Anyone have an iPad?

Does anyone here have an iPad? Which food related apps do you have? What about other apps that you like?

Is that your newest toy GB? My uncle loves his. I'm still thinking about one. I'll be following this thread with some interest now.

Oh, and my favorite app for the iPhone (which I suspect is also on iPad) is Talking Carl. Makes me laugh out loud all the time.

Yeah my DW got it for me for my birthday. I am loving this thing. The potential for cooking and food related stuff is huge. I can imagine a cookbook with full color photos and videos of every step with links to all the ingredients and info one them like where to buy (or even links to online stores to buy right there) other interactive stuff.

I just searched on both my iPad and iPhone for talking Carl but did not see it anywhere in the app store.

iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad Application List Page not found

I can't find it on the Apple site but here are two links I found Googling. Still giggling. I'm so 12.

I could play with him for hours. And the kids LOVE him. You can pull his mouth open really wide and squish him too. He is excellent for mindless entertainment.

I am seriously considering the Samsung Galaxy pad. It's a bit smaller and I love the Android OS (and particularly like the fact that it is open source code).

The iPad came in very handy for me last week. DD was not feeling well and was on school vacation so I took her into work with me for the day. She read books, watched movies, colored, played games, wrote a book and did all sorts of other things on it for much of the day. It kept her completely busy which let me get my work done.

I was just wondering about iPads and such.
Where do they fit in with Kindle's? And for that matter, where do they fit in with smart phones (I have a Motorola Droid) and laptops? Is something looking to get phased out, or are they a missing link type device, like a link between a smallish smart phone and a "bulky" laptop?

pacanis, an iPad is exactly what you describe as the perfect blend between a laptop and a smart phone. It is really a giant iPhone.

As for how it relates to Kindle, well you can get a Kindle app for your iPad and you can read and download books same as you would on a Kindle. I'm not sure what the battery power is.

GB, do they come with a built in network or do you have to access the Net via a wireless signal?
