Since all boardgames will be moving to the iPad, it would be great (and, I imagine, relatively easy) to expose (and evangelize) an API that iPad game developers could use to automatically record game plays from within game apps (and perhaps also access a game's entry in the database, etc.).

In addition to being convenient for players, it would get BGG's foot in the door as a platform for networking gamers playing electronic versions of boardgames. (Another way of looking at this is that if BGG doesn't do this, someone else will, which will seriously undermine BGG's role as the nexus of boardgaming, as it becomes increasingly electronic).

I'm just not feeling this need, some 12 days or so after this gizmo hit the market.

Wait until it's a "need" and it's way too late.
