    Im the only one here. Everyone asks why i bother whem i can just use my desk computer.

    1) i dont know about you but my work blocks alot of sites that i access alot.
    2) added privacy using my owm 3g connection
    3) can go sit in my car or in the lunchroom, im not tied to my desk. Im at my desk for long enough as is.

    I bring mine to work sometimes so I can read books or magazines during breaks or slow times. I own my own business so I have no rules but work does come first.
    I've even used it for customers to view when they want me to see what they saw when they were online. Used to be, they'd want to sit at my desk and mess with my computer. Got funny looks when I would refuse but now I just hand them the ipad opened to Safari and tell them not to stray from the browser. It's worked well so far.

    Well since about half of my income comes from ebay and the other half from photography, i have my ipad with me allmday usually. I use it to post about 60% of my auctions amd am constantly using it in the field for photography as well. I a, still waiting for camera control app that does away with a computer and wifi. Wishful thinking i guess...gee i better turn auto correct back on.

    I often use my iPad for work. But I will also check email, listen to podcasts or watch videos at lunch or on break.

    I bring mine to work so I can occasionally read my current book at lunch or even download a currently promoted iPad app before the promotion ends if it is a one day thing. I also use it in the work gym when I am on the treadmill for example to watch an episode of a series to while the time away.
