When I take a moment to think about the number of devices my iPad and iPhone have replaced, it’s quite impressive. With these two devices I no longer need an MP3 player, camera, camcorder, GPS device, voice recorder, flashlight, calendar, calculator, dictionary, notepad, address book or guitar tuner.

Do feel free to leave a comment below, do you use your iPad more now than when you first got it, or less? Is your time limited by others who have made their claim on your iPad?
