I'm a poker nut so I can't wait to start playing poker on the iPad. Bwin have a native iPhone app and there are also a couple of web based poker apps that I'm looking forward to trying.

Hi You need to get AT&T, Verizon to use the internet. I use AT&T but you have to look up your local service also. Then you start an account, hook up to the internet. They will explain it all to you. Getting iPad connected is another thing. I had to get a company in to set up my wifi so I could use my iPad. I'm not technie that is for sure. Just call an internet provider or go to their website. Hope that helps you a little.

I use & take my iPad everywhere I like to play games, surf the web, read & send emails, plus I coach football so I use it for my playbooks.

It will most likely replace my laptop as my traveling companion when I have to take short trips for work and don't need all the power of my laptop and I'm sure I'll load up a movie or 2 when I'm on vacation. Come to think of it, a movie would be nice to have sometimes when I'm camping. When the weather turns bad, it's nice to have a distraction.

I use my iPad all day long-literally. I use it as an alarm clock since my 'real' clock's snooze feature broke. On the clock display I have current weather and temperature so I know how to dress for work.

I check Flipboard to get my facebook and news fix before work, and have enable news pushes so I know if something is going on globally.

TuneIn Radio gets me up to date on local news while USA Today, CNN, and npr keep me up to speed with national and global info. I use wi-fi most but have 3G so I check my Data Usage especially with the new tiered data plans.

I currently use Quickoffice, Dropbox, and Pentultimate for work apps. For reminders, I'm trialing Next! and Sorted for to-do lists throughout the day. If I need to print something I have Printer Pro at the ready.

At the end of the day I have my Epicurious, AllRecipes and The Recipe Box for dinner ideas and can email lists to my Blackberry for a quick run into the grocery store on my way home.

I read Time Magazine on my iPad and have Zinio for my Macworld subscription. I use Netflix for intant viewing and have both Kindle for iPad and iBooks.

My laptop (heavy and clunky by comparison) is now left behind and used for dvd watching in the evenings when I can't find something I want to watch on Netflix.

I'm a designer, so I use my iPhone, iPad and other mobile devices for web design along with the regular stuff like emails, web, etc.

Haven't really been reading much, not really a book worm type.

My gosh - for everything a pc does. I no longer take my pc on the road with me. I can bring up power point presentations and photo presentations instantly. Rather than waiting for a pc to "boot up". I track health info instantly and e mail and any thing else available

Need to fix the adope issue. Other than that it's great
