    Grammys

    well watching the grammys and stephen colbert just took out an iPad when nominating song of the year. not very news worthy but the advertising Jobs is doing so far with it is pretty good.

    i just saw that and posted it myself. colbert is hilarious. i loved his joke about Adam Lambert haha... if this is how Jobs plans on doing advertising with this great product placement, than hes a genius. its a very smart idea. makes me wonder if other stars got one in their gift bags or if that was just a prop for colbert to use.

    I thought it was a fake one until I saw the keyboard go from portrait to landscape mode

    Just saw it, totally made my night!

    More epic than Gaga's performance? Maybe!

    He is Stephen Colbert, Master in Trolling Arts. He is the one person I look up to when trying to troll...

    Did y'all hear the audience's tone? You could hear the oohs and aahs mixed in with the laughter and applause. Pop culture's trend setters just wet themselves a little bit when Colbert whipped it out.

    What other tech company can do that?

    although I gotta say, I couldn't watch the damn thing on my iPhone.

    Most of the people on here that keep on trashing it will secretly buy one the day it is released.
