Is there ever a reason to actually register one of these products with your real name and info? Unless it's my bank, DL, or passport, I see no point in giving any of these companies real info.

I agree. I was a long time user of UltraEdit and later UEStudio. I liked their products and purchased lifetime upgrades for both home use and work. When I purchased, they gave me a serial number that they seemed to change a lot. This was presumably a futile effort to shake the pirates. Nonetheless, I could put it on all my machines and I was happy. Then they hired some guy who was going to turn them into a real software company and he put limits on how many activations you could have per license. I think that number is two activations. I just decided their editor wasn't worth the effort and went to an open source alternative. Here is a specific case where their desire to prevent piracy (which it didn't - you can easily find cracked copies) cost them a paying customer. You rock IDM - not.
As to the original question, I think a serial number is fine. Much more than that and you risk pissing off your paying customers.

They will never make something with a form factor that can be mistaken for an iPad.
Now that the form factor of a rectangle is taken, they could always make a tablet in the shape of an "L".
