    I have my Playbook for 2 weeks now and was hoping to get some ideas on how I can utilize it. I own an electrical company and was hoping I would be able to incorporate this Playbook into making me more efficient as well as having my guys that work for me.
    Thank you,
    Travis

    To surf the web when I'm taking a 5hit. Or web surf when I don't feel like getting out of bed.

    Citrix for work related items,
    I've ditched the Laptop and use the playbook for everthing other than MS Office.

    but the best is Porn nothing like bringing the pb into the washroom for a good number 3.

    There were some threads on here about how people use their playbooks and some loved them for their business but I guess it depends on the business.

    You might find these interesting even though getting a while back.

    i use mine to:

    1.make material lists
    2. fill out takeoff sheet
    3.take jobsite photos and email to customers
    4.take video of damage and post to youtube and forward secure link to customers.(thanks for the idea blackjack)
    4.take video for one of my business related blogs. (good for seo)
    5.answer emails
    6.post to social media. (again, big on building backlinks and website seo)
    7.watch amazon prime (pushing daisies this week) hooked up via hdmi
    8.check weather when working outdoors. need real time doppler radar.

    when they offer a real excel doc editing app i'll do my estimates and invoicing on it. A print app would be nice. i have a wireless printer, but can't print from the playbook

    Yesterday i found myself on the road when an urgent request for a quote came in. i bridged to my Torch, downloaded and opened the pdf drawing I was quoting on and used the pricing spreadsheet I created in Docs2Go on my Torch to calculate the quote. Typed up the quote on the PB and sent it off.

    The rest of the time, I use it to browse the web, especially when there is no wifi available. Bridge is sweeeeet. Also take videos of client projects.

    I use mine mostly for surf'n the web and playing games. Probably do the same if I used it for business too, lol. j/k

    Thought I saw project tracking app in AppWorld -- perhaps you could give that a try if you wanted to track tasks/projects.

    Most of the above.

    I also built a post and small platform for my PB that hangs from the ceiling just above my treadmills interface. I stream news/weather/traffic in the morning while I work out.

    I find mine very useful for my spanish class with google translate loaded up using wifi at the community centre. It is awesome and I am loving the playbook cause it is the right size for on the go, I recommend it to friends, but I want RIM to focus and make it better!

    I surf, check sports scores, weather and today I was short on time so I was able to quickly order food online and then grab it on the way by all while bridged.
