    More apps like the iElectribe by Korg. This think is just begging for something like a kaosolator also a virtual monome.

    Also Boxee for the ipad :D

    I want a true, handwritten note taking app that can work without a lag (as has appeared in all I have tried so far) and does do the smoothing.

    I have probably tried 6-8 and all have a significant lag which is not present on the iPhone, as if it comes from the large input surface of the iPad and the processing overhead imposed.

    iWeb could truly be killer. Same with some of the other iLife apps. But I could see iweb working on the ipad. However, I wouldn't expect it for about 6 months or more.

    I second, third, and fourth that! The large iPad screen would be ideal for SimCity.

    I also would like to see,

    -GarageBand

    -Vintage Game Emulators(like NES, Super Nintendo, MAME,etc...)

    -Hulu

    -Comcast(so you could watch all your on demand programs if your a Comcast subscriber)

    -iDisk(You'd think Apple would have already made an iPad specific version)

    Those old Sierra games would be really great. I wonder if i could remember them well enough after all these years.

    Yeah I'm surprised there haven't been any Risk-style games made for the iPad, since it wouldn't be too hard to write and would fit well on the screen.

    Something that will let me print directly from my iPad, and something else to let me mark up Word docs, so I can leave my MBP home.

    An app for it to become an interface for iPhoto, Garageband, iMovie with costumized GUIs for each app.

    (eg mixing desk for Garageband)

    Then we'll be getting to a place where I want to be :D
