The docs have to get over their irrational preference for paper. My Google Health record is superior to, if not as specialized as, any chart that any of my providers or insurers have. None of them are equipped to exploit it. Only pharmacies are able to update it. Not only are the paper records inefficient, their use is highly error prone.
I think that you must have touched a sore place.

The first day it was on sale here everyone I saw on my train was asking all sorts of questions. Now even though I don't see anyone else with one I still see people staring at me and hear them whispering LOL. When I'm not sitting or at work I have it in my laptop bag since I leave it at work now.

I dread bringing it out in public. I hate small talk and I generally don't like being disturbed when I'm doing something. When one ***** had asked me the question "is that an iPad?", I didn't answer and gave this nasty look to him.
I also bring large head phones and I crank up the music in an effort to prevent people invading my space.

I begin to like the attention less and less. For me, it's as much about HOW people approach me as it is the fact that they do.

Left my laptop home and took my iPad 3G with me on family vacation for a week--and glad I did, as there was no WiFi to be found at the beach.
My whole family plays Words With Friends, and while they were having to deal with the iPhone's screens, I was able to play and see the entire board at once. Nice.

I took my iPad out in the wild for the first time to a pub for Sunday lunch to show to the friend I was meeting there. I was amazed to see 3 other people with them.
A quiet pub out in the country is not the first place I would expect to bump into other iPad owners!
It did start a few conversations and comparison of the WiFi only and 3G versions, a 50-50 split.
Is there a name for a collection of iPads? How about a Pool of iPads lol

Took mine to jury duty today, it was great to surf the internet while everyone else was reading books. MyWi tethering is fantastic haha
Didn't have anyone ask about it though, which I didn't really mind. The less people that notice that I have a expensive device with me in downtown the better.
