It IS nice! I was playing with my BIL's Ipad yesterday :)

Congrats! I'm sure you're going to love it. I don't have one, just a small netbook. But it is nice to lounge in bed with them, especially if you're reading ebooks. I saw a protective case that's also an easel stand for Ipads at Big Lots.

Thanks! There are lots of covers like that now. They're pretty cool. I just got a screen protector and the front cover for now till I find what I want.

The Ipads can save you money, too. One of the customers in our store showed me hers. She takes it along when she shops. Most businesses have WiFy now. She goes online as she finds items and compares prices to see if she's getting the best bargain.

Don't laugh at me, but if I buy an IPad can I use it with my home DSL signal or do I have to have a contract through one of the cell phone companies? I know what they are and how they are used, but that's the extent of it.

I'd say probably, but you'd have to ask. I have cable and wifi so I've no experience there. You could ask your DSL provider. They'd probably know.

I also got the smallest cellular data contract with AT&T just to see how much I use it. I can't get wifi at the yarn store which is where I go to a social knitting group twice a week. And it'll be handy in the car for maps and such. This particular plan is 250mb for $15 a month.

However if I find I don't use it much then I'll turn it off and just turn it on when I need it like on vacation. It's easy to do through the app. It's on a 30 day plan for various amounts and it's billed to a credit card. You just turn it off before they charge your card again.
