  • Twittering while the session is live has been spotty during my tests. The tweets are listed in the notes on each slide and all together below in case my experiment fails:

    * I’m giving an Ignite-style talk this very moment about web opportunities for the iPad at SXSW. http://bit.ly/c1pscW Slides http://bit.ly/b7tqvP
    * I’m going to tweet background info during the presentation. For info on how I’m doing it, see http://bit.ly/bP72H8
    * So what if there are no new browser bells and whistles for the iPad browser, at least we won’t spend years asking for png support. ;-)
    * iPad specs 9.7 screen. 1024 by 768 pixel resolution at 132 pixels per inch. Web sites designed for 1024 should look fine at both orientations.
    * Changewave says people most interested in buying the low end WiFi and high-end machines. http://bit.ly/9mBLnG
    * My theory: form factor means more Wi-Fi usage than the iPhone. ATT CEO says iPad Wi-Fi driven http://bit.ly/a1FnTv
    * Camera, Compass, GPS are less important on iPad than iPhone because iPhone is always with you and well, there is no camera.
    * More on hybrid apps check out PhoneGap http://bit.ly/caE1OL, Titanium http://bit.ly/ac5JSJ, RhoMobile http://bit.ly/c90uJ9, and book http://bit.ly/b1fz2F
    * The big change from iPhone to iPad isn’t size. It is the promise of content creation instead of merely media consumption.
    * Ok, so it isn’t an iPad dashboard, but it is amazing, cool and built with webkit http://bit.ly/bMkxfQ
    * Highly-recommend article from Craig Mod on Books in the Age of the iPad http://bit.ly/d7Ee9H
    * Will more people read vs scan on the iPad? If someone is reading, does vertical scrolling provide the best reading exp?
    * Device detection http://bit.ly/bkwBFv YSlow http://bit.ly/aQGYkG HTML5 Forms http://bit.ly/95UCgR http://bit.ly/56zmKK
    * Is it safe to assume that if someone can write a word doc on an iPad that they can complete a shopping cart purchase? If so, why pay Apple 30%?
    * Thanks for listening. Slides and tweets (in case not all of them made it) are at http://bit.ly/b7tqvP Would love to chat after the session.
