    Dangerous move.

    While waiting in line at the SXSW pop-up Apple Store, an employee was walking up the line with a show model to let people handle before going in (it was Saturday after launch day) and the person in front of me in line held it up in a similar manner, which somehow resulted in the ipad detaching and crashing to the sidewalk where it tumbled another few feet before stopping. It came out of it with nary a scratch, fortunately. (I really have no idea how, it looked and sounded like a really bad fall)

    Omg I am dying!! Lol!! Too funny! On a side note, gizmodo is reporting that a wifi ipad2 tethered to an iPhone uses the iPhones a-gps chip. That's great news for those who have iPhones and don't want to shell out $130 for the 3G version

    Scary! But you know, someone could sell a magnet bar that stays on the fridge and holds the iPad’s bottom edge, and then it MIGHT be pretty secure. Maybe.

    It's obvious this is like the movies. The padded cushion is on the floor. ;)

    Agreed. That will not have a happy ending.

    Someone needs to get in here with GarageBand on their iPad 2 so that we can get a "Ba-dum Chaaaaaaaaaaa" after each of the jokes.

    It's like open mic night in here. :D

    Generally, I like to keep magnets FAR AWAY from my electronic devices, especially those with a screen.

    Of course, ipad 2 has been designed to be used with special magnets in specific places. But I'd be concerned to keep all other magnets away from the ipad.
