    I absolutely love it. I have the 64gb 3G one with a £15 pm 10gb data tariff with "3" and I'm in love I love being able to surf the full web (minus flash of course) and type extremely cosy in my car while my gf does the Xmas shopping for me. I have the only driving licence in the household in case people think I'm being shovenistic. I love how easy it is to type on.

    Get out your car and help your girl friend with the shopping instead of playing with your toys!

    Meanwhile, guys in the mall are smiling at, offering to help with packages, and talking to your girlfriend since you aren't there. Enjoy that cozy car :)

    Meanwhile... at the bat cave!


    Yeah but you did say "the" shopping, sounds like all of the shopping rather than shopping for "you".

    And the fact that your name is SilentLoner and that you are in love with your ipad which you stated while in the same sentence you mentioned your girlfriend who did not seem to get as much a nice comment.

    I dunno man... girls pick up on this stuff... maybe one day you too will be replaced by a gadget!

    Yeah I went there..

    But Enjoy your iPad :p it is a cool device

    Play on your new toy, you'll only hold her shopping back. Get your use out of it, sooner or later she'll claim it as 'hers'.

    The iBooks store is ok but there is a much better choice in the Kindle app.


    I've seen it a lot, the ipad becomes "hers". The spineless man then buys another one. :cool:

    Pages, to start with, for basic word processing and page layout. I use this for all my class handouts, assignments, correspondence, et al.

    iCab is a better browser than Safari. Both are built on WebKit, but iCab has tabs, file downloading (and limited uploading), rapid in-page navigation, and many other features to speed up online research and the like.

    Dropbox.

    Articles is a nice front end for Wikipedia.

    iBooks -- not so much for the bookstore as for use as a general .PDF and .epub reading and organizing tool. Goodreader is also pretty awesome, though with so many features that it takes a bit of time to learn.

    There are a gazillion notebook or note-taking apps. Everyone has their faves. I like Chapters, IAWriter, VoodooPad and SimpleNote, each of which has some unique quirky advantage over the others.

    I am not an organized person but daughter swears by a pricey organizer/ planner app called Things, and also likes iStudiez Pro.

    Have fun!

    Well congrats with your new toy, I'm sure you'll love it in a certain way especially if you find apps of your interest.

    So what.

    If you are so concerned about your relationship that you can't let your partner do the shopping then you have bigger issues that need fixing.
