We’re not big fans of Valentine’s Day around our house — or at least that’s what I tell myself as I run to the store to buy something for the wife. But we often do find ourselves with a lot of things in common when it comes to tech. If I get a new iPhone, my wife has to get one, too. That wasn’t the case with the iPad until the mini came out, and now we both have iPad minis that we carry around everywhere.

What about you? Do you and your significant other both have iPads? Let us know in the poll to the right!

Perhaps it’s a little early to put this question to the fine readers of iPad.AppStorm, but the sun is shining in England and it certainly feels like summer is upon us.

I’d like to know whether you’re intending to take your trusty iPad on holiday with you?

In my opinion the iPad is a superb travelling companion and I certainly wouldn’t leave home without it stocked full of movies and interesting articles to read, but perhaps you’re of a different persuasion. I can certainly see how certain holidays might make the iPad less useful – it’s powers are lessened if you’re on the beach a lot and it might be a bit risky to take it back-packing…

Nonetheless, I can see the merits of taking the iPad along for travelling time alone – some airlines have started giving fully-stocked iPads out to first-class passengers to use instead of the built-in multimedia system!

What kind of holiday will you be taking this year, and where will the iPad fit in? Let me know in the comments!
