In the market for a luxury car and an iPad? Well, Hyundai has the package for you! The Equus is Hyundai's flagship new luxury sedan. It features a 378-horsepower v8 and a 9.7-inch LED backlit glossy screen. According to USA Today the Equus owner's manual will only be available on the iPad.
All the features on the new Equus will be contained in the iPad for quick reference, but owners can use it for any of it's other features as well. Hyundai Motor America CEO John Krafcik referred to the iPad as an "interactive" owners manual.

Including an iPad in the luxury car will up the car's gotta-have factor, predicts William Matthies of research firm Coyote Insight, who follows developments in automotive electronics. "Many will respond positively to the inclusion of an iPad, not because they needed or planned to buy one, but simply because it is topical and cool," Matthies says.
We all know the auto industry is like a bunch of lemmings. One manufacturer offers an incentive, next month they all do it. How soon before other auto manufacturers follow with similar offers? Let us know your thoughts!

Engadget reports this morning that the WSJ has finally revealed the official price for the WSJ iPad app subscription. The cost will be $3.99 per week, $17.29 monthly, which is very close to what Engadget originally said the cost would be. So what do you actually get for all that money? Well according to the WSJ’s subscription page, you get subscriber-only content such as Business, Markets, and Opinion, a seven-day archive download for reading offline, saved sections and articles for reading later, and “My Journalâ€, for saving and sharing articles across WSJ.com and mobile. If you’re already a WSJ subscriber, you won’t have to pay the additional fee, and will have full access to the iPad app, but only for “a limited timeâ€, the WSJ states ominously, without mentioning how long that “limited time†will be. Three minutes, three months, three years? Who knows? Well the WSJ does, but so far it’s not telling. So what do you think? Too pricey? Will you be subscribing or just going for the free app?

Google has announced an optimized version of Gmail for the iPad. The new version includes a new interface taking advantage of the extra screen real estate the iPad has to offer.

"We're releasing an experimental user interface for the iPad built on the Gmail for mobile HTML5 web app that we launched last year for the iPhone and Android devices. Those devices have large screens compared to other phones, and tablets like the iPad give us even more room to innovate. To take advantage of the iPad's large display, we've created a two-pane view with your list of conversations on the left and messages to the right.
iPad users will be automatically presented with the new format when they navigate to gmail.com on the device."

PGA Tour professional Paul Azinger has already had a lot of success with Apple’s #1 Golf App, Golfshot: Golf GPS, which was the first universal instructional golf app based on actual golfer’s stats. Now he’s unveiled another app for the iPad as well as the iPhone and iPod touch, which is available now for $7.99 from the iTunes iPad Store.

The app is called “Golfplan with Paul Azinger”, and you can really see from the screenshot how well the app uses the iPad’s big screen. Golfplan is designed to automatically identify areas that need improvement in a golfer’s game and generate individualized practice plans to address those needs. The app addresses the five major areas of the golf game – driving, greens in regulation, scrambling, recovery, and putting. Golfplans are created by handicap or by using Golfshot statistics. Here’s what Azinger had to say about the app:

“Golfshot reinvented Golf GPS with the help of the iPhone and I wanted to change the paradigm of golf instruction using the iPad. It was only natural to partner with the Golfshot crew to create a revolutionary app to provide intuitive instruction for our members using their own golf stats.”

Golf fans, will you be taking your iPad onto the links with you?
