Dr. Sanduk Ruit for CNN HEROES 2011

There is an annual television show CNN HEROES created by CNN to honor individuals who make extraordinary contributions to help others. Dr. Sanduk Ruit, a Nepalese eye surgeon has been nominated for CNN Heroes 2011.

Officially kills the iPad version 1(I've to reiterate) and the price would plummet unbelievably. There will be more competition, be ready for price war One thing will remain same, iPad 2 won't have FLASH support no matter in which self it manifest itself. Not so long ago, Apple chief has already declared that there is no future for Flash. So, don't expect to see FLASH. As thought, it will definitely be thinner and slimmer than the old version. That could mean, iPad 2 will be more focused towards cloud computing. That means, more restrictions to end users. New iPad 2 owners will find that they've no cont
