Introducing iPad 2 and Smart Covers Videos Now on YouTube

by on March 2nd, 2011

Apple’s YouTube channel was updated earlier today to include two new videos (which are also on Apple.com). The first video is titled, “Introducing iPad 2” and second one is called “Introducing the iPad Smart Cover.”

Here’s the first video–introducing iPad 2. Don’t you just love how Ive pronounces ‘aluminum’?

…and here’s the second. I think the Smart Covers are really innovated, but I wonder how the magnetic latch will affect the iPad’s aluminum casing over time. Plus, the microfibre part of the case will most definitely pick up dust and dirt when it’s resting on a table.

Also, if you haven’t seen it yet, the iPad 2 Keynote is now online.

  • For the record, Ives is not pronouncing ‘aluminum’. He is pronouncing ‘aluminium’, which is the proper name for the element Al. It ends with ‘ium’ as with many other elements. (Sodium, Helium, Radium, etc.)

    ‘aluminum’ is just a made up word used by Americans who can’t pronounce 5 syllable words. (or the word ‘nuclear’)
    It’s a shame that the Apple Canadian store also misspells the name of the metal, but the UK store is correct.

    Before a flame war ensues:
    The metal was named aluminium by it’s discoverer Humphry Davy, and it was also used correctly in the US until middle of the last century. Only when the use of the metal was commonplace and the people on the street started saying aluminum.

    If you think about it, saying aluminum is as ridiculous as saying ‘nucelar’, which will probably end up being the official spelling soon in the US.

    In 1990, to fight this, International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry officially declared the name to be
    aluminium, but I don’t think it made a difference for people other than those who read scientific papers.

    Yes, it is a pet peeve of mine!
