    I think the Ipad would be a great tool for the NFL. If apple could work with the NFL to develop and app or some type of plug-in for reviewing photos from the sideline. Players look at photos of the current game that are printed out and put in a binder, the Ipad would be great for a QB or offensive coordinator to just flip through the photos. Also, offensive coordinators could have all their plays on the Ipad with multiple pages instead of having to highlight all the plays with a marker on a laminated sheet of paper. It would also be great marketing for the Ipad.

    Apple does NOT team up with people to makes apps, that is why they release an SDK (software Development Kit) to developers. If the NFL wants to do something that is completely up to them, NOT apple.

    ok, take it easy man. I was just posing an idea without being privi to how Apple and apps operate. Seeing how the iPad is a "tweener" device (large iPhone) it really does not have a purpose to the average consumer unless they want to purchase one in order to be perceived as being hip.

    The iPad will be my sketch pad. I've been dreaming of such a device for years now. The Touch interface will be a fantastic tool!:D

    I COMPLETELY disagree just because ir physically looks like a large iphone does not mean it is one. Take for example the iWork apps that were demoed during the keynote for the iPad, running those on an iPhone would be a horrible experience.

    The people I know are NOT planing on purchasing the iPad because it is "hip" they want it because it is more powerful then an iPhone but more personal then a computer.

    You cant even really call it a game changer. It NOT an iPhone/iPod Touch and its also not a full computer. Its more of a new game.

    The iPad isn't a "tweener" device at all, for many people it will be genuinely useful. You might think it's just the next fashion accessory, but there are those of us who will actually get a lot of functionality out of it.

    You're both right. If you think about it, the longest activity we do with a computer is using the web.

    But we have to realise that although we can do some serious work on the iPad, it wasn't meant to be a workstation.It's a Swiss Army knife, not a tablesaw.

    One major restriction that worries me so far is the lack of printing support. That is a major hindrance on certain types of work productivity.

    I pray that you're right because everything I've seen so far shows against it.
    Someone else told me that printing would be application dependant. Some aps will print, others not.
