Apple's latest product, the iPad, has been revealed. The iPad is marketed primarily as a web browser and a media & ebook viewer. It looks like a giant iPhone (magazine size) and weighs roughly 1.5 pounds. Sweet!

David Coursey has a great article on PCWorld listing 6 pros and cons to the iPad. Dena Cassella has an interesting piece on Digital Trends about the new device too.

Meet the K Workstation by MisoSoup; an innovative and space-saving desk design. This desk is perfect for small apartments, dorms or any other trend-setter's room where space is at a premium.

Got More room? The MILK desk by Scandinavian designer Holmris Hansen A/S is an Apple user's dream. This desk has 4 customizable sections on the left hand side that can be used for anything from storage compartments to trash bins and pencil holders to a fish tank. This sleek design neatly stores cables out of sight and is height adjustable.

Once I found out about height adjustable desks I was sold on the idea of getting one for my workspace. About 6 months ago I purchased Geek Desk legs from Bonanzle and bought a desktop from IKEA. Having a desk that adjusts electronically in seconds from seated to standing height is irreplaceable for those long days at the computer. I'll never work in a cubicle again.

(FYI: The picture above is not my space- I'm not a dude....)
