iPad morning



...took these pics at 9 a.m. in suburbia, Washington. A buddy and I headed out to the Apple store, the line was around the block for *reserved* iPads. Many of these people had undoubtedly never seen or touched one, but were buying one. There was a separate line for unreserved. A handful of police on hand to keep the peace.

Amazing brand to compel surburban-ites out of their homes on an early weekend morning, in the 39 degree weather to wait for a product they have only heard about and seen videos about. What else has had that kind of reception? The Kindle was sold out for months online. I can only think of concerts and celebrity viewings as comparing. There is nothing like it in nerd world. What would you compare it to?

Tim and I turned around almost immediately, hopped in the car and drove to BestBuy (well, BB opened at 10, so on the way stopped at Trader Joe's, as my buddy recommended a 6-pack of Hofbrau Bock to each take home). No lines at BestBuy.

imo the iPad fits as a machine for the living room, while you're horsing around with family/friends, but don't want to sit there with a laptop ...for emails, looking up items during games, remote, tv guide, Facebooking, Twitter, EyeOnMajors... also for travel. eBook reader looks nice, but personally prefer the reflective/natural light Kindle. It's not as comfortable as a laptop for typing, for example, and I wouldn't want the iPad as a laptop replacement.

A very cool device. ...but such a carefully crafted, and remarkably well-received brand.

the iPAD does not allow you to make a playlist of videos. I only purchased the PAD to watch my large collection of music videos. Unlike my ipod touch the ipad plays one video then goes back to info screen instead of moving to the next video. Please develop something that can play videos in shuffle or any order back-to-back.

Thanks
