I'm not but will check it out in store.

Last vid shows a demo with different applications. The one for textbooks looks pretty interesting, it would be great to use and lug around instead of massive tomes. That coupled with the ability to go deeper on links embeded within the material might make them king there. Also it would seem to be a better ereader than a kindle and like devices. Plus you can read it at night. Though in daylight and direct sunlight the kindle would be favored.

Hahaha, oh man, I thought that by "picking up the Jesus tablet" you meant "taking communion".

I'm supposed to have one delivered today, although it isn't technically mine, I may check it out. Or not.

Makes me wish I never picked up a kindle.

I'm thinking about it (praying on it), but it would violate my sacred Christian vow to never purchase first generation gadgets.

I already sinned with the Droid phone, so I have the whole year to repent.

How can you trust anyone's answer after this (http://pourmecoffee.posterous.com/liars-28)?

LOL! So true.

While I haven't yet seen one in person, it appears to be another win for Apple's interface design team.

Rachel Maddow had a good segment (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26315908/vp/36155637%2336155637) previewing some of the software.

Says TBogg: "Well, something has arisen… (http://tbogg.firedoglake.com/2010/04/03/well-something-has-arisen/)"

Those sensitive to blasphemous humor should probably not click that link.

I checked it out. It looks great to me.

My son dismissed it saying that it's like an iphone, but larger and it can't make phone calls. Go figure.

I'm typing this on an iPad at the apple store. It's pretty nice. I'm not buying one though.

Shhh... don't offend her. Just tell her you'll come to pick her up soon.
