Jobs was also on hand, in his words, "To see Up win," which it did, so perhaps he was good luck.&nbsp;</p>

I think it is hilarious how this article's video could not even be viewed on an iPad since it uses Flash. I so want an iPad but not without this one feature!

What you posted is even more hilarious given that the article's embedded video doesn't use flash (I just viewed it on my iPhone).

I notice they cut away just before the guy started trying to type on the keyboard. I doubt that touch-typing will be very accurate on the thing without some kind of tactile feedback.
