First. I'm not a douche. Second. I live in socal - land of douches. Third. I specifically asked about book/magazine replacement. Nothing about movies. If this is supposed to replace books why would I bring an actual book or magazine? Isn't that the main purpose of this thing?i paid way too much for it to get dropped, or things to get dropped on it, or for it to get smashed between equipment, or for it to get stolen, or sweat to collect in between the cracks, the list goes on.....
you don't bring your laptop to the gym (at least i hope you don't), and the ipad theoretically makes you look like a douch if you're watching a movie while working out. go home and watch the movie, that's not what the gym is for. you're especially asking for a beating if you don't have headphones connected.
bring a magazine or book if you want to read, carry the ipod or iPhone if you want to listen to music, but please don't bring your ipad and watch movies.
My gym has TVs that are in front of a bike and they only work when you are peddeling. They also have a biking video game in the kids area where you have to pedal to get the game to run then stear with the handles. It is pretty cool. I do think It would be awesome if a gym ran on people exercising.Plug into the matrix.
Every time I walk into the gym I think that they should hook up all those machines to a generator. You'd have a completely manpowered building, I bet.

Also - if I'm going just to do cardio, I don't see it being a problem, propped up on the stand....
I'll give that the main purpose isn't to read books. Fine. I still say that an iPad replaces a Kindle, it's not a supplement to a Kindle.first, i wasn't initially calling you a douche. second, i live in socal too. be glad you live in the nicer part. In los angeles you would get robbed (and half beaten to death by people looking for other nice things like an iPhone) the moment no one is looking; if you don't believe me, feel free to stop by hollywood or compton. the worst isn't in the middle of the night, its in the early evening when there are too many people that it's hard to single anyone out. third, i was addressing someone else's suggestion about the movies and how you would be perceived by other patrons. hey, if you don't want honest feedback then go ahead, but don't say no one warned you.
oh, and the main purpose of the ipad wasn't meant to just read books. that's what a kindle is for. it was also meant for more places rather than the gym. there's just some places you shouldn't bring things, and i don't recommend bringing an iPad to the gym.
