    today i was rideing b.a.r.t. back to where i had parked my car instead of driveing into the city and dealing with traffic .. i was sitting next to a gentlemen and he was useing his ipad and when i pulled out my ipad he looked over and saw me on my ipad and we stuck up converstion about the ipad and how we use them .. he basic said that he use it more now than his laptop along with fact that he does not have to carry as much extras with him as he would with the laptop ..the one thing he said he loved about the ipad was the fact it lightwieght and it can be used in a limited fuctions of what he needs on the road ..as he put it emails and light websurfing and keeping track of things on his job projects as the train was comeing to our stop we just sit there and talked about the diff fuctions of the ipad ..

    so do think you will see more of the ipads in the business world .

    The correct word is "seems" as in "it seems everyone"

    The second correct word is "using" as in "everyone is using"

    The third correction is " it seems everyone IS using" not HAS using"

    The fourth correction is the use of "an" not "a"

    The fifth correction is "driving" not "driveing"

    The sixth correction is "riding" not "rideing"

    The seventh correction is "lightweight" not "lightwieght"

    The eight correction is " so do think you" is nonsense and not english.

    Are you illiterate?

    It all ready is happening I jhave 7 business associates 3 in it others in sales whom no longer carry laptops with them. One in fact called to do excited that filemaker is now available as it is one of the main programs he needed. As more applications come on board it will be accepted more.
    I also believe Apple will release either 1 or 2 different size ipads maybe by end of year .

    it was kind of funny with me in my blues jeans and t-shirt and hikeing and him in his suit and tie and dress shoes sitting there talking about the diff programs and ideas behind the ipad along how apple seams to be on there game about useing a device for business and personal use ..

    for the world of business is going to taken by storm in the next few years by the advancement of the world of the smart phones and ipad style tablets where you no longer need to carry a laptop on business trips it can and will be done by combo of the two devices..

    Relax, dude. It's obvious that English is not his first language. You understood what he was saying, did you not? Just imagine if you had limited knowledge of Mandarin and you were posting on a Chinese website. Many people would be too scared to post, precisely because of people like you :)

    I do not make it a point to correct people's grammar or spelling, because none of us are perfect. But I do have to say that attempting to use proper english is a sign of respect for those whom you are corresponding with.

    I am no grammar nazi and if it was a few mistakes then yeah his response would have been way out of line. However, that is some pretty bad writing. As a former ESL teacher I cringe when I see Americans that write like a 3 year old and former ESL students at 6 years old that write better than most American high school kids.

    I seem to remember a quote that begins with, "People in glass houses shouldn't..." Does anybody remember the rest of that quote?

    With all due respect, it appears that many people don't even use spell checkers so I sincerely doubt that the people who probably need this app the most, probably won't be spending $1.99 on this app.

    I've never corrected anyone for bad/poor english or grammer but that person has taken the english language to a new low. Maybe he doesn't own an Ipad but gets a kick out of writing that gibberish.

    I have yet to see anyone using an iPad "out in the wild". We have bought 4 here at work for various people in the company, and I know a couple of people that bought their own. As far as I know, none of them carry their iPad on a daily basis. They take them traveling on the road, but I'm not sure what else they do with them. 3 or the people that have them here at work got them not having a clue what they were going to do with it - it was just the latest thing and it looked cool. One has already told me he hardly uses it anymore - just around the house sometimes.

    I hope they catch on for business use. They really need to address the lacking in the office apps category though. I think it will get there eventually, but I think its a big part of the entertainment reputation the iPad has right now. This thing could be a serious business machine, but it needs the software tools.
