Follow up: Control clicked on the link and selected the download option and was able to view the video in QuickTime on my desktop.

Using a PowerBook G4 running OS 10.5.11 and the newest version of QuickTime Pro, on a DSL connection and when I just click on the link I get the black screen and the QuickTime controller and the spinning spoke at the end of the URL window the spinning lasts less than a minute and then stops, this makes me think the video has completely downloaded, with your suggestion I waited for over two minutes and the result was the same no video.

A suggestion: turn the iPad back-lighting down until you get a good balance between the screen, your hands and your (physical) desk top; then lock the aperture setting on your video camera. Without the aperture locked, every time your hand moved in front of the screen, the aperture opened up, lighting the desk better, but washing out the screen.
I do appreciate you rushing this video out so that we can get a better look at the iPad.

I am interested in how it will handle and enhance multi-media. I saw the SI YouTube sneak preview a while back. Any publications trying this? Any Apps or videos on iTunes being sold to exploit this slides/video/audio capability?
Also, I again saw no mention of audio. How is it? Seems MacWorld could care less or its just not impressive. No mention in the pre-previews either.
The rest of the review was great. Thanks for getting it out so fast and succintly. This thing is going to be just the start of a BFD!!!
