iPad to get iOS 4 by November?

Appadvice picks up a signal from an iAds message from Apple:
“Apple is telling marketers that the device considered most promising for advertisers — the iPad — won’t be on the iAd platform until November. Since we know iAd is built right into iOS 4, this looks like a pretty compelling first hint at when it will finally be available on the iPad. As you might remember, the only thing Jobs has revealed so far about iOS 4 availability on the iPad was ” this fall”.”

Digital Gyro on the iPad?

InformationWeek reports that an empty slot on the iPad could actually be for the digital gyroscop, based on a teardown by UBM TechInsights.
TechInsight’s senior analyst Steve Bitton speculated that the iPad will likely get the gyroscope for a number of reasons. First, the presence of the slot (see images) leads to the obvious conclusion. Moreover, the accelerometer and gyro would likely work together, as well as with the application processor (the processor right above those other two components). Thus having all closely co-located makes sense.

iPad: In-Flight Entertainment Device

“Despite criticism of the iPad (the odd choice of name, lack of functionality, awkward size) anyone who has held one in their hands can attest to its all-around awesomeness. Whether it’s because it makes us feel like the future is now, or that we’re on the top of the technological food chain, there’s just something special about the iPad.
