AppAdvice posted a quick video walk-through of the first beta of iOS 4.2 for iPad, which was released just a few hours ago. The primary feature shown off is multitasking. The iPad users will be able view 7 applications in the multitasking tray in landscape mode and 6 apps in portrait mode.
The other additions are:
- The external switch is acting as a mute switch again.
- Users can create folders (containing up to 20 apps).
- You can activate AirPlay from the photo app (to stream photos to the new Apple TV).

CNet shows the new iPod Nano 6th generation:
The good: The iPod Nano (sixth generation) is nearly half the size of the previous model, uses unique multitouch screen navigation, and includes a built-in clip.
The bad: Many features have disappeared, including video playback, camcorder, microphone, speaker, games, calendar, contacts, notes, and alarm clock. The touch-screen interface is overkill, requiring more attention than the time-tested click wheel design without delivering many practical benefits.
The bottom line: The sixth generation of the iPod Nano is the smallest yet, but it comes at the expense of valuable features and practical controls.

CNet shows the new iPod Touch 4th generation and compares it with other iPod Touches and iPhones.
The good: The fourth generation of Apple's iPod Touch offers nothing but improvements, including an HD camcorder, front-facing camera, integrated microphone, FaceTime video calling, Retina Display, gyroscope sensor, and a slimmer, lighter design.
The bad: Photo quality doesn't hold up to the iPhone 4's; there's no GPS, and no option for 3G data service.
The bottom line: The iPod Touch is the best iPod yet, offering all the fun of the iPhone experience without a carrier contract or monthly bill.

iTunes 10 appears to be lacking the ability to create ringtones from songs purchased from the iTunes Store. The feature had allowed users to select iTunes-purchased songs from their libraries, trim them down to desired ringtone lengths, and purchase the resulting custom ringtones for $0.99 each.
After looking around in the application, it seems that ringtone creation has been pulled from iTunes 10. We checked iTunes and were met with only information on how to sync ringtones from iTunes. A support document outlining the process for creating a custom ringtone in iTunes is still posted on Apple's site despite the fact that the feature no longer exists in the updated iTunes.
Custom ringtone creation was added to iTunes in September 2007.
