iPad 3G is great at sea
GPS is the killer app for sailors. Don't need to be in cellular range to get GPS reception. The app called iNavx is awesome. Download NOAA charts prior to leaving on a voyage and the iPad becomes a handheld chart plotter.
Put the iPad in a sealed, clear ziplock bag (the touch screen works fine thru the plastic) and you're good to go anywhere rain or shine.
But remember...you don't get GPS with a wi-fi only iPad.

How many of you take the iPad to the Coffee Shop
I am loving my ipad2. I can't put it down.
I was wondering. How many of you take it with you out of the house everyday? Like to Starbucks or when you are out with the girlfriend and need to kill time while she shops?
I don't see a lot of ipads in the wild? I see lots of netbooks and PC's in coffee shops but almost no ipads.

Not sure why you don't see many iPads. I see quite a few. I'm new in business, and often bring my iPad with me to all of our team meetings, which are typically held at restaurants, bars, etc. Very handy for showing off our website to people with, and bringing up spreadsheets, ppt presentations, videos, etc. I do bring my iPad everywhere with me in my car or my backpack, because my phone has a really unreliable battery *cough*Palm*cough*. Having the iPad with me helps me keep in touch with people through email or IM long after my phone dies, whenever I'm away from home for more than 6 hours.
Bonus points for being light as a book!

On a side note, I was watching the news, and Christy Clark was on the news (politician) for working part time at a cafe Saturday mornings, to get meet citizens in person. In a scene, one of the people in the background was playing on his iPad, while some guy beside him on his smartphone of some sort (probably an android, since I couldnt recognize it.)
