The Daily Slash: May 2nd, 2011

Welcome to the re-ramping! Spring is a notoriously slow time for technology, especially in releases of the gadgets we so very much love and adore, but by my watch, the truck is revving its engine and has started back out of the truck stop.

iPad 1 Price Drops at AT&T

iPad 1 Price Drops at AT&T

The iPad was already one of the most compelling tablets available.
