Isn't the 4G pretty redundant on this side of the Atlantic though?


Like I said in my initial post ("The addition of 4G is an exciting prospect too, if not a little bit moot at the moment."). Please pay attention Paul. Like I said tho, it remains an exciting prospect.

Not you, I take it?

And this new photo of the president on an iPad was brought to my attention by serious minded American political blogs. Obama is an influential figure, and there is a great deal of cultural importance attached to his admiration of Steve Jobs and his adoption of APPLE products.

EDIT: FYI: The wife of Steve Jobs sat next to the First Lady at the STATE OF THE UNION address this year.

In comparison here's our fearless leader eating toast and using an iPad. According to the Guardian Cameron has a specially commissioned iPad from which he runs (ruins) the NHS and checks out the latest unemployment figures. Reportedly it cost 20,000 too, not quite sure how or why tho.-

To be fair this is the Apple thread, if you don't like it why not just close the tab? Is the heartache really worth the effort of commenting? Just move on, live your life, leave the King alone.

I'll add that I don't care, but I do have a passing interest and surely a passing interest is enough to justify being in a thread and commenting upon it? Even if that comment doesn't particularly add anything. I'm sure Super Hans doesn't really care, as indicated by his post (lets face it his too busy scoring crack and rental snakes) but he may have a passing interest in Apple and their new products?

Aha, interesting! Thanks for the photo and the link. I'm especially intrigued to hear of the price tag on his iPad. When President Obama took office, there was some discussion as to whether or not he'd be allowed to keep his Blackberry, due to concerns over security. In the end they had to devise special technology before the President could risk using the device. I assume that is why the costs on Cameron's iPad (and presumably Obama's as well) were so high - it's a custom built ultra secure model designed for use by a head of state. It probably has all sorts of non standard components under the hood

PS: Thought you Brits might appreciate this:



That's a first generation iPad sitting atop the Resolute Desk!


VIA WIKIPEDIA (CLICK) : The Resolute desk is a large, nineteenth-century partners' desk often chosen by presidents of the United States for use in the White House Oval Office as the Oval Office desk. It was a gift from Queen Victoria to President Rutherford B. Hayes in 1880 and was built from the timbers of the British Arctic Exploration ship Resolute.

Exactly - I like gadgets as much as the next person (both buying the ones I can afford and ogling the ones I can't) and fanboy or not, anyone who likes to keep tabs on the world of tech will have a passing interest in Apple, hence my following/posting in this thread.

Apologies for sounding like an arse who'd just jump into a thread, announce "I don't give a shit about this!" then jump out again, but to expand on my earlier post, in what way is it interesting, surprising or worthy of note that Obama uses an iPad? Like many others, probably one of those who invented a justification for getting one "for work" but spends more time playing Angry Birds on it than anything else!

And sorry King, I didn't want to come across as having a dig or anything - that's not my bag.

What are the chances its just a standard AV Adapter with an Apple logo attached which meant they could charge about $50 for it?

iPad Digital AV Adapter REVIEW: 3/5

It works perfectly, but because of the fact the 30 pin iPod jack has to be completely flush with the device in order to get a signal, and the 30 pin cable is loose fitting, it's constantly coming undone whenever you try to move or hold the device. It needed one of those locking style 30 pin connectors that used to ship with some iPods (the kind where you'd press the sides in order to disconnect it).

As it is, it's very difficult to hold the iPad and do video mirroring. You pretty much need to set it down on a flat table.

When the connector is attached, it functions as advertised.

Good on you! Sometimes the wait can be part of the fun, as you check status updates and track your iPad through the provinces of China all the way to your front door.

Will this be your first iPad? Did you opt for the free engraving? What accessories have you selected, or will you hold off till you have a better idea of what you might find useful?

First iPad yeah, used Apple products since 1999 though (currently running a MacBook Pro, iPhone 4 and iMac). I've been sitting back and waiting on the iPad for some time now (you can see my anticipation for the first generation one way back in this thread), but feel like I finally have a legitimate use for one in the shape of e-publishing. I'm a big kindle fan, and have finally decided to put together a "family" of digital options for a book I'm working on at the moment. The focus on text books at Apple at the moment, coupled with the really simple to use production software means that I can put together something really ambitious for relatively little financial investment. The first stage of the project has cost us less than 1000 (and thats including the cost of the iPad), and we've already covered that on pre-orders alone!

Not bought any accessories yet, looking to get a Moleskine case for it next week though.
