    I am fairly certain that Apple][ didn't buy to day-trade like you..... (not that there's anything wrong with that; but, good luck).

    I was just looking to make a quick trade, buy high, and then sell a little higher. I recently got my account upgraded without any limits on it, so I'm just having a bit of fun and getting used to not having any trading limits.



    Oh, I was wrong, I guess... I'll leave you two to carry on. \

    On that note: does the camera adapter/sd card reader provide "sd slot" functionality?

    Yes... for uploading images and videos.

    iPad and the Camera Connection Kit support standard photo formats, including JPEG and RAW, along with SD and HD video formats, including H.264 and MPEG-4.

    Actually, I did.



    I couldn't resist messing around for a moment.



    I will also be going long on AAPL, but I just needed some quick excitement today.

    Yes and with some additional software you can transfer more than just pictures and video.

    As of last night in the UK, it now says 'Dispatched in 2-3 weeks'. Very glad I got my pre-order in with delivery on the 16th!

    I can't make this stuff up, people.



    Yes you just did. You don't know what their supply constraints are. They are releasing in more countries than they ever had before.

    Not being able to upload a photo to a website is a major pain in the ass. Every content management platform now has to have their own iOS app just because you cannot upload photos through the browser. That is why we have a Craigslist app, a Wordpress app, a Facebook app, a match.com app etc, etc. Why? Simply because you cannot get at your photos from within the browser. This crap is annoying. Do people really think this is a better system than a real computer?



    That is a major problem with Apple: its complete and utter refusal to accommodate persons with special needs.



    Cheers

    By the way, the "new iPad" not to be called the iPad3 according to Apple, is actually a "Prequel iPad" which follows Hollywood's penchant for stretching out a winning series. Ergo: iPad1 - iPad2 (the sequel) - iPad (the prequel). What's next? Prototype iPad, In Utero iPad, Blastocyst iPad, or just: Steve Job's "Early Wet-Dream iPad? Possibilities are almost limitless!

    I ordered mine wednesday after announcement, but don't think I am excited enough to get in on the circle-..thing going on in this thread. I'm still worried I will try to do something simple that I do everyday on my touchpad, but won't be able to do on the new iPad. What? Something I can't do on an iPad you say? Surely I jest? No, I don't. That simple little thing is download a torrent file on the pad and immediately uploading it to the Transmission web interface on my server. What's that you say? Just grab a link and submit to Transmission that way? No go when you have to be authenticated to grab the link. I guess I could just remote into my server and do it that way? Or maybe not, cause remote desktop seems to fail cause of my dual monitors

    How about it's just an iPad. Ya know like the MBA is an MBA no matter what version it is.

    Use iControlBits to do what you want with your torrent files.



    Edit: nm it's removed from the store now. Glad I have it backed up.

    Actually they are quite accommodating to people who have special needs for example their assistive technologies like Voice Over. The people who they fail to accommodate are those who actually have normal everyday computing needs. Those people have to jump through hoops to get anything done.

    Are you aware that Apple still makes "real computers" also?



    If the iPad doesn't suit your special needs, then perhaps a MacBook Air would suffice. Or do you also need an optical drive?... there's a MacBook Pro for that.
