    I don't mean an iPad guide.
    What I mean is a guide showing all the amazing ways you can use your iPad. I read post of people that use the iPad in combination with apps to manage task I'd love to do, but I can't imagine how that's done. I guess I'm taking about a guide that shows you all the ways you can integrate the iPad into your daily lives more than just browsing the web, checking email and watching videos. I want my iPad to be the monster device that handles it all! I just don't know how to get it there, yet. I'm learning and picking up more every day. I think it's just amazing the things you can accomplish with the iPad. I hardly ever touch my laptop or netbook any longer. Simple and Easy is the iPad. I think that should be in Apples next TV ads! :D

    How can someone produce a guide for what you are asking? Everyone's usage and experiences are different. I am a meteorologist and my uses would be much different from someone who is an author or an engineer.

    It's all about what Apps you choose to use.

    Wow...You took that a little more serious than I meant. It was kind of a wish, you know, something that doesn't exist, but would be nice if it did. Genie in a bottle kind of thing.

    If you're not looking for this:

    http://www.apple.com/ipad/guided-tours/

    Then you want something that TELLS you how to use your ipad? Shouldn't you figure that out yourself? Making the ipad personal is well...kind of personal.

    Jakrox...

    I think the best thing for you to do is to spend an hour or so trolling the iTunes Apps section looking for various Apps that would either interest you or help you do whatever it is you do more efficiently. You'll get there...

    I know how to use the features of the iPad. I was remarking more about the ways apps, and everyday task and tricks people use are interesting and I wish I had that knowledge.

    Thanks... That's usually do every day. For instance, I've learned to use an RSS reader instead of going to each individual site for my daily fixes of certain sites.

    The best option is to trawl the net for iPad tutorials - there must be quite a big stock of them built up by now, and a fair share of those would feature utilizing the iPad and available Apps in interesting and productive ways. Poss. YouTube etc as well.

    The major Apple-oriented mags will probably cover similar tips and tricks.

    Plus, might be worth checking bookstores - paper and virtual - may be some O'Reilly type books covering new ways to use it.

    Time and experience will play a part though - I'm still discovering amazing new things about the iPad every day. It'll also help in narrowing down your searches for the specific info and tips you're after.

    Hope this helps! I'll post a later reply as and when I come across stuff along the lines you're looking for.

    I never thought i would buy an iPad, but since Apple is going to have my MBP for about 2 weeks, I figured i would try one out.

    Man this thing is pretty cool. I hadn't even touched one before last Wednesday. EA had (may still have one) a sale on all their games. I picked up yahtzee, scrabble, simcity deluxe, battlefield bad company 2 (even though it is for the iPhone/iPod), all for .99 each.

    I would like to find an app that works amazing for eBay. I eBay quite a bit, and the "regular" eBay site works perfect, EXCEPT for the little fact that i cannot add a description. For some reason, ebay doesn't recognize the iPad...
