    Not lazy but more informed. I don't have to wait for a computing session to find info because the iPad is never far away. Then I never have to jot down or forget a possible search ever, all thanks again to the ever present iPad.
    With 3G we can maximize a sunday nowhere drive to include activities and visits on the fly. That's totally brilliant!

    Rubbish, I was born lazy! A veritable monument to the law of conservation of energy.
    Perhaps thats why I like my iPad......

    I wouldn't say lazy. It is one more thing to carry with me so that I am always working. I would say that is the opposite of lazy.

    I agree with you. The iPad makes us more efficient at researching.

    Maybe they mean it as a lazy researcher? Instead of going the long way we choose the shortest...

    I mean...it makes me lazy only when I'm already being lazy. Example...I'll be sitting on my couch watching tv and want to check my fantasy football team out. Now I don't have to get up and go to my computer! :D

    I don't blame electronics for me being fat so let's not start with that crap, get over it!!!

    As for the topic at hand if I want to be lazy at that moment then it just makes it more fun!

    It didn't make me any lazier then I already am. I just switched from moderating with my Droid while watching television at night to the iPad. Makes it much easier.

    I also moderate at Droid Forums.net and it's a much bigger Forum, hence more moderation is needed. iPad is perfect for this. Easier to type on. Easier to read. And if I do have to use mod tools they are much more accessible with the iPad.

    in my personal way of thinking i do not think it makes you lazy at all ..i think it extends behind the normal way of doing things at the desktop or laptop computer set up ..

    it allows you do some much more on the ipad to control the tv to opening and closeing windows to checking the security cameras outside all from the comfort of your easly chair..

    now if could just learn to make a sandwich and bring it to me i would be in love with it ..

    That is what the spouse is for.

    PS: Notice, ladies, I didn't say "wife." Works both ways.

    The ipad actually makes me more active. I think the music programs on here may be part of it but it inspires me to make music and also to be on top of my emails cause of how much more enjoyable they are on here than a laptop or pc.

    Does not apply to me. I am not a lazy person. But iPad sure is very helpful to my daily tasks.

    Hmm were you born lazy or are you a self made person?
    Regardless I'm sure your laziness hasn't suddenly appeared in the last six months :)

    For me it does make me lazy...

    For example... With the new apple remote app, when I launch it it turns my computer on automatically, then I can control it with remote desktop without moving from my chair... Or I can use my mobile mouse app as a trackpad to control my computer.... I know this is not a good thing, I don't like being lazy but with technology these days it's hard not to be.

    P.S please try this..... Connect the apple remote app to your iTunes account on your Mac or PC... Then turn your computer off, then launch your remote app on your ipad or iPhone or iPod touch.... Does it turn your computer on? Because mine does, I'm not sure how... But it does, must be something to do with the wake-on-LAN setting in my BIOS on the motherboard
