    Oddly enough, I had already read that article. It was linked off the Apple web site on April 1st. I really did like the guys style of writing. And you're right, the last line of the article was especially good.

    And poignant!

    Stephen has just done the follow up to Douglas and Mark Carwadines 'last chance to see' he revisted the same places Mark and Douglas visited for the book

    Excellent series I hope you get to watch it sometime.

    Is the typing lag on the iPad still irritating you - noticed it does it on the phone as well as I am a reasonably quick typer

    Actually, no. I don't know if I've just become acclimated to it or what, but it doesn't seem to bother me as much as it did. Either I've trained the iPad or it's trained me. Either way, it doesn't seem to be much of an issue anymore.

    So.... 15days out and still nothing

    the more I read the more I want one - only flaw seems o be position of speaker but I have noticed thatmy and often covers the speaker on the iPhone.

    lots of people very very impressed with all it does and say it will replace their laptops

    they also like the screen lock which is a pain sometimes ofn the hone when it keeps reorientating itself

    is it possible it will be able to wirelessly connect to the priter I have?

    I'm sure I read that they were trying to build wireless printing into the OS4 so it may not work immediately but I suspect it will one day soon

    On the pricing, I heard from a friend at apple uk (such as it is) that the US are still very jittery about the exchange rate/election etc. and have been putting off deciding the pricing for as long as possible.

    I asked about pre-ordering and he said "who told you there would be preordering in the UK?"

    So no idea :/ I still think there will be preordering but perhaps only to ship not to pick up (I hope not, because ideally I want to preorder to pick up at the trafford centre!)

    Well I can't see the ex rate changing significantly in the next 2 weeks - lets hope they don't delay the release.

    yeah I did wonder if they'd try and eek it out until after the election but jobs said only yesterday that the international launch was still on track for "near month end"

    would i be better looking at a wireless keyboard or a docking keyboard? also can you use a mouse with it if you choose?

    Tom did you buy the case?
