Facebook is finally getting around to releasing an iPad app, according to a recent New York Times report. Part of the reason it has taken more than a year to develop an iPad version of Facebook is Mark Zuckerberg's insistence that the iPad is not a mobile device but a computer. And he's right in one respect: Facebook is perfectly serviceable when accessed via the iPad's Safari browser.

The Nook Simple Touch is out, and while it's touted as Barnes & Noble's simpler, bare bones e-reader, we think it's nonsense to call any gadget "simple." Nook Touch (and Nook Color) owners should know that their devices can do a lot more than just read books from B&N--we're here to show you how.

Finally, Apple has given users a way to sync their purchased music, apps, and books wirelessly. With iCloud, whatever you download on one device--your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, or computer--can be set to automatically download on all other devices.
For example, when you purchase a song from iTunes using your computer, it'll immediately be downloaded onto your iPad also. Or, if you purchase a book on your iPhone, it'll be downloaded to your computer and your iPad as well.
More iCloud features, including calendar syncing and Photo Stream, will launch in the fall. Until then, you can use the iCloud beta for free to sync your music, apps, and books. Here's how:
Note: iCloud syncing is not yet available for Verizon subscribers.
