Here to save us all

Posted By on Wed, Jan 27, 2010 at 1:38 PM

Today, Apple revealed the iPad, a tablet device that, well, I guess it would be easier to tell you what it doesn't do.  Mashable has a good run down of what the tablet can do and what it might mean for publishers, other platforms and everyday users.  What does it mean for the news business?  At this point your guess is as good as mine but certain content providers do have deals in the works to sell their content through Apple.  Lance Turner at AB has been following the news pretty closely.  And you thought the president's state of the union address would be the biggest news story of the day. Any thoughts on what kind of impact this newfangled contraption might have?
