    Bedridden so I use mine 2 write code

    Being bedridden but a hardware and software eng/nut I had a minimum of 3 computers surrounding my bed I bought my iPad (bought 2)
    2 read books and 2 move my computers from my bedroom using my iPad 2 access them in my computer room 2 write code. But since flash doesn't run on the iPad unless jail broke (I will when the dust settles 4.xx firmware) icant use the iPad 2 watch videos or interact with my granddaughter on vantage so I have 2 keep my eeepc near .

    I used the iPad to get a new job today and it worked!

    I had something like 2000 pictures of furniture I built on the iPad. During the interview I took it out and shoved It in front of the boss and showed him how to browse through. He spent a half hour looking through and asking me questions.

    I got out of the office with the job and a higher salary that was offered. I start next week...:D

    I certainly did not expect I'd use the iPad to help in getting a job!

    I use the Xfinity application from Comcast to set my DVR recordings, look for the name of the shows that are on and even change to that channel. Cool!

    The funniest of things I used my iPad for was viewing picture slides!:D



    Turn the iPad to it's brightest setting, open a blank page in Pages, turn the room lights off and put you slides ON the iPad screen...:p
