    I don’t have an ipad but after this, I just may get one. There are some really great functions with this phone. I am really impressed. The pet use was a cute touch! Regardless, my cat is not going to get one. She is spoiled enough.

    Thanks for taking the time to do the research on it!

    I have been wanting an I-Pad and plan to get one soon. I probably won’t use all the functions available on the I-Pad, but I will explore them to see what it can do.

    I brought the iPad to a conference. it is easy to carry around, great for note taking and quick email check and Twitter/Foursquare.

    Brought on a business trip and used to hook up to projector. Did entire PPoint presentation! Worked great!

    Similar to your #10 above using it as a restaurant menu, I can see a restaurant soon issuing these to the wait staff. We already see them writing down an order and then walking off someplace to use a touch screen to send the order to the kitchen. How much faster and more accurate would it be to use the iPad as the touchscreen right at the table?

    Would love to hear from somebody that writes apps to see if this is feasible or in the works anywhere. Have many restaurant and bar clients.

    I have mine hooked into speakers, and listen to Pandora, which plays while I’m on other apps like Evernote.

    Fun tips, been using my ipad extensively since April 2010 for photo and video presentations. As a freelance photographer, haven’t found a better way to showcase great quality and in a portable device . Lots of people ask how to synch photos in separate albums, so I wrote step by step tips on my blog – http://andreajohnsonphotography.com/photography-tips/ipad-tips-importing-photos-videos

    İ loveee my iPad. İ don’t understand why some people refuses to use it. İt’s easy to carry and use. İ definetely agree with you. My husband and are addicted to Apple products.

  • Nicktaimitarha

    Until you have one you really can’t understand how addictive the iPad is, it just doesn’t feel like work, so quick to get online, great for recipes in the kitchen, makes Internet browsing so quick and easy and it’s just made for social media.

    I’m a “storm chaser”. Much easier to have the iPad out to watch radar feeds, as long as I have an internet connection. I have the original iPad but my droid acts as a Wi-Fi hot spot. Works great.

    Its an innovative gadget that has particularly helped shape the face of news reporting. All these above mentioned uses prove to us how much people enjoy playing around and making their daily life more injoyable and in a sense add another sense to our senses.

    I use my ipad as a test dummy. If it breaks I buy a new one. I am on my 12th IPad so far!!!!

    Kids watch movies so I can watch football.  Between Netflix streaming (somewhat limited) and I rip the DVD cartoon movies I own in the football off season.

    As a softskills trainer I use it in classrooms to take a picture of my flipcharts I make. This enables me to monitor what I did, to better them afterwards….

    The new ipad has come out with some great features. and you have done a great thing by posting this, and make it easier to understand the use of the new iPhone.

    Restaurant menu? Done http://www.usatoday.com/tech/news/story/2011-09-20/ipad-restaurant-menu-ordering/50482900/1 and http://mediagallery.usatoday.com/Restaurants-turn-to-iPads-/G2042?loc=interstitialskip and http://www.aptito.com/ipad-restaurant-menu/Digital-Menus

    But not in posh restaurants where customers are paying for a personal service experience, rather in bistro style restaurants.

    Very useful if your job requires you to pick up passengers at the airport and need to hold up a sign with his/her name on it so that they notice you in a throng. Beats producing new plaques every time, and you could literally animate your ipad display with text and images to attract an arriving passenger when you’re surrounded by a sea of people and signs. The same principle probably applies in sports stadiums?

    I like #6, but it becomes a problem when pulling oneself together, so to speak, and no shelf or table to rest it on. So I’ve heard. Someone should invent a hanger of some sort for such occasions.
