Imagine that you have a Gazillion dollars and the very best techie brains at your beck and call ..... what would be the one thing that you would make the next generation of iPad capable of?
Here's my choice ......
Make it so that with my iPad connected to my computer, either with a cable or by wi-fi, I could just drag and drop things like e-books, movies, images, music etc from my computer's desktop to folders on the iPad. And then, when I had finished with them, just drag them back to my computer's trash.

The trouble with letting people like me loose on the interweb with a debit card is that I now have the latest Mac Mini Aluminium running at 2.4 GHz with 8 GB of DDR3 RAM, 320 HDD and OS X 10.6.5 all wired up to a 70" LED screen ...... And not the faintest idea of how to use it.

Isn't this what the sync'ing is doing right now and has been all along? With iOS 5, the sync can happen ove WiFi or through the cable. You select the device, chose the e-books, movies, images and music you want to sync. Press sync to make it happen, enjoy the content on your iPad and when done, go into iTunes and uncheck the things you don't want anymore and hit Sync again to get rid of it.

You might want to consider an Android powered tablet with Jelly Bean. Problem solved. No need for a gazillion dollars, either. Heck, if the new Kindle HD can do it, I'd probably go for that one. Looks like a nice machine.

If there is anything I could change about the iPad I would make it more durable and make it feel better to hold in your hand. I love my iPad for most things but there is still a lot of things out would rather pullout my iPhone or MacBook instead.

Make it a little lighter. That's about it really (I think it's an AMAZING device).
