A full MMORPG on the iPad, for free? You got it. It’s Pocket Legends by Spacetime Studios, LLC.
Just forgive the cartoonesque appearance of characters and make one. Then jump in and find others to play together. The rest is hack, slash, and dungeoneering.
Don’t look for the World of Warcraft-polish, though. Some location isn’t properly tuned for your difficulty level, for instance. But, the game really delivers and, heck, given what you pay you get an astounding performance/price ratio!
The app is optimized for iPhone too, and it looks like a miracle. …

ihome iPad dock alarm clock seems like overkill

Now I’ve got an iPad, and I really enjoy it. I can even imagine bringing it into bed to read a book or play a game on occasion. And while I’d love to have a place to charge my iPad by my bedside table, the idea of an alarm clock dock for the iPad seems a little silly.
