Steve Jacob’s presentation of the Ipad from the NY Post.
Think of the iPad like the combination of all the things you love about Mac computers, the iPod touch and iTunes into one relatively small, light weight device. With its Safari browser, you can read just about any eBook or books on kindle at lightning speed and get work done on its touch screen keypad anywhere. iPad’s features include full screen versions of calendars, notes, to-do lists, viewing photos, watch YouTube videos, listen to your iTunes and more.
Read on for the technical specifications of the iPad from apple.com’s website.

Posted originally by a Dutch Hacker who released this virus into the wild but later had a change of heart after his paypal was shutdown and the hack was widely discussed. The url shortener service which was directing to the fix (doiop.com/iHacked) was shutdown so please spread this fix to anyone affected. Originally posted at http://mr09.fileave.com/
“1. Get an SSH program like putty for windows.
2. SSH to your iPhone. (If you haven’t done that before it may take a while, and after that there might come a warning about a key fingerprint. You can just accept that). Login using username "root" and password "alpine". (this is the default password)
3. There’s a few commands you have to execute, best is to just copy them:
chown mobile /private/var/mobile/Library/LockBackground.jpg
chmod 666 /private/var/mobile/Library/LockBackground.jpg
mv /private/var/mobile/Documents/LockBackground.backup.jpg /private/var/mobile/Library/LockBackground.jpg
4. That’s everything to remove my stuff. Now there’s one command left to make sure this won’t happen again! Again in putty or any ssh client type: "passwd". You’ll then be asked for a new password, you can change this into anything you want. The safer the better of course (:
The reason you have to change this password is that it’s default is alpine at ALL iPhones. So if anyone knows that (and all hackers do) they can access your iPhone. Now you’ve changed it this isn’t possible anymore!
If you have any questions or something, mail me and I’ll try to answer them!

Always a popular choice the next version of the MacBook Pro is ready to charge.
The battery follows suit from the 17inch MacBook Pro by including a non-removable battery. Not been able to swap out the battery will no doubt irk some road warriors but Apple is betting the saved space and the adaptive charging implemented will be enough to keep the peace. They are confident the battery will last 5 years before starting to lose capacity.
How long will it last you is the big question using the standard Nvidia 9400M you are looking at around 7 hours with about an hour less for the Nvidia 9600M GT.
To extend your short term battery life remember to dim your screen if possible and turn off Airport.
To extend the long term battery life make sure your battery is used regularly (having your MacBook always plugged in is not good for it’s battery).
Is the fact that you can’t swap out the battery going to sway anyone towards another model?
