While the name makes us snicker (hello, does Apple have any women working for them?), it's definitely worth noting that Apple released the iPad yesterday. The tablet is an amped-up iPod touch, but the practical applications are strong - recipes in the kitchen, movies in bed, light enough to travel with ease. You can get a Wi-Fi iPad (starting at $499) to use on existing Wi-Fi networks, or, for wireless access anywhere, you can pony up some extra dough for the 3G iPad (starting at $629). This is a cool, cutting-edge piece of technology for having fun on the run or a handy 'computer' to use around the house, but if you're looking for a compact workhorse, we're not sure it's the best option.
