Thought I'd start a fairly unique idea...were have you traveled with your iPad so far?

My iPad was the first ever on Antelope Island in Salt Lake City, UT. I had a little trouble finding a WiFi hotspot though! :D

Yes, because I like to put my new devices with aluminum backings on sharp rocks.

Snarky comment indeed, but I was very careful. Not a single scratch.

Anyhow, anyone have something valuable to add?

I think you're running into issues trying to operate your iPad with these gloves to be honest.

i don't understand why people would pause to take a picture of an iPad in use if it's going to be in use at somewhere beautiful/relaxing/wonderous. Why not just enjoy the world for its wonders instead of focusing on a material thing?

It’s probably the same reason why you would stop and take a picture of your dog, or maybe your care if you had a nice one. People enjoy taking pictures and video, hence sites like flickr and YouTube. Our entire world is made up of material things so it's pretty hard not to focus on them.

haha sure...

But if i was in a place like the one pictured in the OP. I wouldn't be taking a picture of a device. Nature is the ultimate beauty that no man can create. Seems like a waste to me. But hey more power to you.

Yeah, because the few seconds it takes someone to take a pic will really keep them from enjoying the world... :rolleyes:

Actually, pictures like the OP's are really cool for showing off that stark contrast between nature and manmade objects. I thought it was a good photo.

I'm also a little disappointed in MR for not finding anyone else to post similar photos (I don't have an iPad, so I can't).
