iPads Used For Play, Not Work: Citigroup Survey - Peter Kafka - Media So, yes. You could, theoretically, use your iPad to replace the PC you used to use for work. But you’re probably not: You’re probably using it as a recreational device, to surf the Web and entertain yourself. So says a new Citigroup survey of 1,800 consumers in the U.S., the U.K. and China.
