would truly be in heaven.

    I don't put any music on my iPad. I use Stream To Me to listen to all my music from iTunes. Unfortunately this only works on wifi.

    What have you against cloud storage? It's a wonderful way to back up your files and you can stream in 3G from anywhere. I use Amazon MP3 and I love it (on my Droid 2).

    I only have about 3 gigs left. A few days ago I had about 25 gigs but then I got the av player which plays mvks. So I loaded a few of my 720p mkvs to watch.

    Memory and storage are the same thing. They are both flash memory. If you are talking about the difference between ram and regular memory (the 16, 32, or 64 gbs) then they are the same.

    Uhmm, no. Memory and storage are NOT the same, and are entirely different in terms of how they work on a computer, and should not be used interchangeably. That's exactly where so much of the confusion comes from.

    Memory, also known as RAM, is a more volatile form of computer memory which in the iPad is comprised of SDRAM circuits (not flash memory), and there are usually about 20+ native processes on iOS running at any given time when the iPad is active. When you start an app, this is where it 'runs' and when you multitask between apps, this is where they are switched in and out of active memory. iPad1 has 256 MB and iPad2 has 512 MB of RAM.

    Storage, also known as disk space, is the amount of space on your device to store apps and other kinds of data including music, videos and ebooks. These are stored on flash memory on the iPad, which is why it runs so much faster than, say, a laptop with a spinning hard drive. On both generations of iPad, storage comes in 16, 32 and 64 GB options.

    No need for a long explanation, I know how flash memory works.

    My point was, that essentially they are the same. Flash memory. Ram has a highway to the CPU and is used more often.
