    Why aren't there any geeks as attractive as her where I live? :(

    dirtyferretsimple; she can barely read the lines and I work in TV advertising. I have worked with plenty of talent to know what a professional sounds like regardless of their looks. I actually write the scripts and choose the talent for many a promo. I also never stated she looked attractive or made comments on her intelligence, you did. I think she looks rather plain for talent and reads even worse. I also never stated anything about my looks, seems like you have issues with yours though. My current and previous girlfriends never seemed to have issue with my looks so I guess I look good enough for them and for myself. You on the other hand, seems Freud would have a field day with your slips and lack of self esteem.


    First of all...
    "On the other hand, it seems that Freud would have a field day with your slip-ups and lack of self esteem". Had to do that. Sounded terrible. Anyway...

    Why so worked up? :) 
    By the way, blind girlfriends don't count... is that statement still true? ;) 
    Who said I have issues with my looks? I like the fact that I have four legs and hooves...

    Anyway, isn't the information the same? I don't care if a potato tells me the review... it'll still be the same information. By the way, flinging up flimsy defenses (like "I work in TV advertising"... how convenient, and "My current and previous girlfriends...") in order to prove that you are somehow better than I am (isn't that what you're trying to do?) isn't a good strategy.

    I'll have you know I'm the president of Greenland, I command an army that's hidden on the dark side of the moon, I have several thousand girlfriends and one turtlefriend (it's complicated), and it seems Aristotle would have a field day with your PURE EVIL!

    Video reviews are easier to remember than documented reviews. That said, traditional reviews are easier to navigate

    dirtyferretwow, toms is that desperate for eyeballs that they stooped to using a stupid model? she can barely read the telestrator. toms slides down the desperate scale even further. I'll go to anandtech & techspot for my ipad review, at least they still have their legitimacy. stick to straight reviews toms, other sites on the internet show T&A better then you and more of it. people will go there when they want to see it.


    How do you know that she doesn't know what's going on? What basis do you have to... base that on? Are you implying that someone can't be "smart" (although you don't have to be in order to report on hardware) and attractive at the same time? Just because you think you're smart and ugly doesn't mean everyone is...

    She's not a geek. She struggles to utter the numbers as if she didn't know the hell what they mean.

    Can't help but think this is a little too late to the party - most sites have had their iPad 3 video reviews up for about a month now. I'm guessing this is more of an experiment into further video based articles as the site progresses though, which is a great idea.

    In terms of the video itself, I'd rather have one of the big guys at Tom's be the host. Secondly, while the swipes on the iPad's screen for shifting between segments could be a nice touch, it is very frustrating to watch as the swipes don't line up with the movement of the video - the onscreen video swipes across far far slower than the finger slides which just makes it look sluggish.

    To all the trolls bitchin about a hot chick giving a review... Get over it. She is definitely not going to be put up for any awards for her performance but I think the same thing every time I see G4. No matter how you slice it, cute girls and hot tech go good together. In my opinion it is a lot like apple pie and vanilla ice cream.

    what happened with high res? i mean sure she was cute, but wouldn't it be better to see her in better quality video?
