Happy birthday iPad Wi-Fi!

One year ago today Apple released the original iPad Wi-Fi (the 3G version followed at the end of the month). A lot of us here at TiPb, staff and readers placed our online orders or lined up in person to bring one home and have been enjoying them ever since.

For nostalgia's sake, here's TiPb's original iPad launch day coverage, our original iPad review, and our iPad 6 months later retrospective. Whether you've had your iPad for a year now, got it at some point in between, waited for iPad 2, or are still waiting and trying to decide if iPad is for you, take a look back and then share your thoughts with us.

What do you think of iPad one year later?

Apple airs new iPad 2 commercial -- We Believe

Apple has released a new commercial for the iPad 2 called We Believe. In what feels like a sequel to the first iPad commercial, What is iPad?, it focuses on Apple's belief that "Technology Is Not Enough", and that you have to go beyond the technology (and specs!), to make the experience, more delightful (and dare we say it -- magical).

You can find the full advert after the break, and let us know what you think.
