Looks like they will be using the Macbook Pro/Air naming system from now on, no numbers...

Which most likely means they regret what they called the iPad 2, guess it will just be the anomaly.

What are we to make of the "touch" comment on the invitation? Yes, I understand that the display of the new iPad is beautiful, but what of the "touch" comment? What makes the new iPad more touch-worthy than iPads 1 and 2? I don't understand why they'd deliberately include that word. Perhaps I'm overlooking something.

I don't think they have the right video up yet... It's the video for the iPhone 4s.

You aren't overlooking, you're over thinking.

It's an iPad. You touch it. That's an important part of all iPads. It wasn't a foreshadowing of some amazing new different touch interaction, just a tagline for an iPad event.

Who would have thought we'd ever live in an era when you can use up your entire monthly data plan in fifteen minutes? What a magically awesome world we live in!

Store is STILL down!

Does anyone else think this is an extraordinarily long time for the apple store to be down (updating)? The announcement ended over an hour ago, and I have been trying ever since to get access to teh store to order one of these modern marvels. In fact the store has been down for about 4 or 5 hours at this point. Am I just too anxious? or is there a real problem?

Lol - I've been hammering the refresh button like a mofo :D Trying to order a new iPad and an Apple TV.

Now I REALLY miss Steve Jobs! This Cook fellow just comes off so awkward during this presentation.

lame keynote?

Well, I was no big fan of Steve Jobs' keynotes, but I did admire his showmanship. Great Keynotes, no doubt.

But... is it just my perception, or was today's presentation extremely LAME?

I mean, regardless of how excited (or not) one can be for the new iPad, the keynote performers' style, rhythm and general organization was, IMO, just boring.

Or is it that this ***** doesn't bring the same excitement anymore? I mean, the will be "new" iCrap every year, new iOS, new OS X.... all with relatively marginal improvements over its predecessors. Rarely something groundbreaking...

Any thoughts?
