The crafty cats at iPhone Dev Team have cracked the iPad 3G so that the device can send SMS messages. It's a no-nonsense hack, working at the command line only, but as you'll see in the video it's entirely legit:
When I see people carrying an iPad, i feel the same way that Maddox feels about people who wear crocs:
"When I see people wearing Crocs, I know immediately that we have nothing in common, and that we could never be friends or have any meaningful kind of relationship. [...] The only thing that goes with Crocs is social ostracism.
To their credit though, Crocs serve as an excellent idiot barometer; you can tell a lot about people wearing them."
