I use my iPad to take pictures. Yeah just think about that image in your head. Let it sulk in and pretend it should be normal. Welcome to 2012.

The camera on my iPad might just be better than the camera on my phone. But I still feel really weird taking pictures with it.

My opinions on each "use" for an iPad:

1) Just ridiculous.

2) There's an app for that.

3) Very practical

4) Most practical

5) Amazing that they were able to do that. I've seen pics of Win 95 on a Samsung Moment before as well.

6) Ingenious. I bet that the iPad batteries lasted longer than the battery in the mobile hotspot.

7) Built-in GPS/entertainment system on a motorcycle, something that most motorcycles lack.

8) More like the typewriter is a keyboard for the iPad.

9) More like a special dock for an app.

10) I wouldn't be too surprised if they actually came out with something like this sometime in the near future.

Windows 95 is still epic today.
Windows 8 will be king.

All useless accessories are stupid for the ipad not to mention the 200$ price camera lense.
