Thanks to the new iPad, developers are more in love with the device than ever. If you’re a loyal SugarSync user, it’s time to fire up the App Store and download the company’s new 3.0 update, which is all about your favorite slate.
Monday has been good to iPad users who create their own content -- first Adobe releases Photoshop Touch for still images, and now Vimeo’s app hits version 2.0 with a universal build for native iPad support for watching, managing, downloading and sharing your videos with others.
It’s like a mystery right out of The Da Vinci Code: Where is Facebook’s iPad app? Despite the company’s continued denials, leaks insist that the company is developing one -- and as it turns out, it was right under our noses the whole time.

Steve Jobs wears one style of glasses. One. His iconic John Lennon-style shades are as much a part of his mystique as his Levis 501s and black mock turtle neck. Were Jobs to appear at an Keynote without any of these essentials on his person, the earth could very well spin of its orbital axis and hurtle into the sun.

If you follow Apple news even on a casual basis, you'll no doubt be familiar with the eloquent off-the-cuff zingers that Steve Jobs routinely levels at his company's competitors. Whether he's riffing on Flash or whittling down fingers, the Apple CEO always has an opinion.
