Apple And it was that time of the year again - Apple held one of its product announcements. This one focussed on the iPad mostly, and while some will call it a disappointment merely because virtually everything had already been leaked, I'm still in awe over the fact the newly announced iPad has a 2048x1536 display. My mind is blown.

Awesome! Now tell me how do you add your podcasts to the iPad without connecting it to another computer, using only the software that came with it from Apple?

That also works for iPad. Do you want to disqualify it just because it doesn't come from Apple? There are about 500,000 apps in the app store; if you just counted what came with the tablet, that wouldn't be a very useful device. Hell, I don't think there's anything built into Windows either that will download podcasts.

he just wants to have the same functionality on the stock app (that is supposed to manage your media) as the one in the desktop.

i understand him because it is also one of my pet peeves when i had the ipad(1). so a friend of my introduced me to doggcatcher in android. now my wife is happy with an ipad and i am happy with a transformer 2. ;)

Thank you, it's nice to see someone who gets it.

I was really hoping that the release of the iPad HD would include a fully functional iTunes client as well as the rest of the iLife suite, which would push me towards getting one. Now instead I think I will probably just get a basic cheap Android tablet as "good enough" and sit out the iPad another rotation and see if the guys at Apple will allow their baby to leave the nest in the next revision. Could come sooner than later, given the rumors of an impending release of iOS 6 by summer... Maybe by then?
