    The iPad Apple Store is live:

    Some leaked apps (apparently the iPad apps will have "HD" attached to it, to denote readiness for the bigger display)

    - Ammoin HD
    - Azkend HD
    - Children’s Animal Sounds for iPad
    - Children’s Vehicle Sounds for iPad
    - Cogs HD
    - Collage HD
    - Coloring Book for iPad
    - Cro-Mag Rally for iPad
    - Flight Control HD
    - Galaxy Collider HD
    - Glow Hockey 2 HD
    - Grind HD
    - HD Recovery
    - JellyCar 2 on iPad
    - Labyrinth 2 HD
    - London Tube Maps for iPad
    - NaviCAD for iPad
    - NBA Hotshot HD
    - NBA Spin
    - Numba HD
    - Plants vs Zombies HD
    - Rocket Solitare for iPad
    - Sherlock Holmes Mysteries for iPad
    - Sinterra HD
    - Sparkle HD
    - Worms HD
    - Zen Bound 2
    Notice how most of the these leaked titles include the word “HD”, to distinguish iPad games, designed for larger displays than the iPhones.
    So far so good, Apple is making sure they do a good job in the apps department, shaping things up just the way people want them to be by bringing out exciting new apps and gaming titles. Be ready to download a bunch of apps for your iPad, come April 3rd. [via TUAW]

    Well, I'll post it here, since it has nothing to do with iPad's role in the car.

    What I've been hearing a lot: too big for one hand, the iPod Touch is better that way. However, at the same time it's too small to hold with both hands, at least if you have big hands. It should be maybe a 12.1" to assume a big screen role properly perhaps (a smaller bezel would help).

    Just saying.

    Now that was funny:

    Chief Executive Steve Jobs cajoled many of the big name newspapers and magazines to create a special edition of their publications for the device. The not-so-subtle message is that you are all toast. Your future is the iPad.
    And while this may or may not be true, it added a new dimension to the promotion machine: conflict of interest.

    What kind of reviews can we expect to find in those same grandiose publications? Well you can be sure that they are not going to slam their future distribution medium.



    Drinking the Kool-Aid


    Curiously, all the reviewers never mention that this is the first pad produced in the last decade that has no stylus input. You cannot take notes on the thing. I thought that was the basic reason for these pads in the first place.
    But no matter, it's really a content delivery device in much the same way as the iPod was a content delivery device. You buy content, via Apple, and off you go.


    iPad, Buy Now or Wait?


    Hours away from the much-anticipated release of the Apple iPad, the Digits panel discusses whether you should buy now or wait. Plus, the top apps for the tablet computer.

    So if you drink the Kool-Aid, you'll be reading Newsweek and Time and all the dying print magazines and newspapers on the iPad.
    No matter that you are not reading these journals now. For some unexplained reason you'll want to read them on the iPad. How does that make any sense?
    The big publishing companies that think that their success or failure is totally dependent on the content delivery mechanism will be in for a surprise. The big winners on the iPad, if any, will be the feet-already-wet publications that have learned from long experience how to produce reader-friendly content for the screen

    Also: very cool questions you might have about the iPad answered by Gizmodo.

    Example:

    How does it hold up for reading in bright sunlight?
    I found that the iPad's just fine in the bright Florida sun unless I'm wearing polarized sunglasses. When wearing such sunglasses, I needed to raise the brightness level to make reading more comfortable and still didn't find it all that appealing.

    How accurate is the positioning system, as in Google Maps?
    I was pleasantly surprised that the iPad accurately narrowed my position down to a two-street radius in several different locations. It's not perfect—it took several tries to get it to find my location in some places—but it's decent enough.

    What are the maximum number of apps/screens it can handle?
    Eleven screens with 20 apps per screen plus the four apps on the home row appears to be the limit.


    Is it really easy to smudge up the screen? Will you have to keep wiping it clean?
    It gets dirty with skin oils like any glass, but it's easy to wipe it off thanks to the oleophobic surface.

    How bad is the online porn viewing experience hurt by the lack of flash?
    Well, that depends on what sites you like. Most porn sites support the iPad and the iPhone/iPod touch because they use standard MPEG4 video. You can watch our guide for porn on the iPhone here.

    Read the whole thing, very useful info.

    I would have to defiantly have to make dash mods in order to fit a screen that big in my truck. But would it be worth the effort? I don't know yet.
