I had my iPad for about 6 months and I have enjoyed the device very much, I am a computer consultant in Legacy Systems. I use the iPad as an eBook reader and I have like 40 mainframe manuals so at alone has made this device worth the money. I recently got GarageBand for the iPad and I think is a great application, I would like to learn more on the overall use of the iPad and specifically on GarageBand. I am learning the android system because of java for my job, and I love the possibilities it has. I like to learn to program the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad but apple charges a bit much for things, and as a developer I like the open systems initiative, this is in no way to put down the apple development environment is just that I can not afford it now.
