My name is Bob and I'm a iPadaholic.

I have to have it by my side and in reach when I'm home.:eek::D

iPadaholism is real and can have serious effects on your life and well being, please try to gently ween yourself off with regular daily doses of iPhone and MBP (or MBA) - this will counteract the tremors & withdrawal associated with any attempt at reduction

My wife has a Verizon 64GB iPad LTE. In order to gain access to it to upgrade it to iOS 6 I had to wait up until she went to sleep (11:30pm), run an iCloud backup, run the OTA iOS 6 upgrade, then install all the inevitable app updates, and have it plugged in and charging on her nightstand before she woke up at 6:30am the next morning.

Needless to say it rarely if ever leaves her side.

Does this mean that I can still use my iMac or is it forbidden as well?

Hi my name is Kai. I love my iPad 2 and I get happy feelings when I look at it. It's my one true love. My life my rock.

I've had several iPods, two iPads and four different iPhones, and this iPad 3 is my favorite of them all. Yes, I am addicted.

I love this thing. Oddly enough my wife isn't as addicted. She really enjoys it but uses it way less than me. So I think it balances out my use. I bought both on launch day and she is still getting used to it.

I spend a couple hours on my iPad a day, maybe an hour on my Air, and an hour or so on my iMac, and a good 3hrs on my Nexus phone when at work.

I am well rounded when it comes to use of toys, but not addicted to any one in particular.

When I bought my MBP last week I gave my iPad 3 to my other half and I don't miss it at all (even though it is a very cool thing to have). :D

There are times when I don't realize it's in my hand until someone points it out. Also my ipad gets the left side of the bed and I get the right.

Don't ask me what I would do if it ever left me.. ;)

Yes, it's my hands down favorite device. I have the new iphone 5 and retina MacBook Pro but my iPad 3 gets the most use. I generally use it all day.
