  1. Isn’t that cell phone company Nokia in the Netherlands? They tried blocking the iPhone from their home turf. The iPad just walked in. Oh look, the iPhone is right behind it!

  2. No. breeze, I see it as a Tsunami. The shore line pulls back (netbooks stop selling) then the ocean towers over the shore as it rushes in at 600 miles per hour overtaking everything that is there!

  3. Typing this on my new iPad – it arrived on the 27th in West London at 13:00 GMT. Your iPad App looks great on it ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” /> What a great gadget!!

  4. Stuck with a “shipping in June”. Oh well, it’ll help build my patience ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />
    Congrats to the new owners!

  5. Baby Jebus has just arrived, has been placed in its cradle and is syncing to the ‘One’ – my MBP. Meanwhile, in between bouts of throwing chairs and eating greasy burgers, Uncle Fester holds his big rounding head of an error in his hands and cries tears of an empty and morally bankrupt soul.
