Watched Steve Jobs demo the iPad and it was so cool.
Go Steve!! You da man!!

Cool photo of the Amazing Motorola EnvoyDEAR STEVE: Did you ever see, sir, the Motorola Envoy wireless device? (photo to the left)

Do you know it could  send faxes too?  Can your iPad send a fax direct to a regular fax machine from anywhere?

I bet it won’t!

to wit:  we sent a fax from an Envoy while sitting on the Massachusetts state house steps, read our emails,  etc., but that was 20 years ago and  it worked wirelessly with little effort.

The Envoy is buried in vain now,  now this:

5 dashes from a digitalPlumber

– at less than $500 retail today, your  iPad seems like a winner! And, its got a black face plate cover.  Oh, wow!

– those schools who have stocked up on the Amazon Kindle should return them

– don’t know the facts yet, but if you gotta pay Apple big licensing fees to make software that will run on it, then its a PROBLEM.  If the iPad software licensing policy descriminates against FOSS programers then they should be pissed about this.

–  Apple should co-invest with  LTE wireless technology companies to insure this thing will run  everywhere there is oxygen and LTE cells on the planet.

– prediction: African entrepeneurs who live in areas on Africa’s continent where there is no governmental mission to administer and monetize waste disposables could enjoy the largest profits by producing and selling  cool iPad  covers and cases for the unit as they work with those abundant raw materials their communities dump into the trash bin.
