A Current Affair will get a mention on Media Watch for sure over that story. Several Mactalk members have had ipads delivered. ACA ipad may not necessarily be the first in Australia. Where did they get the price from starting from $600 mark. Poor journalism unconfirmed facts.

Did they call the iPad a dole bludging, single mother, alcoholic and drug addicted antisocial queue-jumping illegal immigrant tablet computing device which needs to lose weight and get bigger breasts?

Basic summary of ACA report. Stand out the front of apple store George street with an ipad claim its the first in AUS. Make up a starting price gauge peoples reaction to the ipad and play youtube clips from the American launch. Through in the HP slate ad just not to seem biased. Dont get me wrong i love the Ipad and I will be one of the first at George street store to get one. The coverage was nothing we didnt already know.

LOL. Australia doesn't need another Peter Blasina. The people that think they know it all (and the press shows them that way, too) but in the end they're not any more tech savvy then anyone else on this forum with more then 300 posts.

oh the ACA coverage was woeful. It looked so awkward, delivered poorly and just no sense of...i cant even finish what i want to say its just bad. Why don't Australian TV shows know how to cover technology? in comparision to the US, colbert report, john stewart, jimmy fallon and even their news shows (yes even fox) have pretty good coverage and discussion on Tech, especially Apple news.

Its just embarrassing here i swear. When i see these i cringe and it shows how backward we are in most cases.

Ahhh yes, Pete. He was on the morning show the other day talking about the iPad. Yet he did not have one to show. At least ACA have one up on 7.

Yeah the coverage seemed to be moreso about the hype surrounding iPad than the device itself. But then that is ACA...

I am in shock they said they were the only ones with one in Aus... How blinkered.
