Apple's New Toy: the iPad

Not since Moses came down from the mountain has the arrival of a tablet been so highly anticipated.  Steve Jobs unveiled Apple's iPad this week to mixed reviews.  With a price point to rival netbooks,  many wonder what it will do to shake up the personal computing scene.  Not to mention the threat is poses to e-readers.   Businesses are lining up to develop apps to feature their products on the iPad as it pushes the envelope of the digital frontier.   Another worry, what impact will it have on the already struggling print industry, since the device is likely to accelerate the shift away from traditional newspaper and magazine consumption in favor of digital content.
