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.
