    Doing a lot of work around the house for the next few days. Decided to do a bit of grilling today for wife's family. One sister brought the granddaughters, three teenagers 15-17 years old. About mid way through the afternoon, I was doing something on my iPad. All of a sudden, all I could hear was "Is that an iPad? Can I see it?". Needless to say, between them and my BIL, I didn't get my hands on it until they left.

    Ha ha. Same thing happens to me. A couple of friends now want to get their own, but until then, they ask me to bring mine along for them to use. Others ask to see it, but nukes I know you, that ain't happening...you can look over my shoulder, but no touchy touchy. Lol

    Drives me nuts. People come up to me in the airport and places all the time and bug me. You're nicer than me though, when people ask if they can see it, I tell them sure...go buy one.

    I'm 14 years old, but when I get my iPad I'm only letting my friends look at it and on the slight occurrences where I DO let them touch the iPad, they can only touch what I tell them to touch and they can only touch something as long as the iPad is in my hands.

    People bug me all the time about mine, it's new, it's bound to happen. My iPad helped me get a job a couple weeks ago...I went in for an interview, and they wanted to see my reel so I pulled out my iPad and played it for them. Now every time the VFX sup comes to my desk and sees me using it he goes "that's so cool" lol. I'm sure he'll break down and get one too...lol.

    Well, I am a teen, and it's my iPad when it arrives. :D My mum also paid some money towards it so she will be allowed to use it sometimes, only when I say, mind.

    Same happens with my 3GS at school... gets on my nerves so much.
    they call me stingy, so I say 'Aren't you the stingy one not having bought one yourself and trying to use mine all the time?' That usually gets them :)

    When the Kindle was introduced, mine attracted a lot of attention when I brought it out. With the iPad, I'm more circumspect when I use it in public and more standoffish in my demeanor to discourage at-large requests.

    I have two daughters, 12 and 14, who managed to save enough to buy iPod Touches for themselves after drooling over mine for almost a year. Now they want iPads. I got mine 4 days ago and it has already become the new unit for monetary analogies: My older daughter is babysitting this summer and she said "I will make enough to buy 2 iPads and still have some left over for an iTunes card!"

    We were all three playing Pocket Legends yesterday and they really liked the extra screen real estate on the iPad.

    As for letting other people play with my iPad, it feels almost like letting someone use my toothbrush. But then, I'm an only child and don't share well:D

    I am really protective and considerate with all of my electronics and anything I really like in general, so I think when I get my iPad the only people that I will let see it are my parents and girls that I like ;) They liked my iPhone a lot when I got it. Even when this thing becomes obsolete, I am going to keep it in pristine condition.

    I like collecting electronics. haha.

    My husband is the one who's always telling everyone that I have an ipad and to bring it where ever we go. We went to a bbq last night and everyone there was really interested in it. I don't think they realized that it could do so much and that you can see so much more than on an ipod or iphone.
