Can we ask that Apple consider putting a USB connection on the next version of iPad for those who want to use an external hard drive for storing images? When traveling some of us have too many images for the iPad storage and want to archive the RAW versions as well as see what we shot. This USB addition would be perfect for using for this and other applications. It would make the iPad perfect. macbook pro Mac OS X (10.6.4)...|big-version-ipad-usb-external-hard-drive-connection

Also, when I tap the screen, no video interface comes up. ...|mp4-video-play-itunes-syncs-ipad-play

I noticed based on the specs, if USB 2 was available and so was 10.5, an iPad could be connected. This suggests that at least for 867 Mhz and faster G4s, an iPad is a possibility, if a USB 2 card is added, and only USB 1 was on the logicboard. Has anyone tried this and found ones that work? Either PCMCIA or PCI cards Id be interested in, since Im authoring a user tip on which cards would be needed for older Macs to connect the iPad.
