Simple Tabs in AngularJS with AngularStrap

AngularStrap is a nice library for bringing Twitter Bootstrap into AngularJS. The idea is to make the Bootstrap features, like tabs, easy to use and control from Angular.

Along the way to my solution, I found this good SO post demonstrating loading the tab content from external HTML files.
