    So I'm actually the guy at the very front of the line. ;) My friend wearing the blue jacket is the one getting an iPad 16GB WiFi model today, while I was simply his ride into town.

    Originally, his iPod touch 3rd generation had been damaged several weeks ago, and he was in the market to replace it with another. However, after a few weeks of research and some discussion, he was convinced that he wanted a "larger" replacement, if you will. As such, I recommended the iPad to him as it's a viable alternative to the iPod touch and could almost literally be dubbed the "iPod touch XL."

    As an IT journalist covering various aspects of the emerging tablet computing industry, I felt inclined to drive up to San Francisco this weekend and experience a proper launch of a potentially trendsetting portable device at the flagship store itself. While I may not be purchasing an iPad and have no intentions of purchasing the first-generation iteration, I am looking forward to this launch as much as any of the rest of the guys in line.

    Here's to hoping for a timely, safe event with some great press coverage and analysis. :)

    I am really torn, as much as I want to go stand in line I think I will wait a little while for the first wave to subside. They ran a piece on Fox2 Detroit this morning and they said that one of our four local stores had more Ipads than just the reserved units. That would be good because now that I have had plenty of time to obsess over this now I think I need at least 32g, instead of 16.

    I can just imagine the scene as they open the doors, something like an old Jerry Lewis movie with blue haired old ladies rushing the poor store folks attempting to maintain order.

    Have a great time and enjoy the full experience at the store!!!!

    Just google ' Max Ackermann iPad ' !

    Theres over 9000 hits already thanks to associated press, they left out the ipadforums.net part for some reasons that somewhat seem obvious but still wierd.

    However, when showing off my ipad to several news station cameras guess what was on my screen! :)
