    I'm a fanboy - without doubt, and I have an iPad pre-ordered, but I did find that very very funny.

    Satire is funniest when there is a germ of truth behind what is being said. In some cases they hit the mark, but in more they simply don't. For example, to joke that the interface is identical to iPhone is valid, and it is a little funny to hear them claim how revolutionary it is. On the other hand, battery life has far exceeded my expectations. It is astounding even with wifi and 3G enabled and brightness near max. So joking about this is, well, what is the joke? Doesn't really make sense. They could have aptly made a joke about wifi staying connected. That would have gotten a groan from me. Overall this plays more on preconceptions than reality. I give it a B- overall.
