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.

I have some trouble with that assertion. The app store really hasn't worked that well for me: most of the apps I've bought haven't worked very well, if at all. I've tried a number of LDAP access apps, none of which currently work, and a number of task list apps, none of which have working integration with either my office exchange system or Google Tasks -- and I require at least one of those. I've tried a couple of the cute "light games" apps, only to find them... not nearly satisfactory for a heavy gamer (If I want to game on the go, it's going to be with my PSP, with it's much more deep and engaging games. I'll try iPhone gaming again when someone credibly ports Tekken 6 to it.).

Pretty much the only apps that I use now are the eBay and Amazon apps, the web browser and mail reader distributed with the OS, and occasionally, an RSS reader I downloaded. Value added? Sure, but not much.

But that's just me: judging by the phone's success, other people apparently just love the iPhone app store, and have tons and tons of amazing apps they use all the time.
