    Just curious. I got mine on Monday, and it's still in the box. LOL

    We are packing to move in a week, and just really have not had time to play with them.

    I was 1/2 tempted to list these 2 on eBay, and just order 2 more till after we move :D

    Hahahaha!

    I doubt I will be able to wait long at all. If I manage to pick one up on Friday after work, it will be right before we are due to watch a marathon at the cinema - so I will try to sneak a peak before the movies start. Then as soon as we get home (around 2.30am) I will whack it on charge, ready for sync-ing when I wake up :D

    I put the box on the sofa and ran (as well as I could with crutches) for the camera to take piccies of it and send one to my friends.

    I used the FedEx guy's signing stylus to break the sealing tape.

    Don't worry about sneaking a peek, there's squat all that's installed stock. Just keep it until you're ready to rock and roll when you get home.

    Without apps, the iPad is a sad and lonely wasteland :(

    I realized this because I had them activate it in store the second I bought it and was playing around until I got home, which took far, far, far, far too long.

    Synced, bought about $30 in apps within 20 minutes and went to town.

    Also note, the thing comes almost completely charged, so you don't have tons to worry about there :)

    Finally opened them up last night, and played until 2am :D

    They just will not connect to my AT&T 2wire router tho, just won't take the password. So hopped on Neighbors open WiFi

    Don't care too much, we are moving in 8 days and pulling out AT&T service this weekend most likely......

    I had a 4.5 hour drive home from the apple store I picked mine up in. So I waited 4.5 hours and 1 second exactly. ;)

    I yelled out at the FedX guy as he pulled up in the driveway to tear the box open and have my iPad ready for me while I climbed down two flights of stairs to get to him. By the time I got down, he didn't want to give it up :p

    Im hoping that the delivery slot of 9am-5pm doesn't end up being 5pm.

    I hate all day delivery slots. It means I cant do anything else all day - I daren't go near the back of the house in case I dont hear the door, and I try not to have the tv/music/games on just in case the door knocker is one of those gentle "tap tap tap" oiks. Come on, if you're going to knock, give it some welly!

    But once it arrives, it will be rip open, screen protector on (well, try to), sync, and play.
