    Interesting article. I do agree that Its a nice way to relax and keep yourself busy. All I pretty much do throughout the day is Watch movies and web browse.

    Yup, seems anymore I do not leave a room on my house without my iPad in hand even though my iPhone is in my pocket. So spoiled.

    I use mine pretty much every day, but I find myself using it less and less. Maybe it's me, but the games are starting to seem like "same old" and I find it much easier to browse the web and do e-mail on a laptop or desktop.

    For me it is a landslide, mostly because I hate the whole concept of smart phones. I have never owned one and if I ever do it will be because of music. I don't mind texting on the iPad but on my phone I have sent a grand total of 91 texts... ever. The screen is just too small.

    Well there is a difference of opinions. I find my phone is much more convenient as I always have it in hand. It's become like an extension of my brain. I'm even using IPF app on my phone to type this. For reading news in bed I find it much easier to do it on my phone with one hand to hold it and my thumb to navigate.

    The iPad I like for the more detailed items.

    See and I hate the idea of a phone always on me. Mine sits in a drawer unless I leave the house. Having a smart phone means there is always some to do and you are always accessible. No thanks.

    A third opinion. For me the iPhone is my iPad on the go. Do all the same things with it, as most of the time the iPad is too big to bring with me, although it is perfect at home. I don't know how I managed without either one.

    I agree. I love having my iphone with me specially days I'm out and bored. I do pretty much the same things I do on my ipad on my phone. Expect watch movies. I prefer my ipad for that.

    I hardly ever use my laptop anymore unless it's something I can't do on my iPad which is extremely rare.:)

    Notebook computers and even minis are not good "leisure" devices. They are hot, heavy, and loud. When in the easy chair or bed the tablet is an easy choice.

    I use both my phone and by tablet. I do prefer the tablet for most stuff, but when out and about the phone is easier to use. I rarely use it to with a web browser, though. there are plenty of apps that pull info down off the web and serve it up better than a web browser. Using the apps for this forum on the phone works well, but whenever I can, I go to the tablet. The tablet is more useful for most of the stuff I do, except when I'm moving around. I especially prefer to use my tablet for navigation, but if I am out and about, then the phone provides a more quick and dirty option as I don't have to mount it. I don't make many calls on my phone...it is more like a pocket computer. I do think the article applies to me, though. I do feel a stronger connection to the tablet than the phone, but I have to admit I enjoy having both. And I like the fact that the iPad is pretty much a big iPhone or iPad Touch. :)

    And I still use both a desktop and a laptop!

    I'm noticing how I hardly go on a computer anymore since being a owner of a ipad. I only go on it for club pogo and to burn movies.

    I'm with ya. That's why I have a Tracfone and it only goes with me when it absolutely has to. This concept of being able to get a hold of someone no matter where they are or what they are doing is almost scary. How did people ever survive way back when? :D

    I received a very warm and heartfelt text from my sister last week. Call me old-fashioned but it felt hollow. A phone call would have been so much nicer.

    Back on track, if I am going to text the only device I want to do it on is my iPad.

    What about FaceTime? Have you done that with your sister?
