Tweet It: iPads vs iPhones Showdown [Video]
by on October 20, 2010

I should’ve posted this video sooner, but didn’t get around to watching it until earlier this evening. It’s a hilarious spoof of Michael Jackson’s Thriller video (with some well rehearsed dance moves!) but with a twist: it’s a showdown between iPads versus iPhones.
