    I think that just about anyone(even those living under a rock) have most likely realized that the next iPad will use video chat seeing how Apple made a huge deal about it with the iPhone 4 and now brining it to Mac with OSX Lion. I seriously doubt that Elton John would have some top secret information on the next iPad.

    He doesn't mention video chat... just the Skype iPad
    I doubt he has any inside info, just supposition

    The only new thing I've learnt from this interview is that Elton John uses Skype.

    This one is not so true, because if he did, he would at least call it FaceTime iPad or iPad 2, not Skype iPad. :D

    -> Someone who knows Elton John reads mac rumor sites.
    -> Comes up in conversation that the new iPad this year will have video chat.
    -> Like Skype?
    -> Yeah, like Skype.
    -> Elton John mentions something about a Skype iPad
    -> Rumor sites mentioned above use it as possible source of confirmation for the new iPad.


    :rolleyes:

    But he mentions that he will be able to "see him", so he's obviously talking about a camera.

    Just think of this as your old technophobe uncle talking about posting on "MyFace" or "SpaceBook" or listening to music on his NP3 player. Just because the guy is Elton John doesn't make him any less of an out of it old guy. He has no idea what he's talking about.

    ... yes. And the first App EJ will download onto his new iPad is Grinder. :rolleyes:

    But seriously folks can you imagine the conversations EJ might have with his son Zachary?

    EJ: Hello Zach. Do miss Daddies? Do You want Daddies to bring you a gift?
    Z: Yes you bald old fart. Get me a new diamond tiara and a sack of cocaine...

    He was on the R2 brekkie show last week and he told Chris Evans he did not have a computer & had no interest in them! Just goes to show how great the iPad is for technophobes - a "computer" for those people who otherwise would never use one. :D

    Well that's it. Case closed. Camera in iPad 2.

    I listen to the man who wrote Crocodile Rock.

    An admirable policy but a bit off topic since we are not discussing Bernie Taupin :D
