    I love the tv shows from iTunes really handy although they cost a fortune really so i've started ripping my own DVD's but this takes ages to do just working my way through a couple of TV shows at the minute.

    Right now it's my main form of entertainment while breastfeeding a newborn (I'm typing this one-handed, as I do almost everything these days). Which mostly consists of web, FlipBoard, and games that can be played one-handed.

    Before that, I was using it a lot for to do lists, and for note-taking as part of my research.

    I've found a lot of uses.

    Gaming is probably my biggest time sink and so far it's helped me cope while my Asus "gaming laptop" is a inoperable paperweight. I have an Xbox 360 as well (collecting dust), but the iPad 2 gaming has been amazing (amount and quality of content).

    Music creation with GarageBand, Thumb Jam...etc

    A lot of surfing.

    E-Book reading (currently on The Passage).

    Movies and TV series watching (on the last season of The Office, having downloaded and watched them on iTunes/iPad.

    I use Pages to work on the next great American novel.

    Email checking for work....email management on this thing rocks.

    What my iPad does most (OK, all) of the time is just take up space. Fortunately it is only a thin slice of space consumed. :D
