Apple is trying to change the world again with the announcement of the iPad, a tablet, touch-screen PC that looks like an iPhone for old people. When iFirst heard Apple was going to launch a tablet PC, iThought of the name iTablet but iSuppose that was too druggy for Apple. But when iHeard Apple called the device iPad, iImmediately thought of tampons and iAm a man. iThink Apple has unwittingly provided fodder for stand up comedians and may have to change the name to something like iTouch-Big, iMoses or iAintKnow.
On the iPad, people will be able to do almost everything a touch-screen laptop can do, including porn, without being able to fold it in. The iPhone, iPod and the iTouch were game changers but the iPad might be the long anticipated flop Apple’s critics and competitors were waiting for. From what iRead, the iPad offers no advantage over a laptop other than it looks not-too-trendy. Apple people are noted for using Apple devices to make an ego statement and are the type who is fond of being envied. Nobody is going to spend money on a device, regardless of how functional it is, if they are going to be called Moses by strangers while waiting at the airport.
