Like Joe Hewitt
, I am optimistic about the potential for the iPad. And with my interest in iPhone development in .NET, I am looking forward to playing around with iPad-optimized applications later this year.
I just got an invitation to obtain a free iPad by becoming a fan of the Apple iPad Research Team on Facebook. Given that the iPad is not publicly available yet and the relentless manner in which scams are propogated, you might want to be wary of these types of offers.
Better yet, for some good laughs read Harry McCracken’s article: Oh No, the “Free iPad” Offers Are Here! (which is where the image on the right was sourced).
