You can watch the iPad 2 event on a live blog here: Live from Apple's iPad 2 event -- Engadget
And Steve's there.
The Jobsonian Reality Distortion Field remains intact!
Tom macwave:... hey Skywatcher, did he tell you he was going to be there when you last talked?)
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.)
actually the cover is perhaps the best bit
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!)
Im thinking ipad 2, wifi only, 32GB + black leather smart cover
Hmmm... wonder what we can get for our 1st gen iPads on eBay?
Tom macwave:.... no... stop it... quit that.... don't even go there...)
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.
I think it said iMovie is for ipad2 only :/ but yeah I hope it doesnt go that way at least not so soon
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.
It's a disease.

There is no cure know to mankind!
Tom macwave:... congratulations!)
Did I ever tell you my cousins partner is a super duper whizzy clever Apple engineer in California....?
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.
It will be so worth it, you won't regret it!
