    ...with your iPad as your sole source of entertainment.

    It's a 16GB wifi model.

    What apps, music, books and videos/movies would you want on it that could keep you occupied for a long stretch of time, in between finding food and shelter, while awaiting rescue?

    For reality's sake, let's assume that somehow you have a solar-powered dohickey that would allow you to charge up you iPad when needed.

    Discuss.

    Forget reality, I'd rather go back in time, say twenty years, with this thing and somehow have an internet feed to the future and go show people how amazing the ipad is!

    The idea is, what apps do you absolutely need and what music and videos could you listen/watch over and over?

    hahaha I like this idea. Even if I was only 7 20 years ago, I can imagine how cool I would have thought it was. Even if we went back like 12-15 years it would have been pretty cool to see all that the Ipad could do way back then!

    To answer the original questions, I would need to have music of every genre, that way I won't get sick of one type. and LOTS of movies. Drama's, thrillers and comedies. Oh and an e-reader app of some sort also.

    But you only have 16GB to do it with.

    For example: My 16GB iPad has 442 songs (including every Beatles song and Glee song available), 496 photos, 81 apps, 1 full-length movie, 4 1-hour TV shows and 1 30-minute TV show and still has 2.5GBs free.

    There will be fresh water and fruit and some wild game. Food will not be a problem.

    The problem is keeping entertained.

    Some Andre Rieu CDs and DVDs and some xxx videos should keep me occupied until the cute blonde swam up onto the beach.

    Dream, dream dream. When I need you... That's a song as well. Sorry! Every time my teacher friend and I say something or someone else does we can't help thinking of a song that matches. It's a music thing, he's a musician and I love music. Yes, we really are that sad!

    No, I perfectly understand. It's normal for us but weird for others. And I love that song as well. The old songs are still the best. I love Audrey Hepburn in that film and also in funny face with Fred Astaire. S'wonderful, s'marvelous. Great song near the end.
