Now I know who to turn to whenever I need someone to announce new Escapist products! Genius.

Thought it was a little slow for a while, but the iPotato Store got me!

I think I'd prefer an iPotato over an iPad...

Hithlain:
If you added that wink to the end of anything, I'm pretty sure you have a marketable product on your hands.

"And I should know, because my name is Max," much?

God I hope someone gets that. >_>;

Great video as always, my LRRd-and-master! The iPotato certainly looks...compelling.

I got it. But I didn't notice the parallels until now.

Great video, LRR, especially the internet joke.

I cant believe how long he talked about a potato

The sad part?
People would probably still buy it and claim it is hugely superior to normal potatoes.
Great episode, though, keep it up guys.

They get props for being able to talk about a potato for four and a half minutes.

Someone may have already said this, but i'm gonna say it anyways, coz i'm a horticulturalist and i am qualified to correct these little slights -

ITS NOT A LEGUME! ITS A FRICKIN TUBER! IT GROWS IN THE GROUND, NOT IN A POD!! ITS A ROOT FOR GODS SAAAAAAAAKKKKKEEEEEESSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!

...Okay. Got that outta my system. I understand that the writers were probably emphasizing Apple's ignorance, but if not, GRRRR!!!

sweeeeet ya know poutine!!!!!

Its not playing, Every time I try and play it, it just shows the 5 minute escapist ad...

@ everybody who desperately wants this model...

If I were you, I'd wait until the iPotato S comes out next year. Trust me, it'll be worth the wait! Just think about it. One whole extra letter!

btw, the "s" stands for "sweet".... >.>;

Yeah, I'm having this problem as well :(

"That's not a market we're interested in. *wink*"

Oh Graham, you coy devil!

Yeah a potato is not a Legume.

the Microsoft version would be a bit more black
and be infested with some things

imagine the ads tho: "I'm a potato"
=D we need that as a follow-up

Onyx Oblivion:
I never owned a single Apple product.

And I'm proud of that.

don't be too proud, Uwe Boll looks down on that kind of attitude (lol see other LRR vid)

I have no love for Apple, but I can't stand Microsoft's crap (I've heard great things about Linux but then again I know a lot of computer science majors...)

reminds me of madTV's iRack skit

Heh, that was pretty funny. Graham's acting was awesome, too.

Damn it I love you guys, everything you've done is solid gold.

does it have flash?

"It will be available on-line next week...
International in June.. maybe..."

Ehh, so true, so true.

The line "Can it multitask" got me giggling the most

As if the iPotato is some cook hehe

yet, somehow this legume.... I mean tuber, seems more useful than an iPad

Bit after the credits was nicely done. :)

*wink*
super awesome this week too bad the biggest laugh was for after the credits :)

Hmm. I wonder about that tune myself. It is catchy...

But, given that the intro at the very least has been something LoadingReadyRun has been using since at least 2004, it'd be hard to tell.
They may even have come up with it themselves.
(LoadingReadyRun's original website has a rather heavy C64 theme going...)

No, I mean it is actually a SID, from the HVSC. See: LoadingReadyWiki

Huh. You are correct. According to the wiki, the 'theme' is:
'The Sporting News Baseball' from the HVSC (http://hvsc.c64.org/)

That's from a game, I guess?

bring back Rapidfire =D

I mean 'yes.' http://www.c64.com/games/screenshots/s/sporting_news_baseball_the_05.gif

OMG PAUL'S GROWING A BEARD BACK WOO! \o/

Hurray! The world is balanced again!

um... Idaho? There's already been an Ipotato. Tards. :)

Closest thing to an Apple idea I'd buy into than anything actually coming out of Apple!

Onyx Oblivion:

Same :)

Apple presents potato ey :P

Darn it

Looks MOIST and DEELEESHUS.

Potato make me STROOOONG.

This seems like a well-aimed stab at the pointlessness of the iPad.

*Do not read if you do not like jokes explained to you.*

Yes, a potato is not a legume. Legumes are vegetable such as peas, they come in "pods"...
