Here's one for the masses... Whats say Apple's system on a chip is the arm core single/dual embeded in an fpga where by when new features are added or upgraded, the iOS package 'injects' the logic and then loads the os.
For example with 4.3 the feature being wifi hotspot... It's a controller feature that was added or modified to the fpga which in turn creates/enables the service. I wonder if anyones electronically diagnosed the chip?

You know what's weird... Magnets normally would distort compasses... So anyone know or understand why the maglock case would not distort, or does not distort the iPad compass? or is it due to the compass IC not being a magnet itself or perhaps too small to be impacted by the cover maglock field?

Bloody great stuff. I'm with Don on wanting 4G. It's just too big a leap to miss out on. I can't be buying an ipad each year, so i'll wait for 4G. But that's about it. The iPad is very nice and the upgrades did it, except for 4G and we know it's coming.

It'll be interesting to see if tablets like the iPad 2 can replace the desktops of businesses. Obviously, not the ones that require Microsoft Office or CAD software, but many of the salespeople's Windows PCs and laptops. Interesting times ahead for Microsoft, indeed.

I'd love for Apple to come up with their own gamepad accessory. This way I could put my future games onto my large HDTV and play with better controls. I want more PSP or Xbox like controls done in a slicker design. You could do it mr. ive. C'mon now.

I'm with Ron on the faster 4G. I don't get the big deal over the iPad upgrade. It's rather boring really. Everyone will do the dual cameras. This category is still in search for a killer app. Apple is the best but not good enough to fork over 800 or 900 bucks for. Not yet at least.

Other than the faster wireless 4G bump and more memory at a lower price, it's a great upgrade. I'll still hold off for 4G.

Nice to see them adding leather for the iPad cover. I'm still hoping for a next generation iPen. I still love doodling and playing with ideas quickly and a keyboard and my finger don't cut it.

I love the idea of that magnetic system for the new iPad covers. Imagine if they could come up with a magnetic hinged keyboard! Man would that be cool!

My wish list is a lower price on the 3G model and another choice other than white. I think white is so old. Why not something like a cool metal burgandy or copper finish.
