The Oscars Featuring Steve Jobs and iPad Commercials

The 2010 Academy Awards took place yesterday and guess who was spotted on the red carpet by Wayne Sutton? None other than ‘the man’ himself, Steve Jobs. That’s right folks, he was probably there to support Pixar with the nominations Up! received.

Also interesting to note was the first official iPad commercial debuted last night too. Featuring a dizzying array of iPad functions it surely wet the appetites of viewers for the much anticipated April 3rd launch date. I know I want one. Do I need one though? Nope. But I want one. 🙂

Here’s the commercial if you missed it (it’s also up on the Apple website):

So did your Oscar predictions come true? Christopher Waltz definitely deserved his Oscar for his performance in Inglourious Basterds.

Thanks Philippe for the email!
