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.

How about will there be a webcam you can connect to the device?? I think that is a pretty important question

  • 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

  • How do I sync contacts between my iPhone and iPad without Outlook, without syncing to Google, and without MobileMe (ie: without any go-between).
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.

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.

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:

what apps will support video out of some sort so i can hook a projector up (the quest of the week).
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.
