    Bring it on! I for one can't wait for multitasking. It is the only thing that slightly irritates me about iPad. 10am US time is 6pm here in UK so we have to wait an extra 8 hours. Bring it on!!!

    I hope it is what you want it to be. There aren't that many applications, yet, that really multitask, and the iPad has 1/2 the memory of the iPhone 4. I just hope that iOS is making the decisions that you want it to be making regarding what it keeps in memory and what it allows to take processor time.

    When I was using one of the beta releases, I enjoyed it very much, but I have to say that I wasn't really doing a lot in the way of real multitasking.

    "Multitasking" doesnt require ram.....it is a state save mode. I have used the beta and it works wonderfully. Everyone is so stuck on this desktop meaning of multitasking....they have nothing to do with eachother...you don't have 2 apps running side by side...you close one app and it saves a little state file to identify where you left off...thats why you can power down and come back to that app. The only thing that runs in the BG is 1 music player at a time. Again, not very memory intensive!!

    You're 8 hours closer to 6 pm though. No extra waiting required!

    By the way the US has four time zones (and Canada has six) so there is no such thing as "US time". (In fact I'm understating US time zones because I'm not counting Alaska and Hawaii, which have their own zones.)

    yes....Apple went stupid on us and reassigned the switch to MUTE....that will be fixed very soon on my iPad.

    Multitasking is not important at all but the folders are what I am looking forward to.

    4.2--Not Today, Maybe Tuesday

    Grrr....per MacRumors

    Contradicting a report from earlier this week that correctly predicted the release of Mac OS X 10.6.5 yesterday and also claimed that iOS 4.2 will be released tomorrow, iPhoneHellas reports [Google translation] that iOS 4.2 will not launch tomorrow and may debut next Tuesday, November 16th.

    iPhoneHellas has offered correct information on iOS releases several times in the past, including accurately pinpointing the release of iPhone OS 2.2 ten days ahead of time and iOS 4.0.1 several hours before its launch.

    iOS 4.2 will finally unify Apple's iOS devices on iOS 4, bringing such features as multitasking, home screen folders, and Game Center to the iPad for the first time while also delivering AirPrint, AirPlay, and a number of other enhancements to the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.

    My apologies! I of course am aware of the different time zones in North America, but I was Being lazy as I couldn't remember at the time if it was ET or PT. However the older I get the more confused I get, and as it is now 7.30am and I have just woken up what did you mean by "8 hours closer to 6pm.........no extra waiting required". ??

    iPhoneHellas reports that iOS 4.2 will be out "maybe Tuesday." Those on hunger watch can get a bite to eat so they can get through the weekend. :);)

    According to Macstories (read on appadvice ipad app), the release is delayed at least one week due to wifi issues. Hoping it is not true, but it very well may be.

    No link sorry...

    You all are confused. Everyone will get access to the update at the same instant in time. If it appears on the Apple servers at 10PST, that is just a frame of reference. Your local day/time at that instant will depend on your location, but nobody can get to the update before anyone else just because of their time zone. Sure, the Aussie may see the update post early on Saturday where he lives, but there haven't been people in New York downloading it for half a day before he could.
    This is one reason all military computers use GMT.
