    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?
