    seem to put down their iPad. Don't get me wrong, I love, love, love mine but I must be missing the boat............I use it to read books, read emails, peruse iPadForums.net, surf the net and get on Facebook. What apps don't I have that will keep me from putting it down? Is it the gamers that have them "attached" at the hip? The iPad is a wonderful piece of equipment but haven't had a problem putting it down if I need to do a chore or go to work (of course it goes with me.) Just curious...............

    Where to begin...:D

    Well, for starters, I pretty much have instant messaging on all the time, so if it beeps I have to tend to it. I'm on summer vaycay in between degrees, so there's not a lot to do work wise...

    When I wake up, I check e-mails, I Facebook. I read the national post. All on my iPad. Then I go and do busy work, and invariable someone sends me a YouTube video, or asks me a question. And if I have NOTHING else to do, I watch something on Puffin or Netflix to keep me amused. That's how I use it as much as I do...

    I can't seem to put my new stylus down so I just keep tapping on whatever is available on the screen. It just makes me feel good... ;)

    Read books, remote control my tv, email, surf, Facebook, twitter, photos, notes, todo, calendar, access my desktop, games.... Uh everything. I hate when I have to stop and use my actual desktop! And I only do that because I need to access some programs that I don't have on here!

    Use Splashtop to access your desktop from your Ipad. :D
    If it's a Mac use Team Viewer.

    At the moment, the Just Mobile Alupen feels good. However, if you haven't used any of the others, the Alupen is likely to feel huge. Overall though, if I had to choose one from the ones I have (Targus, Boxwave, Alupen), I think that that would be it.

    I am really getting a kick out of these answers. I like the term "toyfriend.". I will must keep checking back here to see what everyone is doing with theirs. The only thing work related I can do on my iPad is check emails. We are blocked from remote access to our work computer for now until they get it figured out. Since we are a brokerage firm there are all sorts of security issues that need to be addressed before they rollout the remote access. Lucky for me I am on the list for the pilot group.

    I have watched a tv show on here and it was great!!! We travel to our weekend getaway which is about two hours from home a couple times a month so I can see my 3G getting some use.

    Again I am loving the responses. Some of them wear me out just reading them!!!
