    NO manufacturer will be able to touch that battery life !!  Really impressive. 

    I would imagine Apple’s investment in P.A. Semi is going to pay off big ,  that battery life is a direct result of Apple being able to control the processor used in the unit and everyone else will be trying to use off-the-shelf components.

    Not sure what will happen to the stock short term but I’m pretty happy holding a long position .....  can’t wait till Christmas ...

    PC Magazine scores it 4.5 stars on a scale of 5.  See HERE.

    I’ve read many of the initial reviews, and they are uniformly positive This thing is going to do better than people imagine.

    Stephen Fry’s article in Time is just so bittersweet. Douglas Adams would be proud.

    The WSJ Mossberg article is LEAD on Section D and goes for a page and a half, imagine what BUYING that kind of cheering would cost ya?

    Looks like the Mag/Rags are setting up the hoopla better than anyone had expected.

    That is not strictly true, but giving up the iPad felt a little like that. I had been prepared for a smooth feel, for a bright screen and the “immersive” experience everyone had promised. I was not prepared, though, for how instant the relationship I formed with the device would be. I left Cupertino without an iPad, but I have since gotten my own, and it goes with me everywhere.

    It is possible that the public will not fall on the iPad, as I did, like lions on an antelope. Perhaps they will find the apps and the iBooks too expensive. Maybe they will wait for more fully featured later models. But for me, my iPad is like a gun lobbyist’s rifle: the only way you will take it from me is to prise it from my cold, dead hands. One melancholy thought occurs as my fingers glide and flow over the surface of this astonishing object: Douglas Adams is not alive to see the closest thing to his Hitchhiker’s Guide that humankind has yet devised.

    Fry is a writer, actor and broadcaster.

    That is precisely what I meant by bittersweet Tan.

    As a STARTREK fan, I would have more thought along the lines of the PAD they had back then. The Hitchikers Guide doesn’t seem as .... well, really REAL futuristic.

    yet ONE MORE innovation, brought to you from Gene Roddenberry long before they could actually make one.

    Stephen Fry’s piece for Time is a thing of beauty. Everyone should read it if they haven’t yet. It really put Apple in perspective.
