First, G+ had everyone excited. I’m still excited about it in fact. Then a new hotness became available that everyone went super duper crazy for. Spotify. And, to be honest, I don’t get it.

iPhone 4 vs. iPad 2
It’s the time of year when everyone is extraordinarily excited about the latest Apple gadget that is about to be released. While the new iPad is **very** cool, it would seem that the new cover technology is what everyone is really excited about. Magnetic, puts the device to sleep **and** wakes it up. How cool is that?
Verizon Wireless has announced that they will be **selling** the iPad starting October 28th.
> Verizon Wireless will offer three bundles, all featuring an iPad Wi-Fi model and a Verizon MiFi 2200 Intelligent Mobile Hotspot, for a suggested retail price of $629.99 for iPad Wi-Fi 16GB + MiFi, $729.99 for iPad Wi-Fi 32GB + MiFi and $829.99 for iPad Wi-Fi 64GB + MiFi. Verizon Wireless is offering a monthly access plan to iPad customers of up to 1GB of data for just $20 a month. In addition, Verizon Wireless will also offer all three iPad Wi-Fi models on a stand-alone basis.
So, I had the chance to fondle an iPad this past weekend for a few minutes at the local Apple store. Sure, it was cool. Sure, it was pretty neat. Sure, it struck me as an iPod touch with a microphone and larger screen.
I wasn’t that impressed.
