    What are your signs that you are addicted to your iPad? (Confession time)

    Here are two of mine:

    1)When given a sheet of paper with a small font I put my thumb and forefinger on it and spread them expecting the font to get bigger.

    2)Slight tears come into my eyes when I see the "We Believe" ad from Apple.

    I constantly wipe it down, with a cloth, to clean it; and if I ever see a piece of dust that looks like a scratch, my heart stops - temporally.

    *) You're sitting at your desk, with a much more powerful computer at your disposal, but you still prefer to browse the web on your iPad. :eek:

    When you have to check your email as soon as you hear the tone, regardless of the importance level of your current activity.

    I kind of hate it. I'm addicted to reading my emails. I don't even know why, they're usually not even important.

    When you insist that anyone who touches go wash their hands first.

    After I bought the iPad 2, I never want to spend time with my Mac anymore. ;)
    I only use my Mac for Syncing, downloading and important photos to Aperture.

    My brother wanted to use mine yesterday and I found myself asking him if his hands were clean.

    If when someone hands you a printed sheet of paper your first thought is, why didn't they just email this to my iPad...then you refuse to look at it until they do.
