I was sitting at the car dealership waiting for my car to be serviced.

    Of course, I was happily surfing etc on my iPad (they have wi-fi so I did not even need my 3G). One of the service techs asks me about it and pretty soon I am giving a couple of them a demonstration of all the awesomeness. I think I sold a couple more iPads.

    A couple minutes later another guy comes in to drop his car off and asks about the iPad and I give him the demo too.

    A few minutes after that another of the service guys comes by and asks me about it. He says he usually uses his wife's laptop to surf etc and asks what a laptop will do that an iPad won't do. It actually wasn't that easy a question to answer. I am pretty sure he wants to stop borrowing his wife's laptop.

    Most of them asked about the data plan.

    This thing really sells itself.

    You're a better man than I. I don't want strangers interrupting me and taking interest in what I posess. I don't give demos to anyone but family or friends.

    I've done the same a few times when I first got mine. It usually happens on the plane with whoever I happen to be sitting next to. I've noticed that dwindle quite a bit though. My guess is that there are so many out there now that the "wow" factor of something people have never seen isnt there as much. Of course, guess it depends on where you are. Probably on the average, people in an airport I guess are more likely to be connected to new technology than people working in a garage. I still love and think this thing is the coolest every day I use it... Truly happy with it...:ipad-keyboard:

    I don't mind when folks ask about it. I usually just show them a couple programs and it costs nothing. Some of the curious are attractive women.

    The iPad is a personal device. Do you really want stranger's finger prints all over it?
