Apple iPads takeover CNBC’s Fast Money set (with stills)

MacDailyNews reader “Joe Architect” alerted us to flip on CNBC a few minutes ago and we noticed right away that Apple’s iPads have taken over the set on CNBC’s “Fast Money” set. They may have been there for some time, but we just noticed them today:

Nice to see that the Apple logos are all nicely oriented into proper position, too!

CNBC’s “Fast Money” website is here.

  1. @ Synthmeister – I believe you… ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” /> By the time there is reasonably competent “competition” for iPad, it will be too late.

  2. How’d they get the logos in the correct orientation? Aren’t they in the vertical? I thought they were…

    I don’t know for sure because I can’t make myself get an iPad. Honestly, I’m sure all you guys and gals have great reasons, but I think it’s too heavy, that the keyboard is way too hard to type with my thumbs and basically is no good replacement for even my iPhone.

    Maybe I’ll pull the trigger for v.2. If it’s lighter, with a better screen (quicker refresh so it doesn’t blur when I scroll even slowly), maybe.

    Then again, I think I’m perfectly happy with an iPhone 4 and MBP.

  3. But nobody will use an iPad. They’re practically useless without a USB port and no Flash support. So why are those iPads sitting in front of those talking heads?

    The one thing I see is four less Windows 7 licenses being sold.

  4. @mike, Apple has an office that will lend product for movies and tv, but everything I’ve ever read on the topic indicates that Apple does NOT ever pay for product placement.

  5. @Synthmeister

    That’s the only reason I haven’t bought an iPad! As usual, the v1 is missing a key feature that will be corrected on V2. I had to have the original iPhone, and hated that it ran on slow Edge. I’ll not make the same mistake twice. I’m waiting for the camera to be added, so I have a much more useful device.
