    To veblen, are you saying there's now backgrounding for non-core apps? Finally!



    The MLB app lets you background the audio in safari. After you select a game for audio it presents you with a quicktime icon which launches safari and directs you to a url. You select a play game audio button and the game audio commences. The webpage has another button which returns you to the MLB app. Usually I just home button out and go about other tasks with the game playing. I think pandora and aol radio don't use the background in safari functionality because it takes away the ease of purchasing the track you are listening to.

    Random and unrelated again.







    Why are you here, really? Don't answer cause the answer is you're here to distract.

    You, masquerading as a "concerned consumer!" LOL!!



    "Should we take more care than normal with the device?" Priceless!



    I wish you two would give it a rest instead of hijacking this thread. I don't know the poster's history, and I don't care. Fact is, he hasn't done anything in this thread to be criticized for, whereas you two are very annoying.



    Now you'll probably accuse me of being another alias for him. Chill out, and drop it for now, alright? When there's an actual violation, you can pounce on it then..

    Have you tried any streaming sites? I'm a huge NASCAR fan and I can't wait to use an iPad to get the streaming Raceview that NASCAR broadcasts during each week's race. Raceview gives you the driver's view and crew comments (audio from driver to crew-chief) for your favorite driver as well as many more stats and race visualizations. Right now I use my MBP on the couch next to me during the race but it will be suweeet to use the iPad instead.

    Does it seem to bend in the middle if you press it?



    Thanks.



    Yes it feels rock solid. No flex that I can feel.

    We got this model for testing, to try out the platform. I won't be putting much music on it right now and it'll be a mail and browsing appliance for now. But some of these apps are beautiful. Epicurious for one, the Adobe Ideas app is pretty slick too.

    Nothing better than buying a new toy and finding it so nicely packaged. It all adds to the excitement no end.

    I was watching some really young kid type on one at at an Apple store today. He was absoulutly flying. I mean much faster than I can type on a regular keyboard (and I'm not bad).

    Makes me laugh at the fudsters who were saying Apple didn't show anyone typing on it in the iPad commercial because "it's Hell to type on"

    Mmmm... I'm amazed at even MY efficiency on the iPhone at typing (and I probably AM a fudster)!

    No problems typing on it here.... I find the keyboard pretty good for a soft keyboard.

    Would someone be able to post the dimensions of the box the iPad box came in?



    I'm thinking of ordering one for use here in Australia and I need to know the dimensions of the outer box so I can work out the DHL shipping costs.



    Thanks in advance.

    What do you mean by this? Can I use the bluetooth keyboard that is already married to my Mac Pro? Or do I have to have a different bluetooth keyboard - I do have others if necessary - dedicated to the Pad?



    Great Pics. Thanks for such a comprehensive and well shot set.

    Could it be the iPad is a bit vulnerable to shock?



    Should we take more care than normal with the device?



    In an interview with S Fry, Ive said they designed it thus because they expect it to be thrown around more than a laptop. i.e. if anything, you can take less care than normal with it.

    I use a flash blocker on my MBP and AI articles load with blocked flash ads, so I would assume AI uses flash ads. Then, looking at the second to last photo of the iPad, in which it features the web app with an AI article up, the ads seems to be supported in the web app...are the ads just optimized for the iPad, is that actually flash, what?s the deal?

    11" x 10" x 4" , weight 3.1 lbs



    But that is just the iPad box itself. You gonna need a brown protecting box, just like shown in the pictures, and I guess those are 14" x 12" x 6" give or take.





    Mine is on its way to Belgium Can't wait!!!!!

    Anyone know if this works? I too am looking at the iPad for this same reason. It utilizes a java applet I think...
