    Anyone know/predict when it will be lifted? Also predictions on what the big names will say? Verge, Mossberg, Engadget, etc

    My guess, either this weekend or monday. Mossberg has been silent he's probably in barbados or something playing some angry birds space on his new iPad3

    Heh heh, been wondering this too. I was expecting a glut of reviews today, but no dice. It'll be interesting to see if the reviews hit tomorrow or Friday.

    Heh, how could it be Monday? You get people to agree to embargos by giving early copies, any review site could review it on their own Friday for everything aside from battery life tests.

    iPad 1 and iPad 2 reviews came out at Wednesday 6PM Pacific.

    iPhone 4 and 4S reviews came out at Tuesday 6PM Pacific.

    I don't remember much before that.

    While I will certainly read through reviews, I will say that I don't see how there is much they can add though. Pretty straight forward upgrade.

    Some battery life/charge time tests are really all I don't already know. Maybe some reactions to non-retina apps on the retina screen.

    They're waiting for the checks to clear before they overrate it.

    Oh well. It's almost 23:00 here so I'll probably read it when I have woken up and arrived at work.

    I'm no expert, but shouldn't this be reversed? "You allow people early copies only if they agree to embargos." Otherwise, Apple wouldn't have to worry about embargos. Just don't give out early copies. :p

    Good find.

    For reference, they gave the original iPad a 8.3 and the iPad 2 a 8.8.

    EDIT: Oops, the iPad/iPad 2 scores are actually the average user review score. The Verge didn't exist back then.

    I checked for that too but those are just user reviews. I think it didn't exist a year ago.

    The one bonus to my girlfriend being in Japan until next month is my having to stay up later to talk to her means I will be awake to see all the juicy iPad reviews.

    I am expecting it to happen tomorrow night. But if it is tonight, you should only have another hour or so.
