I have been rather disappointed in this group today. With the whole world talking about Apple's new iPad computer I would have expected a place with so many pad experts (where is Jeff?) and pad discussions to have taken up the challenge.

Fortunately we can look to the women for help on this topic

Age:  63 
Biopsy: May 09 showed 2 of 12 cores positive for prostate cancer -- 1 at 5% and 1 at 25%.  Cancer indicated as non aggressive.  Gleason Score: 3+3.
RRP on Oct 23/09 in London, Ontario.  Excellent surgeon. 
7 Weeks Post Op -  The fears I had about bad things about the operation and recovery did not materialise except of course ED!!.  Otherwise, everything went very smoothly.  Incontinence not a problem.  Wear a pad when out just in case. Pain was never a problem.
Pathology:  Unremarkable 
First followup PSA and Visit: Feb 07/10.

I'm sorry it missed this opportunity! I am out on a business trip all week and have only had a few minutes to look at this site. Breakfasts, Dinners, etc.
We are planning to go to a Thai restaurant tomorrow after our meeting. I will definitely not order the Pad Thai.

I don't think iPads will do well. For one they are too expensive to change once they get soaked. And they lack flexibility.

On the other hand, Depends lacks the numerous applications available for iPads. And it can be very advantageous listening to iTunes while controlling issues with incontinence. But I just don't see myself playing any games with Depends. Ergonomically, Depends will also have to add a wireless interface, it certainly won't won't bode well having to use a USB interface all the time...

Any thoughts about email and incontinence? My first thought is that iPad will have an advantage over Depends in dealing with spam. Certainly a better user interface.
