And if you Google even further you can find lots more about them too.....but I won't spoil your fun.....

    And all this boils down to:

    "is YOUR Google broken?"

    I've often wondered what would have happened if no one had thought of search engines. Yes - there was a time and - yes - I was around then...

    iPadForums.net was originally started as iSlateForums.net when Apple Tablet rumors were first going around. Being huge technology nerds, we were very excited about the next wave of tablets (Android and Apple) that were coming out and wanted to develop a good resource for Apple Tablet owners. During the first announcement of the Apple iPad we quickly changed the name and iPadForums.net was born.

    As you can see with this post, I was one of the first to pre-order the iPad 1:
    Official iPad Pre-order List

    We have a lot of fun running the site and have since expanded with the recent addition of iPhoneForums.net. We have developed many good friends on the forum and look forward to the future!

    Wow, thanks iDan! That was interesting reading! I missed out on the initial rush because the price sort of put me off! I'd just bought an iPhone 3GS in February.
