Web Pulse: iPad, Madonna manager dead, ESPN NY

You can view apps for the iPad ahead of the product's launch in iTunes.

Here’s a quick glance at the collective consciousness of the Web on Friday:

iPad apps - If you can't shake the anticipation of having the iPad in your hands until tomorrow, Apple has a little something to hold you over. Applications for Apple's iPad can be viewed in the iTunes App Store ahead of the highly anticipated release of the tablet-style computer Saturday. The batch offers a sneak peek of what's to come for the iPad and how users will be able to utilize the device, which Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveiled in January. And the move comes as Apple makes a visible push for the device - with product placement recently on the hilarious Modern Family and make an appearance as the subject of David Letterman's Top Ten list this week.

Caresse Henry – The buzz began on Twitter, started climbing up Google trends and was confirmed  by CNN shortly after - Madonna's former manager Caresse Henry has died. Henry worked with Madonna for 10 years before beginning work with Ricky Martin, Jessica Simpson, Joss Stone, Paula Abdul and Andrew Dice Clay.

ESPN New York - Like many other media organizations ESPN is looking to expand - in a local way. And last night they flipped the switch on a "New York State of Mind" for their latest local endeavor, ESPN New York. The massive sports company may just make themselves even bigger by going smaller, according to a GQ profile on the company. And New Yorkers appear to be thrilled at the site online, which may pose a strong threat to Newsday and the New York Post, which are the stronger sports papers in the town.
