I use my iPad like an iPad. When I pick up my iPad I don’t think that I’m missing out because I’m not using my Mac. I chose the iPad because it fit the task I’m doing at the time.
I agree with Jim, and think about my iPad in a similar way. Here are some common uses for my iPad:
- Light email work
- Reading RSS feeds
- Checking Twitter
- Writing short posts for 512 Pixels
- Watching TV
I can do all of these things on my MacBook Pro, or even my Mac mini at home. The iPad, however, makes these tasks not only easier, but more enjoyable … especially on the couch, with a beer.
