Associate Online Editor Flo tests her typing skills on the iPad, a MacBook Pro's keyboard, and the standard Apple keyboard to see how iPad stacks up against a standard keyboard. The results actually surprised us.
This morning, we hung out with some fabulous Apple fans at the downtown
Apple Store in downtown San Francisco. The two lines of Apple faithful
extended around the block, and almost every eager patron had their hands
filled with free Krispy Kreme donuts and Starbucks coffee. We went down
the line to ask a few of the loyal patrons about the first thing
they'll do with their iPad. Some were incredibly eager to take home the
package and rip it apart, while others were more impressed with how it
will function as a developer tool. Take a look at the video for
all the highlights--there's even a special appearance from iJustine.
While at the Unity booth, we ran into Jonathan Czeck, director of
technology and the co-founder of Graveck games. You may be familiar with
one of their popular iPhone games, Skee-ball. It hit the #1 paid apps
spot during the holidays and is still hanging out in the top paid apps
list. What started out as a part-time side project for the developers
turned into a surefire hit. Now, the company is gearing up to prepare
for the April launch of Apple's iPad.
