1. Like it? Hate it? The iPad, which drew a ton of rumors and speculation, is ready to make its debut. The first commercial aired during the Academy Awards (which explains why Steve Jobs was on the red carpet) and is officially going mainstream. The iPad will be on sale April 3, 2010, and pre-orders begin March 12, 2010.

Here’s the commercial in case you missed it:

 

2. Better than the iPhone?! The Google Nexus One phone had a lot of buzz when it first came out. Critics are still wondering if it can compete with the iPhone and other touchpad-type smartphones. Google has never made it a secret that it plans to release the phone to multiple carriers — WHEN is the question. This phone is rumored to be coming to Verizon on March 23, 2010.

3. Wonder if I could sneak into this? f8, the Facebook Developer Conference, is slated for April 21-22, 2010, in San Francisco.

According to the Facebook blog: "f8 has always been about empowering a community of developers to hack, to build and to delight users. We’re looking forward to continuing this tradition at our third f8."
