If the ZAGGmate has just increased your ability to populate corporate documents and spreadsheets a little quicker, perhaps the news of a full desktop version of Google Docs to load up with the iPad will make you grin.
Zagg's ZAGGmate is a Bluetooth keyboard case that sells for $99 and doubles as protective shell for your Apple iPad - essentially turning your Apple tablet into a 10" touchscreen netbook.

iOS 4 has not been here for long, and a software update offering news and magazines subscriptions aimed at iPad users may be on its way sooner than we think.
Foxconn, Apple's overseas manufacturing partner, has added new production plants in Chengdu, China. The newly set up plants are expected to produce nearly 10,000 iPads every day.

The iOS 4.2 release we were expecting to roll out today for the iPad has hit a wall. According to developers on Apple’s own discussion boards, there has been Wi-Fi connectivity issues where a 4.2 iPad would disconnect or not connect at all to the Internet after establishing a connection. No Internet on the iPad is a bad thing.
One thing that all of us do quite frequently (though some do it less frequently than others) is printing – documents, photos and what not!

Technology and innovations are fruitful if they serve the basic purpose – of being useful to humans. It further helps the machine’s USP if the human is disabled or impaired.
