@ALG Then isn't the Kindle a better option? No LCD can compete with e-ink when it comes to reading.
I completely agree with buyer's remorse. You buy it and you feel obliged to use it, because you bought it so therefore it must have some value from you. And so you try to squeeze out value from it.
I bought one and spent hours trying to organize my life around it and see how many things I could do on it. I finally admitted that there is nothing that I can do an iPad that I can't do better elsewhere.
Typing on the touchscreen is worse than typing on a keyboard. Buying a wireless keyboard just goes to show that laptops and computers already work. Besides, there's no Colemak wireless keyboard for Apple.
Watching movies on the iPad seems comfy and cozy but again, computers and TV do it better. Especially if you download movies and spend hours converting them to an iPad-compatible format. No.
Buying apps to make your life better and make yourself more organized like mindmaps and to-do apps is just time-wasting when you can just open up a Word document and start typing away plans and organizing your thoughts. If you use an app on the go, then you'd use it on your iPhone and iPod touch.
Reading: get an e-reader.
Browsing the web: just like with movies, if you really want to spend time browsing the web, then sit down in front of a computer and browse. If you really want to watch a movie, sit down in front of the computer or TV and watch. There's no need to make it seem like browsing the web on your iPad will save you time or will help you accomplish more.
Basically, the iPad aims to convince us that mouse-free, keyboard-free devices are better. This is true only if the device is portable, like an iPhone. But the iPad is a hassle to carry around, so nope. Total mistake.
