And lo, the iPad went on sale internationally - but not before the record-holding world's tallest married couple made an appearance at the London Apple store, dressed in full wedding attire. Publicity stunt? Your guess is as good as mine.
Apparently the couple met at the Tall Persons Club, with Keisha Bolton measuring 6 feet 5 inches (196cm) tall, and husband Wilcox van Kleef coming in 7 feet (213cm) tall. Whether it was a publicity stunt on Apple's behalf or Bolton and van Kleef's, I'm not sure. Either way, they are now officially the world's tallest married couple to own iPads. Ugh. [Wired]
UPDATE: We've just heard that the Guinness Book of World Records was also at the launch, pushing their app - and presumably using the couple as a (large) visual illustration of the (useless) knowledge you can learn after downloading it.
