What's Your Preferred Position?

Regular readers know that I've been talking up the synergy between iPad type tablets and the normalized relational database.  And that such synergy must recognize the nature of input on a tablet.  Little bits of pickable data.  Hors d'oevres, so to speak; not a four course meal.

A few minutes ago Anand posted a quiz.  I guess the question has reached the mainstream pundit class, although it's not quite the right question.  The right question is:  what kinds of data can a keyboard-less device support, and therefore what kinds of applications are best suited to such devices?
