    I have watched, listened to, seen, read and enjoyed a great deal of things i hadn't got around to previously. Because it works anywhere I am I have more opportunities to play. In a way it feels like discovering the Internet all over again. In those days there was almost only text.

    I agree I spend one hour a day trying out new apps and pick of my favorites then place those on a special page. I am requesting refund on 2 apps which frankly don't cut it
    It is easier with the iPad as far as I am concerned I do not buy local papers any more as I can read the Australian , newyork times, USA today and tech mags when i wake up not. Only saving money but making time for other things I can do later

    There are no refunds on apps so good luck with that.

    They used to give refunds at the developers expence(take $0.30 on the dollar when paying developer, then taking full price from devloper to refund customer). but apple changed the policy a while back and they no longer issue refunds unless you were unable to download the song/app from them.Their system knows if it was fully downloaded or not.

    This is the one thing I prefer with the Android market over iTunes, you have 24 hours to ask for a refund if you don't like an app.

    Haha, I also have more content prepared on my laptop ready for consuming on the iPad than I could ever possibly use it all. :D

    Personally, I really don't see the need for more than 16GB on a iPad for myself. I highly doubt I would have time to go threw that much media in a day or 1 sitting. I don't need 20 movies ready to go or 30Gb of music with me at all times.

    Unless you are away from your computer you sync with for over a week at a time.......

    I seem to have come to a download plateau. It doesn't take long to "pick the eyes" out of the app store. I want more new Apps.

    Actually the trouble with the app store is that it's too damned big. After a few pages my eyes glaze over and I switch to something more enjoyable :(

    The natural way to achieve download balance.......

    I prefer to browse at Appshopper.com myself. It's easier to find things and there are better filters.
