Before we iterate all available information, have you looked on the official iPad website yet?

Anyway, in short, you can almost do anything you want with it, if you know its shortcomings in those regards, you do not need a subscription service, you can create shopping lists, you can download almost any data onto your iPad from a Mac or Windows based computer, via Dropbox for example.

you can do as much as the apps allow you to, so just search the net for ipad apps that do what you want the ipad to do, like a shopping list app etc. Aside from that the default apps are for social networking, music, movies, and the browser. Everything else you need some app to do it, for example I can use my ipad to plan a flight with an app called ForeFlight it's really good for pilots and the best app i've seen for that purpose.

so in short it can do a lot depending on what you need, it is limited by apple to use iTunes to buy more music and movies but there are ways around that too.
