Do technical editors still use hard copy for edits? (Is this a personal
preference or a department/company policy? For example, personally, I like
to see a hardcopy to edit, and then I make my edits electronically.)

It varies. I do not but 2 of my colleagues do. I edit electronically.

When editing electronically, do you use track changes (such as MS Word)? Do
you edit in Adobe products (such as Acrobat Pro)? Do you use iPad
applications (such as IAnnotate, Cabinet, or QuickEdit)?

Yes - track changes in Word and the editing tools in Acrobat for PDFs. I do
not use iPad applications to edit.

How do tablets figure in to your editing?
Not at all.
