What is your main use of the ipad 2
I use mine for a little bit of everything. games, email, web browsing, etc... It does them all perfectly too!
Web browsing like everyone else.
It out-kindle's the Kindle for tech books (not so much for novels).
New York Times (although I can't see subscribing at $5/week)
The Washington Post
Remote control for AppleTV
Note Taking - So far I prefer Notes Plus and a BoxWave stylus
I would like to access documents through SharePoint, but my IT group is being obtuse about it...
I have an iPad 1, but my main uses are:
note taking with evernote
some light games to help pass the time
Is there any advantage to the iPad being the AppleTV remote over the iPhone? I use my iPhone all the time for it and love it, especially when hosting parties and AirPlaying music from my MBP through my speakers. I wouldn't imagine there being any additional features or options for the iPad version though, right?
And how does the Notes Plus app work? Does it literally translate your written notes into accurate typed documents?
I have an iPad 2 wifi 64GB and it has replaced my desktop and laptop. For work all my training videos, presentations, technical manuals, e-mails, video conferencing, invoice tracking, and some of the hospitals I visit are using iPads for patient medical records and administration. I use LogMeIn Ignition, DropBox, NotesPlus, GoodReader etc.
At home I use my iPad to watch YouTube videos, Netflix, surf the web, organize soccer training with videos, kids homework, Facebook, share photos, read books, listen to audiobooks, stream music from iTunes.

Browsing the web
Accessing/editing key docs away from home
Mostly, reading news/books and browsing. It's just so good at doing it.
Music Production Side Kick
Mostly for reading and downloading full newspapers. It works unbelievably well, and no paper waste once done reading. Dito for magazines
occasional note taking
Reading news apps gets the most of my time. Followed by:
Simple web surfing (nothing like forums that requires a keyboard)
Playing simple games
Watching short videos (youtube etc., full movies and tv shows I'll wait and watch on the big screen)
Playing simple games while watching sports etc. (most gaming still done on my Xbox 360)
Reading some PDFs of research articles for work
Checking my Google calendar (ditched my dying, 10 year old Palm Pilot).
Taking notes in meetings
That's pretty much it thus far.
It would be nice if there was a pole....
Anyhow Internet, videos, and iPod functionality is my main uses
Mainly web browsing and emails. I play a few games here and there.
Since i'm am a brand strategy consultant, here's what I use my iPad 2 for:
1. web browsing
3. presentation (mirror to projector)
4. video showcase
5. note taking with soundnote
6. games (especially playing against other iPAD users and colleagues)
7. just to have it for 'wow' effect when visiting customers. (yeah, customers take us more seriously when we carry some 'latest' product in hand).
Criminal Defense Attorney - my uses:
Loading all my client files via dropbox & annotating via iAnnotate - saves me from carrying around binders full of police reports, etc. Typical murder case can easily exceed 500 pages (at least 3 binders) I can read, note and email them from anywhere.
Notes of case status updates - I save a pdf copy for the client file and send them a copy for their records.
Keynote for closing argument presentations
Teleprompter for website video scripts
Calendar management - gone is the paper calendar I used to carry
emails galore on the fly.
I haven't found any professional use for it yet (finance stuff nbd) but I love it at home.
Comic book reader, web browser & games seem to be the big 3 for me.
Web, music, and games. I also use it for note taking in class. I hardly touch my desktop now since I bought it.
Browsing the internet, taking notes, watching video, playing games and showing off
That is pretty awesome. OT: are you really the sausage king of Chicago?
I use my iPad for web browsing, emails, music, videos, note taking, record meetings, etc. It's great! Now if only there was an Oracle SQL client.
like everyone else, a lot of web browsing, email, reading stuff and games. Also a bit of VNC to my home media server and a ton of Air Video.
One thing I found myself doing more now is editing images. I transfer the pictures from my camera to the iPad, change the contrast, saturation, etc, crop the image and upload the final images straight to Flickr and other places. The iPad is a perfect tool for this as its display is much better than my laptops' and the whole work flow is rather painless for both me and my wife. I don't think I've used my desktop image editor for a while since I got my camera connection kit.
Your IT Group =
I use mine for internet, games, email, video watching.
