Yes, the iPad is a ginormous iPod Touch with a tweaked UI, but it’s still pretty cool. It’s surprisingly lightweight and the screen is just as responsive as the one on the iPhone and iPod Touch. What’s more impressive than the large 9.7-inch touch-screen is the speed with which Web pages get rendered and how well it’s able to scale …
The iPad is here. This is what we know so far. We’ll update as we learn more.

It’s an exciting day for Apple fans across the globe as we all wait with bated breath for Steve Jobs to take center stage at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco for the tablet reveal. It’s a shame that Terry McGraw spoiled all the fun on CNBC last night. Oh well. I’m still excited to see what all the fuss is about and I plan on …

Today in Techland: TABLET MANIA! Peter is still in San Fran, mentally preparing himself for the media battle at tomorrow’s unveil (and chatting with ngmoco’s Neil Young). But first, a compilation of tablet rumors, all in one tidy post. And make sure you check back tomorrow to see just what stacks up.
In other …
Way to take all the fun out of the Apple event, McGraw-Hill. Thanks. Really. Jump to the 2:50 minute mark.

Techland: What do the folks at ngmoco think Apple will announce?
Neil Young: I think …
Bravo, James Cameron. You’ve beaten … yourself.
I wonder how good it must feel to be operating the giant, blue alien arm responsible for raking in nearly $2 billion. Like you’re the, oh I don’t know, king of the world? (Couldn’t resist, sorry.)
