The iPad – Will it Change the World?
So I didn’t watch the keynote yet.  I’m not really a fanboy.  I do love my iPhone like most of you already know but I am not really that excited to get the new iPad.

It’s quite simple really, they are just running an install of Novell’s iFolder. A fine little product. In fact, I started [...]
