The Apple (AAPL) iPad is a wonderful device for surfing the Web, watching movies, even getting work done.

Star Walk lets anyone with an iPad do amateur stargazing without the use of a telescope as you point your iPad at the night sky and details about what you’re looking at are overlaid on the screen.
