Can anyone challenge the iPad 2?

Can anyone challenge the iPad 2?, article.
"You really appreciate Apple’s presentation style when you look at other vendor events. A few weeks ago, HP (and I could likely put any vendor name in here) had an event to launch its TouchPad. Before the event was even over, bloggers were wishing for sharks to eat the presenters. It was like the executives sucked any excitement out of the room."

Isn't it funny how a business executive with life and charisma is almost a contradiction in terms? It is just interesting how rare this is.

iPad 2 is here

Info and links on the new iPad 2. It's a nice evolutionary upgrade. Not a must-have upgrade for those who have the first one already, but if you've been on the fence about getting an iPad, now is the time for sure.

Video on e-ink page!

Conventional wisdom says e-ink (Kindle page) tech is too slow for video and such things. It seems times are a-changing.

I had not heard of Bookeen, but their ereader devices seem interesting.
I like that you can change font size by gesturing on the screen, I've been wondering why nobody has done that simple thing yet!

Serious apps

On top of the super fun of the iPad, there are more and more really advanced apps for it, it's a powerful tool. Just for one small example, see this advanced text/coding editor. This is really professional s**t here... on an iPad.
