I really do love my iPad. For me, it's perfect.
I downloaded photos from my Sony DSLR camera with the camera attachment. It worked great. I can upload pictures to my MobileMe, Flickr or Kodak Gallery accounts. This will help out when traveling. I hated lugging around a big, bulky, 3 hour battery laptop through Europe.
I will also use this on field trips with my kids classes. It will help speed up the bus trip home.

Here is a neat product for the iPad that I want to tell you about. This will appeal to those who may like to keep their iPads naked but want to add an accessory that will help prevent slips from the hand. It may also appeal to others who want to add some design to their device. I present to you NinjaGrips. This is a “gripping” system that basically sticks via adhesive to the back of your device. NinjaGrips sent me over a review sample to try out.
Macworld has a great article listing 11 essential apps for your iPad. These are all paid apps. The one that really caught my eye is Air Video ($2.99), which lets you stream video from your Mac or PC to your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. It actually converts the videos on the fly to a format compatible with your device.
If you like trivia and games that test your knowledge, Bible Challenge is one you should own. The objective of the game is to make a path from the first row of squares to the fifth row. You do this in one of four options of game play: hangman, fill in the blanks, true/false questions, or trivia.
When I first got my iPad, I purchased the Apple iPad case to go with it. It’s a great case and what you would expect from an Apple product. It’s sleek, functional and protects the iPad as it should. But it was missing something – I couldn’t store my Pink Pogo Stylus in it, and you know how much I love my stylus!
The Summer 2010 issue of iPhone +iPad Life Magazine is out, and it’s packed with articles to get you started using your brand-new iPad. Here's some highlights:
Proporta sent me their new iPad Pouch, the Maya II Sleeve, to test out. This is basically a large slip case for your iPad. I have used slip cases in the past, but not for a device this large (compared to handheld devices). The slip case comes wrapped in a cardboard strip. It’s very basic, but gets the job done with the product information.

Apple has famously spurned Adobe's Flash technology that's used for, among other things, streaming video on the Internet. Steve Jobs doesn't like Flash and says that the new html5 standard, which is already built into the iPad, is the wave of the future. If you want to see how it works, Revision3, an Internet TV network, recently upgraded their website so that all of their streaming video uses html5 — and is therefore viewable on the iPad. They have a range of specially produced programming, including shows that review apps, HD technology and videos, computer games, movies, and a couple dozen more.
I have been a big fan of mind mapping software since my good friend and former co-worker Glenn Ferrel introduced the concept to me nearly 10 years ago. He showed me how a complex project or process with multiple relationships could be easily described and managed using the mind map approach. This allows relationships to be clumped together to help show relationships between concepts and activities. These ideas branch out from a centralized theme or objective and fluidly show the connections between the thoughts, ideas and objectives identified. Unlike more strict and discrete project management tools like Gantt charts, mind maps allow free association/disassociation as ideas formulate, shift and re-synthesize into a more crystalized state.
