Of course an Apple Tablet would change the world :)

If Apple enters that market with the same flair that they did with the iPhone, they truly will shake things up alot.

With the iPhone, Apple is truly ushering in the long promised era of handheld computing.

With an Apple tablet type device, they will redefine that market as well.
