This work almost perfectly. No gestures and the ipad dock keyboard seems causing the bottom portion where the onscreen keyboard would normally be to not be receptive to clicks (move events work). This is really a nice setup because if you are using RDP/VNC, the precision of the touch is not high enough to be productive. Also makes it easier to edit documents with text selection and highlighting of block.

I think we'll have to figure out what are the practical applications for various configurations of the iPad. While I might be able to hook it up to a keyboard and mouse on a stand - if I'm doing that a half foot from my desktop or laptop - is there a point?
That will most likely be figured out in the near future - and I would guess that software / OS upgrades should take care of most of these issues.
As I sit back and look at my iPad - I keep reminding myself that I need to KISS (keep it simple stupid) - and use the base functionality as intended.
Sure - I know how to push hardware - I had a Samsung Omnia, jailbroken, running cooked OS's - new WM 6.5 with the GPS unlock, etc. I spend days and days and days working on various tweaks to the OS - functionality boosts, etc. Bottom line - I didn't care for the software or how it worked.
Most probably tapped on my iPad!
Going home and trying this today!!
