    I watch two toddlers everyday. I think my Ipad will help me keep my sanity while having to watch cartoons. I'm and avid reader and it will replace my Kindle.

    For me it will replace 2 things that are currently in my briefcase.
    iPod Touch and the "book du jour".

    I too travel extensively and do a lot of flights from LAX - LHR or LAX - SIN, so having movies or TV shows to see after I seem to have been through the video library on the airlines after a few flights will be great. I am looking forward to using the Internet function now that WiFi on airplanes is becoming more and more a reality daily but for me 3G is a requirement as I just always want to be able to connect not just 80 - 90% of the time when traveling.

    I ordered the 3G 64MB model on the first day you could so hopefully will have mine within the next 10 - 15 days. I already have the Apple cover and stand/keyboard now just need to unit to get going.

    I've already downloaded 6 or 7 apps (free ones for now) as well as the apps I already have for the iPod touch........is it the end of April yet?????

    Sure they do. And that is a good point. Carry some with you in the trunk of your car if you need to be out in really bad weather to protect the iPad from water damage. I have seen men with zip locked electronics dump a canoe and get everything back in working order after some frantic diving and grouping around.

    My question is will the iPad float?

    I want the iPad do for me my day-2-day computing stuff as much as possible.
    I want it to replace my MacBookPro for 80% of my day. But I already know, that this will not happen before fall (OS4.0).

    And because we are using Lotus Notes in our company, that will be another "hot" topic.

    Currently I bought a 32GB model, but I'm considering a 64-3G, once it's out in Europe and I do have some experience with the iPad (which I hopefully pick up from customs tomorrow).

    hoping to use mine for assistive technology

    Hi

    I am Kati from UK. I wondered if you would mind me picking your brains for info as you already have the iPad over in the US!

    I am hoping to get an iPad when it comes out here at end of May. I want to use it for Assistive Technology, it will have the Proloquo2go text-to-speech app on.

    I was wondering if anyone can tell me if you can alter screen sensitivity on iPad so its not over sensitive and wouldn't activate a button/icon I caught accidentally whilst trying to press a different one? (I have difficulties with co-ordination)

    I also need a tough case just in case its dropped off knee (am wheelchair user), one that also has a stand would be good so I can prop it up on a table indoors to communicate with or have it on lap outdoors I would like pink.

    Anyone know what the screen glare is like for outside as touchscreens are not usually good outdoors? (I can never see Nintendo DS screen to use in garden!)

    Thanks

    Kati

    As an American I like the fact that you used the word "whilst".

    I do not own an Ipad yet as it is slated to arrive "Late April" AKA April 30th, but that is a whole other story. What I can say is that I have seen an Ipad out in the wild and the glare can be severe. However this is often the case with many glass screen devices. The application of an appropriate screen protector can rectify this to an extent. The issue is most apparent in direct sunlight.

    The touch sensitivity? Great question I hope someone can chime in. A Google search did not turn up any results.

    In regards to mounting your Ipad. I would suggest taking a look at ram-mounts.com here is a direct link Apple iPad Mounts

    I use Ram mounts to mount a GPS to my Harley, Laptop to my Treadmill, TV on my deck. They make an excellent product and can mount anything to anything else.

    If there exists a tendency for things to fall off your lap I would be very careful with the Ipad, even in a case. I have seen a number of websites demonstrate that it can easily get damaged from a 3-4 feet fall on carpet.

    Good luck and I hope you get the Ipad to work out for you. At my organization the Ipad is up for consideration as an assistive technology tool. Our primary concern is durability.
