    Apple has filed patents for a possible external game controller, and headset, for the iPad. The game controller would either be plugged into to the iPad's dock connector, or would be a shell-like object that the iPad would slide into.

    Makes me think of Apple's own version of Xbox Live.

    Interesting.
    If only they allowed emulators on the App Store.

    I could see this being of bigger use than it would be without them.

    Reminds me of ThinkGeek's iCade April Fool's joke.
    Except iCade is just plain awesome. You'd HAVE to have an emulator for that.
