    I think businesses can join the enterprise developer program and create/load their own iOS apps without going through Apple's Appstore.

    And businesses are going to love cloud computing --especially as they can create their own cloud: control what the employee accesses on their computer, and do away with local storage --which means that if the MoD or the NHS loses another 600 laptops, there is no compromising data on them. Just un-register the stolen device from cloud access, and it's worthless.

    Very true. 2000 iPads recently sold to a school and you can bet the kids won't be playing Angry Birds on them!

    and do you remember the last time Wallstreet went crazy over something technical...?! :duh:

    But for me Motorola Atrix sounds perfect with its laptop part running full FF 3.6 and parts of GNOME as long as its on Tesco mobile and has a steam chat app.

    The future of home computers is tablets? No. Most muggles are happy with a TV connected to a mouse and a keyboard.

    Read the article, it's not about hardware.

    I just paired my wireless keyboard with my iPad. I didn't know I could do that until I read T3 today.

    They also showed a stand that perfectly resembles the one used on the iMac. So in effect, the iPad turns into a mini iMac with external keyboard ...

    Awesome stuff.
