So I preordered the iPad through Verizon (big mistake) and after cancelling that debacle, raced a couple of hours up the road to the nearest city to buy one. And then decided to make a fun video of the unboxing (warning: there are some f-bombs and offensive language in the video...) http://youtu.be/cQprj39qitw I guess it's more that than a review, but I was definitely stoked to get the thing. I've only owned the iPad 1 in the past, and this is such an upgrade it's silly. The screen is finally amazing enough to read magazines on, and I've actually subscribed to a few (the original iPad was painfully close to being readable, but didn't quite make the mark). I'm especially enjoying buying the Kingdom Rush games again in HD too and restarting them (only mild sarcasm there, honest...). The wireless keyboard working so well along with a dearth of new apps designed for aspiring manuscript and screenplay writers means this just became a portable work machine as well. Honestly if I could just play roms on it I don't think I would need a traditional laptop anymore... maybe I'll have to explore the world of jailbreaking one day.
