Just curious. I got mine on Monday, and it's still in the box. LOL

We are packing to move in a week, and just really have not had time to play with them.

I was 1/2 tempted to list these 2 on eBay, and just order 2 more till after we move :D

I admired the box for six hours until my husband came home so we could open it together. Now that is love...

You could have synced it and installed several apps & games by the time he got home. Now that is love :D

Hahahaha!

I doubt I will be able to wait long at all. If I manage to pick one up on Friday after work, it will be right before we are due to watch a marathon at the cinema - so I will try to sneak a peak before the movies start. Then as soon as we get home (around 2.30am) I will whack it on charge, ready for sync-ing when I wake up :D

I put the box on the sofa and ran (as well as I could with crutches) for the camera to take piccies of it and send one to my friends.

I used the FedEx guy's signing stylus to break the sealing tape.

Don't worry about sneaking a peek, there's squat all that's installed stock. Just keep it until you're ready to rock and roll when you get home.

Without apps, the iPad is a sad and lonely wasteland :(

I realized this because I had them activate it in store the second I bought it and was playing around until I got home, which took far, far, far, far too long.

Synced, bought about $30 in apps within 20 minutes and went to town.

Also note, the thing comes almost completely charged, so you don't have tons to worry about there :)

Finally opened them up last night, and played until 2am :D

They just will not connect to my AT&T 2wire router tho, just won't take the password. So hopped on Neighbors open WiFi

Don't care too much, we are moving in 8 days and pulling out AT&T service this weekend most likely......

I had a 4.5 hour drive home from the apple store I picked mine up in. So I waited 4.5 hours and 1 second exactly. ;)

I yelled out at the FedX guy as he pulled up in the driveway to tear the box open and have my iPad ready for me while I climbed down two flights of stairs to get to him. By the time I got down, he didn't want to give it up :p
