When I see a licensing agreement come up, I'm normally just looking for the "next" or "I Agree" to continue on my happy way. Well, thankfully all of us are not that way. Macrumors has dug into the iPad software licensing and found something that has sparked the interest of many. According to the documentation, it appears that the next major software update for the iPad will be free but future versions will come with a price tag.
Apple will provide you any iPad OS software updates that it may release from time to time, up to and including the next major iPad OS software release following the version of iPad OS software that originally shipped from Apple on your iPad, for free. For example, if your iPad originally shipped with iPad 3.x software, Apple would provide you with any iPad OS software updates it might release up to and including the iPad 4.x software release. Such updates and releases may not necessarily include all of the new software features that Apple releases for newer iPad models.

While iPhone users have enjoyed major software upgrades for free, this hasn't been the case for iPod Touch users. Let us know your thoughts!

Apple has posted a few iTune tips that will help you understand how to share your iTune libraries effectively between systems.

Sharing libraries via streaming:

You can enable it on the Sharing tab in the Preferences panel, which will allow your computer to look for the libraries others are sharing and let you choose whether to share your whole library or just selected items and playlists. When Sharing is turned on, shared libraries on your local network appear in the Shared section of the iTunes window’s left-hand column. You can play the content that appears there as if it were on your own computer.

Home Sharing:

lets the users of up to five computers on a home network copy over music or any other item they’d like to have in their own library. Then they can then enjoy it even if your computer is no longer on the network, and they can sync it to their own devices. To turn it on, use Turn On Home Sharing in the Advanced menu on each of the computers, and use the same active iTunes account to activate each one. Copying is then a simple matter of dragging from a shared library and dropping into your own.

Apple.com has just post a complete Video Tour Guide that is a must view for all potential iPad Owners! Grab a drink and some pop corn because it will take a while to make it through all 11 demos. The videos will guide you through using Apple's major iPad applications such as Safari, Mail, Photos, Videos, YouTube, iPod, iTunes, iBooks, Keynote, Pages, and Numbers.

Thanks for the tip Wot_Fan!

Fortune is out with a new report that indicates suppliers have revised their sales forecast for Apple's iPad due to the increasing demand. According to Morgan Stanley's Katy Huberty the iPad will have an impact on the sub $800 notebook market which account for 120 million units sold annually. Along with this news, Apple's stock hits a new high today of $233.87 per share.

  • iPad suppliers now forecast shipments of 8-10 million iPads in calendar 2010, up from their previous estimate of 5+ million.
  • Suppliers now expect to ship 2.5 million in the first three months alone (March to May), considerably ahead of Huberty's estimate of 750,000 by the end of June.
  • Shipments are not sales, however, and Huberty is sticking with her sales estimate of 6+ million iPads in 2010. The Street's consensus, she says, is closer to 3-4 million.
  • Each incremental one million iPads shipped, by her calculation, equates to earnings increases of roughly $0.25 EPS.
