Help Me With My Thesis

Can you believe it's that time again? Yes. I am writing another (and let's pray my last) thesis paper. To give you a little history, here is my statement: "What iPad business models are working best to create profitable magazines, and what obstacles still limit this current style of publication?"

I will be analyzing the history of the iPad, studying its turbulent relationship with the publishing world, and doing a case study of three national magazines using tablet technology. 

This is where I need your help. I'm curious about why the consumer (aka you and me) is interested in e-technolgy, and more specifically, the iPad. 
If you have a second, please select an answer from the below poll. If you would not buy an ipad, feel free to tell me why so in the comments section. 

General discussion is welcome, as is passing this link around to friends. Thanks everyone!

I bought one for husband. An English major, I can't see myself using one for books. Nor can anyone of four in my family - we like holding books and turning the pages. We collect books and have a decent library at home. Daughter and I like leather-bound books.

not planning on buying one. I love my mac book and don't see the point in having a large ipod touch (which i currently own)

So, what happened to your thesis project, Britney? Social media nowadays can really be a big help in our life. Just like you, you use it to formulate your thesis abstract to help with your thesis project. Anyway, I do hope everything went well with it.
