Show Notes

In the first part of the video I show off a few of Apple’s iPad accessories. They include the $39 Apple iPad Case, the included 10W Power Adapter, the $69 iPad Keyboard Dock, and the $29 iPad Dock Connector.

During my tour of the iPad I take a look at a variety of applications. They include Mail, Safari, Calendar, Contacts, iTunes, Reuters News Pro for iPad, New York Times Editors Choice, Marvel Comics, Keynote, Pages, Numbers, Epicurious Recipes & Shopping List, and Labyrinth 2 HD. Mail, Safari, Calendar, Contacts, and iTunes are included with the iPad. The others are all designed specifically for the iPad and are available now from the App Store.
