    I have been known to purchase a moderate amount of electronic equipment, usually without comment, the iPad was commented on "You bought one of those too?" in a not very friendly tone. This may help when I tell her we NEED a 3G model.

    I saw the picture on another site and saw the potential to use the idea for my "presentation".

    My girl is just used to me buying things like this all the time. She just assumed I would.

    The best way to tell her you bought one is to bring her her own also.

    But maybe she isn't very tech oriented. My husband isn't, although I had him play with mine and he likes it but he doesn't want one for himself.

    When I pull myself off the ground and the divorce lawyer got done with me, the iPad would be the only thing I had left.

    My wife has a 14" iBook that will not last forever. It is our only computer that cannot run Snow Leopard. My thinking is that after using the iPad for a while, I may replace her iBook with an iPad. If she does not like it, we'll go to a MacBook Pro.

    My wife is a Family Doc - and she's been watching me through this whole iPad experience (still don't have mine - waiting for 3G). She came to me last night wanting me to update her ePocrates databases on her 4 year old Palm Treo. I showed her my new case (all I have to brag about) and she said "I doubt the iPad will do me any good". I bet the first time I install ePocrates and some Doc software on my iPad and show her - I'll have to fight her to get it back ;o) We've got a good friend who is a Psychologist and we placed our orders together. She's already figured out a half dozen ways to use it in her practice.

    awesome! a little massage oil, some Enigma playing in the background, some expensive wine.......

    Heck, after all that, you could go and buy a 27" IMAC for every room in the house and get no grief.
