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.

$499 is not great for that hardware. $299 would have been.

It's a luxury item. You don't need one if you already have a computer so why stop at $299? Why not just sell them for $10 a unit and throw in a free set of steak knives for the first fifty callers? :-)

That would entirely depend on the brand/quality of the steak knives...
