Podcast Episode 74: iCar. Mark, Karl and Werner opine about “What if Apple made a car, the iCar?”, the upcoming iPad specs and name (iPad 3 v. iPad HD), plus discussions around iCloud, online profiles complied by Google and Facebook, Microsoft Office for iPad?, HP's lack of direction and much, much more in Episode 74: iCar.

My colleague has written a nice article about how the iPad 2 will probably show up in the $399 price range, yet the mystery beyond March 7th lingers. Apple is good at that. Fortunately, T-GAAP has some hints as to what Apple's roadmap is likely to follow.
