You cannot have a multiuser iPad, but can definitely have a multiuser browser inside it.
Its name is Switch. Its multiuser capabilities are thought with security in mind, for the user and for the other users too!
There’s a guest account for extra privacy and the occasional friend that asks to have a look at the Internet.
Recurring users can use the same Switch and have each one their logins and passwords for every account on every site they visit, without other user being able to tamper with that (they are supposed to …

It’s our pleasure to make a little publicity for Logic Consulting’s BaDaBing 1.0, a touch drum kit for the iPad.
BaDaBing includes more more crashes and toms than any other similar app and the response time from touch to sound is unsurpassed. The animations of the drum kit provide the user instant visual feedback in addition to sound. The drum surfaces depress and the crashes rock back and forth giving the user a complete experience.
Even with such a bonanza, the app is free, with some ad inside, or US$ 0.99, …
Did you read all that bullshit about the iPad being a consumption device, neither good for work nor content production?
Well, Damon Albarn told NME to have recorded his new Gorillaz album on an iPad.
I’ve made it on an iPad – I hope I’ll be making the first record on an iPad, Damon said. I fell in love with my iPad as soon as I got it, so I’ve made a completely different kind of record.
Now it’s clear that whatever you read in the past about iPad not being able to …

This is the email we sent to the publisher’s Contact Us address:
I bought Editor for iPad and I’m really, deeply unsatisfied of the result.
The app is excessively slow in accepting text input and characters appear on screen with an unacceptable delay on the actual typing having place.
The text cursor goes wildly offset and doesn’t match the actual writing position on screen, so that – to place the cursor in line X – I must tap the screen two or three lines down.
The app requires every file to be manually …
Bob Evans for InformationWeek:
Out here at the InformationWeek 500 Conference, I was talking last night with a few CIOs about the iPad and what it is that makes it so special: why lots of big companies in various industries are turning to Apple’s latest bit of wizardry.
And as I listened to the wisdom of our audience, I think the answer finally penetrated even my thick skull: the iPad allows individuals and companies to do what they could not do before. […]
The iPad engages its users to move beyond mere productivity—applying …

We feel it’s our duty to inform about the Crux360 clamshell-keyboard Bluetooth case for the iPad.
The case sports four modes: Laptop Mode, that turns the iPad in a sort of netbook; Movie Mode turns the screen to face the opposite way to the keyboard to watch movies; Tablet Mode flips the screen to lie flat against the back of the keyboard, and Carry Mode, where the screen stays protected inside the case.
The Crux360 feels solid and well engineered. Anyway, we would never consider a device that wants to put a …
