    Well kids, I promised an unveiling and here it is!

    This is the first post from my iPad!

    To start with, here's a couple of photos of the Apple store festivities just before they brought us in.







    Next up, we'll get to the unboxing!

    It's like Christmas all over again, and Santa listened.

    Actually Josh, I didn't have a reservation. When I got there, they split us into two lines. Those with a reservation and those without. Then, for those of us without reservations, they came along and asked what model iPad we wanted. Sorry to disappoint but they used a good, old fashioned piece of paper to do that. Turns out this was because the early inventory was very limited. While it obviously didn't happen to me, I'm fairly certain that there were people there who ended up disappointed.

    Tom (... moving right along now!)

    Ok. On to the actual unboxing. First is a picture of the bag that followed me home!



    Lo and behold, inside the bag is the actual iPad and the Incase sleeve I bought for it.



    Open the box and what to my wondering eyes should appear but a pristine iPad. Only thing it doesn't have is my name on it. Yet...





    This is the extensive documentation that it comes with. All two page of it (front and back)





    And, the power adapter (10 watt).



    Tom (... Cool, huh?)
