the new iOS update for the iPad

You might have discussed this in last night's show but I haven't had a chance to listen to it yet.
But I do want to rave about the new touch gestures for the iPad - the ones that everyone said that Apple was not going to include in this update.
In settings, I saw them and just turned the option on. Since they are tied to 4 or 5 fingers, there is no conflict with any app that I have.
The ability to bring up the multi-tasking bar or to go to the home screen by a simple gesture versus using the button is fantastic. Easier, intuitive, nice graphics when going to the home screen that follows the gesture, and very fast and smooth.
Just nice.
