KTLA Reporter Uses Old iPad to Report About New iPad

Apple couldn’t have staged it any better. When Rich DeMuro encountered satellite truck problems this morning while reporting from San Francisco about the 10 a.m. PT unveiling of the latest iPad, he found a synergistic solution.

Using his iPad 2 and a Skype connection, the KTLA Morning News reporter was able to beam back down to LA, no problem.

After the report, DeMuro tweeted: “I could get used to the whole iPad live shot thing. It’s a pretty amazing use of technology.” Everywhere, owners of the soon-to-be outdated model are cheering.
