I do my online banking, I get my bills and correspondence via email, I check through a customized TV guide that only shows the channels I pay for to see what shows I might want to record, I often check Dtoid from my iPad. At night I sometimes listen to or watch a podcast, or even streaming TV... because my husband hates the light from the big TV in the bedroom. I can even set up my iPad to turn itself off in case I drift off to sleep and forget. I also have the option of using sleep apps that allow me to listen to rain drops or gentle waterfalls. I read free library books on my iPad and don't have to worry about late fees... or even going to the library. I love to read web based magazines... customized to my interests and always updated (Zite, Flipboard and Pulse).
Gaming... it's not quite there yet, but it's getting close. I for one, may embrace it when it finally arrives. Life should be integrated.
... and neither my PS3 nor my Xbox currently help me bake awesome cookies! :)
