iPad Ad From Apple

technologyI actually resisted the iPod for years. I preferred my iRiver because it actually had a built in FM receiver. Sometimes I want to listen to MP3s, other times I want to listen to the radio.

I eventually bought a Shuffle for running and a couple of years ago I got a Touch for my birthday. The Touch won me over. I love the interface, the apps, the browser - and it even plays MP3s!

Today, unless you're living under a rock, you've heard that Apple has unveiled their new iPad. It's more than just a bigger Touch, but it's not for me. When I need a pocket device I have my Touch and when I need something bigger I have my trusty laptop. I don't feel compelled to drop $1000 hundreds of dollars on an iPad.

Here, hot off the press, is the new ad from Apple for the iPad. This is a Toronto Mike exclusive.

And here's the iPad itself. This is not a Toronto Mike exclusive.

I'll wait for version 2.0. Give me a webcam and I might be interested!

This is new? I thought I heard Phil Kessel talking about watching hackey highlights on his iPad a couple months ago.

"built in FM transmitter"... don't you mean "built in FM receiver"?

Oops......missed the first window with the Mad clip. For some reason it was not showing up, just in X in a box. I post the link and poof, there it is!

The i-pad is really cool. I have already spoken to my spouse about my next birthday present. I commute a great deal (mostly plane and train) and so this will be a fantastic machine for catching up on reading along with e-mail and yes, even those videos from last year which i wanted to watch.

The thing that suprised me the most about my ipad is the solid feeling of it, feels much like the mac book pro. very good design.
