  • Anyone else get an iPad?

    Are you pleased with it? I am really enjoying it. Reading Mice Chat in bed without a noisy hot laptop has been a very pleasant surprise. A little Sarah Vaughan in the background. Lovely.

    Mine is on order as I'm waiting for the 3g at the end of the month. In the mean time, I'm very envious. Monorail Man picked one up yesterday as well.

    Nice bokeh in that shot, and extra points for Sarah Vaughan.

      I heard there was little to no line at the Apple Store in the Irvine Spectrum. So we shall see.

        I really don't have any need for one, so I'll be passing on the iPad. I have my iPhone and that's enough for now.

          Ohh yeah, having 3G will be handy. It depends what you have it in mind for. I wanted something to use in bed so I can get away form my desk. So wifi seemed fine. But i can see how having 3G can be perfect for people using it in the field or on location.

          Thats what I thought to having a iPhone, Octo Mac Pro and 15" MBP already. But it added a totally new way to enjoy the web in a personal and relaxing manner.

          also a huge plus for me was how amazing my primary photography looked on it and now I use it to show my photos to people outside of my home since I dont post or share them on the internet ever. I used to lug around 22" prints but not anymore. AND i love the eReader for magazines. I subscribe to a UK photography magazine and its so expensive using Royal Mail. Its like half the price now and its ipad ready and its an excellent experience. way better then traditional magazines. waaaay better. and I dont wanna carry my laptop to the cra... uh, never mind.

          for some its a luxury, a convenience or an affordable laptop replacement. its a bit of each for me.

            Nope. I don't get it, but that that shouldn't be a surprise.
            Good morning, son
            In twenty years from now
            Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
            And I can tell you 'bout today
            And how I picked you up and everything changed
            It was pain
            Sunny days and rain
            I knew you'd feel the same things...

              after playing around with one last night at Best Buy, i'm severely tempted, but IF i do get one i'm gonna wait a bit
              Will there be screams when the sun sets,

                If I get one it will be the 3g, but right now it's to lacking in things that should be on it. mic, cam, flash, clock...IDK...I will wait. It just seems like a huge iphone to me with less features.

                I'm thinking it will go the way of the iphone with another release next year. Hopefully with improvements on it. So, I will wait for now.

                  The app I am looking for is something that would let me use it as a drawing tablet. If something like that comes out, I think I'll get one. Until then I have enough means of getting online.

                    It has a mic. I already do dictation on it.

                    Like Autodesk Sketchbook pro?

                      good to know, but it really needs more.....I'll see if the next release peaks my interest.

                        I look forward to hearing how is the battery life of the thing, not what Apple says but what you guys find to be true.

                        personally, I never buy first gen anything.

                          I've been using it since Saturday and I still haven't had to charge it and vie been streaming netflix movies on it. Some reviewers having claimed watching 10 hours straigt of video.

                          This is one thing that concerns me about the 3G version cause 3G is notorious for killing battery life.

                          We shall see.

                              I don't think the touchscreen will let you use a normal stylus because it's capacitive. You would have to use something like the Pogo...
