    What are some of your not so obvious uses for your iPad that aren't just games, books, browsing, etc..

    I use my iPad to replace my filing cabinet. Like I scan all of my bills, school handouts, military files, and use iAnnotate for school work, and fastPDF to keep track of my bills so see my usage and spending over time to adjust my monthly budgets.

    What useful not so obvious ways have you developed?

    I use mine as a knife when I'm cutting vegetables and my MacBook air isn't around.

    Mirror to shave in the cold dark morning. Cuts are manly badges of honour. Roar.

    I use it to go shopping. I don't really do anything with it while I'm there, but it looks nice!

    It works nicely as a laptop stand -- I use it to raise the back of my MacBook Air so the keyboard angle is comfortable for typing.

    Not sure if this is a Joke Thread but the the majority of the replies suggest it. So I'll bite

    Cutting Board
    Straight Edge
    Knife
    Nut Cracker
    Umbrella
    Sun Visor
    Lumbar Support
    Frisbee
    Paper Weight
    Door Stop
    Serving Tray
    That thing you do to keep a chair from wobbling
    Trowel

    To the OP, those things you listed are not that uncommon uses for the iPad.

    I bought an iPad 2 last week so that I'd have a handy gadget to keep up to date with all the iPad 3 rumours.

    Two years of college French, one year refresher course in grad school to pass my Doctoral language requirement, and I still don't know squat. Such a bozo.:p

    Thanks for the correction. Perhaps I can avoid embarrassing myself in the future. Or, better yet, I'll stick with English, and pray. :D

    Me and my stupid affectations.
