I did it. Well, Kris did it. I am now the (happy) owner of an iPad.
So far, I must say, that I am really quite happy with it. I already have a ton of PDFs on it. I am currently using iBooks for PDF. I also have the Nook reader from Barnes and Noble, and the Kindle reader app.
I also found a few silly games and some other things, including a WordPress app so that I can write this post.
