I'd love to see a solution where I right-click on any url on my laptop (in email, AIM, a document, etc.) and a menu pops up with an option to "Save page on iPad". So I want a desktop applet that talks to my iPad, telling it to go out to the web, pull down that page and save it so I can read it, even if I'm offline later. If my laptop and iPad aren't linked up my laptop should queue up all these link requests and transfer them as soon as they can reconnect. One of the keys here is that I need all these pages to be available offline (like the Instapaper model...in fact, this would be a nice feature for Instapaper to think about), so that I can read them on a plane, for example.
I'm not sure of the best way to enable this laptop-to-iPad communication, but it shouldn't be hard to pull off, right? Is this an app you'd use?
