I like how he has a review for Techies and a review for other people. Doesn't really say much new though.

Stephen Fry is an Apple fanatic! He just loves the computers! He has a load of mac minis and other machines. If you watch his series Kingdom, everyone in it has an iPod and an iMac or macbook pro! lol

Amazing reviews. Love the one from PC Mag and the video walk through, can't believe how fast the device runs!! Apple iPad Review with Video and Photos - At A Glance - Reviews by PC Magazine (http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2362040,00.asp)

Here's Stephen Fry's write up about his first encounter with the iPad (http://www.time.com/time/business/article/0,8599,1976935-4,00.html) as well as meeting Ive, Schiller and Jobs.

Makes the other reviews feel rather pedestrian.

Probably the best is 1hr 14min of MacBreak poking at the pad - YouTube - twit's Channel (http://www.youtube.com/twit) being the most obvious place to find it.
