  2. iPad Coming to Verizon Stores

    According to Gizmodo the iPad will be coming to Verizon Stores on October 28! Unfortunately, only the WiFi model will be available so 3G internet access on the go will require the additional purchase of a Verizon MiFi. So, this isn’t really new, but the business relationship between Apple
