iPad Usage 

Jim Dalrymple:

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
  • Gaming
  • 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.
