Keynote may be the least-essential app in the iWork suite -- after all, most of us don’t give presentations at sold-out convention centers -- but we have to admit it’s a perfect fit for the iPad. More than Numbers and even Pages, the iPad’s wide, Multi-Touch screen naturally lends itself to Keynote’s guides, gestures, and general interface.
But with such creative possibilities at your fingertips, Keynote’s built-in themes are surprisingly lacking. None of them are all that inspiring, and some are borderline insulting. White? Black? Really? Should those even count?
Of course, you could spend hours designing your own templates with subtle design flourishes, fonts, charts, shadows, and textures. Or you could let Templates for Keynote Pro do it for you.

Can’t get enough of Cut the Rope and that loveable little monster Om Nom? Developer ZeptoLab has just released the latest chapter in the saga to the App Store, available in both an HD version for the iPad as well as a small-screen edition for the iPhone/iPod touch.
In an open letter to the world today, Google Senior Vice President and Chief Legal Officer David Drummond decided to take a few moments and explain to all of us "what's happening" with regard to Apple, Microsoft, Android, how patents work, a free market economy, and the future of smartphones.
Drummond went to the mat early and often, reiterating the claim that 550,000 Android devices are activated every day, but then stating that this success has spawned "a hostile, organized campaign against Android by Microsoft, Oracle, Apple and other companies, waged through bogus patents."
