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.

(time for my bi yearly post)
I have no use or need for a tablet or a cell phone, but did go to Apple's website and actually read about the device.

Let me clear a couple things up for a few whiners.
I see it comes with accessories, a docking station/charger, a camera connection kit, (two connectors), and a power cable.

Can't plug in a full size keyboard?
Yes you can.

Need an SD card reader?
Comes with one.

Need usb?
Use the usb connector.

Seems you can run the full iWork suite on it as well.
Do the other tablets run Microsoft Office?

Legitimate question, I don't know, not up on my tablet and cell phone jargon.

Windows-based tablets run Microsoft Office, photoshop, games, really anything you decide to install. They have full access to the the entire Windows software universe. If you need a tablet to run photoshop, buy one with the power to do it, and you're good.

This one can't even run Flash.
