Being the spoiled techno-brats that we are, Shawn "Doc Rock" Boyd and I just had to go out last Friday and pick up new iPad Airs. Tweets we swapped over the weekend show that both of us are amazed with Apple's latest device, which not only boasts significant speed improvements and lighter weight, but also seems to have better battery life.
On today's TUAW TV Live, we'll be talking about the new tablets and how much we love them, as well as go through our list of what we considered to be the essential apps to load onto the new devices. Our App Editor Kelly Hodgkins worked up a list of the first five apps she installed on her new iPad Air, and it should be enlightening -- if not just downright fun -- to see what Doc and I installed on our skinny little iPads.
