Kudos Tom! great meeting of ideas, need, and technology! i think you  
will have a hit on your hands here! Also wonderful to see when an app  
does something that really makes a big human difference. i hope your  
app is featured over an ipad face book interface widgit (yeah that  
improves society, snicker).

i see the ipad popping up in all sorts of places that were not thought  
of at the casual glance. knowing jobs he has had folks dreaming up all  
sorts of interesting markets for it and is ready to push them in there  
if someone like tom does not come along and do what he did!

i usually dont grab technology when it hits the gates (never quite  
enough money for the bleeding edge and go for the better bang for the  
buck at the first rev), but the ipad is calling me, calling me... i  
must admit i love my itouch way more than i thought i would (and i  
thought i would love it) so i figure the ipad will be well worth it!

besides we can finally walk around like Picard, how cool is that. we  
just cant toss the data pad on the table yet!

i wish rev mobile was w/in my play budgets, but no work in that  
direction currently so it will have to wait, but i am thinking of how  
it can enter exhibit presentation!
