    Anyone got one yet?
    So those of us elsewhere in the world are anxious to hear - anyone in the US got hold of an iPad yet?

    What's it like?

    I know it is still early over there, but that is no excuse.

    Fixing to head out to the store in a few. 7am here and planning on showing up there an hour before opening. Am hoping I don't have to spend more than a couple of hours there at the outside - fat chance huh?

    In line here in Dallas. Standing at # 20. Up to about 30 now.

    Looks like there were only about 10 that spent the night.

    There are 2 lines, one for reserves and one for the others.

    Handing out free coffee. My kind of folks here.

    As much as I've found the iPad a flop for my uses, I'm actually excited for you guys whom are so psyched. I was checking out the iPad videos last night, specifically the ones concerning Keynote and iWork, and I was kind of impressed by them. If they work as well as the ads make them seem to, they should be easy to work with and a success in that manner of speaking.

    I have also reconsidered my stance on the potential of the iPad and the future of this type of device. I have the Apple Bluetooth keyboard, so understand how truly portable it is. Add to that a portable bluetooth mouse, and all you really need is some progress in terms of how powerful we can make those A4's and get some powerhouse software in the game.

    That will take a while (years) but who knows, perhaps the iPad will speed things along in that way.

    So, are they handing out doughnuts with that coffee ?

    No doughnuts, but they have come around now with water, soda and monster energy drinks.

    Up to about 40 in the reserve line and just over 30 in the hopeful line.

    Nice. What time do the doors actually open?
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
