The iPad has finally gone from mythical dream device to an actual product. Join us for a roundtable video discussion where we'll weigh in on features we like and dislike, look at surprising functions or oversights, and see how the iPad compares to our expectations. Scheduled participants: Adam Flaherty, Mac Slocum, Damien Stolarz, and Adam Engst.
