iJustine: “Very nice document”. Are you kidding. How can you really get a true review. You can send her a ton of bricks with an Apple logo on it and she will go nuts in happiness.

IJustine. Oi.
“Pink is my favorite color.” Opens pink iPad to reveal it looks silver. “It’s subtle.” Compares it to iPad Pro…”I guess this isn’t pink either.”

They all feel phoned in, but her unboxing might have been the most forced.
