    I have not changed my signature since I started using an iPad. I find it funny how some people find it offensive that I don't remove that sentence from my signature. So the question is: Do you use the default signature, or have you changed it to something else?

    I only use it when I want to signal that I'm on the go and therefore not responding as fully as I otherwise would. Beyond that, I don't see the point of it.

    I turn them off. I see absolutely no point in divulging how or where I sent my e-mail from. I don't care if you use it, I can't see being mad at something like that.

    Signature lines are stupid. Signature lines that announce your device doubly so.

    Why not. Nothing wrong in letting the receiver know that information.
    Privacy freaks much?

    Removed from iPad, and iPhone....Don't like people knowing which I'm using...I think when I got the iPad 1 I used it for about one day.

    But what's the general point in letting the receiver know?

    Showing off is fun, what's the point of having an iPad if I can't remind my friends I'm better than them? ;)

    My signature is consistent from device to device. No one care what you are using when replying to an email, it's all about speed. I am not always in the studio but I'd like my Clients to feel that I'm available to them if they need me. Perhaps I'll change it to "prototype" and see if I get a response...

    And yet you have all your devices listed at the bottom of every forum post? Could you explain the difference?

    I like having it there. If I say something way out of whack and don't catch it before I send it out, at least then the recipient knows it was an auto correct thing, not me being weird.

    That awkward moment when your wife didn't tell you that she bought an iPad, and replies to one of your emails and it says, "Sent from my iPad." That would suck.

    Anyway, I kept the signature.

    First, it's there by default. I wouldn't set it by myself. Why should I change/remove it anyways?
    Also, I like letting my friends know where I'm writing emails from. Where's the problem?

    Free marketing for Apple. It's like those people having the AAA sticker on the bumpers of their car.

    I work at a port for a living and couldn't care less if you sent your work based email from an iPad, Dell, iPhone or whatever. It does little to assist me in an email query. My primary computer is a Panasonic Toughbook and not once have I felt the need to share I'm using it in an email signature. :eek:

    On a forum such as this I love seeing what people are using and I think it is good to see what people currently own to see if their advice is worthy. If someone does have a random query about Windows Phone 7 for instance, I'd always look more into those that are using the platform at the moment (not that I'd ignore anyone not using it).

    Great question though.

    Ever have so many Apple devices that you don't remember what iDevice you used to send the email originally?

    In Microsoft Exchange I can tell if the e-mail was sent from a idevice from the the e-mail formatting. It's actually kind of annoying reading those e-mails from my iphone because you have to zoom in to read the text.

    I removed it. It sounds silly, especially as some people don't realise that it's an automatic signature. I imagine some people would be like "why the hell do I care he sent it from his iPad".

    Mine says 'Made the move to Mac, never looking back.'

    But since I'll be swapping to relief teaching for a while I will change it to something more professional.

    +1 to this. It explains any errors and the lack of formatting that my normal laptop has. Also gives it an overachiever feel when used after work hours or outside of work.
