    My husband will be thrilled if I win this awsome prize.

    A free iPad based on the best comment! I am destined to win!

    You see as a graphic arts teacher two (2) of my students won iPads at prom last year. They then proceeded to bring them to class for the rest of the year to flaunt their coolness. I was left with the cold sting, knowing that I could have never won the shiny object of my desires.

    I have sat at night dreaming of what I could do with such a device and the options grow by the day. I have drooled over remote control apps that would allow me to manage my classroom better. HTML apps that would allow me to work on the school’s webpage from afar. Games which would keep my children entertained on long trips, or even short ones for that matter. As my wife an I are avid readers, she is an English and French teacher, we would be able to share the iPad to download our favorite books.

    Yes, the possibilities are endless with the iPad in my life. It would never leave my side. I am an Apple man through and through, and have been for 17 years. The iPad would be a great addition to my shiny Apple family.

    I really want to get one of these to give to my girlfriend.

    I want the ipad, but not for me. My brother is getting married soon and I think this\’ll make the best wedding gift ever.

    If I was to with the iPad I will you it in many ways to improve my already green fingers. I already buy the vast majority of the books I read second hand (although this does leave me at the mercy of other readers when it comes to new releases) and try to buy magazines that use recycled paper, but now with an iPad, those books and newspapers I can’t buy second hand I will hopefully be able to download from the iPad store. I do believe, where possible people should buy second hand books – not only does this reduce the environmental impact, but it also supports a more diverse economy (through second hand and charity stores), it build an camaraderie between mutually minded strangers, and it also reduces the environmental impact of tree destruction.

    I will also be using my iPad to keep up-to-date on many green and technology websites such as inhabitat.com, looking at new innovations and ideas, and using and adapting my lifestyle where it is possible to become more green and environmentally proactive and harmonious. I am someday hoping to build an eco-friendly energy efficient/neutral house, and the news reports and on this website are always useful and an inspiration. I could other websites such as cooking websites whilst in the kitchen, not only reducing my need for cookbooks, but also meaning I could make more meals from scratch, thus continuing to reduce buying ready meals which are full of preservatives and outside packaging, which have direct and in-direct environmental and biological impact. At the same time I could be listening to music on my iPad, and if I’m not sure what an ingredient or word means I could surf the net and get the answer or location of produce or local farms etc…

    The applications of how I would use my iPad are immense, and the fact that Apple have built such a devise as an iPad with environmental concerns, such as; with an increasing battery life, Arsenic-free display glass, no mercury in display(!), recyclable aluminum and glass enclosures… to name just a few, means I can enjoy reading on my iPad without worrying about how the creation, life expectancy and post-use disposal of my electronic device will impact the environment.

    If I was to win the iPad, it would be used a lot, and for many things (dare I say -most things!). And if, in a few years a newer model was to come out, and I felt that there was a need for me to upgrade (cost permitting), then this iPad would be recycled in my favourite way – that being, passed on to another individual to enjoy!

    Iwould love to have an ipad because i am going back to college, in August, and i can do researches. plus I can write my paper in class and save on paper. I also can put my books on it to save some money on buying books from the school.

    I would go paperless on my bills and get them sent to me via email and download pageonce to organize my bills and remind me to pay them.

    I would then download and read the new york times and wall street journal instead of purchasing an issue every week.

    I’m a middle school science teacher, and I’d like to use this amazing machine with my students. If I had an iPad I could use it in my classroom in a variety of ways: I could create collaborative experiences where students viewed content on the iPad in small groups and then created a variety of responses; I could have students with learning difficulties use the iPad to independently view multimedia content related to the subject we’re learning or listen to the textbook while reading; I could use it to present or collect data and thoughts on a topic; I could pass it to the groups and let them create real-time web-based projects that is projected on the smartboard for the class to discuss; and so much more. A device like this would help me level my class, providing extra help for those that need it and added materials for those that excel. Because it’s a cool, new, hip device, my students are more likely to tune into it, and want to use it, which will increase their excitement and engagement.

    From an environmental side, I could stop with all the tree-killing, chlorine-washed textbooks. Aside from making my life easier (I’m on a cart and traveling with textbooks for four different MS classes plus other visual aids gets insane), I worry about how much paper we generate as we cycle through newly updated texts every few years. It would also make it easy for me to read other texts and science journals on the iPad, as opposed to on paper. (I read a LOT to prep for my classes, and to do my graduate coursework.)

    Lastly, I’m on the Technology Committee for my school, and using an iPad in my classroom would help me demonstrate its many uses for the school. Maybe I’ll be able to show administrators that an investment in this kind of technology would be a good investment for our students education and the school’s sustainability.

    i am in grad school and have soooo much reading!! How cool it would be to have an ipad w a groovy bamboo cover

    The iPad will definitely provide me a green alternative to help reduce my carbon footprint. I am an avid reader and I love to keep up with the current news. Converting to the iPad for reading magazines, news, and books will be a step towards reducing the “need” to print. Also, this idea of printing directly to the iPad can be filtered into other aspects of the daily life. For instance, using the iPad to view recipes for cooking, or reviewing and marking up notes from classes. I believe that the iPad is still such a new concept that it has not yet reached its full potential. I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to embrace the iPad in new ways and use it to change our assumptions instead of trying to fit it into existing molds.

    This would be a great gift for my daughter who’s 17 years old and starting college in August. She graduated from high school last year at 16 and took a year off to find herself. She’s very much interested in music and fashion, learning about incorporating eco-friendly design into fashion from her grandmother who created a line of green bags.

    What a prize!

  15. skib July 1, 2010 at 9:25 am

    What would I read on the iPad? This awesome site and various books/articles/websites on growing an organic garden and way son lowering my carbon footprint. :)

    There has never been a more important time to ensure that we are all living as green as possible, for everyone, all over the world, in all professions and walks of life.

    Surely, this is one thing that can unite us all, regardless of who and where we are – Inhabitat shows this every day.

    As an eco designer, this is what I strive to do every day as well – to affect things for the better and help people to be the best and greenest they can be.

    Unfortunately my breeze block of a laptop does not fit my eco ethos as well as it could, and even though I love it, the daily lugging around only benefits by arm muscles – not our dear planet.

    It would be lovely to win the iPad, so I can truly call myself an eco designer in all aspects and really help to progress change, as green as I can be.

    Thanks.

    I honestly find this site to be inspiring, lighting the way for greener design and innovation. It really shows that we can create and consume in greener and more sustainable ways.
