Live Apple "Come see our latest creation"

I have not been ravenously following the streamed coverage of the iPad release, but I did note that the NYT was the first site Jobs presented during the demo.

I really hope someone from Improv Everywhere runs up the center aisle, whirling a hammer around her head. It’s very significant, of course, that Apple is counting on bloggers to drive the media coverage of the unveiling.. Leveraging the devotion of the Apple fans who tend the online “garden of pure ideology” is lots cheaper than buying a Superbowl ad.

Of course, the iPad name has a bit of history, courtesy of MadTV. (“Please don’t make us explain how it works.’)
