    So.... Who got the iPad?

    I had to get up at five am but it was worth it to be fourth in a line. Like 200 people showed up before they opened. I got a 64 gig one and a 16 gig to resell. They had three mall cops at the door lol.

    I love love love this thing! My only two complaints are that there is No cover flow and the typing isn't as responsive as I thought it would be. A firmware update from apple can fix both of those issues though.

    What do you guys think? Anyone else get one?

    And yes I did type this on the iPad . Typing is faster when it's not in landscape.

    Noti

    Though I did want one at first when I heard it was coming out. Is it true you can't watch You Tube or webshows from sites like comedycentral.com on it? I know videos aren't everything but they're a large part of my internet experience.

    Can it attach to my desktop with a USB cord?

    Apple is really starting to outdo itself with these new doorstops!

    You can watch YouTube ! It comes with the app just like an iPod or iPhone. You can't watch comedy central yet but you can get netflix and Abc has their tv shows online you can watch. I don't know if any other tv networks have apps yet. Videos look awesome and load extremely fast on this thing. Waaay faster than the iPhone.

    I think Steve jobs will eventually get over not liking flash and let adobe support apple products so that you can watch any video anywhere.

    It comes with a cable. You HAVE to have a desktop/laptop to use it because you need iTunes, but everyone has one of those anyway.

    Wow, very keen on reselling. Good for you. I'm curious but given the price, my budget, and it's lack of features I was hoping for, I want to wait and see what reviewers say. I'm going to try and hold out and hope they get pressured into bringing a touchpad/convertible OS X laptop to market. Or better yet, some sort of MacBook Air meets Nintendo DS, with a haptic-feedback touchpad for a keyboard/trackpad. Drool...
    Glad to hear you're enjoying it.

    It looks very cool, but not sure that's what I would spend my money on. I think I'd get more function from a netbook for what I'd want to do.

    I watched a video somewhere on the web and they did a durability test. Dropping from your lap from a chair onto a carpeted floor, after the third time the screen was messed up....

    I'll wait to see how reviews are. However, I may very well consider an updated version of the iPad in a few years when it comes time to replace my aging Dell Laptop.

    I'm giving it a pass.
