Apple published the iPad Air 2 - Reveal video to YouTube Thursday. The video was debuted during the company's "It's Been Too Long" media event earlier, and it plays on the original commercial for the iPad Air that showed the device being thinner than a pencil. In the new piece, which is only 32 seconds long, a laser slices off a good chunk of the pencil to make the point that the iPad Air 2 is even thinner.
