IPad comes out
So Apples new tablet come out, i've mixed feelings on it, on the plus side its a major new platform with chance to experiment with a whole range of user interaction for touch screens, seeing what works there. But on the other hand, it take the lock down of iphone from the security want on a phone, onto a computer. Apple has the control both of what applications you can place on your iPad, and what application might can be devoloped its very much not a free in the political sense of free platform. We've yet to see weather it will be successful, and with apples marketing might, i'm sure many will be sold, the question is how large the niche will be for the apple ipad.
