    I've only seen one other person since release (not including at the apple store).

    I find it quite odd that even though so many iPads have been sold, they seem so rare...

    Everyone around me is always whispering, "Hey look, its an iPad..."

    I've not seen another one yet either. I guess I don't get out much :)

    When I go to a meeting at work it's likely I'll see at least 5 iPads in the meeting.

    I travel frequently and see someone with an ipad nearly every trip. I am also meeting with people bringing their iPad to the meeting.

    Rarely. Just on TV and I live in silicon valley. Always feel odd when pulling it out.

    I know three people at my work (software company) who have an iPad. I have never seen anybody else with one.

    I have a great scripture app I use at Church. It has lots of study reference materials included, too. Somehow my iPad seems larger at church, tho--I think I'm more self-conscious with it than my iPhone, which I used to use for the same purpose (as do many people I see at my church).

    I actually got called out once. I had forgotten my Bible at home so I was using my iPhone to follow along with the Scriptures. The pastor told me to stop texting and to pay attention. I showed him the phone with the Scripture and... :p
