Can the iPad truly take you new places?

Unless you've been stuck under a rock for the past week, there's a new device on the market called the iPad. Some are calling it a "game-changer," some are calling it an unnecessary extra. What remains to be seen is whether it will become a useful tool for travelers — and one worth the $500 (starting) price tag.

In the effort of sussing that out, I'll be bringing one along with me this weekend on a trip to New Orleans, for the French Quarter Festival. I'll be mapping, eating, and, you know, dancing in the streets. Since these tech toys are only as good as the apps you download onto them, I'd like to know what you think I should test. Are there apps you're interested in hearing about? Challenges you want me to overcome? Questions you'd like answered?

Send 'em my way today and I'll report back next week.
