So that’s 700,000 people (maybe) walking around toting Apple’s new wonder machine. No doubt they are all very happy with their purchase. Well, at least 699,999 of them: “Dont know if i like my new ipad :(“, producer Swizz Beatz tweeted last night. When it comes to super-hyped high-tech consumer products, I guess Swizz is already on to the next one. On the other hand, the nifty “it” gadget certainly brought a smile to Jake Gyllenhaal‘s face, and Entourage star Adrian Grenier tweeted over the weekend that he loves being one of the “nerds” in San Francisco who ran out to pick one up.
