OK. I understand that the iPad is flawed. It doesn't run Flash, it doesn't have a really usable keyboard, it isn't a phone, it's missing USB and a video camera, blah, blah, blah. All right! I get it! All my life people have been telling me, 'Your too small Pre', 'Your not fast enough Pre', 'Give up your foolish dream Steve'. But they forgot something, I HAVE TO WIN....whoa. Sorry. I kind of went all Prefontaine for a minute there....
As I was saying, I understand that the iPad is just a giant, super sexy cool, totally awesome $500 toy. But all your hate combined and rolled up into a giant, super critical hate ball doesn't keep me from wanting it, loving it, being totally jealous of everyone that has it, and even kind of wanting to move to Massachusetts to marry it.
I want to caress its touchscreen, pinch, multiswipe, and flick my way through screen after screen full of apps and pictures and songs and things that Steve Jobs hasn't even thought of yet, yet alone developed an ad campaign for to convince me that I need it.
So, after stumbling across this video today, I am more convinced than ever that I must have a Pad. Though the most magical thing that I'll likely ever do with it is install apps for reviewing A/V gear, and I'll never even dream of doing anything with it nearly as cool as this guy, known as Shinya or, more oddly-cool as Salary Magician, at least we'll be kindered spirits. Plus, watching this just makes you know that David Blaine and Criss Angel would totally be lame PCs. Plus, I really like how he's screen capped here all John Cusack Say Anything style.
