Re: iPad to wifi or wifi & 3G?

I think the iPad is perfect for me and last week really underscores it, I went to Florida on vacation. I brought 4 books to read, my laptop to check e-mail and such and of course my iPhone. Well I did get to read my four books, but I never took my laptop out of the bag and checked my e-mail and surfed the web on the iPhone. The iPad could have taken the place of everything and I wouldn't needed to lug my Macbook Pro with me on vacation.

So I'm really looking forward to getting mine.
More science, less fear.

Of course I'm a creationist. I believe man created god.

Something that's suddenly made me a lot more inclined to buy one, quietly added to the specs page:

H.264 video up to 720p, 30 frames per second, Main Profile level 3.1 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; MPEG-4 video, up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) up to 35 Mbps, 1280 by 720 pixels, 30 frames per second, audio in ulaw, PCM stereo audio in .avi file format
AVI support ?
Good, that probably means iPhones and iPod Touches will support .avi files in the future and I won't have to keep converting them.
