    i'm probably going to be a good girl and wait till my birthday in June. Hopefully we will have a good idea of 3G and prices for data plans etc.

    anyone know what the data plans for US 3G ones are like?

    how heavy a usage would 250mb be? see i have a contract for £30 at the moment with my iphone that is coming to the end over the summer- i can then get unlimited with pay as you go for £15 with my supplier, if i could get plan at £15 per month for data- i'm sorted!

    fingers crossed!

    A girlfriend of mine is a photographer here in the Westport area...I just noticed this new advert on her website:

    "We are now offering our wedding photography clients a special iPad, complete with a wedding album from your day, ibooks about successful marriage and other special bonuses. Our technology consultant is always on the cutting edge! Please inquire about this exciting new product!"

    How cool is that?

    ABC News got a sneak peek at the iPad.

    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://widgets.clearspring.com/o/4ae8d36a3102598f/4bb48a8444212438/4ae8d36a3102598f/50a6facc/-cpid/7bc13ecb198ebf28" id="W4ae8d36a3102598f4bb48a8444212438" width="332" height="270"><param name="movie" value="http://widgets.clearspring.com/o/4ae8d36a3102598f/4bb48a8444212438/4ae8d36a3102598f/50a6facc/-cpid/7bc13ecb198ebf28" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><param name="allowNetworking" value="all" /><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /></object>

    Excited yet? :yes:

    Tom :)macwave:... there's probably an app for that! Whatever "that" is.)

    Well, the time draws closer for the iPad to actually end up in consumer's hands. And the hype continues! :mental:

    Last Wednesday night, the iPad figured prominently in the ABC sitcom series "Modern Family". :thumbsup:

    This morning, there's this article in Time magazine (online). :thumbsup:

    And finally, Disney has committed to providing iPad content under the banners of Disney, ABC, ESPN and Marvel. :thumbsup:

    This gadget may shape up to be as big as the Steve Jobs Reality Distortion Field. I particularly like the last line of the Time article:
    Tom :)macwave:... I want an iPad cover with "Don't Panic" on the front in large, friendly letters!)

    Stephen Fry has an ipad. He's been Tweeting about it since yesterday. I think he has a video of him unpacking it. :lol:
