But it seems almost a worst deal than some of the extended warranties.

Because it is a shitty deal, just like every program Best Buy does.

Then why don't they change their name to Worst Buy?  icon_lol A friend of mine said she sent her failed PC to the Best Buy near her for repairs and I just shuddered...

Does anyone here type anything of length on their iPad? I can't be the only reporter/writer type here.  icon_smile I've fiddled with them at the store but I think that's different than banging out an article, typing up some notes, on a touchscreen. I realize you can add keyboards via docks, cases and Bluetooth -- it just seems to defeat the purpose and charm of the device as I blahblahblah'd earlier.

I realize it's not optimal but if the Star Trek: TNG crews can live with all touch-screen, I'm just curious if I can.  icon_smile

I would say no.  If I had to type something long, I would much prefer the PC.

Web browser, Games, Email , Music , Alarm clock , Notes (groc list/to do shit) 

That covers 98% of what I do on my ipad.

Its on my nightstand at night, on my desk at work, plugged into my car stereo when I am driving, and  in one of my kids hands when I am at home.

Yeah, don't get rid of your laptop, particularly if you're a writer. iPad is a fantastic device, but I don't enjoy using it for any kind of content creation. The touch keyboard simply sucks too hard to bang out anything of length without wanting to shoot yourself.

Where there's a will, there's a way.  icon_smile Albeit, that's a short passage sort of "typing over text," whereas I'm often typing while reading something other than the screen.

How to Type (81 WPM) on the iPad (hawking the TapTyping app)
http://blog.flairify.com/how-to-type-81-wpm-fon-the-ipad

Most of my articles for our e-mail newsletter are maybe 250 to 1,100 words or so (varies wildly depending on subject matter, but they don't generally want me to go much longer than that). I do an occasional piece for our print magazine, or sometimes they'll expand something I did for the e-mail newsletter for print (also adding graphics, photos etc.). I think maybe 2,000 or 2,500 is about the longest we'll go for one of those.

Thanks for the insights, guys.

I think I'd run into issues cause a lot of stories have numbers in them (dollar amounts, volumes, capacities etc.), and I wish the onscreen keyboard had that numbers row at the top like physical keyboards.

You can always get the keyboard add-on or a bluetooth keyboard if you want to get serious about typing...  I recently got a case that comes with a bluetooth keyboard which works fairly well.

I actually bought the bluetooth keyboard with the idea that I'd use it for the iPad - I don't.  It sits at home doing nothing now.  I can type quite well on the iPad keyboard (though not as fast as a true keyboard).  I use mine on a daily basis for notes during meetings and I use it exclusively on an airplane for email/outlining thoughts/etc...

I find the iPad keyboard more than adequate for my use.  Of course, I'm typically not writing anything that isn't very forgiving of typos either smile.

The thing I found most interesting about the March 2nd presentation (which I noted in the Wanderers forums the same day) was the casual yet deliberate use of the phrase "post-PC world."  Engadget has a great editorial talking about this:

Don't want to be a spoiler, but I'm glad they kept the same screen/resolution. This was the #1 reason I was going to have buyer's remorse over my original ipad.  Now I can enjoy my outdated device without regret!

Everyone uses devices differently. I will likely skip iPad 2, and wait for the next model. I use my iPad every day, for both entertainment and productivity (I type a great deal both on the screen and on a keyboard dock).

This, to me, is the perfect iPad upgrade: it keeps Apple in a very strong competitive position, likely to maintain their tablet dominance, so the software will continue to flow -- but it doesn't compel me to go out and spend another $600. Particularly since I just bought a new Mac last week!

I never miss Flash on my iPad. In fact, I've turned Flash off by default on Safari on my Mac.

I managed to crank out a 2,000 word short story on my iPad because the battery on my laptop was dead. I was flying back from Horror Realm in Pittsburgh and just had to finish this stupid story. It was painful on the touch screen but I powered through it and edited it the next day. I now have a keyboard for the ipad but I barely use it. I have a MBP for all my writing needs.

This release reminds me of the iPhone 3GS, where they didn't do too much more than enhance the processor and add video.  I'm excited, but probably not excited enough to get in line on Friday. 

That said, it's interesting how our perspectives and demands have changed and grown over the years, particularly when it comes to Apple products.  Think about your PC or laptops a few years back.  When they first went from single to dual core processors, it was a huge deal in terms of an upgrade.  Likewise with graphics, I remember vividly paying top dollar to get 40-50% performance increases.   And how often would you get that kind of a graphics performance boost on a laptop?  Now we're talking a device that has gone to a dual core processor plus boosted graphics performance as much as 900% (seriously I don't believe it but we'll see) - while simultaneously maintaining battery life AND shaving the size down further (I'm going to assume that like the iPad it won't have any heat issues) without changing the price.  Oh yeah and adding front and back cameras to boot.  From an engineering standpoint, it's a crazy amount of improvement.

I'm in this boat... if they don't make it widely accessible I will wait.  I don't have to spend the money, but i will if they give me the opportunity to.

I assume keeping the prices the same as the iPad's is one reason. Certainly I'd pay $100 more for better quality cameras, maybe a memory card slot, etc. But they seemed fixated on matching the iPad's pricing, and I'm not enough of a manufacturing economics geek to know how all that adds up.  icon_smile

My take is they intend it mostly to help with Face Time, Skype and other video conferencing stuff. I don't really know why people would want to hold a bulky (relatively) iPad up as a still camera on a regular basis. If I get one, I'll be loathe to ever take it out in public due to their being such a growing theft target, especially on subways and really, anywhere someone can make a quick getaway.

My iPod Touch 4th gen has a lousy camera too-- actually, it takes beautiful video, it's just not worth much as a still camera (no auto focus, no flash, low megapixel). Some think that's a cost thing, others think they just want to keep the idea of a relatively good camera w/ flash exclusive to the iPhone. I don't buy the idea that it's cause the Touch 4G is so thin -- we've all seen what camera makers are doing in terms of nearly wafer and credit card thin digital cameras that are decently featured.

CNN Buyers' Guide for this Friday (no pre-orders):
http://www.cnn.com/2011/TECH/gaming.gadgets/03/08/buying.ipad2.mashable/index.html?hpt=Sbin
Quote
Instead, the iPad 2 will be available via Apple.com at some point early Friday, and in retail stores starting at 5:00pm. Online reports indicate that Apple.com sales will start at 12:01am PST on March 11, 2011. East coast buyers, set your clocks for 3am.

At Apple.com, users can choose between white or black variants in Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi + 3G. Users can select either Verizon or AT&T for their Wi-Fi + 3G unit.

Apple promises "fast, free shipping," which indicates they are using 2-day Fed Ex or UPS. Depending on when an order goes through, it's possible users could get units on Monday March 14, 2011.

We'll be realistic and expect that most users who place an order on Friday will receive their packages on Tuesday March 15, 2011. Like Caesar, you'll need to watch for the Ides of March.

Apple retail stores will begin selling the iPad 2 at 5:00pm. Typically, Apple shuts down its stores for a few hours prior to launch in order to get signage, inventory and staff in place.

Lines may start at some outdoor Apple stores as early as Friday morning (if not Thursday night), but indoor mall locations may start later, depending on mall policies and general shopping traffic.

Retail partners

In addition to the Apple retail stores, the iPad 2 will also be available at Best Buy, Target, Walmart and Sam's Club.

Verizon Wireless will also be selling the iPad 2 on Friday March 11, 2011. None of the retail launch partners have specified if sales will take place both in-store and online, but we expect that in-store sales will not begin until 5:00pm.
Ugh. I normally only stay up until 3 a.m. to play games. We'll see...

Shucks, they've moved the online order time to 1 a.m. Pacific (4 a.m. Eastern) on Friday instead of midnight. So I think I'm out cause I have to get something resembling a good night's sleep (I've already been up too late playing Rift the last couple nights).
http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/11/03/10/apple_will_begin_taking_online_ipad_2_orders_at_1_a_m_pt_4_a_m_et_friday.html
Although maybe if I just set all my clock's to Pacific time, I can outsmart myself into staying awake that long!  icon_razz


*Endgadget posted its full iPad2 review today:
http://www.engadget.com/2011/03/09/ipad-2-review/
Basically, as known, the cameras suck (about the same as my iPod Touch's), but they seem enthusiastic about it otherwise and the battery life actually seemed better (by nearly an hour) than iPad's:
Quote
It might frustrate the competition to hear this, but it needs to be said: the iPad 2 isn't just the best tablet on the market, it feels like the only tablet on the market.

As much as we'd like to say that something like the Xoom has threatened Apple's presence in this space, it's difficult (if not impossible) to do that. Is the iPad 2 a perfect product? Absolutely not. The cameras are severely lacking, the screen -- while extremely high quality -- is touting last year's spec, and its operating system still has significant annoyances, like the aggravating pop-up notifications.

At a price point of $499, and lots of options after that (like more storage and models that work on both Verizon's and AT&T's 3G networks), there's little to argue about in the way of price, and in terms of usability, apps like GarageBand prove that we haven't even scratched the surface of what the iPad can do.

For owners of the previous generation, we don't think Apple's put a fire under you to upgrade. Unless you absolutely need cameras on your tablet, you've still got a solid piece of gear that reaps plenty of the benefits of the latest OS and apps. For those of you who haven't yet made the leap, feel free to take a deep breath and dive in -- the iPad 2 is as good as it gets right now. And it's really quite good.

lol!  Yeah I was just complaining about this - midnight would have been great for me but now I have another hour to either try to sleep and wake myself up or just sit it out.  I guess I could play some extra DA2 smile  Or I'm still debating one of the stores - with Best Buy, Target, AT&T, Verizon and Walmart all in the lineup I'm kind of on the fence as to going for a retail sale...

Fwiw, Laptop Magazine's take:
http://www.laptopmag.com/review/tablets/apple-ipad-2-verizon-wireless.aspx
Quote
Apple didn't need to do a lot to stay in the tablet lead, but it has certainly done enough to create more distance between itself and the rest of the field. The thinner, lighter iPad 2 raises the bar for design. And while the new dual-core processor didn't blow us away, it provides a noticeable performance boost while making resource-hungry apps such as iMovie feel buttery smooth. Then there's the Smart Case, which demonstrates Apple's uncanny hardware and software integration.

The camera quality isn't great, and there's no 4G data or mobile hotspot feature. At the same time, Android 3.0 tablets such as the Motorola Xoom do a better job with multitasking and notifications. But when you look at the whole package--hardware, software, apps, battery life, accessories, and price--the iPad 2 is the king of tablets.
Keep in mind both reviews have lots of testing data and details if you want that stuff. I'm just quoting the "verdicts."  icon_smile So yes, it'll sound a lot like what we've all predicted. Read the details if you want more.  icon_smile

I wonder how many they had to allocate to online orders because that wait time happened after only a couple hours.

Did anybody order?  icon_smile

It's supposed to be at several stores including BB, Target etc., so I might end up getting it that way later.

totally forgot about it, but it would have been an impulse buy anyways.

I stayed up a little past my bedtime and they actually started the orders a bit early.  Ordered and had a 3-5 day delivery time.  I'll probably still stop by Best Buy and/or Apple on the way home to check out the lines.  If they aren't horrible I may try to get one tonight and cancel the order.

Guy at work grabbed me a voucher this morning at Best Buy for the black 32 gig wifi. Right on! I will be picking it up after 5:00 today.

I've been without mine for over a week and I really miss it.

I thought the vouchers weren't being passed out until 4:30?  Was this on the down low, so to speak?

Nope, totally on the up and up. Our local Best Buy handed out vouchers at 10am. Just now getting a chance to sync it up and play with it.
