I just came to the Apple store to check out the iPad once again. I really don’t care for this keyboard, but I could put up with it . . . and I’m going to use a Bluetooth keyboard anyway. Maybe I’ll develop a new, two-fingered typing method.
Now I have proven I can author here from the device, though I had to do it in html, not visual, mode.
Regardless, this is one special device. I’m going to get one even if I end up having to get a laptop anyway.
