Not much has changed.

I use it for light surfing, mainly in the living room and kitchen.  Don't type much on it because the keyboard is awkward, but use it to check news, stocks, weather, read forums, check directions and store hours.

The biggest use case for me seems to be for 30 second, impulsive web checking around the house for things like these:
- (watching tv) Where have I seen that actor before?
- (watching tv) What's that song playing in the background?
- (glancing at lawn) Is it going to rain in the next few days?
- (having breakfast, watching CNBC) Did my limit order sell before I woke up?
- (having second breakfast, watching CNN) wtf did that crawl headline just say about the oil spill, is there a new development?
- (having brunch, watching ESPN) Did that guy just say that Favre is questioning whether or not he'll play next year?
- (having a vocabulary lapse) What's the word I'm thinking of?
- (on the way out the door) I'd better make sure that Asshat Emporium is still open this late and at the same address.
- (unable to sleep in the middle of the night) How many apps did I sell today?

(before the iPad, I'd probably just pass on these things since I've have to get the laptop from the office and wait for it to get out of standby, but the iPad is usually nearby and instant-on.)

It's definitely a supplemental machine and not a replacement in our house.

I never bought a case, so it doesn't really leave the house much.
