    I've used my iPad every day since I got it and see no end of use in sight. I barely use any other computers right now and I love my iPad so much now, I don't know if I can go a day without using it...even if it's just for 5 minutes. Also, I've talked 2 other people into getting one and they also love theirs as much as I love mine. I'm wondering if anyone else has used their iPad everyday since they've purchased it.

    Yep, I sure have!!! I still do use the computer, though, too, when I need to do something else like upload images and post-process them. My iPad is my everday go-to machine for email, forum participation and so on, though.

    I KNOW that I'm addicted to mine. I've traded in both of my portable gaming systems along with all of the games. I rarely use my netbook and my iMac sees less action as well :p

    I said I'd never buy an iPad cause I didn't have a use for it.

    Well, I bought one anyway and its damn amazing and I cant go a day without it either. I LOVE my iPad :D

    Assuming you switch off computers, tvs etc that you are not using, the ipad is going to make a lot of difference to your personal electricity use!

    This is good timing, as there are a number of places in the world where reliable 24/7 cheap electricity is going to stop being the norm in the next 2-10 years.

    I'm not addicted, but i do find it funny that everyone around me expects it to be with me and all expect to be able to use it! lol!

    I'm laptop-less this week because of a repair, so its been interesting to see what I ran into issue wise. Of course its been a week of email attachments.....

    But I do love it!

    Yes you are and placing orders in my kingdom. ;)

    I'm addicted too! The iPad is so much more convenient and I absolute love the instant on. My MSI Wind hasn't powered on since Easter and it use to be my around the house computer. I hate the battery life on the Wind and I find the screen size bad for browsing the net.

    One other thing my iPad has allowed me to do is quickly comment/annotate and work on docs/PDF while I commute 45 mins by train for work. By the time I get to work, the ball is already on someone's court and I get to work on my own things. I don't ever bring my 15" Thinkpad home from work and the netbook never leaves the house cos it's too big to carry along with my camera. (I do street photography as a hobby so I never leave home without my camera). The iPad is thin and light enough to share space with my camera in my camera bag. :)

    AND I love using my iPhone flashlight app on the iPad. It's a great portable light box! I can view my B&W negatives / slides properly after picking them up from the lab! Such a multi functional device this is! I love it!

    Im so happy the iPad appears to be a hit, Ive wanted tablets to succeed for about 7 years but until the iPad there was not much sign of this happening.

    I wonder how long before the question 'what will you use it for' fades away from our societies? Although the iphone was a hit from day 1 it still took a while to go completely mainstream.

    I know i'm addicted to it now ...

    I spend 5 days a week in a hotel in the evenings and it makes a perfect device for catching up on news (Early Edition), then surfing, gaming and media ... needs all met...

    I used to spend the night on lappy but since having iPad i've not took it out of my bag once...

    Last Friday, I combined my 2 addictions and made some coke lines on my iPad (with MacRumors on). The product was glowing white. Nice.

    Yeah, because 4.3 inches is so much better than 9 inches. :rolleyes:

    Enjoy your eye strain while reading books and watching movies.

    More portable than a ipad.. with a larger screen than MOST phones. And with more function as a "mobile desktop" than a Ipad...

    So yea I will enjoy it... actually watching movies on the phone is a joy! I dont read..

    LADYHONEYBABE, you ain't alone

    My poor BMB, getting only 20% of the use, and my iPad is carried all over the property.( My Herb shed is on one side of my 2 acres, and the pool on the other, with the house in between) I even got her BrightHouse,(RoadRunner) Lightning Internet Service, so she could connect fast(er), all over the 2 acres.I went to Small Dog Computers, and got a sweet set of Chill Pill speakers, so I could hear her melodious notes poolside.
    She has taught me "thin is in", and "light is right".:eek:
    When Mr Jobs introduces "multitasking" in the first software update, I will have it all;)
    Yes, at 62, I too am totally, head over heels, unabashedly, in love and addicted;):D:cool:

    Why am I not surprised by that last statement?

    And enjoy your 4 inch "mobile desktop", I'm sure you'll get a lot of word processing, spreadsheet generation, and presentation production out of your shiny new Droid phone. :rolleyes:

    You shouldnt be, I dont read, not casually. I read textbooks and tech mags that about it.

    I have my laptop for word processing. Still has more function in 4.3in than my Ipad at 9.7... :cool:
