Clutches the iPad like it’s a baby. May actually think of it as a baby.
iPads are not just tablet computers, they're fashion accessories, and how you wield yours says something about your own personal sense of style. On a recent airplane trip from Oakland, Calif., to Albuquerque, N.M., I saw iPads being used by just about every demographic imaginable, to do a dizzying assortment of things, from reading books and documents to checking email and posting Facebook updates to playing games and watching movies. And there are as many ways for a user to hold his or her iPad as there are uses for the devices – and how you relate to the tablet probably says something about the person you are -- or wish you were. A big part of the appeal of all Apple machines is their coolness factor, and since people like the way they look with an iPad in their hands, it's only logical that they'd want to complete that look with a distinctive method for clutching the slender status symbols. Here are ten iPad handling techniques we've identified. Perhaps one of them sounds familiar to you.
