    I really like that they went with the brightness and volume controls on the final version! It's really handy!

    How do you close an App that is running in the background with 4.2.whatever?

    I'm so excited for this to come out...like a kid waiting for Christmas kind of excited. I really think that, aside from not having Flash, the inability to multi-task really drives me bonkers. It's going to make the Ipad even more important to me.

    I've thought about getting my hands on the current GM version but I'm a total chicken. Therefore I get up every morning and read up to see if there was a miracle over night!

    Thanks for sharing that vid. I know it's outdated a bit but it's nice to get an idea of what to expect.
