There She Is!!

I'm sorry I'm years late on this one. But if you haven't seen this amazing work of Korean animation check it out. This is a quite cute love story though it take a serious turn around part 3. Do watch all 5 steps, as a complete series this work really is much more than the simple sum of its parts.

iCame, iSaw, iPad

Ok you can go read about the iPad on if you have been in a cave and don't know what it is. Millons of bloggers has described what it does and I'm not going to repeat them (except worse) here.

Here's what I want to know before March:
  • Textbooks! Steve said "We are very excited about textbooks as well" This is the primary appeal the iPad has to me. How can I get my hundreds of dollars and tens of pounds of textbooks on this little device. If not from Apple, CourseSmart has promised tablet textbook support and even made a mock up. Textbooks are the main reason I would want a iPad.
  • Tethering: I pay AT&T 30$ a month for 3G on my iPhone. Let me tether a iPad to it if your not willing to allow full computers. Preferably tethering over Wi-Fi or bluetooth so I don't need to blow an extra 130$ on a 3G chip. Hell I'll plug the iPad into the phone if that's what it takes.
  • iTunes Extras/LPs: Just make 'em work on the iPad. There is no excuse.
  • Student Discount?????????? Pretty Pwease??

To be honest multitasking isn't a huge dealbreaker for me because I would buy the iPad for educational use. Its probably good the device doesn't let me have 50 windows/programs open when I'm trying to study.

Some features I think would be cool to have in the iPad (but don't count on it):
  • Plug your iPhone into the iPad and play media off the phone. Why should I carry two portable devices with my full library on them? this would be great to play someone else's iPod on the iPads larger screen easily.
  • Flash? Please?
  • Function as a secondary monitor to one's mac when docked. Its a big beautiful screen and this would sell tons of docks.
  • LogMeIn for iPad. Like LogMeIn Ignition for iPhone but on a useable screen size.
  • It should make toast. Apple devices do get very hot so this is not as far-fetched as you might hope.
  • hulu. Seriously, make an app hulu, just make a frigging app. I am the point where I will PAY for it.
  • The rumored apple tv show subscription would be nice too.
