    HFS> I almost ripped my iPhone charger out of the wall grabbing my iPhone and running to turn the TV on. Desperate much? Jeez.

    Did they show it yet? NBC is annoying for news. I have NBC on now.

    Flip your dial from NBC to ABC. It's coming on after this commercial break.

    Oh damn, you said ABC. I wouldn't actually watch NBC for news, I thought you said that for some reason. Did they show the review yet?

    Unless you're on the west coast. National news doesn't come on for 3 more hours here.

    And now it's over. More of a brief, quick handson than a review. Time to find something else to watch...

    Pretty lame preview....
    anyone recognize the Apple store they were secretly at?

    The best thing I saw were the Apple employees and the black suitcase holding the iPad like it was nuclear codes....

    If you notice-- apple didn't let the interviewer do much more than hold the iPad up in front of the camera-- all the demo was by Apple people.

    The piano app at the very end of the segment was very impressive to me. Wow.

    Lol that was no review, just a mini-demo. There was a segment of the review when they were showing the iPad in action, but it wasn't really running, fail.

    Didn't you know? That's what the football has been for years. But does it hold nuclear codes? Haha no. There's an app for that. iNuke - wireless control over the entire nuclear arsenal. Only Obama has access. Bush would have used it on everyone, but he wasn't even smart enough to figure out an iPad (haha joke - I'm actually fairly moderate and mostly dislike both sides).

    Not really a review even though they said it was. But from the little we saw I was impressed with the delicate quality. Are we sure it weighs 1.5 lbs.? It seemed even lighter. I can't wait.

    Yeah, not a review by any stretch of the imagination. It was pretty lame.
