    Just reading this story on CNN Fortune...sorry if it's been posted already.

    Turns out the facts in the keynote given by Steve Jobs weren't entirely accurate.

    "I have a lot of respect for Steve Jobs and Apple's products. It's just a shame that all the truth-bending destroys the keynotes." - Seth Weintraub CNN Writer

    Here is the article:

    Stand by for the "I'm an iPad." "And I'm a Xoom/Tab/Streak." ads. :D

    BTW, what IS the RAM and camera resolutions on the new iPad? Just asking......

    I noticed that when the article came up, it was sponsored by Google. If God himself came down and blessed Steve Jobs or the iPad 2, there are those who would claim it did not happen, or that it was the Devil in disguise.

    So are you claiming that Jobs might not have bent the facts a little bit? It doesn't really matter what advertising banner is on top of the page if the assertions the author is making are correct does it?

    Well, to continue with the Biblical analogy, it does say in the second book of Corinthians chapter 11 and verses 13-15 that:

    "For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works."

    I am sure that the facts according to Apple are not what their rivals might say, but the article nitpicked every detail like a lawyer in court fighting a lost cause and not having anything to work with.
