    Well Maybe this is kinda dumb and too late question... cuz I searched forums and found nothing regarding the first iPad demo where Steve projected his iPad screen on big demo screen?
    I mean, there was no airplay etc. how did he do that? If he did it then maybe it's possible to hack the first gen iPad to make it stream the video wirelessly to the ATV or something?

    This is my first post here so don't judge me too harshly if I'm dumb :D

    U mean they produced a special version of the first gen iPad for this? Umm not so sure.. I think it's only about the software thing.

    If you watch, he fidgets several times as if he's pushing something, it's likely a modified ipad to VGA adapter run along the chair into the stage.

    You see it for sure later when Forstall is playing games. falls right over his hand.

    Apple has had special versions/cables for a lot of its demos. They had live screen streaming to the projector for the first iPhone demo in 2007, and that device definitely couldn't do screen mirroring when it shipped.

    He even mentions in the iPhone introduction a special cable so he could project it.
