Obviously DPI is one important aspect to reading text on an iPhone or iPad, but isn't contrast ration another important factor? I seem to remember reading some time ago that the main reason it is easier to read printed text is the high contrast ratio, not the size of the dots.
I'm betting that the iPad will be one of the most-wanted gifts come this Christmas. They are going to make a bundle on this product.
I see the Air in academic research circles a lot. Great for giving presentations and easy to transport between home and work.
I have no problem with the state getting out of the marriage business and leaving that to the various religious institutions. In other words, let the church keep the word marriage and let the state provide the legal contracts.However, the problem is that this very reasonable 'solution' seems to have few proponents and is not really on the table right now.

EndNote used to be great then it was bought out and went to the dark side in my opinion. I use Sente now. Others like Bookends. Problem is your still stuck with MS word or Mellel.
