The WSJ does it again. Special coverage from Yukari Iwatani Kane and Ethan Smith about the supposed upcoming tablet from Apple. Since the WSJ is behind a pay wall (and it’s a really long piece) the essence of the story can be found in this post from Business Insider.
Some highlights:

Apple wants to ”reshape businesses like textbooks, newspapers and television much the way his iPod revamped the music industry—and expand Apple’s influence and revenue as a content middleman.”
Apple wants to launch a web-based version of iTunes by June.  This would allow people to use the store without special iTunes software.  The service would also have distributed “Buy” buttons all over the web.

Tablet is designed to be shared.  May come with facial recognition camera.  Users may be able to leave virtual sticky notes for other users

Excited about the next installment of Iron Man on the big screen? Here’s a pic

Is it me or does Robert Downey Jr. look like he’s about to burst if he can’t get to the bathroom in time?
Oh and the super tanned Mickey Rourke, he looks a bit like he’s black, almost a parody of Downey Jr. in Tropic Thunder, doesn’t he? :D
ScarJo unfortunately looks plastic on this cover though she looks hot in the action photos.
