I have been looking at iPad apps for usability issues for the past few weeks. Here is a quick list of the good, the bad, and the ugly.
The good: IMDB, Scifi Wire, Adobe Touch
The bad: The buggy WordPress app
The Ugly: AP News
About the iPad itself, very slick, very cool/fun to use. On the down side, no SD slot, no USB, and Apple’s “walled garden.”

The Martin “Jetpack” actually uses two ducted fans powered by a gasoline engine.
On the plus side, a 30 minute flight time with a max speed of 97 kph (60 mph). That gives it a one way range of about 30 miles (48 kilometers). That is a lot better than the 30 second average flight time of an actual jet pack.
