    No, I don't nor do I intend to. My iPad 2 is a 16GB and I don't want to waste precious space by loading my iTunes library on to it when I already have my library on my iPhone and my iPod.

    No. I have no need/ desire to do so. It's on my iPhone and it's on my iMac. Those are the only two places I need my music.

    I do, I like to play music while I do housework. My iPad is much easier to cart around than a stereo.

    :eek: You still consider a stereo as an alternative??? Then this is going to blow your mind!!! It's even easier to cart around than an iPad!

    *raises hand* me! me! I do :)

    I have my iPad next to me at work 40 hours a week with my headphones in and the music going. I also listen to music on it every night while I draw.

    I don't. I haven't even put any music on it. I stick to my MBP and my iPod for music.

    No music here either. The iPhone fits all my speaker docks--the iPad would have to be cabled to them. The phone is just a lot more practical to use for that sort of thing in terms of portability as well. And as others have said, I bought a 16 GB knowing I could get away with less space if I didn't plan to put music on it.

    I do. I use AirPlay and stream my music to the audio system.
    Recently I plug it to my car studio since I sold my iPhone 4 (Waiting for the iPhone 5) ;)

    Very rarely. I listen alot on my iPhone and don't store any music on my iPad. Once in a while I will listen to RinseFM, but not very often.

    I listen to audio through my iPad all the time, usually through iTunes home sharing or Audio Galaxy. Sometimes streaming radio.

    I use the iPod app every day, while I'm walking. Also regularly listen to TuneIn radio at my office.

    No, the speakers on the iPad (at least iPad ver 1) are horrible, and i only use headphones if I'm out and about, when the iPad isn't practical. Decent speakers are one of only a few things I'd change about the iPad.

    Yeah I do. I'm fortunate enough to have a 32gb version, so space is ok. But I only listen to it at work, and switch to smth more portable (my Samsung mobile phone or my iPod Touch) when I'm out.

    I listen to a lot of music at work and dont want to drain my phone battery too fast, so that's a good workaround. Plus I also use my iPad for other stuff at work, so the all-in-one approach makes sense...

    Yes, at work or in my hotel rom after a long day of work. It is great to relax a bit without having something hanging from your ears, I use the iPod is for the gym. And yes, the only problem is that it takes a lot of memory space.
