Due to the recent release of iOS 4.2 my iPad was automatically updated by iTunes when I reconnected it to my MacBook Pro.

I thought it was really cool to have Multi-tasking and Folders to aid in management of all the apps on my iPad.

It was nice to finally have both iOS devices, iPad & iPhone, use the same user interface.

The biggest surprise was AirPrint.  This feature that allows you to print from your iOS device to a shared printer.

My printer wasn’t on the approved list, so initially I wasn’t able to find any printers, but after following the directions to re-enable AirPrint found here

Out of curiosity, I tried printing with my iPhone and was able to successfully print as well.

NOTE: Printing is only available on software that has been updated for iOS 4.
