The iPad has already been a success by any normal standard as far as technology devices and numbers sold, but Apple isn't happy with just a normal standard. They set the bar high, and they have a way of changing our culture and what we expect in a device.

What will the future be like for our children down the road? Who can say, but what we can say is that right now our children are already vastly more technologically advanced then we were at the same age.

This youtube video of an iPhone savvy child's first time using the iPad is an amazing example of how powerful the human species can be... and how quickly we can learn and adapt to a new way of life. Just for reference, the child in this video is only 2.5!

Watch the video and be as amazed as I am at how quickly the child can pick up how to navigate!

For those of us who dabble in the stock market there is a burning question: Apple stock is up huge this year, is it too late to cash in?

My personal opinion is no, it's not yet too late even with the meteoric rise of AAPL stock.

I'm not the only one either, Jim Cramer as well as a number of other notable investors seem to think there is still plenty of room for the stock to go up as well. The following link is a great collection of some news stories that discuss the issue in more detail:


If there’s one gaming series that’s every bit the match of the iPad when it comes to innovation and style, it would have to be the Metal Gear Solid series. Those fans wondering just how good the Metal Gear Solid world would look on the iPad haven’t had to wait too long to find out, as Konami has today announced that the iPad version of Metal Gear Solid Touch is now available from the Apple App Store for $7.99.

Although Meta Gear Solid Touch has previously been available for the iPhone, the iPad version now features gameplay that capitalizes on the iPad’s larger screen and innovative Multi-Touch user interface.

The Metal Gear Solid Touch App for iPad is a fast-paced touch- shooting action title that uses settings and elements from the best-selling Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. Users guide hero Snake by sliding their fingers across the screen to swiftly zoom in and out, target enemies, and execute rapid fire attacks with quick taps on the screen, not forgetting to take cover when necessary, of course! The app makes full use of the iPad’s Multi-Touch user interface and intuitive controls to offer a different type of MGS gaming experience. Here’s Joe Morris, Konami’s Vice President of Mobile Content and Social Networking talking about the game:

Ever wonder what the actual CPU inside the Apple iPad looks like? No no, I'm not talking about the external packaging, I'm talking about the very innards of it, the internal die and actual silicon?

Well, the iFixit guy's have done the 'tear down' procedure again but this time they actually had the Apple A4 CPU professionally dissected and disassembled.

Hello my name is Dan and I'm an eBay junkie. If I'm not browsing a forum reading or posting messages, you can probably find me at eBay. From Gadgets to Camera Gear, to Cars, to Trucks, to ATVs, to Motorcycles I'm always looking for a deal. One of the first apps I downloaded today after receiving my unit was eBay for iPad. This new eBay application is designed and optimized specifically for the iPad and best of all, it's free.

Once loaded, the first thing you'll notice is a clean and completely new interface displaying the daily deals. Using the search bar to quickly punch in a keyword, I was off searching for cars in no time. It quickly displayed items relevant to my search in a beautiful magazine style layout. From the results page, there is a top navigation bar that offers you a few more options to narrow down your search results. A couple of taps and my results were narrowed down to exactly the category I was interested in. While browsing through the car auctions, I felt more like I was browsing through an "Auto Classifieds" magazine with only much more detail. One click on an item lets you view the entire description, access the photo gallery, view seller feedback and place a bid.

After using Ebay for iPad, I can honestly say this app combined with the portability of the iPad is superior to browsing on a desktop, laptop, or netbook computer. The eBay for iPad experience is streamlined, colorful, and simpler to use than ever before! It also features integrated access to My eBay that makes it easy for members to quickly check on an auction or monitor sales activity from wherever their iPad has taken them.
