    No, it doesn`t. The ipad is still worthless. You can sleep easy now.

    It does make the ipad sort of useful, although not useful enough to be worth having...and you could probably spend less money buying specialist devices to do all those things better and all at the same time, which would prevent things like not being able to have a map on your dashboard because it`s being a photo frame on a wall at home. A $500 photo frame.

    Some of them were pretty pointless but all in all it was pretty cool and some of them were actually kinda clever. If it wasn`t for the fact that you`d have to leave velcro all over the world this might actually be a decent way to use your iPad.

    Yes, it`s very smart to put it near a STOVE, or on the CEILING, or on a freaking MOTORCYCLE. It`s what, $500 dollars? You`re placing the life of that in the hands of Velcro. No matter how awesome or strong Velcro is, it`s extremely stupid to trust it with something expensive. I`m sorry, I`m being dumb. I just can`t afford something like that, and I sure as hell couldn`t afford to replace something like that.

    I`m sorry, it`s pretty clear you haven`t witnessed the intense power of velcro. They put that sh*t on CHILDRENS SHOES. Velcro can make ANYTHING stay ANYWHERE.

    Just imagine, pay $600ish dollars and buy some stick on velcro, stick some on the back of the IPad, and more EVERYWHERE you can think, including walls, and you have yourself a very expensive picture frame.

    Now imagine if the driver hits a guardrail.
    Now imagine the passenger side airbags being deployed.

    Have you figured where I`m going with this?

    @ruy-guy: no, you can`t all they did was look up the route on google maps or something before leaving. The iPad doesn`t have a satellite gps in it.

    i still think the iPad is ridiculous for the price and Steve Jobs is like a hypno toad with a turtle neck that lures people in and rapes them. That being said, this idea in the video is rather clever i will admit. Though i would have to have some super strong velcro, i wouldnt trust velcro to hold it everytime. Especially the ceiling and the motorcycle.

    Yes, that`s exactly what I want to see driving down the road at high velocity: a motorcycle with an iPad stuck to its gas tank. Actually, I think I`d like to see the reaction of the motorcycle guy when his iPad gets pulled off the Velcro strip and flies off past him.

    the fact that you have to stick velcro to the back of a ridiculously expensive product in order to make it useful just shows the huge design flaw with the iPad. Damn Apple got this so wrong, but luckily for them, most people are too stupid to realise...

    "The fact that you have to stick velcro to the back of a ridiculously expensive product in order to make it useful just shows the huge design flaw with the iPad".

    Erm, as I`ve said before, it`s useful for me without the velcro.

    It does everything the Kindle does to begin with, and the kindle is useful standalone.

    1. Ipad + Airbag, aye, crash smash, touchscreen face.
    2. Ipad picture frame, not new, not work £479 for a £50 digital picture frame.
    3. Ipad to tell you the weather. Now, this one made me choke with the idiocy. Why will it every be necessary to read that the weather is overcast instead of just looking out of the window the Ipad is stuck to...
    4. Ipad video chef. Actually not to bad an idea, excluding the hot grease inevitable flying off the pan along with the heat above a gas stove. Yeah...
    5. Ipad ceiling cinema. Aye, 9.7 inches from 7 ft away, true HD has never looked so clear.
    6. Motorbike GPS. Lol. Do I even need to comment?
    useful if your a total retard who travels slower then 15mph and does not lean the bike whatsoever.
    7. The bathroom, lougne and Kids room TV`s. Great, £479 for a 10 inch TV, that can only be used in one room at once and isn`t reaally a TV either.


    So, Ipad + Velcro = </3

    I like how when Steve Jobs presents a new product, he actually manages to make it seem like, everybody should have one. From Joe Millionaire to some African guy. The difference is, outside of the G8 countries, the Ipad is an item for those who live in the lap of luxury, or it`s a completely useless item.

    I live in Canada, and it`s a useless item for me.
