Allows you to run windows on your ipad, and for 5$ a month you can get a 1gig internet connection to your ipad...

I've got a project going at work to provide something like this (only at much higher resolution--ie not on an iPad) because some guy saw this and thought it was cool.

the ipad 3 with the Retna display would be interesting to see the video quality, and other items... If they do full resolution on the Retna.

I'm wondering how much of an improvement these crazy resolutions will make on such a small display? For example, the new Samsung Galaxy tablet is rumoured at 11.6" 2560 x 1600 aspect ratio of 16:10.

These tablets are going to need some very high quality batteries in them.

Technically the word is spelled correct, its just happes to be the wrong word....... i guess that is what i get for posting from my phone while in the library...... that is the one bad about the new phones, the screens seem to be just big enough to facilitate not noticing typos, until someone quotes you on the internet!!.... for me at least...
