    I just got an iPad2 (fist Apple device" and am kinda Love/Hate right now...BUT...leaning toward LOVE. The whole "follow the Apple rules" thing is kinda anal, but the whole "loosey-goosey does ennythin and everythin" PC world is kinda schizo, so... I can do so many more useful things with the PC but the Apple does what it does SO WELL. (I realize the iPad isn't a full blown Mac, btw)
    My fun is going to come while I learn to use my iPad2 in (perfect?) harmony with XP and Win7.
    I love a challenge.

    Sorting out all these friggin apps!
    Geez.

    Having fun, though.

    My favorite thing has been "Facetime", so far. Seeing and speaking with my loved ones so far away.

    So, hello everyone, how y'all are?

    Welcome. You know if Mr. Jobs hadn't called it an iPad, Apple could have named it the "Whimsy".
