    Oprah had her Ultimate Favourite Things show this week, and once again showered praise on the iPad, saying “Words cannot describe what I feel for this magnificent device. I really think it’s the best invention of the century so far. Thanks to my iPad, I now read about four newspapers a day.†Oprah added that she also uses her iPad to keep a journal and watch movies, TV shows and the news, and that she loves writing on it so much that she even turns in her column for O magazine early now. As part of the Favourite Things show, Oprah gave away an iPad to every audience member, and AppleInsider reports that she even went as far as to say that the iPad is her “No. 1 favourite thing ever.†She even lowered one from the ceiling with angel’s wings fixed to it (does that make it a Fly-By-Wire iPad rather than a Wi-Fi iPad?!), and danced around it as the audience screamed excitedly. Wow, and I thought I really loved my iPad!

    I wonder if she said it was a horrible product, if sales would decline! Like the burger!

    Might just be arguable if it means a major shift in computing and the way we interact with them. Mainframe, desktop and now genuinely portable. Frankly not before time.

    I would agree. Tho the iPhone did come out first, so think iPad would be #2.

    I just tried to view the Oprah "My Favorite Things" episode from HuluPlus only to find out it's "web only" and can't be viewed on the iPad.

    Seems ironic don't you think?
