If Colbert Has One... I Want One...

Do you think I am cool?

If you are Stephen Colbert, you are at the Grammy Awards and you have an Apple Ipad, do you even have to ask if your cool?

During the song of the year award at last night’s Grammy Awards, Steve Colbert flashed an Apple iPad and asked Jay-Z: “Did you not get one in your gift bag?

iPad or no iPad, Colbert's daughter assured him an iPad still didn't make him look cool.

Why I want my iPAD

After all the speculation and rumours, I want my iPad. Goodbye netbook... Hello iPad.

From yesterdays list of 10 must have features... well, need I say more.


It's a half-inch thick and weighs just 1.5 pounds, with a 9.7-inch capacitive multi-touchscreen.

A 10-hour battery life and a month of standby.

16, 32, or 64GB sizes, with a 30-pin Dock connector, a speaker, a microphone, Bluetooth, 802.11n WiFi and optional 3G, as well as an accelerometer and a compass.

Every iPad is unlocked and comes with a GSM "micro-SIM," so you can use it abroad.

It starts at $499 for 16GB, 32GB for $599, and $699 64GB.

The WiFi-only model will ship in 60 days, and the 3G models will come in 90.

10 Things I Want From My Apple Tablet.

Speculation is coming to an end tomorrow... so these are the ten things I want from my Apple Tablet, ISlate or Ipad, besides being addictive, fun to use, with you at all times and be the gadget to be seen with.

1 Multitouch 10" Screen
What would my tablet be without multitouch? Apple delivers an intuitive and responsive multitouch touch experience to my iPhone and the iPod touch. I want multitouch capability from my tablet.

2 Virtual Keyboard
No troubles with my iPhone's virtual keyboard, it makes sense for my Apple tablet. With a full multitouch display, it makes sense to have a virtual keyboard.

3 Full Remote Connectivity
WIFI with N draft, 3G, 4G or HSPA... wireless connectivity is an absolute must for my Apple Tablet to connect from anywhere.

4 BlueTooth Integration
Put on my stereo Bluetooth earbuds and watch my favorite movie on the tablet — anytime, anyplace without wires!

5 Awesome Battery
Dreaming of a 5 day battery life between charges. But, really, willing to settle for 8 hours.

6 Apple App Store
Like it does with the iPhone, Apple App Store needs to be a key application in its tablet... more apps woout!

7 Mail
Mail is a must-have by design, need to access e-mail on my Apple Tablet.

8 USB Ports
My Apple Tablet needs a USB port for expandability. As required.

9 SD Card Slot
Again, SD card slot for expandability and storage.

10 Price
Must be priced Under $600.00
