    OK, here's the target market for the iPad, what it will eventually amount to.

    Someone is sitting on their couch, eating Twinkies and drinking a bottle of Dr. Pepper, because they're a couch potato who is pushing maximum density. (That would be 98% of America, by the way).

    On the TV the end of episode 124 of "The A-Team" is reaching its conclusion.

    So . . . .

    Pick up the iPad. Call up the TV Guide App. Scroll thru the channels to see what's on. Press the show desired. The bluetooth of the iPad acts as a remote to the cablebox and the channel automatically switches on the TV.

    Also, an advertisement pops up on the pad.

    "You've just selected T.J.Hooker. Did you know that every episode of T.J.Hooker is available for purchase or rent at the iTunes TV Store?" and iTunes opens automatically.

    "People who bought T.J.Hooker also were interested in . . . "

    As T.J.Hooker is playing on the TV, boredom sets in . . . so . . . pick up the iPad and call up the latest issue of "People Magazine".

    While scrolling thru "People Magazine", a stop to read about Britney's latest faux-pas, causes a window to open.

    "Britney's latest single is available for purchase on iTunes!!!! Would you like to open iTunes?"

    Check "NO".

    "People" begins to bore. A quick scroll thru "US", and "National Enquirer" is followed by watching "The A-Team" wind down. It's time to go to McDonald's for a snack . . . but "Jersey Shore" is about to start.

    So . . . pick up the iPad and call up the DVR app. Choose Jersey Shore.

    "Would you like to record Jersey Shore?"


    A window opens up.

    "Did you know that all 5 seasons of Jersey Shore are available on iTunes for rent or purchase? Would you like to open iTunes?"


    "Did you know that people with your viewing and reading habits often buy Twinkies and Dr. Pepper? Would you like to open the iGrocery store?"

    etc etc etc.
