    It would be great if disney does some apps that can be downloaded and we can get fastpass on the day and do ADR while we at the park.... mmhh or even order foods and drinks!

    Ooohhh we could even download the ride photos!!!!!!!
    Ah but Jeff this is not just a site about Disney parks it's a site for Disney people who are a very special and rare breed of enlightened individuals

    yep all good points

    I keep going back and forth on it. The most likely places of use would be home (wifi), work (wifi), datacentre (wifi), hotel room (wifi).

    ...but part of me says ok you throw the ipad in the car, drive off somewhere and need to just browse around or get to a server. Then I think yeah but won't that be just so rare as not to justify the additional cost. ARHGHGHG

    The iMacs are just epic at the moment
    See.. my iMac is currently in Niamh's playroom (until I bother my butt to move the tort's hibernation fridge out of my room to make space again) so my macbook is really handy just for sitting on the couch or on my bed to do colllege work/browse the net etc.

    I've checked on mine and I can't find anyplace to specify which iTunes store to connect to. The Settings app on the iPad has an option to configure which account you're going to use to buy apps, music, etc. but I haven't found anywhere to specify which iTunes store you want to use. Perhaps it's location based but right now, I don't know. All this "may" have some impact on where you'd buy versus where you'd use.

    Just something to think about and be aware of.

    Funny you should mention that. We went to a restaurant next door to macdonalds in Hong Kong and I got onto their free wifi. I tried to buy a HK game (just to test) and it was only until I'd put my password into iTunes that it realised I was a UK person and defaulted back to my UK app store I'm assuming it'd be the same for the iTunes store...

    Yep. I'm sure that's the way it would work Josh. Figured that one out myself after I posted earlier and realized that I sounded like an idiot. Like I said, Homer strikes again!

    This is my biggest complaint, they SO should have made it able to use the iphone for a data connection! We've paid for the phone, we've paid for the data contract already, so it really grates not only to have to pay more the a 3g ipad but then have to pay for yet another data contract grrrrrrrr

    The more I think about it, the more I think wifi only :/

    Exactly where I'm at. Did anyone else get the April fools from IWOOT? Where you could plug an iPhone into a touch screen to turn it into a pad

    I'm excited about this. It feels like the future.

    Still .......

    ... And I know what the apple boys will say to this. It would be perfect with flash support.

    At the endof the day it's all about $$$$ my iMac and MacBook support flash it's all about the app store.
