    Part of me wants to watch it and part of me wants to say "Charlie Rose is too old to talk about the iPad."

    So like Natalie Imbruglia might say, "I am torn."

    I'd rather see Natalie talk about the iPad. And I'd rather watch Charlie talk to Bill Moyers and put me to sleep fast.

    And that was not a bad album by Natalie either by the way. :cool:

    It was interesting...

    I just wonder, how come Techcrunch can go over the 10 minutes limit on Youtube videos?

    Hey, don't say that. I'm probably older than Charlie Rose :).

    Well good for you if you are. Charlie Rose is 68 so if you have your mental faculties and are in relatively good health kudos to you!

    A man of the people. The right sort of people.
    It used to be the norm, but they had to change it to a 10 min limit to get around the licensing laws. You can still have your movie over 10 mins, but you have to ask them first. All they do is check that it's not a movie you're uploading afaik.

    Charlie Rose simply asks the questions. This video is well balanced and so far the best round table on the iPad i've seen. Mossburg and Arrington talk about the good and bad without some of the extreme bias you find on MR.

    (General thought about age) If age has anything to do with opinions... they would have to limit many of the MR people that clearly lack the common sense and maturity to deal with communicating on the internet. I'll take a 68 yr old over a 21 yr old rabid fanboi who thinks he knows everything any day of the week.

    Charlie's got all the gadgets, gets them first, and often talks about how he uses them in his work and life. Plus, he's interviewed all the top tech guys multiple times (except for Jobs, which I'd love to see).

    [Edit: Oops, Charlie Rose did interview Steve Jobs back in 1996, though primarily in regards to his role at Pixar.]

    The round table was interesting. For someone who has a problem with the iPhone, and Apple's closed OS, Michael Arrington likes the iPad.

    I think they touched on the key point in the discussion, the software. The software will make or break the device. People will look past the hardware and make the decision on what the software has to offer. The better apps, the more likely people will jump to the iPad.

    I wish MS offers a Word, Excel or Powerpoint app. But knowing Apple, they may say it's competing against their own office suites.

    I also think this was a well balanced discussion between people knowledgeable in Tech and business and come on Charlies not THAT old

    as for MS Office iWorks deals with that pretty well,

    It was fun to see Arrington squirm a bit. You KNOW he seethes about his lost CrunchPad, and that could it have been what the whole show was about. It's as if Apple read his blogs about it and simply made him one.

    Am I the only one who saw Flash working on the iPad when they were demoing it in the beginning?

    totally agree

    limiting it = devaluing it in my book

    Yeah but putting OS X (full version) on it. Is not the solution. It's been proven that model doesn't work.
