    Since there's not much else of substance to talk about b/t now and April 3 :)

    For my part, I'd want to fully understand the file system as it relates to iWork, mobileme/iDisk, and apps in general.

    Is that boring?

    (by the way the fantasy here of course is that after a couple pages of questions SJ comes and posts all the answers. hey a guy can dream right? :D)

    "SJ, on what date will the iPad be available in the UK?"

    All else is academic to me right now. Though I would read all teh answers to everyone else's questions eagerly.

    Me: When will the Macbook Pro's have core iX processors?
    SJ: That's not an iPad question.
    Me: Oh, True. Ok. What is the exact date I can purchase an iPad in combination with a Mac Book Pro that has a Core iX processor?
    SJ: :/

    I sent SJ a message last night asking if the iPad could do color email signatures. I want my cool signature I have in outlook, but I can't get it in the iPhone even after hacking it.

    He probably won't respond. But I figured why not.

    • Are there features in iWork desktop that will not be there in iWork iPad?
    • If we purchase only one of the iWork apps, do we get access to iWork.com for free (for now)?
    • How do I sync contacts between my iPhone and iPad without Outlook, without syncing to Google, and without MobileMe (ie: without any go-between).
    • Can the camera attachment be potentially used as a usb flash disk reader?
    • Has Apple done any ergonomic studies during internal Apple pilot of iPad? How is this device on the arms and wrists for long term use? I know that holding up the iPhone for extended periods of time gets to be a pain - isn't a weight issue, just a position issue over a long period of time. Has there been negative impact on necks? Assuming there may be a fair bit of hunched over use that wouldn't affect a laptop.
    • Can the Apple iPad case be folded all the way back, so I can use it in portrait?
    • The VGA out adapter - can it show everything on the iPad screen (like your keynote demo), or just specific stuff, like a movie? I'd like to be able to project games. Can this be done?
    • Is Coverflow still there in iPod app? Didn't see it mentioned.
    • Can I turn 3G data off (ie: Airplane mode) so that I can save on my bandwidth?
    • (Might have been answered) Can I monitor how much data I've already used?
    • Can I rearrange books in iBooks? Can I bookmark multiple pages within a book? Can i highlight or annotate things in books? Will those highlights be saved?
    • Will Spotlight search work inside iBooks?
    • Do videos flip 180 degrees, or is it like the iPhone?
    • Keyboard dock - can i touch the screen while the iPad is in the dock? Does it fall over?

    Here's a couple of answers
    http://store.apple.com/go/product/ipad_case (one of the photos certainly appears to be)
    http://www.apple.com/ipad/3g/

    Are you referring to some sort of wireless service? If you sync with iTunes on a Mac you can go through the system address book.

    "With so much money, why were you wearing those horrible outdated jeans at the keynote? Would it kill you to get a personal shopper?"

    Not really a question but...

    come on... why couldn't you make the VGA output at least 1024x768 to match the screen?

    You don't - Windows doesn't have a system-wide contacts store like OS X does. So Apple had to pick and choose which contacts systems to support on Windows. Outlook is the only one that has enough market share to even be worth considering.

    When I was on Windows, I used Thunderbird for email and contacts, and then used a free extension to sync my contacts to google for inclusion on my iPhone. It worked, but there were always little incompatibilities that I was constantly working around. Having a system-wide contact store build into OS X is one of my favorites things about owning a mac.

    $ iPhone OS $

    Steve,

    Are you going to make loyal users pay for significant iPhone OS updates like they already have to for the iPod touch, when a lot of the features should be there already (think calc.app, notes.app, calendar.app, etc. not included with first iPod touch)?

    The VGA output does support 1024 x 768:

    I could be wrong, but my guess is that the dock to VGA adapter will let you project whatever is on the screen, regardless of the app.
