And even if the three letter agencies don't take an interest, when we discuss our building a better mousetrap in e-mails and meeting schedules, I'd prefer it if we didn't get bombarded with ads for pest control.

You think that's bad? Ever since our last project went bad, and I said we were screwed, I got all sorts of condom ads!

I disagree. I can post on my favorite forum from my iPad, but it's much easier from my laptop. I could probably update a spreadsheet for my home budget on the iPad, but never have because it's easier on the PC. And, though the iPad is much easier to carry than a laptop, the phone is much more portable, and adequate for most of the stuff I'd use an iPad for.

The iPad IS better for quick web searches, reading (but not composing) emails, and some games, but if I had to get rid of one of my devices, the iPad would go before either the laptop or the iPhone.

My iPad is more portable than a laptop, but my iPhone is much better. My iPad is better for book-reading than phone or PC, but a Kindle beats it. If I'm in a hurry, I can post to a forum or answer email on it, but my laptop is better. There are a few games that I play on the iPad, but that just puts it in the "fun toy" category.
