    I’m a guitarist and I would use the iPad primarily for accessing online guitar tablature and learning new songs. It would be really convenient to be able to be able to read music in a place where I do not have a computer with me. Mainly outside. PLEASE PICK ME!!!!!!

    If I could have a chance to win an ipad it would be such a help as I have problems sitting too long at computer and miss out on all the great things I could be in contact with….family, grandchildren, news, as could use something so sweet as ipad. I am disabled veteran and would love to really love to have an ipad

    Yay!! I’m so excited about this contest! I love apple ipad and the new ecofriendly case!!!!!!

    Here are just a FEW things I will do with my ipad:
    I will use my ipad to keep up with Inhabitat! and read the newsletters.
    I will use my ipad for collecting and sharing pictures, video and stories from my travels and adventures.
    I will also use my ipad to read and learn more while helping to educate my students about how to help change the world for the better. I will use my ipad in my classroom to integrate technology into my lessons and help change the world!
    I would be able to Read more by Saving the Trees and influencing others to make the world more green!

    We run a program in Colombia teaching at risk and lower income kids the importance of recycling, preserving the environment and innovation in green technologies. We have at the moment over 60 kids signed up and w meet with them once a week. We do not have a physical space where we meet, first because we are very grass roots and have no financial means to commit to a lease and second because we believe in hands on experience. because of this we have to have access to mobile computers and internet. At this point we have 2 laptops and 1 ipad for our kids to work on their assignments and research and want to expand. Colombia as a third world country has relegated its environment to an after thought and we are on the fore front of changing this and are taking advantage of the interest and savvyness of young people to use them as catalysts in this green movement. A win of new ipad would greatly help us advance our goals. Thank you for the opportunity.

    If I won the I-pad i would be recycling the extra money i would save on the books i buy into more environment friendly things. I would be saving my body parts that have been fixed -shoulders, knees, hips, and neck by not carting things that are too heavy like all the books i take on vacations. As a grandmother i would be making my grand kid know that i am still learning everyday and and trying to stay up with the technology he uses everyday without thinking twice about!!!

    Although I would love to have a new ipad for personal use, it would probably make the most sense to show the low income families and children that I run into everyday how being an environmentally conscious individual starts with oneself. I’d use the ipad for colorful presentations and easy to understand examples and information to teach children that it truly doesn’t have to be about having money in order to care about the earth they live in. Recycling, curbing utility use, spreading the word to classmates and other families are just a few amongst many things children can do. They are our future and I’m sure inhabitat feels the same. Thanks.

    My company makes eco friendly iPad cases using recyclable clothing and fabric remnants. Each is hand made and unique for the owner. Check ’em out at

    Sitting under the stately old trees in Lenox Massachusetts,
    listening to the sounds of the great classical masters sounds
    played by the Boston Symphony Orchestra infused with the simple
    sounds of the sparrows reminding me this is “his” place where
    I am only a guest. My ipad,a reminder of the “techo” I live in.

    I would use the iPad to research my next book on sustainability and to present power point presentations at conferences, instead of lugging my computer.

    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

    hello, i have a horticulture/art background, i read up on plant material especially ornamental grasses and perennials for U.S. climate zones 4-6. i dont own a car and my main form of transportation is bike or public transit and sometimes planes. ipads are light weight for going out in the field and travel, also this device could organize notes or entries.

    Thank you.

    Because the iPad currently is a highly entertaining-to-use entertainment machine, I would probably restrict my uses to:
    (1) ebooks, which are the best single way of reducing greenhouse gases, and saving the forests as a result, for individuals of conscience
    (2) screening of all the pics and videos that I have saved over a lifetime of travelling and of living in places as widely diverse as Papua-New Guinea 60 years ago, central Australia teaching Aboriginal children and adults over a period, off and on, of 60 years
    (3) touring most of the Great Britain and Ireland, and Europe, Scandinavia, Greece, Turkey, Morocco. the South Pacific Doing so on my PC keeps me too tethered to its bulky location!
    Business use? Not a #(4) reason yet – but the iPad tech on this aspect will undoubtedly soon be with us. In the meantime I know that using one would be , for me, a satisfying response to the world\’s cry for a planet greener than the one we are facing!

    I saw one of these cool ipad cases that was being used by an executive at the company I work for in Silicon Valley. Very cool, green and best of all – doesn’t advertise for Apple!

    I have worked for years – studying Green Building innovations in my spare time at night. It all paid off in the last six months. At my job I do building code upgrades and rehabilitation of homes for low and moderate income families. I was able to submit my ideas for Energy Audits and air-sealing of these houses to my state to made this standard for every retrofitted older home. A dream would be a community of eco-friendly sustainable houses across the US!
    I am working now toward a LEED Green Associate certification.
    An IPad would be a dream come true! It would open channels, ideas, contacts, and great apps that would help me run with my ideas!

    Reading is a difficult task for me in general,since I am dyslexic. So currently I don\’t read to many books. The ipad can help me to enjoy more books since I could read books quicker, and understand more, by translating the text to speech or listening to audio books. Especially ones that deal with environmental planning and related topics. I love reading good articles of magazines in inhabitat, der spiegel, greenpeace that especially have to do with environment, ecology and politics and also sharing great articles, information, petitions through facebook and twitter.
