"This is a day I've been looking forward to for two and a half years," says Steve Jobs, introducing the iPhone and beginning a journey which helped define the future of smartphones.

"Some of us use laptops and smartphones, today we're introducing a device that sits in the middle," says Steve Jobs, introducing the iPad in 2010.

Consider the direction of Apple's movement across the last 35-years, and also consider the impact of iTunes, iCal, iTunes and iPod for Windows, and the lessons learned from the G4 Cube.

Do drop by later on when I'll be writing about the iPad 2.0, after taking a look at it at today's launch event. Oh, and I'll be Tweeting a little during the show. Meanwhile, what would you like iPad 2.0 to do? Please let me know in comments below, and I'd be most pleased if you chose to follow me on Twitter so I could let you know as new reports get published here first on Computerworld.
