Well my Birthday is December 23rd and wife had no clue what to get me for that and Christmas. I told her an Ipad could take care of both. She wasn't sure which one to buy and I had to pick it out. Good news = we went and bought one. 16+3g. Not planning on putting a ton of movies on there, and 3g comes in handy when traveling and the hotels want to charge $9.99 a night for their Wifi. Yes, some of the business hotels do charge for Wifi and I can't always pick and choose where to stay. Bad news = can't play with it until Dec. 19th when we celebrate my birthday with the kids and I am aloud to open it and play with it. In the meanwhile, reading through these forums about all the apps people have been suggesting. As well as debating whether to update the IOS due to some issues people are saying about the slowness of the Wifi. Anyway, excited and looking forward it.
