What’s on Your iPad – with Rob LeFebvre

Home Screen

This is the second post in what I hope will become a regular series here at iPad Insight – What’s on Your iPad. I love seeing how others get the best out of their iPad and learning from them – which are their favorite apps, their most-used productivity apps, and all about their iPad usage.

I’m thrilled to have Rob LeFebvre as the subject of What’s on Your iPad today. Rob is an Editor, Writer, Techie, and a Special Educator. He’s the owner of GameAreEvil, editor at 148apps, a freelance writer at GamesBeat, Cult of Mac, and Shelf Awareness, and a Techie Educator at ATLA.

So here we go – questions are in italics with a grey background, Rob’s answers are in block quotes:

Which iPad model do you use? (original or iPad 2, WiFi or WiFi + 3G, storage
size) Any particular reasons for choosing this model?

I bought an iPad 1, WiFi only when they first came out. I quickly
realized the joy of 3G on the iPad, and sold the first one and got an
iPad WiFi + 3G at the 32G mark. Bigger was in fact better in this
case. Being able to connect to the internet when travelling was the

it for reviews. I still use this one for all my 148Apps/TPG
activities.

What’s on Your iPad – with Robert Stephens

First Home Screen

This is the start of what I hope will become a regular series here at iPad Insight – What’s on Your iPad. I love seeing how others get the best out of their iPad, which are their favorite apps, their most-used productivity apps, and more about their iPad usage.

I’m very happy and grateful to have Robert Stephens as my first subject for the What’s on Your iPad series. Robert is the founder of the Geek Squad and the Chief Technology Officer for Best Buy. A man who knows his tech and knows how to put it to good use, as you’ll see from his thoughtful answers below. So here we go – questions are in italics with a grey background, Robert’s answers are in block quotes:

Which iPad model do you use? (original or iPad 2, WiFi or WiFi + 3G, storage size) Any particular reasons for choosing this model?

iPad2 32Gb WiFi only. I use only WiFi because I have iPhone tethering plan, which simplifies and avoids the need to carry a hotspot or pay for 3G

Do you use any sort of case with the iPad? If so, which one/s and why?

Only the iPad Smart Cover. I agree with Steve Jobs when he said "We put all this effort into making the iPad 2 so thin and people thicken it up with a case". I also like the wear and marks that the aluminum back acquires over time.
