In the five years I’ve been blogging, never has my Inbox overflowed more than the past 24 hours. Everyone and their brother wants to share news of their hot new application for Apple’s iPad, which arrives tomorrow. Here’s the thing — we get it, folks. There are already a few thousand iPad apps in the iTunes App Store. And they’re all better than iPhone counterparts thanks to the larger display and new user interface controls. Heck, some folks have already spent nearly $100 on iPad apps — and they don’t even have the iPad yet. (Yes, Leo Laporte, I’m looking at you!)

Far be it from me to not share in all this joy with our readers. You too should feel the experience and engage in the iPad software rush. To that end, here’s an iPad App Press Release Generator for you to play with while you wait for “the precious” to arrive tomorrow. Just insert your own words based on the type I’ve provided in brackets. Have it at and feel free to share your own personalized iPad press release in the comments while I go do some software shopping.

First, jot down a list of words that fit these categories — and no peeking below the list or you’ll spoil the fun:

  • [proper name, not necessarily yours --really!]
