    Delete Tapatalk. Get google chrome. Also good and awesome are Vimeo, all the NASA apps (there's like five) Crackle (at times) and Netflix, if you have an account. The new G+ and Facebook apps are pretty good as well. Also, Flipboard for news and everything else.

    I'd suggest getting an aTV box-they're fairly cheap, and let you send videos and the like from your iPad to your television and speakers.

    DocsToGo will be a definite purchase, that will be great. Google chrome, copy that. I do have Netflix and Facebook so those are already on there. I saw Flipboard so I'll get that as well.

    When I see an iPad I always have the urge to snap it in half over my knee. Not that I hate them or anything it's just a little hang up I have with them. I think it started with etch a sketches.

    I'd get Crackle as well-it's like a Sony Entertainment-only version of Netflix. They have Seinfeld episodes and stuff.

    I'm pretty sure you're supposed to walk around with a smug sense of satisfaction while looking down your nose at anyone who isn't also holding one.

    No, no. You're supposed to sneer at people.

    If you do end up snapping it over your knee, let me know if it's as rewarding as it seems it would be. thanks

    Awesome ideas.

    Except for the snapping over my knee part. May not get to that.

    You can basically read any book you can imagine... for free!

    Plus I've been playing fifa 12 on it a lot.

    Apparently order and chaos is good too.

    Just about any iphone game is 302.5% better on an ipad...so I could list a bunch of games I guess, but there's probably already a thread or two about that. HBOGo is fantastic, particularly with the enhanced episode viewing (see Game of Thrones).

    The best thing about it is that I got it free for signing up for a free checking account earlier this year. All I had to do is set up direct deposit and pay three bills online. Once I did that, I closed that account. Only crappy thing is that I have to pay taxes on it come filing time 2013. Oh well. It was free, just not absolutely free as Dane Cook would say.

    Just kinda hold it there over your knee "as if" you were going to snap it. and then maybe just snap it!

    I meant Kate, maybe she'd want to use it as a mirror.
