In Apple we trust

Here is a PJ - What do iPad and Amitabh Bachchan have in common? - People can't get tired of them and both seem to be permanently camped in the TV stations.

Some observations on the iPad Launch:

a) Very surprised by the number of non-Americans who flew to the US just to buy the device at 9am !

b) The apple cult still amuses me - camping overnight outside the store.

c) Most iPad buyers seem to be Apple fans - they already own iPod, Mac, iPhone. Can it go mainstream beyond the fan base?

d) Very surprised that Google & Amazon ( the key competitors for Apple's iPad) were the first to develop apps for the iPad.

d) Its the closest a tech company can get to a religious cult - Steve Jobs is a messiah and there are millions of followers around the globe. Well done Steve !
