British humor targeted at the iPad 2 makes for a hilarious video skit
British host Charlie Brooker has his take on the Apple iPad 2, and the mania that surrounded its launch, adding to the list of comedians having fun with Apple's second generation tablet, like Conan O'Brian before.

Exalted people standing in line for a gadget is obviously not what he grew up with, so he has some hilarious comments about the whole situation in his TV show. We especially liked the part where he says that the promo for the iPad 2 features people "... ignoring their surroundings to gloat at a globing tray. We saw them failing to notice the Eiffel Tower, shunning the Golden Gate Bridge, ignoring the Coliseum, turning their backs on a beautiful Greek island, and blanking the Notre Dame Cathedral."

Whether you agree with him or not, we are sure it will make you smile at least once.

true so true and FYI did you know that gas is predicted to hit $5 dollers a gallon by May but the US is sitting on an oil reserve that would last over a thousand years plus since we wouldn't be relaying on other country's for crude our gas prices would go down to estimated amounts of 0.15 to 0.35 cents a gallon. Plus we would be able to use the money that we pay other country's for good on our selves hence creating thousands of jobs and erasing the $3 trillion dollar debt in only one year.

Im American and I can honestly tell you since I lived in Los Angeles California and West Kensington, England that Everyone are more intelligent then Americans. If it wasn't true why is the United States in a debt of $3 Trillion dollars, we can't fix this country yet we rant on about how great we still are and how better this nations is compared to others. Well those times are long over and Europe and Asia are leading the way the United States no longer was the right or the means to think and act with such ignorance.

The thing that strikes me the most, at the same time elliminating the iPad(Any_Number) from my wishlist, is the fact, that there is NO MS Office for it.
The have it for the Apple's computers, but not for the iPad... WTF??
So... after all... it is nothing but a Big Giant iPod...
I'm still waiting for a tablet that can launch the MS Office. How much more time?

Well, it sounds like MS won't be getting a tablet OS out till middle of 2012. At least that's the latest word, and that's expected to be just a preview or beta version. So, maybe 2013 you might find a tablet that runs Word. Or MS might give up by then and port Office to a decent mobile OS. . . like Android ;)
