The iPad has been hacked. In fact, the Apple tablet was compromised just minutes after it went on sale this past weekend, courtesy of a well-known Apple hacker who has also broken into the iPhone and iPhone 3G.

The hacker, who goes by the Internet moniker MuscleNerd, was able to "jailbreak" the iPad without too much hassle. In a video he posted online, Nerd claims to have gained root access to the device in a matter of minutes.

The video displays him entering some sort of code on a computer monitor and watching as it links to the iPad and voids the warranty in the most glorious way possible.
