There are so many neat features about this tablet. It's a good size for web browsing, the depth of screen shown in the pic above is actually (in my opinion) preferable to the flat grey of the Kindle, and hell, apparently it's only $500. If, of course, you only want Wi-Fi and 16 GB.
I know there are some people out there who do not particularly approve, but I actually sort of wish I hadn't bought my little netbook six months ago.
I'm not going to buy one, though. You know why, Apple?
You named it the iPad.
Do you have no women on your marketing team? I am not the only person that immediately thought:
Come on, people. The iPod was fine - cute, even. The iPhone made perfect sense. What's wrong with iTab? iBook? iAnythingThatIsn'tPeriodRelated?
Of course, there are the folks that disagree with my assessment.
This post kicked off a very angry conversation with Chewbacca.
Chewbacca: your fb post made Chewbacca very angry.
emma: the iPad one?
Chewbacca: yes. You are widening the gap between men and women so we will not get along with each other
Chewbacca: or attempting to.
Chewbacca: it is really mean
emma: it's not me
emma: it's Apple naming it the iPad
Chewbacca: no. its that you have no other thought than to associate to "girl power"
Chewbacca: what other words isn't apple allowed to use?
emma: i'm just sayin it's bad marketing
Chewbacca: I am not sure I am gonna let my wife hang out with you anymore.
Chewbacca: until you show signs of supporting the opposite sex as much or more than your own.
emma: more, huh?
Chewbacca: well you have dug yourself quite a hole to get out of.....missy
There you go. Not only is the iPad an awesome little tablet thingy, it's name is going to be the last straw in the battle of the sexes.
