    So far, after watching 4 videos...all of the people are shown with their legs propped up when using the iPad.

    Well...sure enough, it looks like propping your legs up in a requirement for using the iPad.

    Just finished watching them all. Pages looks sweet.

    HX_Guy, I noticed the same thing. I am looking forward to getting my hands on one to see how comfortable it is to type on in real world situations.

    I don't think so. I just tested on two different versions of Chrome (Chrome 4.1.249.1042 and Chromium 5.0.335.0) and all seems well.

    I've seen most of that content before, although this "iworks.com" is new news at least to me. I would have like to see what is involved in this "export" option. Does it share wirelessly to Mac/Windows/Linux? Does the iWork.com offer an option to upload to other document hosting sites?

    More questions still then answers.

    I hope iBook has a more advance method of organizing then just that shelf. If it takes PDFs i've got a growing collection of digital referance material that takes up two full sized book cases in their dead tree verison. Having to flick through only... what was that 16 books... at a time would be quite bothersome.

    Can't wait to watch when I get home... Company policy prohibits any type of 'enjoyment' during working hours! :D

    If I loose my job, I won't be able to pay for all my new 'tech-toys'!! :)

    I am pretty sure it has a list view. I think that is what the button in the upper left next to Edit is for.

    I guess I'm at odds with Apples designe guide of "they should not control file structure". Again I hope I allows the creation of sub-catagories.

    Lol... a thought to developers running around here... "Spine View" pack everything together in a vertical strip format.

    Awesome idea!!

    I'm a developer and I'd be very surprised (and disappointed) if this has not already been done. You should be able to touch the spine and have the book flip to the cover view. Or at least something similar to the album view on the iPod...

    Ideas like this are why I'm on this forum. Thanks! :)

    Thanks for the Post...just watched them all. Good Stuff!

    I have not seen any "APPS" being demo'ed. Still keeping my fingers crossed that all my iPhone APPS are going to work.

    I remember reading somewhere that you can either view it as a bookshelf or you can view it by categories and sub-categories, and apparently very detailed.

    So easy a cave man can do it!

    After watching all the videos, a couple of observations I think. On mail they said you can have your own mail folders whereas 'my iPhone only has Inbox, Sent and Trash. I can't seem to add a "Save" folder. I dont save a lot of things but I'm trying to minimize the use of my PC.

    I noticed on iWorks Pages you can export in Word format but iWorks Numbers doesn't export in Excel. Minor item I think but just noted it.

    Also no reference to printing so looks like either download documents to PC or use an app. I'm hoping HP will offer something similar to the iPhone Photo app they offer.

    Looking forward to reading reviews next week and to getting my 64GB/3G in a month. I did notice that when it was being held it was suspicously steady, like supported from behind ;)
