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.

Ya know, I'm not sure if this type of device can actually succeed, or really has a market, or really has a decent use case.

And if Apple, with their great marketing and packaging and product track record, can't succeed with a Slate type product, then you can pretty much nail the coffin shut on Slate devices.

And if Microsoft, with their 90% market share and product track record, can't succeed with a search product, then you can pretty much nail the coffin shut on search services.

You can never count out the little guys with the big ideas...especially those working out of their garage. Just ask Jobs.
