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

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.

Ha agreed, horrible guess. My guess is late tonight/tomorrow at the latest...

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.

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

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.
