This was pretty much what I had envisioned when I originally purchased my iPad

    yeah it would be hard to balance a laptop on there. I hope you got one of those waterproof bags so we can see you in a floaty chair in the pool with a pina colada.

    It was absolute paradise, an 8 day Caribean Cruise. When we walked through the ship the first day to explore everything it had to offer, we walked through a lounge area called the Garden. It was a soft lit room with windows throughout with seats and tables in front of each, it wrapped around the entire rear of the ship on the 3rd floor. All I imagined was sitting an hour a day reading. One day as I was reading I was thinking to myself...THIS is exactly what I was thinking when I bought my iPad, so I took out my Droid incredible, held it over my head and snapped a shot of the view :D Figured I'd share it ;)

    If only you had a laptop instead, to obscure that distracting view. ;)

    Very nice.

    Thank God the iPad doesn't have a camera. Come on, it's hard enough finding a cell phone without one. I can't use any of the Apple laptops, or upgrade my Nano because they ALL have a digital imaging device. Now people scream for cameras on touches and iPads. Hell, all the gyms in me area are for women only because of guys and camera phones.

    Please let me enjoy the next few generations of iPads, cameraless. How about tethering a webcam through the dock. Then we will have Choice...

    I'm sure someone will come up with a USB camera to use with the camera-connection kit that somehow clips to the top edge of the ipad.

    Too bad that someone isn't Steve. It would be nice if Apple would at least give us this option.

    Ditto. Have camera, Apple Camera Connector Kit, GPS for geotagging, and iPad = mobile photography.

    Tried to post attachments directly but could get it to work properly.

    The Ipad is so beast

    I'm writing this on my ipad. I can type anywhere with this and have fun. I have the new york times and USA today. Often I go outside and read them. The iPad is worth every penny.:cool:

    ...really? Why don't you just wear a tinfoil hat? That way we can have built in cameras on our iPads and you can feel safe.

    Yea like you would really video conference on it... Sure you would. $25 web cam to your desk top or laptop, or iSight. Do you do it now ?



    What the hell does a tin foil hat have to do with some corporate, manufacturing, and government facilalities not allowing any type of cameras on their premises? No mac books, iPhones, Androids, ect...

    Well, not everyone is in whatever situation YOU are in. Some workplaces for instance, ban devices with cameras from ever setting foot inside the door. So for some people putting a camera on a piece of technology is a problem.
