    I can see it being useful. Have the storyboards, animatics, or script on it so they don't have to lug around a physical copy.

    Of course for all we know, Bay was bragging about his high score on Frogger & had the screenshot to back-up his claim. Needless to say, Dempsey was impressed. Megan Fox, wasn't when Bay showed her...a few days later, she 'left' Transformers 3.

    I still want an ipad..... My girlfriends sister got one and they really are a lot of fun to play with. The typing is kind of hard but you get used to it very quickly.

    He may direct the movie with the Ipad, but he casts the actors with his wang apparently.

    "yeah, I'm gonna replace the tart with another super tart, and uh...lets make it 3D since I wanna compensate".

    At least he's not using an Iphone 4, since then the movie would only get done when he's holding it right, or using the Ibumper.

    I don't get on so well with the Apple brower so far. I don't have an Ipad but I do have a touch screen computer so I get some of the effect of an ipad it's useful to have sometimes I tend to touch the screen to "tweet" on the twitter website it's easier than moving the mouse to the right place to tweet.
