Apple In what everybody already saw coming for weeks (months) now, Apple has just unveiled its latest product, a tablet called the iPad. Basically a bigger version of the iPhone, Steve Jobs presented the iPad during a press event in San Francisco. The most interesting news? It's powered by... An Apple processor, called the A4. The most shocking news? The price.

Some highlights:

"9:46– woz just arrived. He’s high."

"10:14–touch screen–who’d a thunk it? just click on a story with your finger and you can read a story from ny times. they said this couldn’t be done.

10:16– if i keep talking about how fast it is, maybe people won’t notice how slow it is. see how i do that? i say i’m “zipping around” and you don’t notice that it takes 4 seconds to load a graphics heavy page.

10:18– something is wrong. why are the hacks not sighing and gasping and cheering?"

"10:51–and wow you can watch baseball on it. it’s just like watching on your TV, only smaller. amazing. it’s called 'paving the cowpath.' have you heard of it?"

"10:56– just like Kindle, only more expensive. and you know you want it. and yes i did once say that e-readers were pointless because nobody reads books anymore. and now i’m making one. does this make sense? absolutely."
