This is a post of mine from the library tech blog, MCLC TechTalk on My Thoughts on the New iPad. Short summary, it is a really neat device but it does little that is new or different from what iPads already do. I always felt the iPad was a great device but a poor computer. For many that is a moot point as they want a device for media consumption, web surfing and playing games. For me I just never cared for the need to tether it to iTunes.
