    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!

    Mine is always with me. I went to a cousins party today and it came with me (although I didnt really use it).
    Sadly though it gets more use at work (I'm a Computer Technician) so it never leaves me side at work either.
    What can I say, its just very handy to have!

    I'd love to take it out more but several factors have me cringing at the thought.
    First, I walk with a cane for now and I'm still wobbly on my feet.
    Second, I can be a klutz.
    And third, where is that perfect klutz proof case?

    Just about everywhere

    3G.
    In the: taxi, bus, cafe, hotel, airplane, office, kitchen, car (not while driving of course), sofa, bed, patio, bench outdoors.

    And that was all in the first couple weeks...

    Well, I went on a bike ride with my wife this week and didnt bring the iPad. Its one of the few times I havent had it within reach since I bought it. We ended up on some new trails that go way out in the boonies and got lost. I wished I had found a way to strap it to the bike - maps and GPS would have gotten us to the road home in just a few minutes. We ended up backing out the way we came and took 10X longer getting home.

    So the lesson is, ALWAYS CARRY YOUR IPAD!

    always with me except when in the shower.

    It charges overnight right next to my bed and I take it with my when I leave the house. With the folio case no one even notices that I have one :D

    It's next to me when I sleep and often in the WC. How embarassing, come to think of it.

    Waiting for mine to arrive (where are you, delivery man!?), but once it does it will go with me in my oh-so-manly man bag, along with iPod touch, phone, psp, and camera.

    Mine is with me most of the time. I keep it in a folio case (Incase) so it's protected and not conspicuous. Like some others have posted, I also use it while on the crapper. Multitasking at it's finest.

    I don't bring it with me to a restaurant or bar because I don't want to be tempted to use it with barbecue sauce on my fingers or during a beer pong tournament. :D
