Should I buy Apple digital A/V adapter for my iPad 2?

I've been looking at the Apple digital A/V adapter for quite some time and I'm debating whether I should get it or not. I really like how it looks but I don't know how I would use it besides playing Real Racing 2 and other games, watching YouTube videos, and Skyping. I can't imagine other uses for it since I already have Netflix on my HDTV and I don't do many presentations.

Do you think I should buy it? Is it worth $39? How else could I use it?

I was just looking at this myself, I think it'd be a handy thing to have around.

It's under $37 on Amazon...so tempting. But I don't want to buy it if I won't use it. iPad 3 ft away is as big as my HDTV 8 ft away.

It's a handy thing to keep in your bag but ever since 5.0.1 Video Mirroring and Apple TV, that little dongle has rarely seen the light of day.

Highjacking the thread for just a second.

Is there a device, other than the Apple TV, that will Video Mirror the iPad 2 Wierlessly?

Something like this, minus the unsightly 30 Pin Dongle.
