This is my New Member post... I'm a software developer who has spent the last year learning how to do iOS development. I bought an iPad 1 when it first came out so that I could have an actual device to test my programs on. It gets a lot of use by the rest of my family, however. My favorite things to do on the pad: - Debug and test my apps - Read my email, browse the web - Play Carcassonne - Check out Facebook with MyPad+ - Read technical documents with GoodReader (great for programming language reference manuals and research papers) - Read novels with iBooks - Angry Birds (a guilty pleasure) - Learning how to play Go with SmartGo Kifu My wife plays: - Sudoku (a few different apps) - Crosswords (Crux and NYTimes Crosswords) - Alien Glyphs Most of my 'hobby time' these days is working with some partners on a startup company, (Message from moderator: Sorry.
