Man, people are tearing the iPad apart! Aside from the numerous sanitary napkin jokes (I’m not putting a specific link – just google “iPad jokes” if you’ve got a free hour or so), many of the iPad’s potential users are having fairly lukewarm reactions to Apple’s newest release.
A lot of people are saying “it’s a cross between an iPhone and a laptop”. One commenter said “it fills the gap between a phone and a laptop”, to which Martin’s blog has this to say:
“What gap? This is not a gap I have ever experienced in my working or social life before. You can’t just make up a gap and then invent a product to fill it. That’s like saying there’s a gap between a fridge and an oven, and trying to sell a kitchen unit that keeps all your food lukewarm to fill it. Or saying there’s a gap between cars and bikes, so lets make a car you can pedal. Who the hell wants a car that you can pedal? Who the hell wants an iPad?”
hehehe…he’s right. But if someone gave me a car I could pedal for free, I’d take it. I’d take an iPad for free, too.
