I think I'll pick one up for myself. I don't think I have the need for an iPad, especially if they are lacking in the reading capabilities, but a Kindle would be nice.
I decided I needed a Kindle when I realized that most of the weight in my luggage when we travel is books! LOL! I pack lightly when it comes to clothes, but I NEED my books.

I don't have an iPod touch or an iPad yet. I will likely end up getting an iPad at some point, again for travelling. I love my MacBook but it is a bit heavy.

I also have Yelp! and Chowhound apps on my ipod. Their mobile apps are easy to navigate too.

I have a laptop, a Kindle and a Tracphone. It's all I really need. The Tracphone makes and takes phone calls.

I have yelp on both my iPhone and iPad and love it. It's one of my favorite and most used apps. I do not see the chowhound app anywhere though.

You're right about Chowhound. They don't have a mobile app, although I find their site easy to navigate even on my tiny ipod.

We both have iPads and iPhones. DH got his when they were released early last mine and I got mine on a charity auction at Christmas. I had an iPod touch that I sold. While I still have a laptop for work, I can't imagine life without my iPad. I use it for everything ... City council meetings, student observations, cruising the web, movies, music, etc. We also received apple tv for Christmas so we can stream from our iPads to the tv (tv, music, and movies). DH has a cook book on his that we use a lot, sorry, I can't think of the name of the app and he has his at a Lion's meeting. I'll get it when he gets home. I will say, reading books is harder than I thought but it is nice for storing PDF files, either recipes or knitting patterns.
