    Playing with my wifi model, tethering when needed and enjoying NOT paying AT&T for a second data plan when I would not be using the data on both my iPad and iPhone simultaneously.

    Occasionally reading this forum in desperate anticipation. Otherwise, what Manatee said.

    Pretty much the same as Scuba except the ripping DVDs part. Also spent some time watching DetroitBorg's videos on the iPad. Also purchased an external hard drive to back-up music and videos.

    I also look at this every once in a while and smile: http://gibbz.com/ipad/

    I'm doing something similar. I have a new PC coming this week, and I bought a new 1.5TB drive I'm going to dedicate as my iTunes drive. I'm just doing it internal, though. Someone told me having your iTunes library on a sep drive (whether external or internal) can speed up PC performance some when doing things like DVD or CD rips, because of the I/O being off-loaded to a non-system drive. Not sure it matters as much on a Mac, as I'm not familiar.

    Been playing with my WiFi model too, but I haven't really moved into it, in anticipation of the new one coming. :)

    Adding iPad apps to my iTunes wishlist.

    Still figuring out the logistics for Friday. Whether I should get there early, or if I should just go to the store an hour or so before and pray that I get a 16/32 GB.

    Funny thing is that I could very well just wait. It's not like a Jordan release where the shoe sells out and stores never get restocks.

    Also, there's a little demon on my shoulder advising me to wait for the refurb anyway. Hmm. :rolleyes:

    ripping DVD's and putting them in my Air Video folder
    downloaded some free iPad apps
    added some games and the iWork apps to my wishlist.
    check my order status once before I go to work and then when I get home.

    then go on with life ... this week NBA playoffs and sometimes Family Guy for 3 hours on TBS

    Downloading Apps for iPad, rippin' certain movies I plan on watching on it, ordered my screen protector and carbon fiber vinyl skin for back. I feel like a pregnant woman who's nesting, except I'm not a woman........and I suck at making nests.

    I also continue to be drawn into pointless threads just to read all the post and try to determine what psychological disorders people are dealing with.

    Plus it helps that the Blackhawks are in the playoffs and just sent Nashville home for the summer. BRING ON VANCOUVER!!!!!!!

    Complaining to my wife about how hard it is to wait for it, and buying her things so she'll miss her classes on Friday to be here to sign for it (I can't take work off on Friday).

    Seriously though, just living my life, programming (Mac software), working my day job, spending time with friends and family, etc. Same as I always do.

    well i was excited today because the iPad 3G is almost here.
    i have a 64GB on pre-order. but then today sucked.
    i had lacrosse practice in the pouring rain here in NJ,
    then studied for my SAT's (which are the day after the iPad 3G launch)
    and then on the way back from the mall crashed my brand new car.
    Godddd this iPad needs to come.

    Studying for the final I'll be taking (hopefully) right after the ipad is delivered (assuming it gets to my house before 10 AM).
