    And did you see the iPad 2 cover video? It's up on the Apple site now.

    Kinda looks like something Pixar might have done!

    Tom :)macwave:... now back to our regularly scheduled programming.)

    Not impressed with the white one, looks far too ugly. Everything else I'm mega impressed with. Especially the price of Garage Band, even though it's not something I'd use myself.

    Yeah. I kinda think so too. Just waiting to see if the instrument interface will work with my iPad. My guitar wants to talk to Garage Band!

    Tom :)macwave:... hmmm....)

    Just saw that the iMovie app will only work on iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4th gen, and iPad 2. Hmmm...

    Tom :)macwave:... missed it by that much!)

    However no way on earth can I justify this, I just hope that the apps don't all become iPad 2 apps

    I wouldn't think that would happen. Look at the phones - new apps still support the older phones. Not ALL apps, but many. They know there are nearly 15 million ipad1 owners. They won't abandon them that quickly.

    iMovie & Garage Band are probably both going to be quite processor intensive so I don't think either will be available for iPad 1.

    According to the Apple web site, iMovie is the one that's only for iPhone 4, 4th generation iPod touch, and iPad 2. No restrictions on Garage Band.

    Tom :)macwave:... Sigh...)

    imovie was not a great app for the iPhone 4 in any case and as I have said before I really can't see why anyone would be using an ipad as a video device

    I hate myself for wanting one

    I was really disappointed with iMovie for iPhone. It's not intuitive at all.

    I will have an iPad 2 with (Product) Red smart cover. I will however be selling my children to the slave trade to finance this.
