    The deck, the car, the basement (now controls my home theater), the office (when I want to do personal stuff not allowed on the work PC, the airport, the airplane, the hotel lobby, the hotel room, the endless meetings, the park (3G baby) and, of course, the head!

    Every post you rave about how you want Linux on the iPad.... why don't you go to the Linux forums and get with people that hate everything from Apple/Microsoft and just do it!

    You are becoming a troll..........

    Mine hasn't been out of arm's reach since it was delivered last Thursday. I'm off work this week (half-term holidays here in UK) but when I'm back it'll be jammed down the side of my 'go everywhere' toolbox, or in my work backpack during the day, sofa surfing in the evenings, and catching up on emails and the odd web search, news and forums over breakfast. I also have an iPhone, and intend to carry them both, no problem.

    Cheers, Pete.

    #3 I agree with, but its certainly not a dealbreaker.
    The rest are just silly. I mean seriously, you'll spend too much on apps if you carry it? DONT USE THIS THING, THERE"S TOO MUCH GREAT SOFTWARE FOR IT AND YOU WILL SPEND ALL YOUR MONEY!!!! :D

    Linux on the iPad would be a fun experiment though. Be sure and post up if you can get it to run. I dont think I would do it, but it would be fun to see it running.

    haha, I'm just the opposite, I dont really like Apple much as a company, but the iPad is a winner for what I need. I am on call 24/7 to fix databases if something goes wrong. I usually carry a phone, but if I get an alert, its difficult to read the alert on a phone-sized screen. Then I have to get to a "real" computer where I can remote in and fix things. The iPad gets my email in a useful format, and then I can remote desktop straight from the iPad into my machine at work to see what's going on and fix things. There are a lot of other great IT related apps out there too that I have yet to even explore.

    You are not alone pallentx. I am not an Apple fan, PC all the way.. but for me the iPad fits great. If it didn't I would sell it, like I sold my Sony reader and NDS.

    I too find it interesting the IT related apps coming out, even at this early stage of iPad development. I would not have expected it.....

    edit: Oh and pallentx, I'm about 30 miles south of you in Granbury :)

    Well now that I've had my iPad a lil longer, I can say the new hasn't worn off. Today I left the office to run an errand and didn't bring it with me. In a half hour, I needed it three times and didn't have it. I know getting caught without it for 30 minutes having it for a few weeks may not seem like much, but it's amazing just how useful and handy this lil device is.

    I was worried the new would wear off, to my surprise each day it gets more useful to keep with me, the total opposite, and each day I wake up, check put the newest apps while waking up, then get ready for work, grab Lily (yes, she's been named) and head out the door.

    I have a shuffled music playlist that I put on my iPad and truck it to work, use it as a digital photo frame and shuffle about 2 gigs of music during my shift... Not that I REALLY get to hear any music, it's always so damn quiet...

    Anyway, it is with me every second of the day if I can at all help it. I love it.

    Me an my murse, goin' everywhere!
