Hello from the upper left hand corner of the map of the USA (and the home of Starbucks, Tully's & SBC Coffee, Boeing (before their headquarters moved, at least!), "Grunge" and Jimmy Hendricks!) I have been using my iPad since day one and I use it for a lot of different tasks: It is a very good eReader (sans DRM, of course!) and I use it to present from (using Keynote) and to teach a marching band (I'm an on-the-side drill writer, and I use it to store and share my drill files). I also use it to catch up on my personal e-mail and the web while commuting. Overall I am quite happy with my little friend!
