I am retired, but I am so close to getting a touchpad and starting a business doing turnkey projects. I see all kinds of things you can use it for. i.e. kitchen computer for getting recipes.,we have a web page for doing measurement conversions and a web based recipe data base.

Finally acquired some parts such as a pir sensor to update my instructables for doing security with a computers. More on that later.

Thinking about getting a touch pad/tablet. so I can get more into home automation. Now I just use an old celeron based laptop with eop (ethernet over power lines) that I drag around the house to access the web server. Writing code in php and using mysql more and more.
