Guys, stop cribbing about the cover for God's sake. It's after all just a cover and the thing would be marvelous even without it. The great news is not iPad2 but seeing Job's at his brilliant best. May he live long!

Good to know that steve jobs is on stsge for the launch. Apple ipad2 is certainly priced lesser compared to the XOOM, but does it have any contract arrangements like XOOM has with Verizon. It will be big hit if it has a higher battery life nad more portable.

I'd be more impressed if it could handle Flash. I'm still waiting for the full implementation/rollout of HTML5 and/or Gianduia. Or do I need to wait for iPad5?

I wonder if the smart cover messes up the magnetic stripe on your credit card if you accidentally put them together.

The best part was knowing that Steve is doing great. That was the show for me. Apple leads, others follow.

I also agree that the magnetic cover is a brilliant idea. Although I have a little suspect on how firm the cover can be attached to the iPad2 as I didn't any holes or slot for the cover to stay firm at a particular position. I really want to touch it personally!

http://www.apple.com/ipad/smart-cover/ If the cover can be "rolled" up in either sides, well then, it's really a smart cover. How Apple price their product is even more genius than how they make it! Technically speaking, there are still too many unknown of iPad 2. Is Apple going to change the specification in last minutes to knock down Xoom?

The inventing of magnetic cover is indeed smart which is comparable to the magnetic hook switch that was invented by Motorola years back on cellular phone.

http://www.apple.com/ipad/smart-cover/ The Smart Cover and iPad 2 were made for each other. Literally. Built-in magnets draw the Smart Cover to iPad for a perfect fit that not only protects, but also wakes up, stands up, and brightens up your iPad. That’s not just smart. It’s genius.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
