Every since I have bought my iPad I have been downloading all of the newest apps and trying them all out. I bought the Wifi iPad on release day, and I personally use my iPad as a note taking, book reading, casual browsing device. I was wondering in what ways do you guys use your iPad? I am very interesting in how people might use it in different ways. Thanks everybody!

I find my iPad to be very useful for fast task tracking. I use Things for the iPad, iPhone and Mac. So when I'm on the move I keep track of my tasks on the iPhone, when I'm setting things to do I do it on my Mac, and if I get some sort of pop-in-your-mind tasks at midnight (lunch, or just on the couch) I capture them on the iPad.
I also use the iPad with Dropbox to access my files (in some cases edit them) and to use them offline (very useful).
Of course, I like the iBook :). Ah, and since we develop iPad/iPhone apps, I have created my own sort of apps to make my day more enjoyable, like putting all the company online resources in one app :)... and things like that :).

I use my iPad as a substitute for paper, pads, pencils, pens, laptop, or any other items that I used to have to carry. I can take notes, find information, access emails and attachments, show others photos, diagrams, sketches, you name it. The lack of Flash is rarely a problem and it will become less so. WiFi access is it's only requirement. I opted not to rely on AT&T's 3G so I have a portable Sprint Mifi card as a WiFi access point when on the go (Verizon offers one also).
