    I will be honest, I stopped being a “reader” when I started working full-time years ago. I have read plenty of books of all types over my life but lately I have been getting bored or I let work/life get in the way. I end up carrying two and sometimes three books around because I think I am going to find time to read but I never do. That may sound like an excuse for some but it’s the reality in which I live.

    My girlfriend, however is a power reader. In all the years we have been together for every one book I have read, she has read six and it’s getting rather ridiculous. I’m falling behind. We’ll go out to hang in the park and while I am mentally chasing butterflies she is blowing through Atlas Shrugged like its a child’s book.

    I really need this iPad. I want to enjoy reading again, but I also want to explore several different genres at same time. My focus jumps all over the place which is why I currently lug around “The Fastest Bicycle Rider in the World”, “Towards and New Architecture” and “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks”. Three great books that are getting to know each other better inside my bag than I am getting to know them. I am also carrying around at least one magazine I have delivered and it will never make its way out of the plastic. After a couple of months the books and magazines just pile up in our living room. How much am I wasting?

    I do what I can for the environment…I ride my bike to work everyday, rain or shine, I check out books from the library when I can (although lately have had to buy them because of the length of time I keep them) and I recycle my gadgets when I get new ones. I know I am not blazing a trail here but I am trying and this iPad will only multiply my efforts.

    If I win, I can’t guarantee I will never buy a book or magazine again or demand that the hotel I’m staying in not deliver me a copy of USA Today. I’m new at this whole save the world thing and for an Architect in California, I shouldn’t be admitting such things but it’s true. I’m a one-step-at-a-time kind of guy and getting the iPad would be a very large step for me and I am ready for that challenge.

    Dear Inhabitat,
    My name is Ana and I am an architecture student thirsty for knowledge and information. Having an iPad would help me get more informed on current world issues, stay updated on the latest architecture news and save so much time and money by not having to print for school! It would truly be a luxury to recieve this iPad since it is something that right now, for me, is unattainable. Please give me this opportuity to learn and become more involved.
    Thank you for your consideration,

    I run a small design firm and we make design presentations on a daily basis. This means we spend a lot on inks and paper. Designing packaging, retail Identity and corporate identity requires several studies and design revisions before a solution is arrived at. The IPAD is a strategic and useful presentation tool that will not only lessen our usage of paper and inks, but also deliver a more efficient design services to our valued clients.

    Oh, what a wonderful way to get the kids to spend more time outdoors. Portability will prevail!

    I think it’s funny how I stumbled upon this contest. I am currently volunteering for two non profit organizations. One on a farm and one called the big kidz foundation. Winning this iPad would help me teach under privileged kids to take knowledge to another level and to take expression to another dimension. I want to be apart of making this happen for them. With that in mind the iPad will provide the youth I work with a platform to showcase their talents and to sharpen their craft. It will save me money instead of buying a computer and books to read to them. It also saves space and energy ( Carbon Footprinting) compared to a desktop and it goes anywhere. The ipad is one of the best ways for me and them to experience- Web, email, photos and video, completely paperless. With the right apps I can use the iPad as a handy tool. Please help me make a BIG difference to positively affect literacy, mathematics, and artistic inclination through the use of humanities.
    I’m determined and dedicated to change the world and inspire kids. If I win this iPad I’m going to download iBook and read to the kids under a tree :)
    Also if I win I’m going to start my own blog about going green.

    Thank you for reading my vision,

    Sloan Hawthorne

    i want to win this iPad
    ’cause Apple has gone green
    Reducing paper, waste, and electricity
    The iPad is resourceful as we should learn to be

    i could take my movies, games, books, and music on the go
    Write a novel on the bus, man you never know
    Find my way by bike using the GPS feature
    Planting a garden becomes easy with You Tube as my teacher

    The touch screen fuses thinking and doing with precision
    i want this iPad because I have a vision
    To start a website for my creative green business
    An online shop so everyday can be like Christmas

    and not to worry folks, I’ve done all my research…

  10. sgpwriter June 22, 2010 at 2:14 pm

    I’ll be reading an enormous amount of scientific research on it, particularly pdfs from Nature and New Scientist.

    And when I’ve taken enough notes I’ll be writing my novel on it which will only be available as an ebook.

    Well I read alot of books and magazine articles so an Ipad would help me save lots of trees. But most of all thinking of my grandchildren that there will be enough trees for them to hug!

    If I won this iPad, I would use it as a tool to teach my children about and instill in them green values. I would use it to read children’s Environmentalist books to my 2 sons ages 7 and 3, such as Giggles the Green Bean by Lauren Davis and The Lorax by Dr. Seuss to name a few. I’d also use this iPad to access websites on the internet with my sons such as that has important educational information on conservation, endangered species, rainforests, forests, toxic waste sites, health issues, and numerous other vital ecological concerns that I believe are vital for our children to be taught at an early age. The iPad is such an incredible interactive tool that as a parent I would take charge in using it to create an environment of fun, learning and development involving my whole family that I feel would enhance good values and enrich my children’s education and inspire them to live day to day doing things to help the environment.

    Honestly I would love to read Internet Comics and cbr files on this piece of work ; plus it saves paper!

  14. frozennights June 21, 2010 at 9:38 pm

    Kill time and catch up on some reading while I am flying back to the States to FINALLY come home to my wife and kids, WOOT!!

    I have been told by an artist friend that there is an amazing drawing/sketching program on the iPad. Maybe it would get me drawing and painting again! My son and I would also love to load it with books and take it with us on our road trips. And my son would love having on-the-road access to Google Earth, his favorite application ever (and why he, at eight, wants to be “a cartographer when I grow up”). This is the kind of thing that we can’t afford on our own, but that we know we would use and thoroughly enjoy.

  16. Fruitloopssalvatore June 20, 2010 at 8:11 pm

    That’s amazing… What stuff you can do to make being green in your everyday use!

  17. raiden June 20, 2010 at 4:04 pm

    In this day and age preserving what we have is the utmost important act we can do. While I love the feeling of paper in between my fingertips and the smell of books, I save that for some classics and library finds.

    I would immediately dive into any of Jane Jacobs and Lewis Mumford books with the iPad. I would also like to read “A Village to Reinvent the World” by Alan Weisman. Going back to some of our brightest beginning insights of our declining world provides a wealth of information in itself. Along with a refresher course on perspective.

    iPad is a wonder in itself. With the amount of gadgets that are being carried around by each of us; having a lightweight all-in-one with great battery life is a fantastic way of helping us slim down the over abundant, energy consumable technology that has swallowed us whole.
