    I'm using it in place of making Xerox copies when I do my research for graduate studies in History. I just take a picture of the page I'm using. so much nicer and cheaper too!

    I get daily reports of all of my pending orders. I use them to plan my workload for up to three weeks in advance. Customer service has improved dramatically as a result.

    What I didn't expect from my iPad: My own customized in-flight entertainment (catching up on saved podcasts, watching movies, etc.), allowing my Grand-kids to watch selected children programs on my IPad while I watch my own selections on the "big TV", managing recipes, listening to audio books on-the-go ... just to name a few.

    One thing I never thought would be as good on the iPad is being able to play my guitar and actually record a decent quality track. I've used computer amp simulators that sounded OK but on the ipad it sounds pretty close to real. Living in an apartment I can't really play my tube amps since they would knock the neighbors out of their beds! With my ipad & the iRig adapter & various amp simulators I can get a decent practice in without disturbing the neighbors.

    Checking traffic density on the freeway before heading home (using beat the traffic). The freeway traffic camaras don't show the true picture and the radio traffic reporters don't cover the way I go home... LOVE IT for that!!! I can quickly tell whether to jump on the freeway or take some other alternate route

    This will be much better on the 3 - as you'll be able to read text much easier when taken with the 5MP camera on the high res screen. I did not think of the iPad as a digital copy machine, but that is really a good use for it.
